Look at this! This is the (possibly) one and only Isuzu Rodeo in town. The Isuzu Rodeo was manufactured from 1988 to 2004. This particular car is a 2002. Under the hood is a 3.2 DOHC V6 engine, making 205 hp and 214 lb-ft of torque, making it capable of towing 4,500 pounds. The power is then delivered through a 4-speed automatic transmission. An advanced 4WD system "allows shifts from 2WD into 4WD High at up to 100 km/h via a dash-mounted button" (Driving.ca). It equalizes torque distribution between the front & rear axles, which gives 4-wheel traction in a wink of an eye. 4WD Low is activated by a floor-mounted lever. It rides on 5-link suspension, which makes the Rodeo a bit bouncy through dips on road surfaces. Dual front airbags and ABS are all standard features on the car. Overall, the Rodeo is a well-performing vehicle in features, power, and towing capability.
Styling-wise, this car won't turn any heads soon. It looks like a Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV-4 from the same period, meaning that it perfectly blends into traffic, which is what I love. Still, it's pretty cool to see one roaming around town.
In the end, the Isuzu Rodeo is the best way to describe boredom, but it's also very utilitarian. Heck, even Honda sold these in their dealerships (they are Honda Passports for your information)! Although it's over 16 years old, there is no surprise about its rarity, as many of these ended up in te scrapyard because of the frame issues these cars had. They are really cheap, as they are priced between $1,458 and $5,878.
