Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc. has introduced its newest model – the 2016 NPR Diesel. The truck features a 13,000-pound GVWR and a 33.5-inch frame to offer more capability than previously available in an entry-level Isuzu diesel truck, while still providing legendary Isuzu durability and fuel economy.
Among the notable features of the 2016 NPR Diesel are a standard 30-gallon rear-mounted in-rail fuel tank; a frame width of 33.5 inches that will accept bodies up to 102 inches wide and 91 inches high; and four wheelbases – 109, 132.5, 150 and 176 inches – that will accept body lengths up to 20 feet.
The new NPR Diesel is powered by the newest and most modern power plant in the Isuzu family, the 3.0-liter 4JJ1-TC turbocharged and intercooled diesel engine. The power plant produces 150 horsepower and 282 pound-feet of torque at 1,600 to 2,800 rpm.
Production of the 2016 NPR Diesel will begin in Japan in November 2015, and the truck will be available at Isuzu’s network of nearly 300 dealers in North America shortly thereafter. www.isuzucv.com
