Isuzu UTE Australia recently launched an ONYX Edition of its MU-X 4x4 LS-T, which is now up for order but limited to 420 units. The MU-X ONYX Edition is available in Obsidian Grey Mica and Silky White Pearl. The exterior, which according to Isuzu is “bolder, darker, and unmistakably special,” features shadow chrome and gloss black accents and Bi-LED headlights and LED daytime running lights that can be automatically activated by a dusk sensor.
The new model has a drive-away price of $56,990 and is covered by a Service Plus 6-7-7 package that includes a 6-year/150,000-kilometre warranty, 7-year capped price servicing, and up to 7 years of roadside assistance when you get service from an Isuzu UTE Australia dealer.
The interior of the MU-X ONYX Edition is a mix of style and function with quilted-leather accents, an electric driver’s seat, room for seven passengers and space for three ISOFix child seats, 12 cup holders, and 1,830 litres of storage when the split seats are folded down. Other features include a 6.8-inch infotainment system with support for Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, DAB+ Radio, and satellite navigation, as well as a 10-inch DVD screen and air conditioning vents in every row. There are also three total 12-volt outlets and three USB ports.

This exclusive Isuzu has a 3-litre turbo diesel 4JJ1-TCH HI engine that produces 174 horsepower (130 kilowatts) and up to 430 newton-metres of torque, a six-speed automatic gearbox with Terrain Command 4x4, and a multi-link coil suspension for off-road performance. It also features a Passive Entry and Start System. The MU-X ONYX Edition has a gross combination mass of 5,750 kilograms, a braked towing capacity of 3 tonnes, and a 230-millimetre ground clearance.
“The Most Desirable MU-X To Date”
“Since its debut back in December 2013, the Isuzu MU-X has found favour with Australian families, tourers, and adventure seekers, continuously evolving with updates to its performance, comfort, and off-road ability, which has cemented its place atop of the sales charts as the ‘best-selling Ute-based SUV’ for the last six years,” says Hiroyasu Sato, managing director of Isuzu UTE Australia. “For 2020, we’ve taken it a step further with bold and impactful exterior enhancements and the latest in smartphone connectivity, to make the MU-X ONYX Edition the most desirable MU-X to date.”
