Isuzu Ascender - car review

Photo Isuzu Ascender

Ascender was first shown at the Motor Show in New York in April 2002. This SUV was replaced in the model range of the company car Trooper. It was developed in the USA by design and design departments of the concern General Motors, which owns a 50% stake in Isuzu, on the platform of GMC Envoy XL. In order to reduce the cost of development and unification of the exterior of the car subjected to minimal changes, there were new chrome grille with six brand slots, slightly modified front bumper and headlights. Ascender is assembled at GM's plants in Moiraine (Ohio) and Oklahoma City (Oklahoma).

The car is offered in two versions - a basic 5-seater (4868x1897x1826) and an extended 7-seater (5273x1932x1917) with a wheelbase of 2,869 mm and 3,277 mm, respectively. The seven-seater version has become the flagship of the model range, especially since this is the first seven-seater SUV company for all its existence. Increased length allowed to place in the back of the car an additional third row of seats. Access to it is facilitated by a wide rear side door and an easily foldable backrest of the second row of seats.
