Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, recently announced the addition of the NPR-XD to its N-Series diesel trucks line-up. The new truck, which advertises a gross vehicle weight rating of 16,000-lb., will bridges the gap between the NPR-HD,  14,500-pound GVWR, and the GVWR NQR, 17,950-pound GVWR.

“This new diesel model meets a number of vocational applications and requirements that previously might have required moving from an NPR-HD up to the NQR,” said Shaun Skinner, executive vice president and general manager of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, in a recent statement.

The NPR-XD standard cab will be available in 109-, 132.5-, 150-, and 176-inch wheelbases and will provide a body/payload allowance ranging from 9,281 to 9,490 pounds. While the NPR-XD crew cab will be available in 150- and 176-inch wheelbases and will provide a body/payload allowance ranging from 8,711 to 8,779 pounds.

Powering the NPR-XD will be the Isuzu 4HK1-TC 5.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, which will deliver 215 horsepower and 452 pounds-feet of torque at 1,850 rpm. The engine carries a B10 durability of 310,000 miles, which, according to the manufacturer, means that 90% of engines should reach that mileage before requiring an overhaul.

The NPR-XD is available for order now and will be at dealers at the end of August.
