ANAHEIM, California – Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc., distributor of low cab-forward trucks, announced Friday that the 20,000th gasoline-powered Isuzu N-Series truck has been produced at the Spartan Motors Inc., facility in Charlotte, Michigan.

The Isuzu N-Series gas truck is the only gasoline-powered low cab-forward truck available in North America. Assembly of the gas trucks began at Spartan in April 2011.

“It hardly seems possible that it has already been four years since Spartan Motors began production of our gasoline-powered trucks,” said Shaun Skinner, executive vice president and general manager of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “It’s clear that there is a demand for a gas-engine entry in the low cab-forward market, and we’re proud that we’re the only brand to meet that need.”

Isuzu N-Series gas trucks are powered by a Vortec 6.0-liter small-block V8 engine that produces 297 horsepower at 4,300 rpm and generates 372 pounds-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. The powerplant is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with double overdrive and lock-up torque converter for enhanced fuel economy and performance.
