About This Model

Isuzu#39;s Trooper spanned two generations and 20 years, and the first generation model was downright agricultural when it debuted in 1981. As a result, it would be another three years before the mid-size SUV was introduced to the American market. On its debut, the 3,700-lb vehicle was powered by a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder mated to a five-speed manual transmission, which wasn#39;t exactly.

On its debut, the 3,700-lb vehicle was powered by a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder mated to a five-speed manual transmission, which wasn#39;t exactly what the American SUV buyer wanted.

Isuzu quickly introduced a more powerful 2.3-liter four, but the Trooper, which was available as either a two-door or four-door with either manual or automatic locking front hubs, was still woefully underpowered.

A 120-hp fuel-injected 2.6-liter four joined GM#39;s 2.8-liter V6 under the hood of the Trooper in 1987, and both could be ordered with an optional four-speed automatic transmission. Isuzu continued to increased the vehicles equipment, but time was running short for the aging Trooper in the competitive American market. The introduction of the Rodeo gave Isuzu the opportunity to move the Trooper significantly upmarket in 1991.

The second generation Trooper was larger and more luxurious, heavier, and powered by an Isuzu 3.2-liter V6 that produced 175 hp and 188 lb-ft of torque in single overhead cam form and 190 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque in duel overhead cam trim. Both could be ordered with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission, a choice most competitors didn#39;t offer.

The majority of Troopers were fitted with a part-time four-wheel-drive system, though a shift-on-the-fly unit was standard on the top line model. It would become standard equipment in all Trooper models from the 1997 model year.

In 1996, Isuzu began producing a version of the Trooper for Honda#39;s Acura division dubbed the Acura SLX, and Isuzu also increased the standard equipment level on the Trooper. In 1998, engine displacement was increased to 3.5 liters, and only the dual overhead cam version with 215 hp and 230 lb-ft of torque was offered in the U.S. The addition of BorgWarner#39;s Torque On Demand system offered full-time four-wheel-drive for the first time.

The Acura variant was dropped in 1999, and the Trooper#39;s exterior styling was updated with a new grille and trim in 2000. Grade logic, the ability for the GM-supplied four-speed automatic transmission to automatically downshift and hold a lower gear on steep grades, also was added at this time. The Trooper#39;s place in the market was taken by both the Rodeo-based Isuzu Axiom and GMC Envoy-based Ascender after its demise at the end of the 2002 model year.
