I dont like Japo cars, but I must say its kind of unfortunate since Isuzu was building good and popular cars in the past.
How about you comment on HONDA PASSPORT, Hondata!
Honda even rebadged ISUZUs they were so bad!!

GM built both the pickup and the Ascender.

Isuzu gave GM the DuraMax however.

Please get help. I want you to research the Isuzu GM relationship for a while. GM is the reason they were here in the first place. GM sold the interest, hence no more Isuzu.

GM got the DuraMax from them....now GM learned how to design and build their own diesels.
