Find Used Isuzu's in Utah

Isuzu means "50 bells," and it is the name of a river that flows through a province dotted with ancient Shinto shrines in Japan. The company's roots are in Tokyo and started in 1916. The Tokyo Ishikawajima Shipbuilding and Engineering Company decided to broaden its business to include automobile manufacturing. They found a union with the U.K.-based Wolseley Motor Company, and rolled out the A9 car and the first truck, the CP. The Isuzu name came about in 1949. After the war, Isuzu trucks were highly successful. In 1959, it produced the world's first two-ton light-duty forward-control truck. The passenger car line was expanded with the Florian, the Bellett and the 117 Coupe, as well as trucks like the WASP. Isuzu joined a partnership with General Motors in 1971, and by the 1980’s the vehicles were introduced to America. The Pup was the first Isuzu sold in the U.S. market. The Trooper, possibly Isuzu’s most well known vehicle, was introduced in 1983. It was an SUV, two or four door, and quickly became popular in the SUV category. A joint venture with Subaru in 1987, led to the production of the Isuzu Rodeo and the Isuzu Pickup. Over the years, the Trooper became more refined, more luxurious, and larger. It contributed to Isuzu’s strong sales in the 1990’s. It was also responsible for popularizing the SUV in America. In 1999, GM became the role of majority shareholder to Isuzu. Sales dropped in the last ten years, as the SUV market expanded with a huge increase in makes and models. The Rodeo and the Axiom (a crossover SUV) were dropped from the lineup in 2004. Currently, Isuzu's lineup comprises just two vehicles — a truck and an SUV, both of which are based on GM products.

Utah Used Isuzu Cars

With its headquarters in Tokyo, Japan, Isuzu's range includes small to medium compact automobiles, and medium to large duty commercial trucks and SUVs. But for the most part, in this country, all a used car buyer would find are their SUVs and pick up trucks. It has been years since Isuzu last rolled out a car in the U.S. Isuzu has seen its share of hard times in the recent years; a lack of funding for both new product investment and marketing has forced the company to rely heavily on its partnership with GM. Thus, making the current Isuzus based mainly on GM products.
The original Isuzu Trooper came about during the early 1980s. The Trooper was fairly successful, despite its plain and utilitarian looks, so there are plenty of these used SUVs around. It has a boxy, two-door body, however older versions are fairly underpowered, with only a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine. There are also four door Troopers available in the used car market, and a V6 engine. The 2002 Trooper has much more luxury to it than its predecessors. Isuzu's full-time Torque-On-Demand (TOD) system comes on all 4WD Troopers with automatic transmissions. It has unique rear cargo doors, with a large left-side door that carries the spare tire and a smaller right-side door. The Trooper is quiet even on the highway, it offers a high quality diving experience and plenty of space inside. The real bargain is the Trooper Limited trim, which came about in the 1995 model year, and was renamed the Luxury model in 1997. These used SUVs have a power sunroof, leather upholstery, heated seats and wood grain trim. All at an affordable price, only a few hundred dollars more than the base model.
