Isuzu Introduces 2016 13,000-lbs. NPR Diesel
Standard Powertrain Limited Warranty

Isuzu Commercial Truck's new NPR Diesel is powered by its newest and most modern powerplant. the 3.0-liter 4JJ1-TC turbocharged and intercooled diesel engine. The powerplant produces 150 horsepower and 282 lbs.-ft. of torque at 1,600 to 2,800 rpm.

Isuzu Commercial Truck introduced its newest model-the 2016 NPR Diesel. The truck features a 13,000-lbs. GVWR and a 33.5-inch frame to offer more capability than previously available in an entry-level Isuzu diesel truck-while still providing legendary Isuzu durability and fuel economy.

"With a 13,000-lbs. GVWR, the new NPR Diesel approaches the capacity of a Class 4 truck, but at a Class 3 price," said Shaun Skinner, executive vice president. " This truck is the latest example of how Isuzu is committed to lowering the cost of truck ownership without sacrificing performance, practicality, long-term reliability or fuel efficiency. "

Among the notable features of the 2016 NPR Diesel: standard 30-gallon rear-mounted in-rail fuel tank; frame width of 33.5 inches that will accept bodies up to 102 inches wide and 91 inches high; four wheelbases-109, 132.5, 150, and 176 inches--that will accept body lengths up to 20 feet.

"With its peak torque available at low and mid-range engine speeds, the 4J engine gives drivers both good off-the-line acceleration and passing power," Skinner said.

That power doesn't come at the expense of durability. The engine has a B-10 diesel engine life rating of 310,000 miles. The engine is capable of running on B20 biodiesel fuel. For more information visit
