Isuzu Trooper - Generation 2 (1996-2005)

ISUZU TROOPER (1996-2005)

One of the first Isuzus, the Trooper arrived first with either a V6 gasoline or a diesel, with the former having an upgrade to DOHC in 1998. Later units sold from 1999 have the 3.0 diesel which was a subject of controversy due to failing injectors. Spin off variants of the 3.0di include the Skyroof and 2005 Edition.
