Isuzu launches new workhorse

2004-11-24 09:04

The Isuzu KB 200i long wheelbase single cab pick-up is unique to South Africa and results from an engineering and development partnership between General Motors South Africa, Isuzu, and Holden in Australia.

"A significant engineering element of the 5th Generation KB project for South Africa was the development of a unique 2-litre petrol derivative for our local market," says Malcolm Gauld," GMSA's sales and marketing director.

GMSA believes that this 2-litre Isuzu will be popular amongst fleet owners as a workhorse delivery vehicle.

The 4-cylinder HEC 2.0 single overhead camshaft engine has multi-point fuel injection.

Maximum power is 88 kW at 5 400 r/min and torque peaks at 174 Nm at 3 200 r/min.

More than 70% of that torque is available from a 1 200 r/min through to 6 000r/min.
