The 2008 Isuzu i-290 is a versatile 2WD Extended Cab pick-up truck with a 6-foot cargo bed. This year, it gets minor revisions from the automaker that include simplifying the available options packages. Under the hood, the i-290 comes equipped with a 185 horsepower 2.9-liter gas-powered L4 mated to your choice of a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. It offers seating capacity for up to three passengers and a decent list of standard equipment, including air conditioning, cruise control, AM/FM stereo, driver and passenger-side airbags and ABS.Read more Read less

The Isuzu brand continues to be a leader in value. Two engine choices, front- and rear-wheel drive, and both extended and crew cab body styles mean Isuzu's i-Series has broad appeal. It is distinctively styled and sports a heavy-duty suspension that can handle real-world pickup applications. The drivetrain warranty bests most other competitors, as well, at seven years or 75,000 miles.
