Fuel prices are in constant limbo changes happening almost every week, with that in mind motorists are searching for vehicles that can go the extra mile both literally and figuratively in terms of fuel economy. To help motorists find the right car for them, Isuzu Philippines recently set up a one-full tank challenge for its passenger lineup of vehicles which includes the Isuzu D-MAX and the Isuzu mu-X. While these vehicles are already fuel efficient as it is, the Japanese automaker was able to push their efficiency further by posting triple-digit numbers with their recent test which brought these two vehicles from Subic to Ilocos and then to Bicol and back to their point of origin which was Isuzu Alabang. This test was also further verified by the Automobile Association of the Philippines.
Curious to find out what their numbers are? Well, here they are, the Isuzu D-MAX, the brand’s popular pickup truck equipped with the 3.0-liter turbo diesel engine was able to get a maximum total mileage of 1,564 kilometers on just one full tank with an average of 20.58km/L. Its SUV counterpart the Isuzu mu-X, on the other hand, was able to go further equipped with the same engine. It was able to do a maximum total mileage of 1,675 kilometers with an average of 20.94km/L. These are stellar numbers, especially for those looking for their next SUV or pickup truck. This goes to show that Isuzu is still holding strong as one of the brands in the country with the most fuel-efficient lineup of vehicles. Equipped with the 4JJ3 Blue Power engines, these two vehicles give you not just durability and reliability but excellent fuel economy with every drive.
But there is more to these vehicles than just excellent maximum mileage fuel economy figures as these Isuzu owners have more to say about the brand’s popular pickup truck and SUV based on the reviews they have sent to us.
