2001 Rodeo Overview

Isuzu Rodeo admirably bridges the double demands on an SUV: handsome looks, a confident feel, and nimble highway manners on the one hand, and respectable off-road capability on the other.If that's a split personality, well, it's one personality disorder that we can live with.

For 2001, Isuzu celebrates 10 years of Rodeos with a special Anniversary Edition, featuring a full complement of luxury equipment and a special white-and-beige color scheme.

The Rodeo was redesigned in 1998, and freshened for 2000, so additional changes for 2001 are minimal.Tire sizes have been juggled somewhat, so 225/70R16's are found now only on four-cylinder Rodeos; all V6 models now wear 245/70R16s.Last year brought a benchmark powertrain warranty and an interesting computer-controlled suspension.Seats were improved, too, and are further refined for 2001.You may have known about this spunky little two-door, open-air sport-utility as the Isuzu Amigo.But for 2001 it has been re-named the Rodeo Sport.The name change makes sense for a couple of reasons: First, Rodeo and Amigo already shared engines and other mechanical components.Second, Isuzu plans to launch an additional SUV model called the Axiom for 2002, and apparently felt the need to cut back on the number of nameplates in showroom.Axiom is expected to be a small, car-like wagon, more in the RAV4 or CR-V mold; the Rodeo name will continue to stand for more off-road-capable, truck-based SUV's.

Of the two Rodeo models, the ex-Amigo, now Rodeo Sport, should enjoy a slight performance advantage, on and off the road, thanks to its shorter wheelbase and lighter weight.It is, after all, simply the Amigo by another name, with the same short, stout body and semi-convertible soft top; the same rugged four-wheel drive and optional V6 power.And yes, a glass-window hard top is still available for travelers who want more weather protection than the soft-top affords.
