ISUZU is mak­ing it eas­ier for light-com­mer­cial driv­ers to get into a more pro­duc­tive ve­hi­cle with the roll­out of its en­try-level, ready-to-work NLR 200 Tray­pack truck.

The small­est Tray­pack is aimed squarely at busi­ness own­ers who are tired of the com­pro­mises they have to make with a ute and want to step up to a ve­hi­cle that can get the job done.

Isuzu is of­fer­ing the NLR Tray­pack in short and medium wheel­base mod­els with a pay­load ca­pac­ity about two tonnes.

The short-wheel­base model is fit­ted with a 3630mm x 1995mm alu­minium drop tray with one drop­side on each side. The medium-wheel­base ver­sion is 870mm longer, with a 4500mm x 1995mm tray and two drop­sides on each side.

As with all of Isuzu’s ready-towork mod­els, the Tray­pack can be driven straight from the dealer to the job site.

The Tray­pack can be driven on a car li­cence, which makes it ideal for a small busi­ness want­ing to step up to a larger work­horse.

Mak­ing the tran­si­tion even eas­ier are Isuzu’s car-like fea­tures: anti-skid brakes, driver’s airbag, hill-start as­sis­tance, trac­tion con­trol and an easy-driv­ing, eco­nom­i­cal four-cylin­der en­gine.

With 150kW and 375Nm on tap, the 3.0-litre tur­bod­iesel en­gine has all of the get up and go needed to carry a de­cent pay­load and still haul a loaded trailer.

Front coil sus­pen­sion soaks up the bumps and makes for a comfortable ride in the cab.

The NLR Tray­pack is $33,990 for the short-wheel­base model and $34,990 for its longer sib­ling.

For that you also get re­mote key­less lock­ing, power win­dows and mir­rors, air­con­di­tion­ing and CD player.

Comfortable: the Isuzu NLR 200 Tray­pack has car­like fea­tures such as anti-skid brakes, driver’s airbag, hill-start as­sis­tance and trac­tion con­trol.
