Isuzu has revealed Concept X, two hardcore adventure vehicles based on the KB and 7-seater mu-X SUV.
Isuzu has a loyal following in South Africa with the KB bakkie being the brand’s front-runner in terms of local sales. However, Isuzu has also expanded its local offering with the recent introduction of the 7-seater mu-X SUV that competes against the likes of the popular Toyota Fortuner, Ford Everest and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.
The recent reveal of Concept X shows the offroading potential of both the KB and the mu-X, both featuring customised fenders, bonnet, bull bars, sports bars and platinum winches at the front and rear.
Both are powered by a 3.0-litre turbodiesel engine and the KB-based Concept X stands 5 500 mm long, 2 150 mm wide and 2 100 mm high with a ground clearance of 370 mm. Approach angle is at 49.7° while the departure angle is at 38.5°.
The Concept X mu-X stands 5 000 mm long, 2150 mm wide and 2 100 mm high with a ground clearance of 370 mm. Approach angle is at 49.7° with a departure angle of 37.3°.
Both vehicles feature custom TBS Racing 6-piston calipers with 390 mm full-floating discs at the front while TBS Racing 4-piston calipers with 355 mm full-floating discs at the rear. A 7-inch suspension lift with independent front and multi-link rear coil suspension and custom 60 mm remote reservoir shock absorbers are also fitted. Concept X rides on 20-inch wheels shod with Toyo Open Country mud terrain tyres.
