Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc., distributor of low-cab-forward trucks, announced that the 30,000th gasoline-powered Isuzu N-Series truck has been produced at the Spartan Motors, Inc. facility in Charlotte, Mich. The truck rolled off the line on Friday, June 10, 2016.

“Last April, we announced that our partners at Spartan Motors had produced their 20,000th gas-powered Isuzu truck in only four years. Now, only a year later, we celebrate another 10,000 trucks produced,” said Shaun Skinner, president of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “The demand for gasoline-engine low-cab-forward trucks is growing, and we’re the only brand able to meet that need. But we couldn’t do it without the performance and reliability of our Isuzu N-Gas truck and the tremendous build quality of the finished product, thanks to Spartan.”

Assembly of Isuzu N-Series gas trucks began at Spartan in April 2011.

Isuzu N-Series gas trucks are powered by a Vortec 6.0L small-block V-8 engine that produces 297 hp at 4,300 rpm and generates 372 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. The powerplant is mated to a 6-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).

A full range of gasoline-powered models is available:

NPR (12,000-lb. GVWR) Single Cab in wheelbases of 109, 132.5, 150, and 176 inchesCrew Cab in wheelbases of 150 and 176 inches.

Isuzu NPR XD Coming Soon

Isuzu NPR XD Commercial Truck arriving at the end of August

Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, has announced that they will be adding the new Isuzu NPR XD to their commercial truck line. The Isuzu NPR XD will boast a gvw rating of 16,000-lbs. The new XD is meant to provide a relaible Isuzu truck that falls between the already popular NPR HD, which ranks in at 14,500 GVWR and the more heavy duty NQR which is a 17,950-pound GVWR truck.

More New Isuzu Commercial Trucks

In a recent comment by Shaun Skinner, the executive vice president and GM of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, he stated the following: “This new diesel model meets a number of vocational applications and requirements that previously might have required moving from an NPR-HD up to the NQR.”

That means a middle of the road solution for those who need a little more than an HD, but not quite as much as the NQR.

This new Isuzu NPR XD is a cabover truck and the standard single cab will be available in the following wheelbase and payload options:
109 in. WB
132.5 in. WB
150 in. WB
176 in. WB

the standard single cab body/payload allowance range is from 9,281 to 9,490 pounds.

crew cab options are:
150 in. WB
176 in. WB

and the body/payload allowance ranges from 8,711 to 8,779 pounds.

Like some of the other reliable Isuzu trucks, the new NPR-XD will be powered by the popular Isuzu 4HK1-TC 5.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine and will come equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission found in some of the other Isuzu model trucks.

The Isuzu 4HK1-TC 5.2-liter packs a powerful 215 horsepower and 452 pounds-feet of torque at 1,850 rpm. The engine carries a B10 durability of 310,000 miles, which, according to the […]
