Default Isuzu Trooper 4x4 Comes Home

I was looking for a trooper from some time and i finally managed
to lay my hands on this beast.
ISUZU TROOPER finally comes home.

Technical Specs

Engine-2.8L
Horsepower-120
Torque-4600
Displacement-2827
Bore X Stroke-3.50 X 2.99
Compression Ratio-8.9:1

Interiors.

Max. Seating-5
Front Legroom-39.9 inches
Back Legroom-36.1 inches

Wheelbase-104.3 inches
Length-176.0 inches
Width 65.0 in
Height 4-Door: 71.7 in
Transmission-5-speed manual

Fuel Capacity-81 Liters (Diesel)

Boot Space-Lots of space in the back to haul whatever
you want.

This 4 wheel drive vehicle can go just about anywhere
having a high clearance, and just an all around durable frame.

Driving experience.

I have already covered 800 Kms in last 8 days of city driving.Have driven to the airport only once.

Performance-The first thing you notice is the immense power this vehicle generates.You can feel that power once you shift from first to second., its roars.
Note-The engine has already propelled this vehicle close to 1.3 lakhs kms.

Ride Quality-I would rate this 9/10 for a 20 year old vehicle.

Steering-This vehicle is so easy to maneuver considering the kerb weight which is close to 3000 kgs .Courtesy,the power steering.

Braking-10/10. It behaves like an obedient little dog when it comes to braking.You could see the bonnet almost touching the road when you break suddenly and the vehicle does not skid.

Controls-The controls are very simple.

Interiors- Spacious, very spacious.Lots of headroom. Doesn't matter how tall you are, you will have plenty of room up top.

Hey Waseem,

Thats a wonderful acquisition.

As discussed, it looks really awesome and clean from all aspects. At that price point its a steal. Not clear if the front steel railing is an add-on. If yes, get rid of it to get the complete look.

Do share a detailed buying, driving and ownership report with lots of exterior and interior pictures.

Look forward to driving it our next meet. Congrats again !

Congratulations on your buy! It looks in excellent shape.
BTW, did you get your compression ratio numbers wrong? 8.9:1 is way too low for a diesel.

NissanPatrol, Isuzu Trooper and Land Rover Defender are vehicles that were primarily built for abuse in Africa & ME. These vehicles are built to last for half a million Kms easily (including engine) with decent maintenance. So I would call the the engine still in its early 20's.
I would reckon this is the late 80's 1st generation model.

Waseem Bhai, I don't think so. Just checked online. I'm sure the vehicle will look much better without the bullbar.

Its 1990 model & this engine has a life of 3L+ KMS.

One of my friend in Canada has covered 2L miles and the vehicle still looks good.

You need to add Land Cruiser to the list (FJ 60 & 62)

I always adore these 'BOX' shaped beasts as compared to the recent curvy models, this by no way means that i do not like curves.
