Isuzu Adds New Gas Trucks

Isuzu Adds NEW Gas Trucks, Driver Assistance Tech to Lineup

Isuzu Adds New Gas Trucks to the Nicholas Truck Sales & Service inventory with Class 5 gasoline trucks that has joined Isuzu’s Class 3 and Class 4 gasoline trucks, which have been a staple of the brand for years. Mobileye driver-assistance features will also become an option on all Isuzu N-Series and F-Series trucks. Two new Class 5 gasoline-powered trucks will join Isuzu’s commercial vehicle lineup, the OEM announced, while unveiling its production plans for 2019 and 2020 at the Work Truck Show on Thursday, March 7. Isuzu also plans to begin adding advanced driver-assistance tech to it N-Series and F-Series trucks later this year.

The newer, bigger GVWR trucks, will join Isuzu’s Class 3 and Class 4 gasoline trucks, which have been a staple of the brand for years.

“We are celebrating the 35th anniversary of Isuzu trucks in the North American market this year, and what better way to mark the occasion than to expand our lineup,” said Shaun C. Skinner, president of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America and Isuzu Commercial Truck of Canada. “We’re thrilled to bring the convenience and low cost of ownership of our N-Series gasoline truck to Class 5 and a whole new group of customers.”

Isuzu Adds New Gas Trucks and two new Class 5 models are planned: the NQR Gas (with a target GVWR of 17,950 lbs.) and the NRR Gas (with a target GVWR of 19,500 lbs.). Both will be powered by a General Motors 6.0-liter Vortec V8 supplied by PSI and will be mated to an Allison 1000 RDS transmission with PTO gear.

“We’ve had a gas truck since 1986 in the U.S. with our low-cab-forward,” Brian Tabel, Isuzu’s executive director of marketing, told Fleet Owner on Thursday. “Probably since 2010, there’s been such an increase in demand on having a gasoline engine in higher GVW.”

The bigger gasoline truck is aimed at customers who want more ease in maintenance, Tabel said. “So if they can use a gas truck, it is a benefit. And right now, gas is still cheap. If a year from now, two years from now, gas is $4 or $5 per gallon, that may swing people. Because in that case, diesel probably would be your other option.”

But with gasoline expected to stay at these lower levels over the next couple years, Isuzu expects its new gas-powered trucks to be popular with its customers.

Production of these trucks is expected to begin in mid-2020.

We Have The Isuzu Box Truck You Need

Types of Commercial Trucks;

  • Dump Truck – This is fairly common. You’ll see dump trucks on commercial construction sites and anywhere else large loads of dirt, rock, and soil need to be moved.
  • Box Truck – also known as a cube truck, cube van, rolling toaster or box van, is a chassis cab truck with an enclosed cuboid-shaped cargo area. On most box trucks, the cabin is separate to the cargo area, however some box trucks have a door between the cabin and the cargo area.
  • Cement Mixer Truck – You see these trucks with a huge cylindrical shape on the back. When it’s turning, it’s mixing the cement.
  • Flatbed Truck – Flatbed trucks are often used for logging or transporting lumber. They can carry heavy loads, but not fluids.
  • Tanker Truck – These trucks sport a long tube on the back in place of a trailer and are designed to carry liquids or fluids. The most common type of tanker is an oil truck. They are often used by petroleum companies.
  • Refrigerator Truck – Grocery store chains and food manufacturers often use refrigerator trucks to transport frozen goods and foods that need to be chilled while in transit.
  • Garbage Truck – Every municipality needs someone to pick up trash and take it to the dump. The garbage truck is designed to do the trick.
  • Heavy Hauler Truck – These super-heavy beasts are designed to transport heavy loads too large for roads unless an escort is involved. Drivers often require special permits to operate these big bad boys.

Classes of Commercial Trucks

  • Class 2 Truck – these trucks are often referred to as full-sized trucks and are commonly seen on construction sites or used when hauling small trailers.
  • Class 3 Truck – trucks are typically classified as heavy-duty work trucks, capable of hauling livestock trailers, small construction equipment, and heavy loads of tools and building materials.
  • Class 4 Truck – commercial trucks are designed to give you more customization options with more engine power and hauling abilities. Many of these trucks are available in chassis form, allowing you to build the right bed for your needs on the back of the truck.
  • Class 5 Truck – trucks are most commonly used as heavy-duty delivery vans.

Driving Overloaded Vehicles

Understanding The Consequences of Driving Overloaded Vehicles

Fleet professionals are tasked with providing safe, reliable and compliant vehicles for their organization. In many cases, fleet professionals that design these work trucks only have indirect control and/or input on how these vehicles are used after being placed in service. One of the biggest concerns is understanding the consequences of operating overloaded vehicles. This includes drivability issues, reliability and maintenance concerns, and the regulatory impacts and liability risks associated with operating overloaded vehicles. With some forethought in the vehicle design driving overloaded vehicles phase and broad-based education for all stakeholders, these issues can be minimized, if not completely eliminated.

