Isuzu Axiom produced in the U.S. Subaru-Isuzu plant in Indiana from 2001 to 2004. The car debuted in April 2001, was originally designed for the U.S. market.
Previously, the company Isuzu focused attention on the off-road vehicle with a rugged chassis and extraordinary terrain parameters, the Axiom has higher road performance, based on the motion on good roads with a higher level of comfort.
Galvanized body is attached to a full frame. There is a reduction gear in the transfer case and locking center differential and limited-slip rear differential.
The reliability of the chassis Axiom provided by its origin, since it is made on the basis of Trooper, which, in turn, is descended from a small truck. Front suspension - independent torsion bar, and behind - beam axle with springs. The classical scheme for the SUV, a reasonable compromise between handling and durability in off-road use. And the suspension setup is quite comfortable, smooth ride on top.
Speaking of comfort.
Standard equipment includes full power accessories, cruise and climate control, automatic transmission, ABS, adjustable stiffness on suspension, sunroof, dual front airbags and a CD-changer. But the leather interior, electric and heated seats and mirrors, front fog - all these options.
Axiom received a 24-valve V6 3.5-liter, 215-hp. The engine is paired with a 4-range machine. Automatic transmission is combined with it pretty well, and if necessary, much more car picks up speed very fast. Acceleration to 100 km / h - in 9 seconds. It is noteworthy that the automatic transmission was inherited from the old Trooper unchanged.
