Isuzu FTR

Spacious, Flexible, Comfortable.

The FTR is truly a game-changer that raises the standard for Class 6 medium duty trucks. This truck’s low-cab-forward design gives it fantastic maneuverability and visibility along with the ability to carry more cargo than a conventional Class 6 GVWR truck at the same wheelbase. Its four-cylinder diesel engine is environmentally friendly and gives the truck outstanding fuel efficiency.

A class-leading warranty provides its owners with peace of mind. And it’s an Isuzu truck, a name that is synonymous with dependability, durability and low cost of ownership.

The FTR is powered by the renowned and durable Isuzu 5.2-liter 4HK1-TC turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine. The FTR can achieve an incredible operating distance, thanks not only to the truck’s conservative use of fuel, but also to its standard aluminum 50 or 100-gallon fuel tank (based on wheelbase).

The 4HK1-TC engine goes beyond environmental friendliness and economy—it’s also durable. This engine carries a B-10 durability rating of 375,000 miles—meaning that 90% of engines should reach that mileage before requiring an overhaul.

The FTR’s 5.2-liter 4HK1-TC turbocharged engine generates 520 lbs.-ft. of torque at 1,600 rpm and 215 horsepower at 2,500 rpm
