Isuzu releases traypack package on NLR model

Isuzu says specifying the right vehicle for a job is a critical challenge faced by any trade business, whether it’s a larger fleet-based operation or an owner-driver scenario.

Isuzu says from potential losses in productivity and profitability, to excessive fuel use and cost, research suggests applying the right vehicle to the application at hand can save you thousands over the life span of a truck.

Isuzu Trucks’ recently released, Future of Trucking Report, confirms that operators are increasingly finding new, pre-built, fuel efficient trucks meet the needs of their businesses, boosting productivity and profitability. In fact, 65 per cent of Aussie businesses surveyed as part of the research expressed a strong preference for pre-bodied, turn-key truck solutions.

Heeding the call again in 2021, Isuzu Trucks is back with its popular Ready-to-Work, Traypack sales campaign beginning April 1.

Robust versatility

Leading the charge, is the NLR 45-150 Traypack short wheelbase model with Isuzu’s automated manual transmission (AMT).

The Isuzu NLR 45-150 SWB Traypack features a gross vehicle mass of 4,500 kg and a gross combination mass of 8,000 kg, as well as 110 kW of power @ 2,800 rpm and 375 Nm of torque @ 1,600 rpm–2,800 rpm.

Fitted with Isuzu’s 4-cylinder, 16-valve 4JJ1-TCS engine and powering a compact N Series platform, Isuzu says the NLR 45-150 SWB Traypack delivers both muscle and manoeuvrability to comfortably navigate tight metro streets and rugged regional terrain.

The Isuzu comes pre-built with a heavy-duty aluminium tray, integrated load restraint anchor points and removable drop sides and rear tailgate.

Isuzu says that from a city-based plumber hauling wet tools and towing a skid-steer, to a craft brewery carting kegs of amber ale, the Traypack delivers on not only application adaptability, but the type of truck durability expected of Australia’s leading brand.Isuzu NLR (3 of 3).jpg

Body beautiful

With the factory-backed 3.15-metre tray, the NLR Traypack is ready to take on those larger, awkwardly-sized payloads that your typical van or ute struggle with and being pre-built, you can drive the truck out of your dealer’s lot, and straight on to your next job, with the appropriate insurance arrangements in place of course.

With the added ability for this truck to be driven on a standard car licence, as well as the ready-to-work, turnkey nature of the NLR Traypack, Isuzu says the argument for this solution is strong, whichever trade or industry you’re in.

Big sky thinking

Isuzu Australia Limited national sales manager, Les Spaltman, welcomed back the return of Isuzu’s Ready-to-Work Traypack campaign, urging Aussie tradies to think outside the box.

“We know the immediate, pre-bodied, factory-backed nature of this range translates to convenience, efficiency and productivity for Aussie trades, “says Spaltman.

“Tradespeople of all persuasions needn’t look further. Our Ready-to-Work range covers just about every end-use, with truck-tough durability, fuel efficiency, robust towing capacity and that all important payload.”
