Used 2004 Isuzu Rodeo Review

Edmunds expert review

An impressive V6 engine makes its debut for 2004. Too bad it has to be in the under-achieving Rodeo.

What's new for 2004

Isuzu has made a few changes this year to make the Rodeo more appealing to SUV shoppers. First off, there's a new range-topping 3.5-liter V6 that makes 250 horsepower. Last year's 3.2-liter V6 has a new home in the base model; the four-cylinder engine has been dropped. Other alterations this year include a new Sound Package, a new Color Package and a new tire-pressure monitoring system.
