In October, we reported that the waiting list for the Isuzu MU-X was already a month long--and that was less than four weeks after its Philippine-market launch. Well, we're with Isuzu Philippines Corporation executives right now in Palawan for an MU-X ride-and-drive event, and we've just been told the waiting list for the midsize SUV is now even longer.
According to our source, there are approximately 2,000 customers waiting for the MU-X, with 70% of the orders attributed to the LS-A 4x2 variant. Our source added that Isuzu has had to increase its shipment of the MU-X, from around 500 units a month to 700 units just to keep up with the demand. So if you do the math, the waiting list has grown from a month to three months.
If you've been planning on buying the MU-X but still haven't done so, well...you've been warned.
