Powerful, robust and modern. So are the two concepts presented by Isuzu that anticipate how the design of the future off-road vehicles of the Japanese brand could be. It's about the new Isuzu Concept X MU-X y D-Max, developed from the well-known series models of the SUV and the pick-up.
The designers of the Isuzu Team D-Max, a team of Australian professional drivers, worked to develop the Concept X. This is how they expanded the size of the axles and equipped the vehicles with huge 38-inch Toyo Open Country tires for off-road use.
These two models, which seem prepared for the most demanding challenges, Offering 38,5 and 49,7 degree rake and departure angles for outstanding off-road performance and capabilities. In addition to the size of the tires and the angles of attack and departure, the clearance was increased to 370 mm. The heart of both is the efficient 3-liter turbodiesel engine, coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Steel, aluminum, platinum and special alloys were used in different parts of the body to reinforce and prepare these two prototypes for the most demanding torsion tests. At the moment, there are no series production plans, but there are many users interested in owning one of these vehicles.
