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.

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.”

Isuzu N-Series 3rd Generation Elf – Throwback Thursday

The 1975 Third Generation Isuzu Elf

The third generation Elf arrived in June 1975, in Elf 150 and 250 forms. It was nicknamed “Tora-san” after Kiyoshi Atsumi’s (a famous Japanese actor) most beloved film character which supposedly looked similar. In January 1977 a 250 Low-Flat model was added, followed in 1978 by a facelift and an altered front grille. In 1979 a bigger 3.3 liter version of the 2-tonne (4,400 lb) Elf 250 was introduced, called the “Elf 250 Super”. There was also a “Elf 150 Super” version, which has the larger, 2.4 liter C240 diesel engine which was usually installed in the Elf 250.

Do you have an old truck you’d like us to post on Throwback Thursday. Send us your pictures of your logoed or non-logoed trucks and your truck may be selected and posted on our Throwback Thursday posts.

Special Thanks to Wikipedia for Truck pictures and historical information.

A tribute to Isuzu. 30 years of success

3o years of making the best and most reliable medium duty trucks in the industry

We thought a tribute to the Isuzu N-Series (Elf) from 1984 would be appropriate. Here’s a cool old picture of a 1984 Isuzu Elf (N-series) truck. Then known as the 4th generation Elf, double cab, wide body. They were great then and they’re still great today! We also included the Isuzu 30th anniversary logo.
