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 pounds, the NPR-XD bridges the gap between the NPR-HD, with its GVWR of 14,500 pounds, and the 17,950-pound GVWR NQR.

The new model was announced as part of the continuing celebration of the 30th anniversary of Isuzu trucks in the U.S. market. 

“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,” according 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-inch wheelbases and will provide a body/payload allowance ranging from 9,281to 9,490 pounds.
  • The NPR-XD crew cab will be available in 150- and 176-inch wheelbases and will provide a body/payload allowance ranging from 8,711 to 8,779 pounds.

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

Every NPR-XD will be powered by the Isuzu 4HK1-TC 5.2Lturbocharged diesel engine. Mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, the powerplant delivers 215 hp and 452 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,850 rpm. The engine carries a B10 durability of 310,000 miles — meaning that 90 percent of engines should reach that mileage before requiring an overhaul, according to the automaker.

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. The program includes: an initial ‘Dry Service’ at 4,000 miles, an ‘A Service’ beginning at 10,000 miles and continuing every 10,000 miles, and an inclusive ‘A/B Service’ at 50,000 miles. Maintenance services can be obtained at any of Isuzu’s dealerships in the U.S.
