According to ‘Off Road’ magazine American Isuzu Motors will name its new flagship SUV ‘Ascender’.


The high-end luxury SUV, which goes on sale in the United States this autumn, will be Isuzu’s new top-of-the-line SUV, replacing the Trooper.


The Ascender will share a chassis with the Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT (the extended-length ‘Blazer) and will be built – starting in September – at GM’s Moraine, Ohio, assembly plant.
