The road ahead.
Isuzu trucks have always been renowned for their reliability. Now with the updated N Series, an intelligent system of safety features means that, more than ever before, you can rely on Isuzu trucks to protect you and other road users. Standard features on 4x2 models include autonomous emergency braking that can recognise pedestrians, a lane departure warning that sounds if the truck starts to drift, and a distance warning system to alert the driver if they’re getting too close to the vehicle in front. All this means Australia’s number one light truck is an even smarter choice.
Watch them in action.
In each of our 4x2 N Series trucks, there’s a stereo safety camera mounted unobtrusively on the dashboard. Using two lenses means that these cameras “see” the road much like a set of human eyes, precisely detecting and measuring the size, distance, and velocity of other vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists.
Advanced Emergency Braking
If the driver fails to brake in the case of a pedestrian, cyclist or other vehicle appearing unexpectedly, the AEB system brakes automatically to avoid a collision. The brake light will be illuminated during this process.
Distance Warning System
DWS helps you maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead by giving a warning if a pre-set distance is reached. (You can choose from four pre-set minimum distances). A very handy touch in urban traffic conditions.
Traffic Movement Warning
The Traffic Movement Warning system monitors stationary vehicles in front of your truck. If the vehicle immediately ahead moves more than set distance and you don’t follow along, a warning sounds. A very handy touch at traffic lights and pedestrian crossings.
Electronic Stability Control
ESC uses data from a number of sensors, to monitor driver input and vehicle control. If it detects understeer, oversteer or roll-over, ESC can override driver input, reduce power and/or apply individual wheel braking and assist the driver to maintain vehicle control.
Lane Departure Warning
LDW detects lane markings or road edges and if the driver wanders out of their lane, it sounds a warning. Driver can select two sensitivity settings, or switch OFF.
ABS determines if a wheel is locked and not turning. It then releases the locked wheel brake and reapplies pressure to reduce locking and maintain control, allowing the driver to effectively steer and brake at same time.
ASR detects when either rear wheel is spinning faster than the other on a loose surface, then reduces torque and/or applies the spinning wheel’s brake to improve traction.
HSA is included on trucks with manual transmissions. When the brake pedal is applied on a hill, the brake pressure is maintained until the clutch is released (or eight minutes) so that the truck won’t roll backwards when starting.
ALS monitors exterior light levels and automatically turns on the headlights and tail-lights if needed.
If the cab tilt is not fully locked, the CTW sounds an alarm and flashes an alert light on the multi-information display.
By measuring the vehicle speed signal and the engine speed, the CSL controls the fuel injection volume to the engine so that the truck can’t exceed a pre-set speed.
Turning into laneways and driveways, as you know, can be tricky. Especially at night. That’s when our clever cornering lamps come into play. Turning on your indicators turns them on as well, while your headlights still aim forwards.
In the event of a collision, the Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) will determine if the incident is above certain intensity, airbags are deployed in a split second to cushion the cabin occupants and help reduce any injuries.
If it senses sharp braking that indicates an accident, the Seatbelt Pre-tensioner automatically tensions the seatbelt to pull the occupant back into the seat and reduce the chance of injuries.
A certification based on a United Nations global test, the ECE-R29 cabin rating means that the truck’s cab has been designed to withstand excessive deforming in case of an incident. This rating isn’t currently mandatory in Australia, but cabins that are ECE-R29 rated generally offer superior occupant protection.
Additional reinforcement installed into the door structure, Anti-Intrusion Bars protect cabin occupants in case of an incident.
Safety baked in.
All N Series cabs are built to the latest world-class ECE-R29 safety standard. Double side-intrusion bars, seatbelt pre-tensioners and SRS dual airbags can protect you in an accident. ABS brakes, ASR (Anti-Skid Regulator) and traction control can help you avoid one. Isuzu Electronic Stability Control (IESC) is also available on certain models.
Multimedia at your fingertips.
Stay safe and connected with our Isuzu Multimedia System. Its big 6.2” display and intuitive menu means you keep your focus on the road. It connects to your mobile to read out your messages. It includes voice-control and hands-free Bluetooth as standard. It comes sat-nav ready with optional tyre-pressure monitoring*.
More power, fewer pedals.
Manual or auto? Get the best of both with Automated Manual Transmission (AMT). The ease of an auto, the durability and control of a manual. No clutch pedal needed. Isuzu AMT is calibrated for Australian conditions. When coupled with our 150PS engines, it comes with a torque converter for quicker acceleration and smoother ride.
Reinventing the wheel
The longer your day, the more you’ll appreciate ergonomics. Take the steering wheel, for instance. It tilts and telescopes at a touch, so you’ll readily arrive at a driving position that’s still comfortable at the end of a long shift. And that’s just one of Isuzu’s clever comforting touches.
4,500-6,500kg GVM (Narrow Cab)
The N Series range starts here – and it’s already a step ahead. It gets independent front suspension, front/rear disc brakes, SRS dual airbags and cruise control – all as standard. Entry-level trucks have never been more top-of-the-line.
The long and short of it.
With short, medium and long wheelbase models, the N Series is a light truck that goes to any length to suit your needs.
Get the right gear.
The N Series is with available with manual, Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) or Automated Manual Transmission with Torque Converter (TC-AMT). All designed and tested for medium duty trucks. That's more choice than you can shake a gear stick at.
Power to spare.
When it comes to pulling power, business relies on diesel engines. The N Series has three Isuzu common rail intercooled turbo-diesel options. Our 110kW (150PS) power plant delivers 375Nm of torque while our 140kW (190PS) one punches out 513Nm.
“The Isuzus stand out from the pack so, really, it was an obvious choice in the end. They’ve got the best resale value too, which is important in the long term. I mean, I’m planning to have this truck for the next ten years.”
