Introducing Isuzu’s New Class 6 & 7 F-Series Models Featuring the Cummins B6.7 Diesel Engine
Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc. has geared up to release its new 2022 Class 6 & 7 F-Series models which will feature the Cummins B6.7 diesel engine.
Like other Isuzu commercial truck models, the new Isuzu F-Series Class 6 and 7 trucks are redesigned with customers in mind, delivering the acclaimed benefits of a low cab forward design combined with the power and durability of a Cummins engine.
2022 Isuzu trucks available with Cummins engine:
- Class 6 FTR: 25,900-lb GVWR, 19,000-lb rear GAWR
- Class 6 FVR (de-rated): 25,950-lb GVWR, 21,000-lb rear GAWR
- Class 7 FVR: 33,000-lb GVWR, 21,000-lb rear GAWR
New Isuzu Models Feature Superior Maneuverability, Versatility and More Cargo Space
The 2022 F-Series will now be available in two models: the Class 6 FTR (25,950 – GVWR) and the Class 7 FVR (33,000 – GVWR). The line-up also will include a de-rated Class 6 FVR. A total of eight wheelbases will be offered for the FTR and FVR models.
The low cab forward’s larger cab-to-axle (CA) space provides the Isuzu F-Series more cargo capacity versus conventional cab competitors with a comparable wheelbase. This allows customers more versatility with their body application choices to accommodate heavier or more spacious cargo loads, depending on their vocational needs.
The FTR and FVR will have exceptional maneuverability, visibility, and comfort, which has become ‘standard’ for all Isuzu low cab forward trucks. Drivers will appreciate the 50-degree inner wheel cut that gives the Isuzu F-Series class-leading turning diameters between 43.7-ft (152” WB) and 65-ft. (248” WB). Outstanding visibility is made possible by Isuzu’s legendary low cab forward-designed cab and new LED headlamps.
More Power and Torque for Heavier Payloads Thanks to a Powerful Cummins B6.7 Engine
The B6.7L is the most popular engine ever built by Cummins — and rightfully so, it has been tested and proven with more than 13 million engines produced over nearly 40-years with billions of miles driven.
The B6.7L is a 6-cylinder diesel engine that outputs 260-hp and 660 lb.-ft. of torque. It is the highest horsepower and torque offering from the Cummins B6.7L. This power and torque combination will easily move heavier payloads through urban environments and on the highway.
“The Cummins B6.7 has a legacy that goes back almost 40 years, so we’re excited to see it in the Isuzu F-Series,” said Rob Neitzke, Executive Director of Cummins On-Highway OEM Business. “It gives Class 6 and 7 truck buyers in the U.S. and Canadian markets new ways to experience the B6.7, with configurations that don’t exist today.”
The Allison Rugged Duty Series Transmission was built for the medium-duty market. Its proven durability and reliability provide greater uptime with a lower cost of operation.
- FTR: Allison 2550 RDS (Includes Park Pawl)
- FVR (De-rate): Allison 2500 RDS (No Park Pawl)
- FVR: Allison 2500 RDS (No Park Pawl)
Isuzu F-Series Chassis Offers Comfort and Safety with New and Updated Features
All models offer eight wheelbases, ranging from 152 to 248 inches, accommodating bodies up to 30 feet in length. Other features include:
LED lights: LED headlamps and daytime running lights provide enhanced illumination for safer driving and last longer than halogen bulbs for better value.
Enhanced Interior: Dual colored seats with a two-tone grey interior design that creates a comfortable cabin for passengers.
Turning Diameter: The Isuzu F-Series’ 50-degree inner wheel cut provides a class-leading turning diameter that eases driver effort in tight urban environments. This reduces the number of three-point turns in your routes, saves you driving time and makes for safer driving.
Exhaust: The Cummins Single Module After-Treatment has a linear design to keep the frame rails clean. It incorporates the diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalyst reduction (SCR), exhaust cooler and electronic exhaust restriction into a compact single-piece unit.
Fuel Tanks: The Isuzu F-Series is available with 50-gallon and 100-gallon fuel tanks. This gives customers the option to increase their range and lessen fuel stops.
Air Suspension: The Isuzu F-Series trucks are available with air suspension. The standard air compressor outputs 17-CFM to quickly fill the air tanks and fill the suspension’s air bags. This option is popular for customers hauling fragile cargo or those who need to lower the chassis height for loading and unloading.
Wheels/Tires: Isuzu F-Series trucks are equipped with standard 11R22.5 tires on steel wheels. Customers can opt for aluminum wheels and, on the class 6 FTR, have the option for low-pro tires that lower the chassis for special applications like rollback bodies.
Isuzu Cummins Powertrain Partnership (ICPP)
This is the first product to come to the global market from the Isuzu Cummins Powertrain Partnership (ICPP) between Isuzu Motors Limited and Cummins Inc., which was formed in 2019.
The combination of Isuzu’s outstanding medium-duty truck reputation and Cummins diesel engine expertise in the US and Canada creates a competitive product. The F-Series trucks will meet customer demand for urban-friendly low cab forward trucks while giving Isuzu dealers and Cummins the opportunity to expand their customer bases.
