ISUZU BUILDS 50,000th N-SERIES GAS POWERED TRUCK

50,000th Truck Rolls Off US Production Line

The Premier Gasoline-Powered Low Cab Forward Truck
Reaches Another Production Milestone

Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc. has announced that on Wednesday August 1st, 2018, the 50,000th Isuzu N-Series gasoline-powered truck was produced in Charlotte, Michigan. Production began in 2011, making the N-Series the first low-cab-forward gas-powered truck in the North American market.

“We anticipated the demand for gasoline-engine low-cab-forward trucks over seven years ago” said Shaun Skinner, president of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “New competitors have entered the marketplace, but our N-Series gasoline truck is still the premier vehicle in its class. That’s a testament to the performance and reliability Isuzu is famous for and the tremendous build quality of the finished product, thanks to Spartan [Motors, Inc].”

The gas-powered N-Series trucks employ a Vortec 6.0-liter small block V8 generating 297hp at 4,300 rpm and 372 lbs./ft of torque at 4,000rpm – the most torque of any gas-powered low-cab-forward truck in North America. A six-speed automatic transmission with double overdrive and lock-up torque converter delivers enhanced fuel economy and performance. An alternate 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:
