The N Series range is now more specification-rich than ever before, with new safety features headlining updates available on the new model

Isuzu has released details of the new N Series range. The popular light-duty truck is now more specification-rich than ever before, with a suite of new safety features headlining updates available on the new model, the company says.

"Isuzu N Series trucks have a reputation for offering an impressive combination of clean yet powerful fuel-efficient engines, along with intelligent design, delivering a comprehensive package for operators," says Dave Ballantyne, general manager of Isuzu Trucks New Zealand.

"They are renowned for all-round performance, driveability, comfort, and reliability. Now, with the addition of an array of new safety features, the Isuzu N Series delivers on a range of ‘must-have’ requirements demanded not only by corporate fleets but also smaller owner-operators."

Many of the new safety features were once the domain of cars and European trucks but have cascaded through the range and found their way into light-duty models. The performance capability of N Series has also been enhanced, with the new NMR model receiving a six-speed manual transmission and matching rear-axle ratio, improving gradeability and fuel consumption.

Higher rated tyres (205/85R16) provide extra front axle capacity of 210kg and additional rear axle capacity of 380kg respectively. The enhancements are rounded out with the introduction of a new interior colour and updated headlights complete with LED low-beam lights.

"With an unequalled number of variants available, it really is the smart choice in light-duty trucks," says Dave.
