Great Handling Car

by Hard to please from on Mon Oct 25 2010

This is a great handling car. The best I've driven for handling and comfort. Smooth riding. Comfortable interior. Would like to get better gas mileage, but not bad for it's size.

Isuzu has had a long collaboration with General Motors Corp., so when it came time to replace the Japanese-built Trooper, it tapped GM for help and expertise. The $32,312 Ascender we tested rolled off an assembly line in Moraine, Ohio, and differs little from the Envoy and TrailBlazer, except for a few details such as the grille and tail lamps.
