Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc. announced it has delivered the 500,000th Isuzu-built truck since the brand entered the North American market in 1984.
The truck, an N-Series, was sold to Farmers Home Furniture in Dublin, Ga.
“We are very proud that a half a million Isuzu-built trucks have been sold over the last 31 years,” said Shaun Skinner, executive vice president and general manager of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “This milestone is really a tribute to the durability and reliability of the Isuzu product, and the loyalty of customers like Farmers Home Furniture.”
Isuzu diesel-powered trucks range from the 12,000-lb. GVWR NPR ECO-MAX to the 19,500-lb. GVWR NRR. Both standard and crew cab models are offered and all are available in a range of wheelbases to meet the needs of a variety of applications.
Isuzu is also the only brand to offer a gasoline-powered low-cab-forward truck in North America. The NPR-Gas — also available in a variety of wheelbases, cab styles and GVWRs — is assembled in Charlotte, Mich.
An optional version of the gasoline engine is capable of being converted to run on compressed natural gas or propane. Isuzu is also the only manufacturer to offer, CNG/LPG-capable low-cab-forward trucks in North America.
