Isuzu Assembled it’s 50,000th N-Series Gasoline Truck

The gas-powered Isuzu N-Series truck is produced in Charlotte, Michigan
Isuzu Commercial Truck of America announced that the 50,000th gasoline-powered Isuzu N-Series truck has been produced in Charlotte, Michigan. The truck rolled off the assembly line on Wednesday, August 1, 2018.
The Isuzu N-Series truck was the first gasoline-powered low cab forward truck available in North America. Assembly of the truck began at Spartan Motors, Inc. in April 2011.
“We anticipated the demand for gasoline-engine low-cab-forward trucks over seven years ago, and the assembly of our 50,000th truck proves that our instincts were correct,” said Shaun Skinner, president of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “New competitors have entered the marketplace, but our N-Series gasoline truck is still the premier vehicle in its class. That’s a testament to the performance and reliability Isuzu is famous for and the tremendous build quality of the finished product, thanks to Spartan.”
Isuzu N-Series gas-powered trucks feature a Vortec 6.0-liter small-block V8 engine that produces 297 horsepower at 4,300 rpm and generates 372 lbs.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm (the most torque of any gas-powered LCF truck in North America). The powerplant is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with double overdrive and lock-up torque converter for enhanced fuel economy and performance. An optional version of the engine is capable of being converted to run on compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG, or propane).
