Isuzu Celebrates 5th Year of mu-X with Limited Edition mu-X Boondock
Five years after its market introduction, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) hosted a special Grand Family Event to celebrate its best-selling SUV, the Isuzu mu-X.
Held at the Filinvest Tent Alabang, IPC invited some 300 Isuzu vehicles coming from its big car clubs--Team Isuzu Pilipinas, Team Isuzu Car Enthusiast, and mu-X Owners Philippines--in a whole day of fun and activities like the car club motor show, mini games, parts & accessories display, Isuzu iconic vehicle display, and a free concert at the end of the day. "Introduced in 2014, the Isuzu mu-X became an instant hit to Filipino families nationwide, mainly due to its excellent performance, elegant styling and outstanding comfort--factors that are very important for a family vehicle," said IPC President Hajime Koso. During the event, IPC also introduced its latest addition to the mu-X line-up, a limited 5th year anniversary edition, the Isuzu mu-X Boondock. The Isuzu mu-X Boondock is more than just aesthetics, its lift kit suspension and off-road tires are designed for off-roading performance. The Boondock Edition is based on the popular 3.0-liter mu-X LS-A and is equipped with upgraded features to increase its ride height to 24 7mm and get that off-road look that the Boondock is known for. Running on the ever-reliable 4JJ1-TC Blue Power Engine, the mu-X Boondock can provide 175 hp maximum power and 380 Nm maximum torque, that is Euro 4-compliant. Completing its off-road look, the new Isuzu mu-X Boondock comes with a gray over-fender, newly- designed front bumper, steel step board with Boondock logo, and a fully-functional roof rail with crossbar, perfect for family road trips. "Isuzu mu-X Boondock Limited Edition is truly as special treat to the midsize SUV market. Coming from the success of the Boondock Series, this variant is a great addition to the mu-X line-up. Which has proven its outstanding performance, impressive design, comfort, safety and over-all reliability as family vehicle in the past five years," Koso added. Available in 4x2 automatic transmission, the mu-X Boondock comes exclusively in Havana Brown body color. For more information log on to www.isuzuphil.com.
