Isuzu introduced the Trooper, a mid-size SUV, in 1981. The first generation of the Trooper was commercially successful despite its "plain and very utilitarian" appearance, according to Edmunds.com. It came with an 2.2-litre, four-cylinder engine. The first generation lasted through 1991 and was followed by the second generation model in 1992. In 1998, Isuzu added a more powerful 3.5-litre, 215-horsepower engine to the Trooper and slightly modified its physical appearance. Isuzu discontinued the Trooper after 2002. In 2003, the company replaced the Trooper with the smaller Axiom and the larger Ascender in the United States.
