The 5 passenger Isuzu Ascender

The Japanese company auto company Isuzu, is mostly known for trucks of all sizes. It had been quiet for sometime now.

One of the best selling Isuzu models has been the Isuzu Ascender. The design was derived from General Motors' Envoy. And if you look closely, it does look similar to the Chevy TrailBlazer as well. The 7-passenger Ascender which was launched in 2003, replaced the Isuzu Trooper. The 5-passenger model was introduced later in 2004. The production of the 7-passenger model was stopped in 2007.

Even though the Ascender looks like the models produced by General Motor's, it's much cheaper than either than them.

The 6-cylinder 4.2 litre V8 engine pumps out 291 hp @ 6,000 rpm. The transmission features a 4-speed automatic with lockup torque converter (in 3rd or 4th gears) and overdrive. This Isuzu SUV is ideal for everyday commuting as well as the occasional road trips. Go over to their site to get a quote. They are now offering an unbelievable 7 years and 75,000 mile power train limited warranty.
