Not too long ago, Isuzu SUVs were common in America. During the ’80s and ’90s, Isuzu sold numerous models in the U.S., in cooperation with General Motors. This gained them the reputation for being durable, dependable vehicles. However, Isuzu realized the future was in SUV models.
So in the early ’90s, they decided to produce the VehiCross, a new, highly capable lifestyle model. Behind this strange name was an even stranger vehicle in a three-door specification. It came with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and automatic transmission. Isuzu designed the VehiCross to be a futuristic off-roader, giving it their best all-terrain technology and components.
But, in 1997 when they presented the VehiCross, but the market just didn’t react the way Isuzu thought it would. should. The vehicle was strange looking and some people even said it was ugly. Although it came in crossover form, it was a capable and high-quality off-roader. That is why U.S. sales were slow. So in 2001, they discontinued the VehiCross.
