In 2002, Isuzu offered the popular Axiom sedan-SUV crossover, made available with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. It lauded popular features for buyers that included Torque On Demand (TOD) 4WD, and Integrated Monitor System (IMS) for climate control and direct integration with the Atomic Clock in Denver. The model remained unchanged for the year 2003. In 2004, the company added a direct injection technology to their V6 engine and removed the tape deck as well as decreased the audio system from eight speakers to six. The 2004 Isuzu Axiom model also flaunted a new chromed front grille and had the option to upgrade the wheels to alloy.
