Isuzu F-Se­ries gets Al­li­son auto

Motor Equipment News - - DIESEL INDUSTRY NEWS -

Isuzu trucks has re­ceived its first ship­ment of fully au­to­matic F Se­ries (10,400-23,000kg GVM) mod­els.

The F-Se­ries range of Isuzu trucks has been the num­ber one sell­ing brand in New Zealand since 2010 and year to date this model now lies firmly in the top spot with a 34.4 per­cent mar­ket share through April 2015.

Isuzu sales and mar­ket­ing manager Michael Doeg said that th­ese new mod­els com­ple­ment Isuzu’s strat­egy per­fectly.

“We lis­ten to what our cus­tomers want and we are happy to be able to of­fer the best spec­i­fi­ca­tion op­tions pos­si­ble, what­ever their ap­pli­ca­tion might be,” he said. “While we have a tail­wind it is im­por­tant to con­duct a health check to see where we can im­prove, and with our cus­tomers help we can set a plat­form for even bet­ter re­sults.”

De­spite the mar­ket grow­ing al­beit at a slower pace Isuzu trucks con­tin­ues to buck the trend and in­crease both share and vol­ume. “Isuzu light trucks have grown in both vol­ume and share, medium trucks have grown sig­nif­i­cantly in vol­ume and share, and Isuzu heavy trucks have lifted in both vol­ume and share, giv­ing Isuzu an in­creased foot­print in the mar­ket.

“To en­sure that the F-Se­ries stays at num­ber one, Isuzu NZ has been re­view­ing the mar­ket and we be­lieve that for some ap­pli­ca­tions the Al­li­son Auto 2500 Se­ries is a great trans­mis­sion to com­ple­ment both man­ual and au­to­mated man­ual (AMT) op­tions.”

The fol­low­ing Al­li­son Auto trucks have now been added to the Isuzu medium truck line-up, some have al­ready landed: • FRR600 Auto – 11,000kg GVM/

240hp/ 4x2/ steel sus­pen­sion • FRD600 Auto – 11,000kg GVM/
