Isuzu produces 50,000th gasoline-powered N-Series truck

Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc, distributor of low-cab-forward trucks, has announced that the 50,000th gasoline-powered Isuzu N-Series truck has been produced in Charlotte MI. The truck rolled off the assembly line August 1, 2018.

The Isuzu N-Series truck was the first gasoline-powered low-cab-forward truck available in North America. Assembly of the truck began at Spartan Motors Inc in April 2011.

“We anticipated the demand for gasoline-engine low-cab-forward trucks over seven years ago, and the assembly of our 50,000th truck proves that our instincts were correct,” said Shaun Skinner, president of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America.

Isuzu N-Series gas-powered trucks feature a Vortec 6.0-liter small-block V8 engine that produces 297 horsepower at 4,300 rpm and generates 372 ft-lbs of torque at 4,000 rpm (the most torque of any gas-powered LCF truck in North America). The powerplant is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with double overdrive and lock-up torque converter for enhanced fuel economy and performance. An optional version of the engine can be converted to run on compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG, or propane).

A full range of gasoline-powered models is available:

•NPR (12,000-lb. GVWR)

•Single Cab in wheelbases of 109, 132.5, 150 and 176 inches

•Crew Cab in wheelbases of 150 and 176 inches

•NPR-HD (14,500-lb. GVWR)

•Single Cab in wheelbases of 109, 132.5, 150 and 176 inches

•Crew Cab in wheelbases of 150 and 176 inches

“We are proud to offer our gas-powered N-Series truck in a wide range of configurations to meet our customers’ needs,” Skinner said. “And together with our dealerships and Spartan Motors, we’re looking forward to the next 50,000.”
