Isuzu Trucks To Begin Manufacturing Low-cab Forward Medium Duty Diesel Engines

Consumers seeking Isuzu trucks for sale will be pleased to learn of the company’s latest news. On July 9, 2010, Isuzu announced that they have begun producing the first low-cab-forward medium duty diesel engines. This will be the first arrival of this type of engine on the market. Designed to meet even the most strict environmental emission standards, the new engine is expected to increase sales among the 2011 N-Series trucks, which will include these new engines.

The three strictest criteria which the N-Series trucks will meet are: the United States 2010 Environmental Protection Agency’s Emission Standards, the Clean Idle certification and the California Air Resources Board. Expected to arrive in the United States in August 2010, the ECO-MAX LCF trucks will increase fuel economy up to 20%, also including the capability for increased payload capacity for the ECO-MAX LCF model. Isuzu’s new ECO-MAX LCF model also boasts 12,000 pounds GVWR.

Also in the N-Series, the ECO-MAX is arriving soon to be released with 2011 models, full of advantageous features. With a 4JJ1-TC next generation diesel engine, this model also has a B10 engine life expectancy of 310,000 miles. This is the first time the engine type will be released in the United States; previously this 4J engine has only been included in foreign models since 1984.

This model features 150 horsepower and 282 pounds per foot of torque and a 4-cylinder turbo charged 3.0 L engine. With 6-speed auto transmission, lockup PTO and double overdrive, the ECO MAX is certainly an impressive and environmentally safe choice. When the truck requires service, the cab is conveniently designed to tilt. Isuzu expects that drivers who purchase this model will see less downtime, as well as an increase in fuel efficiency and payload capacity.

Three additional models in the 2011 N-Series to be released are: NQR, NPR-HD and NRR. The NQR is 17,950 pounds GVWR, the NPR-HD is 14,500 pounds GVWR and the NRR is 19,500 pounds GVWR. In these models is an improved revision of the 2005 5.2 L 4HK1-TC engine. With 175 – 190 HP in the manual option and 205 – 210 HP in the automatic option, there is a sufficient hike in output power. Both environmentally friendly and fuel efficient, these engines easily meet the standards set by EPA 2010, HD-ODB and CARB. An increase of 8% in fuel economy is an added plus to this package.

While maintaining their reputation for producing trucks that excel in environmental efficiency, Isuzu has certainly met and exceeded demands with their new lineup of N-Series trucks for 2011. Drivers should see less maintenance, a longer engine life with less chance of early overhaul needed, much more fuel efficiency and an increased payload capacity; meanwhile the trucks maintain their power. With the increased necessity for “green” engines, Isuzu’s new engine will make an impact on reduction of environmental toxins. As always, drivers will be pleased to know that the new 2011 N-Series trucks will be available in the popular traditional Isuzu colors.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What 4 cylinder diesel Pickups have been in the American Market?
    so I’m looking for a 4 cylinder diesel pickup truck to convert to vegetable oil. I’m not sure what makes, models, and years to keep an eye out for. Any suggestions for trucks that have been in the American market? Are these trucks more common on the Mexican or Canadian market?
    Also a question on terminology: are these 4 cylinder pickups known as compact, light duty, or what? what is the difference between these terms? Are there any other terms that would help me to find these smaller pickups?
    well thats more questions than i meant to ask, but I’m very confused. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Toyota, Isuzu, Chevy Luv, VW, and also the Ford Ranger. These are considered compact. Compact is a smaller truck than the light duty. light duty is considered a half ton.

      The VW is a great runner and can be found up to the early 80′s as well as the Luv. The Ford was around 86-89 and the Isuzu and Toyota were until early 90′s.

  2. QUESTION:
    How far away is the automotive industry from producing 4-door, 4×4, 4-cylinder, diesel, hybrid, pickup trucks?
    I want a pickup that has great towing capability (i.e. > 8,000 lbs), can stand up to a Montana winter, and gets over 30mpg. I’m cheering you on Detroit!

    • ANSWER:
      I’m sure they already have the technology, but they (the auto industry) insist that they can’t implement it in their vehicles because it will increase the cost of the vehicles and consumer won’t be able to afford them. Nevermind that I see all these jerks driving around in Hummers and Escalades.
      If the government started imposing heavy taxes on inefficient vehicles, then perhaps the tide would turn.

  3. QUESTION:

I need to know if I can afford to drive the beast. This truck is the 8 cylinder turbo diesel engine with the standard 8ft bed, 4 door supercrew cab, automatic tranny. I don’t know the gear ratio or if anything has been altered in this truck. I am hoping someone can give me some much needed info on this pickup.

  4. QUESTION:
    how much water can a 4 cyclinder toyota pickup haul?
    I have a 1994 Toyota Pickup truck that has four cylinders. I need to haul water to my house while my diesel is in the shop. I have a 250 gal water tank that fits in the bed of the truck. I’m wondering how full I can safely fill the tank so I don’t jack up my truck.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Both of you guys are wrong water weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon http://www.fourmilab.ch/hackdiet/www/subsection1_4_2_0_7.html

      8.34×250=2085lbs I would check to see what the factory limit is.

    • ANSWER:
      not trying to insult you,but have you tried the usual,autozone,dealer,or other parts stores? give them a call. if you have a carquest or O’rielly’s they usually stock parts that can be hard to find. also try places that service diesel fleet vehicles, and it may have an application that has crossed over to a more recent model year.
