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.
