Isuzu is upgrading its light-duty NLR 55-150 models with a brand-new NMR 60/45-150 N Series range.

Responding to what the Japanese maker says is "an increasing demand for a light-duty, narrow cab, cab-chassis truck models with increased payload capacity and ease of driving", the new model adds an additional 500kg payload and the availability of a two-pedal option to the model it replaces, the NLR 55-150.

The NMR model is available in 4,500kg and 6,000kg gross vehicle mass (GVM) ratings.

The former is car licence compatible "enabling businesses to utilise a range of driving abilities", Isuzu says.

"Operators will also enjoy additional payload capacity with the 6,000 kg GVM NMR variant, adding a 500kg payload up-tick on Isuzu’s popular NLR 55-150 model."

The NMR is powered by the Isuzu 4JJ1-TCS diesel engine rated at 110kW/2,800rpm and 375Nm/1,600–2,800 rpm.

It is available in both short (2,490mm) and medium (3,360mm) wheelbase formats and offered with Isuzu’s torque converter–automated manual transmission (TC-AMT).


"Long renowned for its excellent driver visibility and safety, Isuzu’s narrow cabin design delivers again on the NMR format, offering exceptional ergonomics, class-leading frontal and sideways driver visibility, as well as the driver comfort features and safety features operators expect from Isuzu," the company says.

"Like all other 4×2 configuration Isuzu N Series models sold in Australia, the new NMR 60/45-150 range features standard driver and passenger side airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners, ECE-R29 compliant cab, electric and heated mirrors, front cornering lamps, four-wheel disc brakes with Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Isuzu Electronic Stability Control (IESC) and anti-skid regulator (ASR)."

Also included is independent front suspension (IFS) with coil springs.

"Driver fatigue, road shock and body-roll are all proven to be significantly reduced with the addition of IFS, a trait often sought after by ute drivers looking to upgrade."

The NMR 60/45-150 is available from June 2020 across the Isuzu Trucks dealer network.
