The refined and rounded appearance of the Isuzu Trooper reflected its standing in the 3-model Isuzu sport/utility fleet. As the flagship model since 1981, the Trooper's mission was to project an image of contemporary luxury and sophisticated style. The Trooper appealed to buyers seeking a blend of high performance, rugged durability and luxury. Key competitors included the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Oldsmobile Bravada and Ford Explorer.
The 1991 Isuzu Trooper had different trim levels compared to the '90s generation Trooper -- LS, S, SE and XS -- all available only with 4-wheel drive.
Redesigned for 1992, the Trooper was available in two body styles and four trim levels. Four-door models featured a base-level S and upscale LS trim. The 2-door models came in a single trim level only, the RS.
Two versions of the same V6 engine were available. The base engine was a 175-hp sohc 3.2-liter V6. The optional engine was a 190-hp dohc 3.2-liter V6. The standard transmission was a 5-speed manual. A 4-speed automatic was available as an option.
The Trooper benefited from a number of enhancements during the past couple of years, so for 1995 Isuzu was content to sit pat. The 1995 Trooper was a carryover model, and was the last to go on sale for this model year in early 1995.
For this model year, the special-edition top-of-the-line LTD model was available in limited quantities as a midyear introduction. It featured a distinctive 2-tone paint scheme, special 16-in. aluminum wheels, a sunroof, CD changer, ABS, limited-slip differential and heated leather seats. The 4wd system featured automatic locking hubs and a 2-speed transfer case for shift-on-the-fly 4wd operation.
The 1996 Isuzu Trooper went on sale in November 1995 as the first 1996 model from Isuzu.
The Trooper remained on sale until 2002.
