Now, the Japanese automaker is innovating its commercial vehicle (CV) lineup with the introduction of the N-Series Smoother. This truck model is the first light-duty truck of Isuzu to utilize its Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) technology.

“Being the number 1 truck brand in the country, Isuzu’s success comes from working closely with our customers, assessing their every need, and coming up with the best business solutions in every step of the way,” said IPC President Hajime Koso.

IPC said that the AMT offers performance and fuel efficiency one can get from a manual transmission while providing the on-road convenience of an automatic gearbox. It is designed without the use of a clutch pedal and automatic shifting is achieved by computer control. Drivers will be maneuvering the truck on a 2-pedal operation.

Isuzu promises three advantages in owning the N-Series Smoother. The first one is its easy operation thanks to its 2-pedal system of the AMT. Next up is economical advantages which are delivered by the automatic shifting of transmission depending on the best gear position. Lastly, the N-Series Smoother offers a safer drive as those behind the wheel won’t have to worry about the clutch and can instead focus on the road.

“And with the increasing demand for delivery, especially in logistics, truckers deal not just with the increase in their operation expenses, particularly fuel and maintenance, but also the need for more professional drivers which has become quite a problem. So, we thought, why not make our next truck address all these challenges and more,” added Koso.
