“How underrated is the Isuzu Trooper?” is a question I wake up in the middle of the night asking myself, usually in a thick sweat. These little boxy SUVs are so handsome, their interiors are basically perfect, they’ve got their spare tire in the right location, they offer amazing visibility and off-road capability, and they’re also dirt cheap. What’s not to love?

In case you’re curious, this Dutch ad reads (translated via Google Translate):

Even more power due to new engines. Dynamic, robust and reliable. A powerhouse, now even stronger in the new power versions.

There’s one for sale on Craigslist for only $1,499. Someone who is not me needs to buy it
