Some of the big changes for the FX/FY for 2018 include:

  • Eight new variants in the FX range
  • Three new additions to the FY range
  • Standard fitment of sat-nav
  • New coolant temperature gauges
  • Relocated height sensors
  • Uprated alternator (to 90A)
  • Standardised tail lamp connectors/ABS connectors (across various models)

Commenting on the new variants, with a now wider array of transmission and wheelbase options, Isuzu Australia’s Chief Engineer, Product Strategy, Simon Humphries, says the updates come following customer feedback on the heavy-duty truck range.

“We were very conscious of the strengths of previous incarnations of the FX and FY ranges and we were looking to build on these characteristics.

“Isuzu has chosen to maintain the competitive power and torque ratings of the popular 6UZ1-TC engine, even when fitted with an Allison automatic, by selecting the higher capacity HD Series transmission.

“The result is superior performance, towing capacity and durability for Isuzu operators.”

All FX 4×2 and 6×2 models now feature a 38,000 kg GCM rating, regardless of transmission, while all FX 6×4 and FY 8×4 and 10×4 models have a standard GCM rating of 45,000kg.
