Isuzu Launches the Traviz Light-Duty Truck with Prices Starting at P 962k (w/ Specs)

Isuzu Philippines Corporation launches a “last-mile” transportation solution with its all-new Traviz light-duty truck. Based on the D-Max platform, the Traviz boasts of durability, big cargo capacity, a fuel-efficient powertrain, and modern design.

Named after a combination of “Transport, Trading, Transcend” and “Business,” the all-new Traviz is available in two wheelbase configurations: the short wheelbase Traviz S and the long wheelbase Traviz L. While both versions have a 1.6-ton payload capacity, the long wheelbase version can readily accept a 10-foot body.

Powering the Traviz is a Euro 4 version of the Crosswind’s engine: the 4JA1. This 2.5-liter common rail direct injection engine makes 78 horsepower at 3,900 rpm and 176 Nm of torque at 1,800 rpm. Mated to Isuzu’s MUA-5S 5-speed manual, the Traviz does up to 23.4 km/L based on a test conducted with the Automobile Association of the Philippines or AAP.

Boasting a 4.5-meter turning radius, the Traviz is made to negotiate tight urban confines, yet it has the largest cabin in its class for the maximum comfort of its three occupants. Power steering is standard equipment as is a Deceleration Sensing Proportioning Valve or DSPV to help keep it stable even during heavy braking.

For comfort and convenience, the Traviz comes with a four-way adjustable driver seat and a standard built-in Tuner/USB sound system with two speakers. A reverse warning buzzer is standard, but air conditioning is optional.

Announced during its launch, the Traviz will also form the basis of Isuzu’s entry into the Class 1 Modern PUV. More details about that version will be announced at a later time.

The pricing for the 2020 Traviz starts at P 962,000 for the short wheelbase version and P 992,000 for the long wheelbase version. These prices reflect the cab & chassis configuration only. Standard is a 3-year / 100,000 kilometer warranty.

  1. This will easily beat Toyota's ugly Hilux based PUV.

    1. Haha! They have the Hiace though to beat this truck with an old Crosswind engline.

    2. May nakapag-drugs na mas importante itsura kesa performance.

  2. Crdi + euro iv compliant already of the crosswind's jurassic engine, yet only pumps out similar ratings vs. its euro ii predecessor tapos halos 1m peso ang presyo. Sinong bibili nito? IPC talaga walang kwenta lols. Sana yung bagong d-max na lang ang dinala nila rito.

    1. Or sana man lang yung 1.9 na lang na makina ng MU-X eh. Mas maliit pero hamak lakas at efficient pa.

  3. No argument Toyota should have converted the Hiace into a PUV. But they are probably afraid a sub P1M Hiace will cannibalize their existing sales of Hiace Commuter costing P1.6M.

  4. engine is small,should be new dmax engine

  5. Mahal naman wala pang aircon.Ok nayan sa 750k!

  6. Mitsubishi L300 Fb is still the king. With it's new Power train, it is the best choice among SME business user.
