ISUZU BEEFS UP SER­VI­CEPACK

Owner Driver - - Owner/Driver -

ISUZU SAYS its Ser­vi­cepack ve­hi­cles have been de­scribed as ‘tool sheds on wheels’. Now, Isuzu claims that its lat­est ad­di­tions to the range – the NLS 45-150 All Wheel Drive Crew Ser­vi­cepack, the NPR 45/55-155 Ser­vi­cepack, the NPS 75-155 4x4 Ser­vi­cepack and the NPS 75-155 4x4 Crew Ser­vi­cepack – will en­able driv­ers to se­curely trans­port more equip­ment to the job site, wher­ever that may be.

The man­u­fac­turer says the NLS 45-150 All Wheel Drive (AWD) Crew Ser­vi­cepack is poised to be the new ‘go-to’ ve­hi­cle for fleet and ser­vice man­agers. It comes with a the Isuzu 4JJ1-TCS en­gine, pro­duc­ing 110kW @ 2800rpm and 375Nm @ 1600-2800rpm.

“A great deal of con­sid­er­a­tion has gone into en­sur­ing the AWD Crew Ser­vi­cepack caters to the unique needs of Aus­tralian fleet man­agers and driv­ers,” Isuzu Aus­tralia chief en­gi­neer, prod­uct strat­egy Si­mon Humphries says.

The crew cab boasts has a rear bench seat with ca­pac­ity for three, a con­toured ad­justable driver’s bucket seat, and a front pas­sen­ger bench seat that can fit two.

The NLS 45-150 Crew Ser­vi­cepack has a GVM of 4500kg and a 2500kg-rated tow­bar with in­te­grated rear step.

“The AWD NLS Ser­vi­cepack is a di­rect re­sponse to the tricky Aus­tralian con­di­tions light trucks of­ten have to nav­i­gate,” Humphries says.

Isuzu claims that where the NLS 45-150 Crew Ser­vi­cepack was en­gi­neered as a go-any­where so­lu­tion for op­er­a­tors, the NPR 45/55-155 Ser­vi­cepack was birthed to ful­fil a dif­fer­ent mis­sion – to out-carry, out-per­form and out-class the av­er­age Aus­tralian work ute.

“The Ser­vi­cepack builds on the NPR’s es­tab­lished rep­u­ta­tion, cre­at­ing a safe and re­li­able al­ter­na­tive to trades­peo­ple trans­port­ing un­safe loads on the back of their util­i­ties.”

The NPR 45/55-155 has a GVM of 5500kg, but is also avail­able de-rated to 4500kg so it can be driven on a car li­cence. Ad­di­tion­ally, Isuzu says when the com­pany was en­gi­neer­ing the NPS 75-155 4x4 Ser­vi­cepack and NPS 75-155 4x4 Crew Ser­vi­cepack, it knew it needed to pro­duce two of the tough­est it­er­a­tions of the Ser­vi­cepack to date.

The NPS 75-155 4x4 Ser­vi­cepack mod­els have a GVM of 7500kg and a 3500kg-rated tow­bar.

The 5.2-litre Isuzu 4HK1-TCN en­gine gen­er­ates 114kW @ 2600rpm and 419Nm @ 1600-2600rpm.
