The big news from Isuzu Truck is that its brand new Euro VI Isuzu 12.00 tonne GVW ‘FORWARD’ is making its debut at the CV Show. It features a compact overall footprint as well as class-leading carrying capacity of 7952kgs (body/payload). The Isuzu F120.240 4×2 rigid is really compact in size with a low chassis height and offers great versatility.
Available with either Isuzu’s Easyshift or manual transmissions, it is easy to drive and offers excellent manoeuvrability. With Isuzu’s Euro VI four-cylinder 5.2 litre diesel engine producing 240 PS power and 765Nm torque, this engine really does offer superb fuel economy and productivity.
Also making its debut is the Euro VI Isuzu ‘Urban’ N75.150(E) short wheelbase chassis, featuring a Brit-Tipp all-steel tipper body that offers a payload of 3780kgs. This vehicle is part of a programme of pre-bodied Isuzu tippers that have full ECWVTA and are available off-the-shelf, for customers that require a tipper in a hurry. A similar programme is also in place with Brit-Tipp on long wheelbase chassis with aluminium drop-side bodies – these vehicles have a payload of 4180kgs.
Completing the four vehicle line-up for Isuzu are two Isuzu ‘Forward’ N75.190 Euro VI rigids for two of the industry’s biggest names, Argos and HSS. Both vehicles feature the popular Easyshift transmission.
As one of an order for 66 new Isuzus, the Argos 7.5 tonner has an extended 5.3 m wheelbase and is fitted with a demount body highlighting the new striking Argos livery. The HSS vehicle is part of a 19-strong order of Isuzus and is fitted with a drop-side body with a 2-tonne cantilever tail lift.
