ISUZU BEEFS UP SERVICEPACK
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.
