Specs for 2018 Isuzu FTR released

Isuzu’s new Class 6 medium-duty model slated to start production in mid-2017.

Isuzu Commercial Truck of America highlighted key specifications of its all-new Class 6 medium-duty truck, the 2018 Isuzu FTR, following a series of “whistle stops” at several dealerships the OEM made while taking the vehicle on a nationwide tour over the last two weeks.

Isuzu originally unveiled the 2018 FT model at the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Work Truck Show back in March of this year.

Some of the specs being announced for the dock-height 2018 Isuzu FTR include:

• A 25,950 pounds gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR).

• Eight wheelbase lengths ranging from 152 to 248 inches, accommodating bodies from 14 to 30 feet long.

• The 2018 FTR will come standard with an Isuzu 5.2-liter 4HK1-TC engine that generates 215 hp and 520 lbs.-ft. of torque, mated to an Allison six-speed automatic transmission with power take-off (PTO) capability.

• The truck’s Dana-supplied axles will have capacities of 12,000 lbs. up front with a 19,000 lbs. rear suspension.

• Bridgestone or Continental 11R22.5 tires will be the standard offering on the 2018 FTR; fitted onto 22.5-in. × 8.25-in. steel wheels.

Isuzu added that FTR is slated to go into production at a new manufacturing facility in Charlotte, MI, in mid-2017.
