Isuzu Australia has launched its newest medium-duty range at an event in Melbourne this week, unveiling the 2016 F-Series truck line-up with new engines, new look, and a new transmission option.

Isuzu Australia managing director and CEO Koichi (Mike) Yoda says the company focused on reliability and durability when bringing the range to Australia and hopes the new F-Series will cater for broader customer needs.

The biggest change comes in the form of two new drivelines for the Isuzu range; the four-cylinder 4HK1 turbo-charged and intercooled diesel engine and the six-cylinder 6HK1 engine with Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) technology.

“We’re all too aware that the aims and ambitions of many larger fleets, as well as owner drivers, are aligned to sourcing better outcomes for our environment,” director and COO Phil Taylor says.

“We’ve responded to that, in particular, with the new 4HK1 engine technology, which is the cleanest Japanese medium-duty diesel engine currently available.”

Isuzu Australia says the smaller engine, which meets the Euro 6 emissions standard, is a “low displacement and high horsepower engine.

“For these models, the new 4HK1 replaces a six-cylinder engine, yet offers the same peak power and up to eight per cent more torque,” Isuzu says.

The addition of DOC to the exhaust and emissions systems removes the need for selective catalytic reduction (SCR) or diesel particulate filter regenerations, Isuzu says, making it the only medium-duty truck engine to do so.

The truck maker says this will reduce service frequency for vehicles.
