Isuzu hails Vanpack delivery challenge
Vanpack comes ready to roll

 

After an airing at the recent Brisbane Truck Show, Isuzu has spruiked the attractions of its Vanpack work-ready offering.

Part of its its ‘Ready to Work’ contingent, the NNR 45-150 AMT Vanpack boasts a gross vehicle mass (GVM) of 4,500 kg and an Isuzu 4JJ1-TCS engine capable of producing 110 kW at 2,800 rpm and 375 Nm at 1,600- 2,800 rpm.

Isuzu says Vanpack has lobbed in response to feedback from Australian businesses, "specifically engineering the truck to suit drivers transporting goods in urban environments".

"As logistics increasingly demands shipments delivered to customer’s doors, the NNR 45-150 AMT Vanpack means operators won’t have to compromise when they’re looking for a vehicle that can carry a lot but is nimble enough to navigate narrow, metropolitan streets," IAL chief engineer, product strategy, Simon Humphries says.

The vehicle comes with an Australian designed and assembled 18.5 cubic metre body, with four mounting points per side, double rear barn doors, rear grab handles and non-slip rear steps.

"We also expect the appeal of being able to put the Vanpack to work as soon as it’s driven out of the showroom – with the correct registration and insurance – won’t be lost on savvy business owners looking to get the most out of their equipment," Humphries says.

"The pre-bodied Vanpack also comes with an OEM body label, so owners won’t have to worry about the hassle and expense of getting a modification plate for it."

The overall height allows the Vanpack to drive under bridges and other overhead structures with 3 m or higher clearance restrictions.

And should the owner wish to fit a rear electro-hydraulic tailgate loader, the body is specified for easy fitment.

From the driver’s seat, he Vanpack features Isuzu’s MYY-6E 6-speed automated manual transmission with torque converter and park position, and includes a reversing camera, a Digital Audio Visual Equipment (DAVE) unit and Sat Nav as standard, as well as its safety features such as Isuzu’s Electronic Stability Control System (IESC), Anti-Skid Regulator (ASR or Traction Control) and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).
