2003 Isuzu Ascender Preview
Does this SUV look familiar? It should. The Ascender, taking over for the aging Trooper, is basically a badge-engineered Chevy Trailblazer. Or is it derived from the GMC Envoy? Or maybe I'm mistaken. Could it be the Oldsmobile Bravada? No, that model is getting phased out along with the Oldsmobile nameplate and being restyled as the Buick Rainier for the 2004 model year. What am I saying? Word has it Cadillac is considering building a midsize SUV off of the platform as well, Hummer too. Can you spot a pattern here?
