EQUIPPED with class-leading
technology and the can do attitude
that accompanies Isuzu s ready to
work range, the new Isuzu NLR 45-150
Servicepack ticks all the boxes.
Following the ongoing success of the
Isuzu ready-to-work range, including the
factory-built Tipper models in various
sizes, and the eagerly sought re-designed
Tradepack and Traypack models, the new
Servicepack is crafted with the quality
expertise that has kept Isuzu at the top of
the Australian truck market for 27 years.
Isuzu s capacity to capture the needs of
the Australian tradesperson and respond
with a smart, flexible package can be first
traced back to the release of the Tradepack
model in 2003.
Predicted by Isuzu to be a game-changer
for the industry, the entire initial range
quickly sold out across the country setting
a new benchmark for the light-duty sector.
Fitted with a high quality tray body, bull
bar and a three-year extended warranty, the
2003 NKR Tradepack was the first of its kind
to be driven from the showroom, and ready
to work .
Building on this excellent start, the
ready-to-work range has continued to
evolve and expand bringing class-leading
application vehicles to the market ever
since, and Isuzu is confident the NLR
Servicepack will be every bit as popular as
The new NLR Servicepack model,
available with a 5-speed Manual
Transmission or Isuzu s easy driving
6-speed Automated Manual Transmission
(AMT), is designed with the specialist
tradesperson or contractor firmly in mind
-- and can be driven with only a standard
passenger car licence.
Ample on-board storage is provided with
eight lockers of various sizes, each fitted
with internal LED lighting for optimum
visibility no matter what time of the day or
night you re called to work.
Between the two rows of lockers is a
central storage area with load rated tie-
down hooks, while the integrated-step
towbar and reversing camera add to the
form and functionality of the vehicle.
The NLR is both compact and nimble,
with a tight turning circle and short wheel
base dimensions that fit comfortably into
any standard driveway -- perfect when home
is the base of your operations.
With an impressive GVM of 4,500 kg,
GCM of 7,000 kg and towing capacity of up
to 2,500 kg, the latest ready-to-work vehicle
offers formidable payload backed up with
serious power credentials.
Powered by the Isuzu 4JJ1-TCS, 3.0 litre
diesel turbo charged and intercooled
engine, the Servicepack delivers power of
110 kW (150 PS) @ 2,800 rpm and torque
of 375 Nm @ 1,600 -- 2,800 rpm, while
comfortably meeting the Euro V emissions
Isuzu Australia Chief Engineer, Product
Strategy Simon Humphries says this latest
offering is a real win for those tradespeople
in the market for a work or field service
"The Servicepack is the perfect fit-for-
purpose solution, it s the same size as a
traditional ute and boasts a superior 1.5
tonne payload and the full suite of trucking
credentials behind it.
"Drivers can be confident they re carrying
their load legally, and in turn the handling
and control is second to none as the
Servicepack is custom-built to carry these
"The compact proportions of the
Servicepack make it perfect for accessing
work sites and getting as close to the task
as you need to on domestic jobs.
Superior safety standards are delivered in
the NLR with driver and passenger airbags,
pretensioner load limiting seatbelts on
driver and passenger seats, Isuzu Stability
Control System (IESC), Anti-Lock Braking
System (ABS), Anti-Skid Regulator (ASR)
and an ECE-R29 compliant cab.
Isuzu Australia National Sales Manager
Andrew Harbison says the Servicepack
model adds a versatile workhorse to an
already stellar line-up.
"We developed the Servicepack for
tradespeople with big plans, and as the
new model can be driven on a passenger
car driver s licence -- business owners will
have maximum flexibility among their
driver workforce," Mr Harbison said.
"We ve listened to our customers and
responded to the needs of the market with
a durable, multi-purpose truck that can still
fit into a commercial car park or suburban
driveway or garage.
"The storage capabilities and central
locking system have all been developed
for customer convenience, security, and
the maximum amount of productivity, you
won t waste time making multiple trips for
those extra tools you might need on a job,"
Mr Harbison said.
Driver comfort is also taken care of with
the Digital AudioVisual Entertainment
(DAVE) unit that provides a 6.2"L C D
touch screen, DAB+ digital radio and
fully integrated Bluetooth with voice
"With the Isuzu NLR Servicepack, we ve
created a one-stop vehicle for a huge range
of applications," Mr Harbison said.
"We re confident this offering will be a
popular entry to the market as more and
more tradies reap the benefits of this
