Welcome back to another edition of Cars You’ve Never Heard About and Wonder Why You Are Hearing About Them Now. Today’s example is the finest of GM’s badge engineering; two parts legacy Japanese brand, one part 4.2 liter DOHC Inline-6 (why would they call it a Vortec?…it’s inline…strange times) and a spritz of cheap GM interior plastic…scratch that…it’s a full send heaping slather of GM plastic and faux woodgrain. I can’t imagine a single potential buyer actually WANTED that fake wood crap on the inside of a mid-sized SUV in 2005, but then I don’t known a single person who purchased one of the two Ascenders per month sold on-average from each of the nationwide Isuzu dealers. Strange times indeed. Find this 2005 Isuzu Ascender offered for $5999 from a small dealer in Sacramento, CA via cars.com.
