There are many options for tuning the Isuzu MU-X crossover, making it more passable off the beaten track. For example, metal bumpers from Hamer added brutality to this model.
Thanks to the new King Series bumper from the Hamer4x4 tuning studio, the appearance of the crossover is very different from the standard model. It is made of steel with a thickness of 3 mm and painted with powder paint in a matte black color, but if desired, it can be painted in the color of the body.
Four round LED blocks combine fog lights, turn indicators, daytime running lights, and parking lights. It is shorter than the standard bumper, which improves the angle of entry of the SUV. Despite the angular surface, it supports all factory sensors and is compatible with airbags and winches.
“This variant of the model has an additional arc protecting the headlights and radiator grille from collisions at low speed, which can easily occur during more demanding off-road driving. In addition to the Isuzu MU-X and D-Max models, Hamer off-road bumpers are also compatible with a wide range of pickups, including Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger.”
The second-generation Isuzu MU-X was introduced in 2020 based on the third-generation D-Max chassis with a ladder frame. The SUV is available either with a 1.9-liter turbo diesel with a capacity of 148 hp or with a 3.0-liter turbo diesel with a capacity of 187 hp. Power is transmitted to all four wheels via a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic.
MU-X is available in several markets including Australia, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, and South Africa. Direct competitors are other pickup-based SUVs, including the Ford Everest, Toyota Fortuner, and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.
