The Isuzu Ascender wis a mid-size/full-size SUV built bi Isuzu. Introducit for the 2003 model year, the 7-passenger Ascender wis a re-badgit GMC Envoy. It replaced the Japanese built mid-size Isuzu Trooper. A shorter 5-passenger model wis made available for the 2005 model year as a replacement for the Rodeo and the Axiom. A Displacement on Demand V8 was introduced in 2005. Isuzu ance affered a wide line o trucks, caurs, an SUVs but the Ascender wis Isuzu's last an ae passenger vehicle till the introduction o the also slow-sellin Isuzu i-Series pickup trucks, which wur also built bi GM in North Americae. The Ascender wis niver sold in Canadae as Isuzu haed announced, at the time, its wi'drawal frae there.

The Ascender is the ae ane o the sax mid-size SUVs that wis no actually a GM brandit product (Isuzu wis partially awned bi GM till ware 2006). The 7-passenger Ascender wis dropped efter the 2006 model year. Reviews warned o a thin dealer network for warranty repairs, an the Kelley Blue Book projectit a relatively law resale value similar tae the Trailblazer. Houever, Isuzu offers a seiven-year/75,000-mile pouertrain warranty, an substantial factory incentives.

5-passenger Ascender

The Ascender endit production on Juin 6, 2008 as part o Isuzu's wi'drawal frae the Unitit States market.[1] The Ascender (alang wi the relatit GMC Envoy) wur baith replaced bi the 2010 GMC Terrain, based on the GM Theta platform.
