Isuzu, the market leading truck brand in New Zealand, has announced the impending arrival of a new model that will expand its successful CYZ tipper range.
The new addition is a 530 6x4 tipper and is the first Isuzu model that places the brand in the 500-plus horsepower segment of the market.
“This part of the market is currently shared between the US and European brands, so it’s fantastic we now have an offering in this segment available for loyal Isuzu customers,” said the national sales manager of Isuzu New Zealand, Dave Ballantyne.
“The new model can’t come soon enough, as there is demand for new Isuzu product as the market for bulk tippers is very strong, driven by the growth in infrastructure work around the country.”
The arrival of the new 6x4 means Isuzu is the only Japanese marque in the 500hp-plus segment. The new model feature Magnetic Driveline Retarder, alloy wheels, heavy-duty front axle and Isuzu’s renowned low cost of ownership and all-round durability.
“Pricing for the new model will be announced closer to arrival in New Zealand, which is anticipated to be Q1 of 2018,” said Ballantyne.
“In the meantime, I’d strongly encourage anyone interested in this and other Isuzu product to get in touch with their nearest authorised Isuzu dealer to arrange a viewing opportunity.”
