About the Holden Jackaroo

The Isuzu Trooper is a mid-size SUV that had been produced by the Japanese automaker Isuzu between 1981 and 2005. It had been exported worldwide as the Isuzu Bighorn, Isuzu Trooper, Isuzu Trooper II , Caribe 442, Acura SLX, Chevrolet Trooper, Subaru Bighorn, SsangYong Korando Family, Honda Horizon, Opel/Vauxhall Monterey, Holden Jackaroo, and Holden Monterey.There were three years of Trooper, 1981–1991, 1992–1997 and 1998–2005, after which Isuzu ceased exporting the model. It began production as a rather basic and somewhat underpowered on- and off-road vehicle, provided just with four-cylinder motor, five-speed handbook transmission, and part-time four-wheel drive. The first generation evolved to add both amenities and luxuries, including optional air-conditioning, power windows, and a more powerful V6 engine. The second generation was more refined yet, available in two-wheel drive as well as four.

In 1991 for the 1992 model year, Isuzu completely redesigned the Trooper to keep pace with changes in the SUV marketplace, making it bigger, more powerful, and more luxurious. These 5,500 lb (2,500 kg). vehicles used a 3.2 L single overhead cam 177 PS (130 kW; 175 hp) (SOHC) petrol engine, with an available 3.2 L dual overhead cam (DOHC) version rated at 193 PS (142 kW; 190 hp). A SOHC 3.2 L engine producing 193 PS (142 kW; 190 hp) had been introduced in 1996, replacing the prior engines. Many models still used a part-time four-wheel-drive system, which required stopping the vehicle to engage and disengage the front axle. Starting with the 1996 SE Limited Troopers came with shift on the fly engagement.From 1992, the UBS Series ("Holden Jackaroo", as it is known in Australia) was available with a pushrod overhead valve (OHV) 3.1 L in-line 4-cylinder intercooled turbodiesel (designated 4JG2) producing 114 PS (84 kW; 112 hp) at 3,600 rpm, and 260 N·m (192 lb·ft) at 2000 rpm. It was offered as an alternative to the 3.2-litre petrol, as a more rugged and fuel-efficient choice for towing and heavy-duty operation. The diesel-powered Jackaroo was available with a five-speed manual transmission and manual front hubs only coupled to a part-time 4wd system with open front and limited slip rear differentials. The 2.283:1 low range can be selected on the move, offering the front hubs are engaged, at up to 15 km/h 1st gear, 25 km/h 2nd gear and 40 km/h 3rd to 5th gears. (The 3.2-litre V6 petrol engine version was also available with an optional four-speed auto and auto locking front hubs.) The exact same diesel engine was also available in the U.K. and other markets with a belt-driven overhead camshaft, which developed slightly more power. After 1998, as well as the introduction of the 4JX1 3.0-litre diesel engine, a four-speed automatic transmission was made available in addition to the five-speed manual transmission.

During this Honda, Isuzu and period had a working arrangement that allowed Honda to sell a rebadged Trooper. In Japan it had been known as the Honda Horizon from 1994 to 1999, and as the Acura SLX in the United States from 1996 to 1999.Beginning in 1998, Troopers in the US had been prepared with a DOHC 3.5 L engine producing 215 hp (160 kW; 218 PS). European and Asian buyers could opt for the diesel engine option of the 4JG2 3.1 L (later superseded by the more problematic 4JX1 3.0 L of 159 PS or 117 kW). A Borg-Warner torque-on-demand all-wheel-drive system was introduced, along with freshened styling. The grille was redesigned again for the 2000 model year.

Transmission choices included a five-speed manual transmission, the Aisin AR5 and the electronically managed 4L30E four-speed automatic. The 4l30E was fitted with both a "power" shift feature allowing the gearbox to take much better advantage of the engine's power by adjusting the shifting a "winter and nature" mode permitting third gear begins for added stability in slippery conditions. The 2000 to 2002 Trooper included a feature called "Grade Logic" which allowed the transmission to immediately downshift on steep grades in purchase to slow the car down.The suspension consisted of a completely independent torsion bar front suspension, and a multilink coil sprung rear suspension integrated with a solid rear axle.The Trooper LS and S designs offered 117.8 cu ft (3,340 L) cargo space, while Limited models had 112.3 cu ft (3,180 L).While US-spec Troopers came only in the 5-seat models, in Europe as well as the UNITED KINGDOM 7-seater version was also offered. Optional on all models had been a rear limited slip differential. In the US the 3-door RS model was sold only from 1993 to 1995.In 2002, the Trooper was discontinued in the United States in favor of the smaller Axiom and the larger GM-produced Isuzu Ascender, a re-badged GMC Envoy.A Trooper with the 16-valve 159 PS (117 kW; 157 hp) 3.0-liter 4JX1-TC engine had been sold in the Philippines from 2002 until model year 2005. Known as the Skyroof Edition, it came in a rear-wheel-drive configuration with anti-lock brakes, a limited slip billet-type, differential radiator grille, and large power moonroof. Various other standard options included leather seats, wood trim, and a VCD entertainment system. It had been later succeeded by the Isuzu Alterra.
