Isuzu announces NPR-XD diesel truck

As part of the continuing celebration of its 30th anniversary of trucks in the U.S. market, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc. introduced the latest addition to its wide range of N-Series diesel trucks, the NPR-XD. With a gross vehicle weight rating of 16,000-lbs., the NPR-XD bridges the gap between the NPR-HD, with its GVWR of 14,500-lbs., and the 17,950-lb. GVWR NQR, said the manufacturer.

“This new diesel model meets a number of vocational applications and requirements that previously might have required moving from an NPR-HD up to the NQR,” said to Shaun Skinner, executive vice president and general manager of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “Now, the NPR-XD offers more payload capacity at an even more competitive price.”

The NPR-XD will be offered in the same cab configurations and wheelbases as the NPR-HD: The NPR-XD standard cab will be available in 109, 132.5, 150 and 176 in. wheelbases and will provide a body/payload allowance ranging from 9,281 to 9,490 lbs. The NPR-XD crew cab will be available in 150 and 176 in. wheelbases and will provide a body/payload allowance ranging from 8,711 to 8,779 lbs.

All NPR-XDs will offer 19.5-in. wheels, 225/70R-19.5F 12-ply low rolling resistance tires, a front gross axle weight rating of 6,630 lbs. and a rear GAWR of 11,020 lbs.

Every NPR-XD will be powered by the Isuzu 4HK1-TC 5.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine. Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, the engine delivers 215 HP and 452 lbs.-ft. of torque at 1,850 RPM. The engine carries a B10 durability of 310,000 miles.

The NPR-XD is also covered by the Isuzu 24 months/60,000 miles covered maintenance program, which has been extended until Dec. 31, 2014.
