Isuzu Ascender

Isuzu currently has only one SUV Ascender in its product lineup. The Isuzu car company is pulling back from the American automobile market due to great drop in its sales. From the later part of the 1990's the Isuzu has been under intense pressure of sustaining in the esteemed American market. Slowly it pulled back all its car models from the market.

At present Isuzu has only one SUV and other i-series Trucks for sale in the market. The Isuzu i-series trucks are basically pickup trucks. Ascender is the only car model which can be called a semi luxurious SUV with affordable price.

The Isuzu Ascender is a SUV that has ample space for accommodating five people. With its spacious design, comfort of the passengers has totally been at the forefront. Ascender has a 4.2 liter displacement with an inline 6-cylinder configuration. The 4.2 liter engine of the Ascender delivers performance of 285 horsepower at the 6000 rpm. At this speed, the power delivered by the engine is absolutely great.

The engine has sequential multi point fuel injection mode. The spark plugs inside the engine are platinum tipped with a coil on the ignition plug. The engine has been refined to deliver the most fuel efficient and comfortable ride. Ascender has a four speed automatic transmission with torque converter clutch. The engineers at Isuzu have made significant changes in the suspension of the Ascender.

The front suspension has an independent coil-over-shock with upper and lower control arms. The front suspension of the Ascender also has hydraulic double-acting shock absorbers. The rear suspension has five links with coil springs and direct hydraulic double-acting shock absorbers.

Ascender has four wheels ventilated disc brakes with dual-piston front calipers. The Isuzu has also equipped this SUV with four wheels Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) for the safety of the passengers. These features also help you to lower your car insurance premium from the insurer.

With a large fuel tank capacity of 21.7 gallons, you can keep going for miles without worrying. The Ascender has a great mileage for its class. A mileage of 14 miles per gallon in city and it increases up to 20 miles per gallon on the highways. So that means great savings for the ones who buy the Isuzu Ascender.

Ascender has been designed very gracefully with the interiors being extremely luxurious and spacious. The headroom, legroom, hip room and shoulder room all dimensions have been extended to accommodate five adults comfortably. The aerodynamic design has enhanced the vision of the driver in all the directions. Also with large mirrors, it does get better than that.

The Ascender, the SUV it is, has awesome air conditioning system, central display system, cd player with stereo speakers for you to have fun while riding. The ride quality of the SUV is also great, the maneuverability and handling of the Ascender is also superb and top notch. Sadly, for Isuzu the other car companies have itched it in the race with the supreme luxurious SUV's in their line ups. However, with a decent price and medium luxury Ascender is still a good option.
