With overseas travel looking somewhat unlikely for a while now, people are looking towards more home based travel, often towing a caravan or camper trailer. This week we have been driving one of the best tow vehicles available, the Isuzu MU-X LS-U model.
This is perhaps the sweet spot in the MU-X range especially when you consider the bang for your buck with features, capability, economy and ease of towing. The latest MU-X takes a great towing vehicle and makes it better.
The All-New MU-X combines the latest in driver-assist and safety technologies, improved capabilities including a class leading 3.5-tonne braked towing capacity and increased payload capacities for tourers and families who don’t pack light.

4WD models feature ‘Terrain Command’ 4WD, a Rear-Differential Lock and Rough Terrain Mode as standard.
The LS-U model is comfortable inside with premium cloth seats, clever slide out cup holders, dual zone air-conditioning, wireless Apple Car Play connectivity plus class leading safety features.
Over the years I have towed caravans, camper trailers, horse floats and car trailers with the MU-X and it handled them all with ease. It is perhaps the most economical tow vehicle available given the way the engine torque comes in low to help.
Isuzu MU-X LS-U is priced from $59,900 plus the usual costs.
