The Isuzu ‘FORWARD’ N55.150 Euro VI 5.5t GVW 4x2 rigid is compact and versatile and can have the same 3-man compact narrow cab as Isuzu offers on its 3.5t range. Alternatively it can have the same spacious and well equipped 3-man wide cab as found on the 6.5 and 7.5 tonne models. Both models share the same engine and driveline. Isuzu’s Euro VI 3.0 litre 150 PS engine is matched to a 5 - speed synchromesh overdrive gearbox. Whether you choose a narrow or wide cab, this compact truck is ideal for operations requiring more carrying capacity than 3.5 tonners without having the large physical footprint as perhaps a 7.5 tonner. Finally, all Isuzu’s 5.5 tonners have a designed gross train weight of 9000kgs, meaning they can tow a trailer and load not exceeding 3500kgs.
In between Isuzu’s 5500kgs and 7500kgs GVW products, Isuzu also produces a vehicle with a GVW of 6500kgs - the ‘FORWARD’ N65.150 Euro VI 6.5t GVW 4x2 rigid. From car transporters and recovery vehicles to home delivery and utilitarian operations, Isuzu’s 6.5 tonne model is a great all-rounder. It has exactly the same cab as the 7.5 tonner and the same driveline as the Isuzu ‘URBAN’ - Euro VI, 3.0 litre 150 PS engine with an option of Isuzu’s Easyshift or manual gearboxes. Its innovative low cab forward control design ensures maximum load capacity and excellent manoeuvrability. In addition this vehicle is engineered to legally tow up to 3500kgs and has a designed gross train weight of 10000kgs.
