Isuzu Commercial Truck of America announced that it will launch two new Class 5 gasoline trucks next year. The two trucks are: the NQR Gas (with a target GVWR of 17,950 lbs.) and the NRR Gas (with a target GVWR of 19,500 lbs.). Both will be powered by a General Motors 6.0-liter Vortec V8 supplied by PSI and will be mated to an Allison 1000 RDS transmission with PTO gear.

Production for both is expected to begin in mid-2020.

Mobileye advanced driver-assistance features

In addition to the Class 5 gasoline trucks, Isuzu announced that beginning in May, all Isuzu N-Series and F-Series trucks will be available with a suite of Mobileye advanced driver-assistance features. The package includes:

  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Pedestrian Collision Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Headway Monitoring Warning

Active at any speed, Forward Collision Warning alerts drivers of an imminent rear-end collision with a car, truck or motorcycle up to 2.7 seconds in advance.

Pedestrian Collision Warning notifies the driver of a pedestrian or cyclist in the danger zone, and alerts the driver of an imminent collision. Operational during daylight hours only, this feature is active at speeds under 31 miles per hour.

Lane Departure Warning monitors lane markings and alerts drivers with visual and audible warnings when a lane deviation occurs without proper signal activation. The system employs both a left- and right-lane warning icon and is active over 34 miles per hour.

Headway Monitoring Warning helps drivers maintain a safe following distance from the vehicle ahead, providing visual and audible alerts if the distance becomes unsafe. Active at speeds above 19 miles per hour, the system displays the amount of time, in seconds, to the vehicle ahead. When the time becomes 2.5 seconds or less, and is no longer considered safe, an alert is provided.
