The '08 Isuzu I-290 truck is one of the most confusing vehicles I've ever been aware of. From the rear, the truck looks wonderful and even a little edgy, giving me the idea that this truck could be a real competitor in the market, but after that, it all goes down the drain. The bed of the truck has wonderful lines and styling from the sides to the tail gate, the front end and cab, however, are an entirely different story. The cab is the most plain looking thing I've ever seen on a truck, which isn't always a bad thing, but the front end looks like it was a mash up of 10 different truck front ends from the past. It's unique all right, but it's ugly. The pain doesn't stop on the outside either. The interior of a truck isn't supposed to be glamorous, so when I opened up the doors and saw that the insides were pretty good looking and sleek, I thought maybe I should change my mind about the truck. After closer inspection of the inside of the cab, I knew I was wrong about my initial thought. Yeah it definitely looks more like a sedan on the inside, but it's just as, if not, cheaper than one. The huge amount of inexpensive plastic parts that I felt and looked at made me ask why would a manufacturer put easily breakable parts in a supposed workhorse vehicle? I soon came to another conclusion.
Although the 2008 Isuzu I-290 is a truck, presumed to be used for rugged terrains and activities, the specifications just don't add up. It's only available in rear wheel drive, it gets 185 horsepower to the wheels on a good day, and it only sports a 4 cylinder engine. All the while, the truck only gets 18/24 mpg. If you can't use this vehicle in rough conditions because of it's low specs and cheap parts and you can't use it as your daily get around truck, what can you use it for?|
