TowTimes.com - Isuzu Announces New 2022 F-Series Class 6 and 7


Recommended Posts

Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc. has announced that the Cummins B6.7 diesel engine will now be featured in the new 2022 Isuzu F-Series trucks for the U.S. and Canadian markets.  This is the first product to come to market globally from the Isuzu Cummins Powertrain Partnership (ICPP) between Isuzu Motors Limited and Cummins Inc. that was formed in 2019.

“The addition of the Cummins B6.7 diesel engine is one of many exciting developments for the Isuzu F-Series truck. Moving forward we believe the Cummins B6.7 will create broader appeal and will open up new sales opportunities for our dealer network,” said Shaun Skinner, President of Isuzu Commercial Truck of America and Isuzu Commercial Truck of Canada. The 2022 F-Series will now be available in two models – the Class 6 FTR (25,950 – GVWR) and the Class 7 FVR (33,000 – GVWR). Additionally, the line-up will include a de-rated Class 6 FVR. A total of eight wheelbases will be available for the FTR and FVR models. The low cab forward’s larger cab-to-axle (CA) space provides the Isuzu F-Series more cargo capacity versus conventional cab competitors with a comparable wheelbase. This gives customers more versatility with their body application choices to accommodate heavier or more spacious cargo loads.

As with all Isuzu low cab forward trucks, the FTR and FVR will have enhanced maneuverability, visibility and comfort. Drivers will appreciate the 50-degree inner wheel cut that gives the Isuzu F-Series class-leading turning diameters between 43.7-ft (152-inch WB) and 65-ft. (248-inch WB). Great visibility is made possible by Isuzu’s low cab forward-designed cab and new LED headlamps. The new interior design has dual-tone trim and seating that enhances its visual appeal while adding to passenger comfort.

The Cummins B6.7 is mated to an automatic six-speed Allison® RDS Transmission (2500 Series). With 260-hp and 660-lb.-ft of torque, this is the highest horsepower and torque available from the Cummins B6.7.

“The Cummins B6.7 has a legacy that goes back almost 40 years, so we’re excited to see it in the Isuzu F-Series,” said Rob Neitzke, Executive Director of Cummins On-Highway OEM Business. “It gives Class 6 and 7 truck buyers in the U.S. and Canadian markets new ways to experience the B6.7, with configurations that don’t exist today.”
