Isuzu Travis is offered as a durable, lightweight truck with excellent fuel efficiency, massive cargo capacity, and modern aerodynamic cab design.
In the Philippines, the Isuzu Traviz is designed to support businesses through the urban crawl or the long haul. It is also intended to compete with the L300 from Mitsubishi. Isuzu Philippines offers this workhorse in two variants: The S and L.
The Isuzu Traviz is an entry-level light commercial vehicle from the Japanese carmaker. It was launched in November 2019. This light-duty commercial vehicle embodies the Isuzu tradition of creating and providing reliable products and budget-friendly business solutions.
There are several body configurations for the Isuzu Travis, including utility, cab and chassis, refrigerated vans, aluminum, and dropside truck. This vehicle can haul 1.6 tons of payload capacity. Providing power to this workhorse is the 2.5L Direct Injection Common Rail Blue Power diesel power plant that is Euro 4-rated. It is paired with a five-speed manual transmission. Isuzu Travis uses the same power plant that was once used as the engine of the Isuzu's popular AUV, the Isuzu Crosswind.
Buyers and users of Isuzu Traviz have the option to choose which body type depending on the requirement like refrigerated van, aluminum van, and dropside truck. The vehicle does not feature a power-adjustable rearview mirror, so users need to adjust it manually. The cab's design is simple but aerodynamic, which is useful in providing fuel efficiency. The grille with toothed design adds ruggedness to the front end of the vehicle.
The Isuzu Travis is ready to take any business, whether on rough dirt roads, narrow city, market alleys, and narrow city streets. Thanks to its compact body build and modern design, it is very flexible, which is an incredibly good selling point.
Since the Isuzu Travis is a commercial vehicle, you can expect that the inside is bare. Still, this light-duty commercial vehicle is equipped with 1DIN stereo and manual climate controls. It only comes with a fabric seat material. The engine lies under the cabin, which is why the driver's seat can only be slid back and forward. The passenger's seat has limited adjustments, bolted into position, and upright.
The color of the interior comes in gray, which extends to the vehicle's door sidings. It features a spacious cabin that can accommodate three occupants (the driver included) with ample legroom. The entire cabin exudes practicality with several cubby holes and broad enough front windshield that provides excellent visibility.
