The Isuzu Panther is a multi-purpose vehicle manufactured in Indonesia for the Asian market by Isuzu. The model is suited to carrying large loads of passengers or cargo. It was developed to meet local conditions in terms of climate, roads and family structure as a durable vehicle. The Panther is also popular in the Philippines (known as the Crosswind, which bested the diesel version of the Toyota Revo) and Vietnam.

The Panther is also manufactured and marketed in India under the name Chevrolet Tavera.

In the Philippines, the Crosswind is now in its third generation and is extremely popular. It is given a new style which gives it a sporty stance. It is still powered by the 4JA-1 Diesel Engine, with the options of an 81hp normally aspirated or an 85hp low charge turbo version . This third generation model is equipped with Isuzu‘s Flex Ride Suspension System which promotes a comfortable ride while maintaining composure, durability, and high ground clearance.
