Isuzu’s New Class 6 & 7 F-Series Models Are Coming to Bellamy Strickland
Isuzu’s bold, new Class 6 and 7 trucks have been redesigned with customers in mind, giving buyers the many benefits of a low cab forward design coupled with the power and durability of a Cummins B6.7 Diesel Engine.
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). The line-up also will include a de-rated Class 6 FVR. A total of eight wheelbases will be available for the FTR and FVR models.
· Class 6 FTR: 25,900-lb GVWR, 19,000-lb rear GAWR
· Class 6 FVR (de-rated): 25,950-lb GVWR, 21,000-lb rear GAWR
· Class 7 FVR: 33,000-lb GVWR, 21,000-lb rear GAWR
The B6.7L is the most popular engine ever built by Cummins — and rightfully so, it’s been tested and proven with more than 13 million engines produced over nearly 40-years with billions of miles driven.
The B6.7L is a 6-cylinder diesel engine that outputs 260-hp and 660 lb.-ft. of torque. It is the highest horsepower and torque offering from the Cummins B6.7L. This power and torque combination will easily move heavier payloads through urban environments and on the highway.
The Allison Rugged Duty Series Transmission was built for the medium-duty market. It’s proven durability and reliability provide greater uptime with a lower cost of operation.
Isuzu prides itself on its top-of the line features. As with all Isuzu trucks, the FTR and FVR will have superb 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” WB) and 65-ft. (248” WB). Great visibility is made possible by Isuzu’s legendary low cab forward-designed cab and new LED headlamps.
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.
In addition to the key features, other chassis benefits include:
LED lights: LED headlamps and daytime running lights provide enhanced illumination for safer driving and last longer than halogen bulbs for better value.
Enhanced Interior: Dual colored seats with a two-tone grey interior design that creates a comfortable cabin for passengers.
Turning Diameter: The Isuzu F-Series’ 50-degree inner wheel cut provides a class-leading turning diameter that eases driver effort in tight urban environments. This reduces the number of three-point turns in your routes, saves you driving time and makes for safer driving.
Exhaust: The Cummins Single Module After-Treatment has a linear design to keep the frame rails clean. It incorporates the diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalyst reduction (SCR), exhaust cooler and electronic exhaust restriction into a compact single-piece unit.
Fuel Tanks: The Isuzu F-Series offers a 50-gallon and a 100-gallon fuel tank. This gives customers the option to increase their range and lessen fuel stops. In short, it helps save time and time is money.
Air Suspension: The Isuzu F-Series trucks are available with air suspension. The standard air compressor outputs 17-CFM to quickly fill the air tanks and fill the suspension’s air bags. This option is popular for customers hauling fragile cargo or those who need to lower the chassis height for loading and unloading.
Wheels/Tires: Isuzu F-Series trucks are equipped with standard 11R22.5 tires on steel wheels. Customers can opt for aluminum wheels and, on the class 6 FTR, have the option for low-pro tires that lower the chassis for special applications like rollback bodies.
The combination of Isuzu’s outstanding medium-duty truck reputation and Cummins diesel engine expertise in the US and Canada creates a competitive product. The F-Series trucks will meet customer demand for urban-friendly low cab forward trucks while giving Isuzu dealers and Cummins the opportunity to expand their customer bases.
