ANAHEIM, Calif. — Isuzu Trucks has announced the latest addition to their N-Series diesel trucks – the NPR-XD.
The NPR-XD bridges the gap between the NPR-HD (with a gross vehicle weight rating of 14,500-lb) and the NQR (17,950-lb GVWR) with a weight rating of 16,000-lb.
“This new diesel model meets a number of vocational applications and requirements that previously might have required moving from an NPR-HD up to the NQR,” said Shaun Skinner, executive vice-president and general manager of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “Now, the NPR-XD offers more payload capacity at an even more competitive price.”
The new NPR-XD standard cab will be available in the 109-, 132.5-, 150 -and 176-inch wheelbases. The crew cab will be available in 150- and 176-inch wheelbases. Every NPR-XD is powered by the Isuzu 4HK1-TC 5.2-litre diesel engine and with a six-speed automatic transmission the powerplant gives 215 horsepower.
