When one comes across the word “Isuzu” what probably immediately comes to mind is diesel. And that true as the Japanese-based company specializes in the development, marketing and production of commercial and passenger vehicles with diesel engines.
But Isuzu not only sells vehicles but since their founding way back in 1934, their company has also sold diesel engines, engaged in the petroleum business and some of their subsidiaries also does vehicle telematics specifically with their Mimamori-kun Online commercial vehicles tracking operations.
Here in the Philippines, Isuzu vehicles are sold by the Isuzu Philippines Corporation or IPC which was founded in 1995 with the help of a four-way merger with the Rizal Commercial Banking Corp, Ayala Corp, and Mitsubishi Corp.
In the present day, IPC is favored by Filipino motorists and business owners due to their very reliable, and impressively durable diesel engines which in some cases have even outlasted their owners.
It is also of note that most examples of Filipino Jeepney PUV actually use Isuzu engines especially from their B series which were used in Isuzu Elf light trucks.