What is an overloaded vehicle
Industry professionals generally know gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) represents maximum vehicle weight, including chassis, body, auxiliary equipment and payload. Several other factors beyond GVWR can contribute to a truck being characterized as overloaded, including gross combined weight rating (GCWR) and gross axle weight rating (GAWR). GCWR is the maximum allowable weight for a truck and trailer combination. This covers the weight of the truck, any cargo and the trailer. In short, if the load rolls with the truck, the weight is included in GCWR. GAWR covers each axle on a truck and trailer. It is limited to the weakest component in the axle system, including suspension, tires and brakes.

Drivability — Controlling a vehicle
Improperly loaded vehicles or those that exceed the weight rating will have a dramatic effect on performance. Steering, maneuverability, braking and acceleration are all affected. Most important, stopping distances are dramatically impacted. Simply stated, an overloaded truck requires more distance to stop. Operators can misjudge necessary stopping distance when a vehicle is improperly loaded.

Another example is maneuverability and steering (i.e., when a vehicle exceeds weight on the rear axle which creates an imbalanced load). These factors can affect the entire characteristic of the truck. Steering and handling are impacted, and in extreme cases, the truck loses front axle traction.

Excess speed and maneuverability are significant issues (i.e., a large vehicle traveling down an incline can gain additional speed paired with decreased maneuverability and stopping distances). All these scenarios can cause immediate and unsafe conditions for the vehicle, operator and general public. Isaac Newton’s laws of physics state items in motion stay in motion, and objects at rest will stay at rest until compelled to change action by an external force. Manufacturers recognize these effects in vehicle design and the influence external forces have on important components like brakes, powerplants and powertrains. All these critical components are set to operate within a specific range of parameters. Ultimately, these design characteristics recognize the physics within the operating environment.

Maintenance — Keeping trucks on the road
Downtime can be a major expense for any organization. Idle equipment is not producing work. Components broken as a result of exceeding capacity can be completely preventable. Another significant educational opportunity is the cost of downtime. At times, vehicles are overloaded with the misconception of being more efficient. Operators believe streamlining to one trip can save time and money. However, a preventable breakdown affects drivers and customer commitments and can even require a larger fleet due to the need to retain maintenance spares — all of which are unnecessary expenses.

Overloaded and overweight trucks increase the cost of maintenance. Premature and preventable wear will drive up the cost of keeping trucks rolling down the road. Every operating system will be strained. Failure rates on many components will increase due to added stress. Tie rods, steering arms, tires, engines and other drivetrain components will wear prematurely as a result of operating above design tolerances.

Avoid risk and liability
Some drivers and supervisors in the fleet industry may think they are exempt from mandated weight restrictions/limits. There may be some organizations that have an exemption or may be permitted to run an overweight vehicle on the road. However, no one is exempt from having safe and compliant vehicles. This means vehicles cannot exceed designed weight capacity, under normal operating circumstances.

Consequences are costly. Though state laws vary, overweight tickets are often expensive and can lead to impounded vehicles. Many vocational trucks do not have a working familiarity with regulatory compliance as their vehicles are not routinely crossing mandated weight stations (often seen on highways).

Fleet professionals may not have as much control once the vehicle is on the road, but education can be an effective tool. Training operators and upper management can often prompt improved policies.

As vehicle weight increases, so does the number of crash instances. In 2016, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) data on large trucks and buses show crashes are directly proportional to vehicle weight.

Driving Overloaded Vehicles

Note: Large Truck and Bus Crash Facts have been updated. Access latest FMCSA data.

This data suggests that adding weight only increases the chance of an occurrence. Furthermore, as a fleet professional, a duty of care is held for the operator and organization. In the event of an incident, there can be civil and criminal consequences; respondeat superior — Latin for “let the master answer” — infers a responsibility that can go beyond the operator and include the fleet design team as well as others within an organization. If it is determined the vehicle was overweight, there can be severe civil and criminal penalties. Although it varies by state, in the event of a fatality, there are statutes that can hold an operator or owner criminally responsible, including charges as severe as manslaughter.

Controlling weight
There are several ways to prevent overload. First, it is important to understand how trucks are actually used. Many times, there is a disconnect between the design team and end users. Making field observations, talking with end users can be much more productive than assuming user awareness and willingness to abide by vehicle design parameters. Often, telling end users how to use equipment will fall on deaf ears. In the end, they have a job to get done and will find a way to use equipment, whether it was designed for the task or not.

Underutilized space
Unfortunately, on work trucks, you will rarely find underutilized space. Eventually, end users will add items to fill the void, resulting in unnecessary weight if the added materials/tools are rarely used. Too much space can add weight as operators may find items to fill room that’s not mission-critical. When adding weight, end users contribute to physical capacity, without taking vehicle effects into account.

Available tools
When designing a work truck, there are several tools you can use to provide a safe, reliable, compliant work truck. Accounting for reserve weight and not constantly running at maximum capacity help reduce maintenance and operating costs. In addition, considering reserve weight allows a cushion to add more, if needed. When planning for payload reserve ability, it’s typically appropriate to operate a vehicle between 80 percent and 85 percent capacity, leaving 15 percent to 20 percent reserve capacity.

