The Isuzu Panther is a multi-purpose vehicle and pickup truck manufactured in Indonesia for the Asian market by Isuzu Motors. 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, where it is known as the Hi-Lander Crosswind and Vietnam.

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

In the Philippines, the Crosswind replaced the Hi-Lander in 2001, and was given a major redesign in early 2005 from the "Hi-Lander Crosswind" to just "Crosswind" as well as "Sportivo". Minor facelifts were given in 2007 and 2009 to the same format. It is now in its second generation and still gaining popularity. It has a new style which makes it simple yet also sporty to look at. It is still powered by the 4JA-1 Diesel Engine, but was even better with the option of a 81 hp normally aspirated version or an 85 hp low-pressure turbocharged version. This third generation model is also equipped with Isuzu‘s Flex Ride Suspension System which promotes a comfortable ride while maintaining composure, durability, and high ground clearance.
