The 2007 Isuzu i-370 comes in a choice of either the crew-cab or extended-cab body style, and includes the significantly more powerful 242-horsepower (hp), five-cylinder engine. The four-wheel-drive (4WD) or two-wheel-drive (2WD) options are available on the extended cab, but the crew cab comes solely in 4WD. It appeals to budget-conscious buyers due to its affordability, not necessarily because of its build-quality or upscale appointments. There are also numerous safety features included since the introduction of the pickup. Overall, with the extensive list of standard features, low price point, and the extended drivetrain warranty, the i-370 has just the right combination for most buyers. \
Body styles: truck, crew cab, extended cab
Engines: 3.7-liter five-cylinder

The 2007 Isuzu i-370 now will feature a bigger 3.7-liter five-cylinder to replace the 3.5-liter engine of the previous model year. The larger engine produces 242 hp, which is a welcome improvement for i-370 buyers.
With the choice of an extended-cab or crew-cab body style, the 2007 Isuzu i-370 has several ways to spruce up the exterior, even with the single trim level. The LS has fog lamps, locking rear differential, a sliding rear window, a chrome grille, chrome-finish bumpers, a rear defogger, and 15-inch painted alloy wheels. Additional packages are available to pick various optional exterior enhancements, as well as numerous body paint colors.
The 2007 Isuzu i-370 has two trim levels to beautify the pickup interior. The quaint cabin is modest, especially the controls and interior materials. Passengers sit comfortably in either bucket seats or bench-style seating. Some standard interior features include air-conditioning, a split-bench seat, cruise control, and a six-speaker sound system on the S models. Upping to the LS model will add power accessories and bucket seats. Package options include the Preferred Equipment Package, which has cloth seat trim, carpeted floors, rear privacy glass, storage compartments, rear jump seats, and an MP3/CD player.
Performance & Handling
The 2007 Isuzu i-370 is powered with the 3.7-liter five-cylinder that produces 242 hp with 242 lb-ft of torque and is matched with an automatic four-speed transmission. The i-370 has four-wheel drive with an on-demand system that utilizes an electronic front differential that engages wheels right away whenever slippery or adverse conditions are encountered. Towing is adequate, the ability to tow only around 4,000 pounds. Driving and handling are not an issue with the pickup, offering a reasonably refined and well-cushioned ride. The engines deliver sufficient power for daily driving and getting around town, but for the heavier towing and hauling, it may not be the best. Shifting is timely and firm, which could be above average in the segment. The i-370’s steering and handling capabilities are rated above the competition.
The 2007 Isuzu i-Series pickups have many standard safety features, including anti-lock four-wheel braking, traction control, tire-pressure monitoring, roof-mounted airbags, and additional head protection in the event of a side-impact collision. During government frontal-impact crash testing, the i-370 was awarded the highest rating of five stars in front passenger and driver protection. While performing the side-impact tests, it received a four-star rating. The IIHS awarded the i-Series with its best rating of ""good"" for frontal-offset crash testing.
