Production Begins on Isuzu’s EPA 2010 Engines For LCF Medium Duty

Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc. has announced that production has begun on what it calls “the U.S. market’s first and only low-cab-forward medium-duty diesel engines to meet the newest and strictest emissions standards.” The engines are EPA 2010 and CARB HD-OBD compliant as well as Clean-Idle certified.

The company said Isuzu N-Series 2011-model trucks equipped with the new powerplants have already began to roll off the line at Isuzu Motors Limited’s factory in Fujisawa, Japan and will begin arriving in U.S. dealerships in early August.

“Isuzu is a world leader in clean diesel technology,” said Skinner. “So it’s no surprise that Isuzu trucks would be the first in their class to meet these new regulations. The great news for our customers is that these engines are not only environmentally friendly, they are also more powerful and more fuel efficient than the engines they replace.”

According to Shaun Skinner, executive vp & gm of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America., the new Isuzu N-Series trucks are the first medium-duty low-cab-forward trucks on the market to offer Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) injection to meet three exacting and stringent requirements:

  • Compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2010 emissions standards (EPA 2010), which require reductions in NOx
  • Compliance with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) HD-OBD requirement that trucks over 14,001 lbs. GVWR employ on-board diagnostics equipment to monitor and verify NOx and particulates emissions levels
  • Clean-idle certified

“Isuzu is a world leader in clean diesel technology,” said Skinner. “So it’s no surprise that Isuzu trucks would be the first in their class to meet these new regulations. The great news for our customers is that these engines are not only environmentally friendly, they are also more powerful and more fuel efficient than the engines they replace.”