When designing, consider engaging NTEA’s Vehicle Center of Gravity and Axle Weight Calculator — a web-based, interactive tool that provides vehicle specification and weight information. When upfitting or modifying a vehicle, these calculations produce information to share with customers, and assist in understanding how certain industry standards may apply — both in spec’ing prior to purchase and after upfitting is complete. Interactive instructions make this a user-friendly, additional tool for those in your company who are responsible for weight distribution and center of gravity calculations. The calculator is a free member benefit — not available for public purchase (details at ntea.com/weightcalculator). This data provides a helpful framework for reserve payload.

The Consequences of Driving Overloaded Vehicles

Striving for optimization
The goal is designing a work truck that encases all elements of performance, fuel economy, maintenance, resale and versatility. Sitting down with stakeholders to create and prioritize a selector list often exposes compromises. It’s critical to understand these concessions and how they affect drivers and equipment supervisors; meet expectations from internal and external customers; and influence the bottom line.

Completing a life cycle cost analysis can help you make concrete financial decisions. NTEA’s Vehicle Life Cycle Cost Tool performs calculations on scenario-based inputs, creating a pathway to determine true costs of ownership. It’s designed to be flexible and user-friendly to accommodate a variety of truck life cycle analysis needs and different fleet structures. This cloud-based resource enables fleets, engineers and sales representatives to load differing depreciation methodologies (such as straight-line, accelerated and pool depreciation techniques), fuel types, and regional fuel prices to fit the necessary truck or fleet analysis. Users can also incorporate the impact of income taxes into business decisions, where appropriate, and perform what-if scenarios. Depending on needs, the template can support single-vehicle comparison decisions, vehicle class analysis and whole fleet calculations. It can also act as a forecast tool when paired with a price sensitivity analysis — often necessary when dealing with volatile fuel price scenarios. The tool is a free member benefit — not available for public purchase (details at ntea.com/lifecycle). With this information, you are able to make strategic decisions and find the right vehicle for your organization.

Bottom line
Providing compliant vehicles is essential to your company’s success. Improperly loaded vehicles negatively affect drivability and reliability, and open your organization to unnecessary risk and liability exposure. These scenarios all have cost implications that can be avoided through education and proper vehicle design.

I Want to Buy a Truck

By looking at the title of this post you are probably wondering why, I Want to Buy a Truck? In this brief story that I once read in a Sales Training book, it shows how customers do not buy products for the sake of buying the product, they buy the product because they are seeking a desired outcome.

A CUSTOMER WALKS INTO A HARDWARE STORE …

I Want to Buy a Truck
I Need a Drill …

A customer walks into a hardware store and says to the clerk “I need a drill”. The clerk responds “Well, not really, You want to make a hole”

By now you are probably wondering what this has to do with Medium Duty Trucks or the title, I Want to Buy a Truck? The fact is this same concept applies here.

A CUSTOMER WALKS INTO NICHOLAS TRUCK SALES & SERVICE and says to me “I want to buy a truck”. I respond “you want to buy a truck, well not really, you want a piece of equipment to perform a specific task as efficiently and as profitably as possible.”

Now that we have established that, it becomes my job as a Professional Truck Sales Consultant to help this customer define or clarify what the specific task is. While there are a million different scenarios that I could use as an example, lets stick with what might be the most common in the medium duty truck world, a Box Truck. Box truck customers are not buying a Box Truck because it looks pretty parked up against their loading dock – they are buying a box truck because they need to transport their products or services from Point A to Point B as cost efficiently as possible.

Questions I would ask a potential Box Truck customer include but not be limited to:

  1. How much weight do you need to carry?
  2. Isuzu Medium Truck
    I Want to Buy a Truck, Hino or Isuzu?

    How many miles will this vehicle be driven annually?

  3. Does your product need to be refrigerated or Frozen?
    1. If so, at what temperature?
  4. Does your truck need to be dock height?
  5. Do you do more city driving or will this truck be mostly on the highway?
  6. How much product will you carry at once?
    1. What size box will you need?
  7. What kind of cargo control do you require on the inside of the box?
  8. Do you require a lift gate?
    1. If so what Capacity?
    2. How big of a platform do you need?
  9. Will you need a ramp?
  10. Would a side door be helpful?
  11. Will a fork lift be loading this vehicle?
  12. Do you need or want a Diesel or Gas truck?
  13. Do you require this truck to be under or over CDL?
  14. What commercial truck manufacturer do you have a preference for, Hino or Isuzu?

Customers may or may not know the answers to these questions off the top of their head, and that is perfectly fine. Because of that this gives me and the customer an opportunity to discuss their needs further, and will allow me to quote them the right truck for the right job and the desired outcome.

When you are in the market for a truck to help grow your business, please do not hesitate to call Nicholas Truck Sales to discuss it. We will help you be profitable, one truck at a time!
