Vehicle Overview
The name is new, but the vehicle isn’t: This SUV was formerly known as the Amigo. Isuzu says it changed names to advertise rather than hide that the two-door Rodeo Sport is a kid brother of the larger four-door Rodeo.

The Rodeo Sport is built on a shorter version of the truck chassis used for the Rodeo, and it shares the same engines, four-wheel-drive system and front styling.

Two body styles are available, both with two side doors and an overall length of 168 inches, about 9 inches shorter than the four-door Rodeo. The convertible has a hardtop over the front seats with a manual, removable sunroof and a folding soft-top over the rear seats. The hardtop wagon adds a second sunroof over the rear seats in lieu of the folding top.

Isuzu says the Rodeo Sport seats five, though that might be optimistic given the modest space for the three-place rear seat. The front passenger seat has a walk-in feature that slides the seat forward when the backrest is released.

Under the Hood
A 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine with 130 horsepower is standard, and a 3.2-liter V-6 with 205 hp is optional. Both engines are now available with manual shift or a four-speed automatic. Four-wheel drive is available with either engine, and it is a part-time system that should be used only on slippery surfaces.
