The Isuzu Trade­pack has been a mas­sive suc­cess and a main­stay amongst tradies since hitting the mar­ket back in 2003, com­bin­ing se­ri­ous pay­load and driv­abil­ity for tradies ready to go to the next level.

Based on the hugely pop­u­lar Isuzu NPR 45/55155, the NPR Trade­pack is ef­fi­cient and nim­ble with im­pres­sive strength and load ca­pac­ity.

And now, out­side of the paint colours Quick­sil­ver or Arch White, Isuzu NPR Trade­pack cabs are avail­able in eye-catch­ing Ebony Black or Dark Blue.

Look­ing sharp, whether you’re on site or out and about af­ter hours is im­por­tant, and the new Trade­pack coloured cab range cer­tainly de­liv­ers.

With the flex­i­bil­ity of ei­ther a short or medium wheel­base, the Trade­pack’s de­sign suits a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions for the mod­ern tradie.

The short wheel­base model fea­tures a 3.45-me­tre-long heavy duty alu­minium tray while main­tain­ing a turn­ing cir­cle tighter than many of the best-sell­ing util­i­ties at 9.6 me­tres, while the medium wheel­base model’s tray is a huge 4.5 me­tres long, of­fer­ing grow­ing busi­nesses even greater load space.

With a choice of ei­ther a 4,500 kg GVM rat­ing for car li­cence op­er­a­tion, or a 5,500 kg GVM rat­ing for in­creased pay­load, and the ca­pa­ble 5.2-litre Isuzu 4HK1-TCN en­gine pro­duc­ing 114kW @ 2,600rpm and 419Nm @ 1,600-2,600rpm, the Trade­pack has the com­bi­na­tion of power and ca­pac­ity to be the right­ful king of the build­ing site.

And once you’ve driven off the work­site, the short wheel­base op­tion means the Trade­pack can still be parked in the lo­cal hard­ware carpark or a stan­dard res­i­den­tial park­ing space.

Isuzu’s also cut out the has­sle of wait­ing for a body-builder thanks to the fac­tory fit­ted and Isuzu war­ranted body, get­ting you back to the job site as soon as pos­si­ble.

The whole de­sign of the Trade­pack has been pur­pose-built with the busy, am­bi­tious trades­per­son in mind.

With the stan­dard fit newly-de­signed gen­uine Isuzu bull bar, 3,500kg rated tow­bar, heavy-duty gal­vanised lad­der racks, in­te­grated load re­straint an­chor points, re­mov­able drop sides and rear tail­gate, head­board in­clud­ing rear win­dow pro­tec­tor, and Isuzu satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion and re­vers­ing cam­era fit­ted as stan­dard, the Trade­pack comes ready to work in more ways than one.

The Isuzu 45-155 Trade­pack model can be driven on a car li­cence – al­low­ing business own­ers max­i­mum flex­i­bil­ity when nom­i­nat­ing their driv­ing work­force – but it re­tains all the power and load ca­pac­ity peo­ple ex­pect from Aus­tralia’s top-sell­ing truck brand.

The Trade­pack’s car-like driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence is pro­vided by ei­ther Isuzu’s smooth-shift­ing MYY-6E six-speed man­ual, or the Premium model’s sixspeed au­to­mated man­ual trans­mis­sion (AMT) with both fully clutch­less and man­ual op­er­a­tion modes, of­fer­ing so­phis­ti­ca­tion and fuel ef­fi­ciency.

And while the Trade­pack feels and drives like a car, it of­fers you the on-road safety and pro­tec­tion of a tough, well-built truck as well as an im­pres­sive raft of safety tech­nol­ogy.

The Trade­pack of­fers anti-lock brak­ing (ABS), anti-skid reg­u­la­tor (ASR) trac­tion con­trol and

Isuzu elec­tronic sta­bil­ity con­trol (IESC), which au­to­mat­i­cally de­tects and helps cor­rect an un­ex­pected loss of con­trol.

With power, pay­load, car-like ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity and com­fort, and now in a new range of strik­ing colours, the Trade­pack is ready when you are.

Look­ing sharp, whether you’re on site or out and about af­ter hours is im­por­tant, and the new Trade­pack coloured cab range cer­tainly de­liv­ers.
