Isuzu has given its pick-up range an extensive upgrade both internally and externally.
The 2007 Rodeo will be powered by a new 2.5-litre common rail diesel engine kicking out 136hp. Featuring a variable geometry turbo, it is claimed to provide stronger pulling power throughout the rev-range.
Isuzu also plans to offer a Prodrive Performance Pack on the new Rodeo which will increase power to 160hp by altering the ignition timing and up rating the fuel supply. This boy-racer package will be standard on the range- topping Rodeo Denver Max LE.
Payload for ’07 models is rated at 1075kg with a towing capacity of 3000kg. Ground clearance is 205mm. With service intervals set at 12000 miles, the Rodeo has an entry price of £13,990 and comes in three specification levels, topping out at £19,990.
