Vehicross is a compact 2-door Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) developed from the family of Isuzu with its first model being introduced way back in 1997.
This SUV was produced between 1997 and 2001; it shared many of its components with Trooper including its standard power-train option.
After couple of years, 1999 Vehicross underwent a few changes.
It was a small compact 2-door sporty crossover vehicle, which came out with very aggressive body styling including a titanium teeth in the front grille, short overhangs, and black plastic cladding all over the lower-half of the vehicle body – and it definitely ensured a second-look… but, at the same time, some of the folks didn’t really appreciate its design!
Under the Skin
The classy Vehicross was offered with 2-choices of engines. A standard 3.2-liter V-6 engine equipped in this compact SUV had the capability to produce an output power of around 215bhp at 5400 RPM and 230 pound-feet off torque at 3000 RPM.
It was equipped with a TOD (Torque on Demand) all-wheel system, which was developed by Borg Warner.
It was first revealed as a concept model at the Tokyo International Auto Show in 1993, but it was made available to general public in Japan in 1997, which was introduced with some revised features.
During its 2001 release, it was introduced with a base MSRP of $30,350.
