Isuzu Commercial Truck of America has begun production of its 2011 Isuzu N-Series trucks, equipped with low-cab-forward medium-duty diesel engines to meet 2010 emissions standards.
According to the company, N-Series trucks are already rolling off the assembly line at Isuzu Motors Limited's factory in Fujisawa, Japan, and will hit U.S. dealerships in early August 2010.

"The great news for our customers is that these engines are not only environmentally friendly, they are also more powerful and more fuel efficient than the engines they replace," said Shaun Skinner, executive vice president and general manager of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America.

Isuzu claims the new Isuzu N-Series trucks are the first medium-duty low-cab-forward trucks on the market to offer selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology with diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) injection. The engines meet EPA 2010 standards, California Air Resources Board standards, and are clean-idle certified.
