Safety boost of Isuzu N Series
Posted: 25-Nov-2021 |

An extended warranty and a range of safety enhancements headline the changes now appearing within the Isuzu N Series light-duty truck range.

 Most of the models in the updated N Series line-up will benefit from a new suite of safety technology and an additional warranty that runs to five years/250,000km under the proviso the vehicle is serviced at an authorised Isuzu dealer. 

All models have a 36 month/100,000km warranty. The additional 24 months/150,000km apply to the Model Year 21 NMR, NPR and NQR models (both cab/chassis and tipper) but not to the 4x4 NPS and base model NLR versions.

The new ADAS (Advanced Driver Assist System) package is also being introduced for the NMR, NPR and NQR models. It includes Electronic Vehicle Stability Control (EVSC), Advance Emergency Brake system (AEBS), Distance Warning System (DWS), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) and Hill Start Assist.

It’s enabled by a dash-mounted Dual Optical Sensor Camera. Located low on the dash to minimise obstruction of the driver’s view, the camera is tuned to operate in urban conditions with a wide field of vision and capability of detecting three-dimensional objects at close range.

The enhancements are rounded out with the introduction of a new interior colour and updated headlights complete with LED low-beam lights, which deliver a wider, brighter and deeper beam compared with halogen lights.

“Isuzu N Series trucks have a reputation for offering an impressive combination of clean yet powerful fuel-efficient engines, along with intelligent design, delivering a comprehensive package for operators,” say Dave Ballantyne, general manager of Isuzu Trucks New Zealand.

“This new N Series range builds on the model’s impressive heritage with updates firmly focused on safety.  These enhancements stand the new model in good stead and for which drivers will be thankful for if and when required.

“The new N Series is loaded with features, there is a model to suit any number of applications with various engines, transmissions and wheelbases - plus the availability of Narrow, Standard and Crew versions to cater for different requirements,” says Mr Ballantyne.
