Yep... No doubt about it...

If they can build them as stout as they look, it would be mighty nice to have one, indeed!

Do these things remind anyone else of the Land Rover Defenders or is it just me?

I don't see why someone couldn't re-badge one of these, and pass it off as a Rover. --- Although, just for the fun of it, personally, I think I'd slap an Isuzu emblem on mine! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/pfft.gif" alt="" />

In all seriousness, this does sort of open the door for me to ask the question:
Why in the *Bleep-bleep-bleep* doesn’t Isuzu try their hand at building something like this?

It seems to be a big tease although more dealerships seem to be coming on board.

The CrossLander was supposed to be introduced mid to late last year but for some reason, keeps being pushed back and I see the turbodiesel option is pushed back another year.

Hmmmmmm.......... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

There's been several other threads on this truck along with some other links.

Let's hope they get enough dealer/service network to make it practical to own. With a 4.0 and able to tow over 5,700#, it's on my list to watch. It just surprises me that it has drum rear brakes.

Not just stout, but quality.
I'm not asking for Lexus quality, but if it has Yugo quality, they'd have to do like Inkjet printers:
Give the crosslander away for $2000 and make the other $14,000 up on replacment parts.

1. "If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
2. "But that leaves a thin but real chance that you just lucked into a great deal."

Slimteufel, when i called in about these in Jan/Feb, a dealership in Savannah is one of like two or three in Georgia that were selling them... you're lucky to be so close!

I dunno, folks. I'm a bit of a skeptic. Give up my P-port for something that looks just like a 'Rover? I dunno. That would be like, well, sacrelige! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

Just got off the phone with my closest (proposed) dealer. MID-OCTOBER is the scheduled arrival date in Jacksonville/Green Cove Springs. Salesman offered to send me a brochure, but said he hasn't had much interest in the arrival. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

With all the chrome H2's around here, there should be brisk business once they hit the lot - if the dealer installs the requisite bling-bling. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/barf.gif" alt="" />

Love child, eh? The joys of a 2-car garage. Now, what'd happen if I put an H1 hummer in the rack with the 'short bus'.

oh, the H2!

Hehe. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/butwiggle.gif" alt="" />
