Review of the 2004 Isuzu Ascender

  • Capable, roomy and packing optional V8 power, this is Isuzu's best truck.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong six- or eight-cylinder engines, simple interior design, plenty of passenger and cargo room.

  • Cons

    Spongy suspension, numb steering, low-grade interior materials, odd exterior proportions.

  • What's New for 2004

    A smaller, five-passenger version joins the lineup. The bigger Ascender is pretty much the same as last year, though Isuzu has added a bit of content and fiddled with the option packages. On base 2WD S models, the formerly standard keyless entry and side airbags are now optional. LS models now have a leather-wrapped steering wheel as standard and leather seating, formerly exclusive to the Limited trim, can be ordered as an option. For the Limited, driver-adjustable pedals are new this year.

Good so far

Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Ascender LS 5-Passenger Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

We traded in a 2002 Ford Explorer. The Ascender rides smoother and has more options than the aforementioned. I like the towing capabilities and options that are available on the Ascender. So far we have no complaints.

Vehicle: 2004 Isuzu Ascender LS 5-Passenger Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

We sure didn't know. We had been out looking for a new utility vehicle for the family and work for a little over two weeks and almost settled for a Mitsubishi Montero Limited. Now don't get me wrong I own two already a 1991 (still running strong) and a Sport 2000. We needed something bigger and newer. We looked at GMC, Ford, Toyota and Nissan until we found a small add on the internet for an Ascender. We went to our local dealer and were amazed at the size and amount of equipment being offered for the price. Well 48 hours (weekend) later we drove off in ours. Great buy! Well worth your investment, take a look.
