Authenticity, Durability, Value
With more cargo space than many other SUVs in its class, the 2004 Isuzu Rodeo has a swing-out door with separate hatch glass, as well as a handy storage pocket for holding additional items. Rodeo's 60/40 split rear seats carry oversize baggage and both rear seat sections have 3-position recline.
The 2004 Isuzu Rodeo comes standard with modern, driver-oriented gauges and vents that close flush. And as an option, there's the powerful 140-watt, 6-disc in-dash CD changer. On the 4-wheel-drive model there's a switch that easily transfers you from 2- to 4-wheel drive, High or Low, making off-road maneuvering even easier.
With its powerful new 3.5-liter, 250-hp Direct Injection V6,1 spacious interior and extreme amounts of cargo space2, the Isuzu Rodeo is one of the first SUVs to combine offroad capability, practical innovation and proven durability. And it just keeps getting better, as this remarkable new engine not only offers greater power, but improved fuel economy and reduced emissions as well. Or choose the Rodeo's impressive standard 205-hp V6. With either engine under the hood, the Rodeo is one SUV that's at home on almost any road, paved or otherwise.
And underneath the toughest of exteriors lies a more sensitive side. Rodeo offers gorgeous moquette cloth upholstery in Beige or Gray. That, combined with optional leather seating, power reclining bucket seats and standard rear-seat heater ducts, makes for comfort with a capital "C."
