2018 Isuzu Truck Fest

Isuzu, seated as the number 1 truck brand in the Philippines, shows off its latest lineup of light- to heavy-duty trucks at this year's Truck Fest. Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) has unveiled the Blue Power N, F, C, and E-Series trucks, while highlighting the perks of choosing the Isuzu brand. 

We've all heard about Blue Power for the first time last year, when Isuzu rolled out the mu-X and D-Max with an eco-friendlier Euro 4 diesel engine, dubbed as the Blue Power.

“Our company has been the consistent No. 1 truck brand in the country for 18 years. Isuzu globally is known for its durable and dependable trucks that can withstand the challenging business operations, but what is more important is the support that we provide to our clients along with every purchase – and this is the Isuzu Advantage.”

Before launching the vehicles, Isuzu highlighted its different customer support programs it offers. The Isuzu Advantage is now available in more than 40 dealer outlets in the country. In addition, a 6,000 sqm warehouse facility was built in aims to make their parts available nationwide. Part of the presentation was Isuzu's Mobile Medic, which can repair trucks at the comfort of the customer's garage, or anywhere on the road. 

Seen in the event is the N-Series light truck that was showcased in seven different bodies. This series is composed of the NLR87 and NLR85 4-wheel trucks, as well as the NMR85, NPR85, and NQR75 6-wheel machines. There are 2 engines available in the series. The 5.2-liter 4HK1-TCN engine powers the NQR75, while a smaller 3.0-liter 4JJ1-TCC and 4JH1-TC powers the rest of the lineup.
