Isuzu NPR GAS REG Models and NPR GAS REG History
Japanese auto manufacturer Isuzu entered the United States market in 1984 with a lineup that included a medium-duty truck. The N-Series line has been a staple for Isuzu in North America where several iterations have commonly been upfitted as a cube van or flatbed moving vehicle. Since 1994, a gasoline-engined line of the NPR has been part of the Isuzu North American product selection that is manufactured in the United States. The regular cab gasoline model of the Isuzu NPR functions as the entry-level product for a larger range of trucks with wheelbase lengths ranging from 109 inches to 176 inches. Propelled by a General Motors design L96 engine since the 2012 model year, the 6.0-liter Vortec V-8 powerplant generates 297 horsepower and 372 pound-feet of torque linked to a six-speed automatic transmission. Alternative fuel capability is also available with the Vortec engine allowing for Compressed Natural Gas or Liquified Propane. A simple, ergonomic cabin space employed on the Isuzu NPR regular cab utilizes an exclusive Hexapod design. Meant to maximize comfort and productivity for the operator, the Hexapod design combines with standard interior equipment such as a tilt and telescoping steering column.
