2003 Isuzu Ascender Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
We test drove many vehicles looking for
a quality mid-size SUV, Explorers, 2003
Cherokee's, Mountaineers, Envoy's, etc.
The last SUV we tested was a beautiful
black, 2003 Isuzu Ascender Limited (V8
4WD).it was impressive from the outside
and even more impressive on the inside.
Interior is beautifully crafted, of
great materials, and contained every
feature we could imagine.. the 3rd row
seat had plenty of room (unlike
Explorer's), and the seat folded down
much better than the one in the
explorer as well. During the test
drive, the vehicle handled like a much
smaller vehicle, with very little body
roll, road noise, yet with plenty of
V8 5.2 Ltr Engine.. Great Power, quiet,
and very, very smooth.
