Traviz, N-Series Hit 1,000-KM On One Full Tank


Already known for its fuel efficiency, Isuzu Philippines has managed to add two more under its belt as it recorded two outstanding fuel economy figures for its Traviz light-duty truck and its NLR85E truck at its Isuzu One Full Tank Challenge.

Observed and certified by the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP), the Traviz traveled 1,063 kilometers or good for 21.26 km/L, while the NLR85E covered 1,234 kilometers or 16.45 km/L.

Starting off at its newest dealership up north, Isuzu La Union, the company fielded the two Blue Power trucks.

“As the number 1 truck brand in the country, we try to provide the best business solutions to our customers, and with the rising fuel prices, we offer to them our most fuel-efficient variants. The Isuzu One Full Tank Challenge is our way to test and prove our trucks’ excellent fuel economy, which is why we would like to as much as possible test the efficiency of our truck under normal driving conditions, carrying weight and passing through cities and highways. The results are truly impressive, it somehow suggests the optimum numbers our customers can get if they practice good driving habits on the road,” said IPC President Hajime Koso.

From Isuzu La Union, the trucks travelled in just one full tank carrying a weight equivalent to 100 kilograms for the Traviz and 500 kilograms for the NLR85E. Driving towards north, the participants drove all the way to Pagudpud, then down to Cagayan on its first day. The next day, the trucks travelled farther south before settling the night in Clark, Pampanga. With little fuel left at the start of the third day, the trucks cleared through NLEX then SLEX before making its final stop at Pagbilao, Quezon.

Running on its tried-and-tested 4JA1 blue power diesel engine, the Isuzu Traviz has a fuel tank capacity of 50 liters, perfect for last mile deliveries. During the run, it was driven and navigated by Mon Dimapilis and Alvin Mañalac, who managed to achieve an impressive 1,063 kilometers at the end of its journey.

Equally impressive is the Isuzu NLR85E, which is one of company’s most popular variants, that took longer on the road covering a total of 1,234 kilometers. Running on a common-rail direct injection 4JJ1-TCC blue power engine with 75-liter fuel tank capacity, the NLR85E truck was driven and navigated by drivers Alex Gonzales, Marjune Espraguira, and Johnsy Reyes.

“This edition of the Isuzu Challenge truly shows Isuzu’s advancement in terms of diesel engine technology, our trucks are well-known to be durable and fuel efficient which is manifested by the impressive results of this Challenge. On top of that, we continue to advocate economic and safety driving so that our customers can reap the over-all benefits of driving their Isuzu trucks,” said IPC Asst. Division Head, Robert Carlos.
