The new AMT-equipped NPS is set to battle against rivals from Iveco, Fuso and Hino, all of which only offer 4×4 trucks with a manual transmission.

Isuzu telling us the AMT has been specifically tuned for off-road applications, while the vehicle will also come with application specific Bridgestone tyres.

Isuzu’s Chief Engineer Simon Humphries has told heavyvehicles.com.au that the new offering has been put through its paces before hitting the market.

“We invested the time and resources into taking a literal ground-up approach to developing a superior product for all operators looking for a 4×4 light truck that was easier than ever to drive.

“At every stage in its development, we’ve considered how the AMT NPS can most effectively cater to more operators looking to get behind the wheel of a no-nonsense 4×4 light truck.”

The new Isuzu NPS 75/45-155 4×4 AMT will boast a GVM up to 7,500kg, but de-rated versions will also be available for those wanting to operate on a car license.

While Isuzu is expecting a positive response to the new AMT version from operators such as fire brigades.
