Isuzu Commercial Truck of America introduced its 12,000-pound GVWR NPR Eco-Max low-cab-forward truck, offering up to 20 percent improved fuel economy and increased payload capacity compared to previous NPR models. The truck is powered by Isuzu’s next-generation 4JJ1-TC diesel engine, which has operated globally in Isuzu’s N-Series models for the last five years; this is the first time the 4J engine will be used in the U.S. market. The turbocharged 4-cylinder 3-liter engine offers a B10 engine life rating of 310,000 miles and is mated to an Aisin heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission with double overdrive and lockup PTO function.
