Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc., distributor of Americas best-selling low-cab-forward trucks widely uses for furniture delivery, announced that production has begun of the U.S. markets first and only low-cab-forward medium-duty diesel engines to meet the newest and strictest emissions standards.

2011 Isuzu N-Series trucks equipped with the clean, powerful and economical new powerplants have already began to roll off the line at Isuzu Motors Limiteds factory in Fujisawa, Japan and will begin arriving in U.S. dealerships in early August 2010.

Isuzu is a world leader in clean diesel technology, said Shaun Skinner, executive vice president and general manager of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. So its no surprise that Isuzu trucks would be the first in their class to meet these new regulations. 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.

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 to meet three exacting and stringent requirements:

Compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys 2010 emissions standards (EPA 2010), which require reductions in NOx
