Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) recently delivered several brand new vehicles to fuel transport company AMRMR Trucking Corporation and to the Philippine Statistics Authority. Both groups received their vehicles via a turnover ceremony led by IPC President Hajime Koto.
AMRMR Trucking Corporation received its order of 6 units of the Isuzu CYZ51T trucks at their head office in La Union. These heavy-duty trucks were configured to become fuel tankers that will transport various petroleum products up north.
The CYZ51T trucks are powered by a 14.2L 6WF1-TCC diesel engine with electronically controlled common rail injection system. In addition, the C-Series trucks boasts a sturdy double-channel frame, a tapered multi-leaf suspension system, air conditioning, tilt telescopic power steering, air suspension seats, and full-coverage wipers.
Meanwhile, the government agency Philippine Statistics Authority acquired 81 units of the D-MAX LT pickup truck and 18 units of the Crosswind XL AUV at the Isuzu Pasig dealership. According to IPC, the vehicles, which will serve various functions for government personnel, are expected to be distributed to PSA offices nationwide.
The D-MAX is built to tackle rough terrain and the paved highways thanks to its robust ladder frame chassis, raised ride height of 235 mm, and its powerful 160 hp variable geometry turbocharger diesel engine. On the other hand, the Crosswind is known for its durability, as well as its versatile and roomy cabin capable of hauling up to 10 passengers.
Isuzu vehicles can be relied on to get the job done. We are sincerely grateful that consumers, whether in the private or public sector, can appreciate this capability,” Koso said.
As a review, a recent report by the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) states that the commercial vehicle (CV) segment rose by 33.1% in 2016. If this trend keeps up, we can expect more businesses come out and purchase even more CVs in the near future.
