IsuzuFTR.DriverFront3-4_lights_MorganBodyIsuzu Commercial Truck of America unveiled the 2018 Isuzu FTR, a new entry in the class 6, medium-duty truck segment.

The F-Series truck is slated to go into production in the United States in mid-2017.

“This truck represents our vision of the future of the medium-duty truck industry,” said Shaun Skinner, executive vice president and general manager of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. “As the adult population grows and as people move to urban centers, there will be an increasing need for delivery trucks that can carry a lot of cargo but at the same time be fuel efficient, maneuverable, environmentally friendly and that offer a low cost of ownership. The all-new FTR achieves all of these goals.”

The FTR is powered by Isuzu’s 4HK1-TC 5.2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine, which offers a B10 durability of 310,000 miles.

The FTR features a low-cab-forward design that increases visibility and improves maneuverability, the company said. Interior amenities include a side under safety mirror, overhead console and a suspension driver’s seat with armrests designed to increase comfort and reduce driver fatigue.
