Kuala Lumpur, 08 March 2024 – Isuzu Malaysia has ushered in the new year with the launch of the new medium-duty Isuzu FVR Smoother (FVR34UU-SDN), a 4×2 drivetrain, Euro 5 emission standard with 6-speed AMT (automated manual transmission) truck. The introduction of this new model signals key milestones as Isuzu focuses on delivering improved emission standards technology for environmental protection and sustainability, and enhanced performance and efficiency.

This new truck is also the latest to join the full range of Isuzu trucks from light-duty to prime mover that are equipped with Isuzu’s Smoother AMT, thus offering customers the choice of automated manual transmission technology in the medium-duty range.

The medium-duty FVR Smoother AMT model forms part of Isuzu’s Forward range that has successfully achieved established reputation among long-haul truck operators in Malaysia and other global markets who sought for trucks with high performance and durability, low-running cost, impressive maneuverability, spaciously comfortable cabin and safety.

Apart from the FVR Euro 5 Smoother AMT, Isuzu also shared that the best-selling ELF light-duty series will be offering the Euro 4 emission standard truck range to customers starting today. 

Chief Executive Officer of Isuzu Malaysia, Shunsuke Okazoe, said, “The introduction of the new Isuzu FVR Euro 5 Smoother AMT and ELF Euro 4 trucks demonstrate our commitment towards the Isuzu Environmental Vision 2050 carbon-neutral strategy roadmap that seeks to maintain our leadership in transportation, minimize environmental impact, contribute to the development of logistics and build a prosperous and sustainable society.”

“Isuzu’s wide range of products have been highly trusted and appreciated by customers for the ability to deliver outstanding benefits for their logistics business. This trust has consistently granted Isuzu the accolade of being recognized as the top truck brand in Malaysia for the 10th consecutive year and light-duty truck brand for the 14th consecutive year. This is also a testament that Isuzu understands what our customers need in order to stay competitive and resilient in the midst of adapting in the evolving landscape.”

He also commented that the new trucks will present Isuzu customers with better experience thanks to the improved emission technology that exceeds the Euro 3 emission regulation, which will begin in Malaysia in April this year. With Euro 4 and Euro 5 engines, the Isuzu Light Duty and Medium Duty trucks can effectively reduce particulate emissions and nitrogen oxides compared to Euro 3 levels.

The efficiency of driving is significantly enhanced with Isuzu Smoother AMT. This transmission is automatically-controlled by electronic computers and further assisted by a torque converter hydraulics system which operates the clutch and throttle to match revs for the gear change required. The smooth gear shifting and consistent torque in frequent stop-start driving environment provides higher levels of efficiency.

The new FVR Smoother truck is powered by a 6HK1-TCN 6-cylinder engine and has a GVW of 19-tonne capacity which allows truck operators to maximize each load to reduce their transportation costs. The front axle capacity which is at 7,500kg and the rear axle capacity which is at 13,000kg significantly contribute to superior carrying capacity for bulk deliveries. On top of that, the maneuverability of the truck enhanced by the functions of Smoother AMT makes it ideal for intra-city hauling.

With maximum safety as a key aspect, both the FVR Euro 5 Smoother AMT and ELF Euro 4 series are equipped with the Isuzu Safety Plus platform, which comes with comprehensive active and passive safety features. For FVR Smoother, it equips with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), and Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Airbag for the driver, and Hill Start Aid function helps prevent roll-back when starting up the truck again from a stopped position on sloppy terrain. As for the ELF Series, it is equipped with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Airbag for the driver, Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) and Anti-slip Regulator (ASR).

Other features such as the cabin tilt warning, LED headlight for superior brightness during night driving, USB port for driver’s convenience and central locking with remote keyless entry and immobilizer for added security are all available with the new Isuzu FVR Smoother truck.

Isuzu also shared that in conjunction with the launch of the new trucks, the company will be organizing the Isuzu Smoother Drive 2024 Program from 11 to 29 March across Isuzu Dealership in Malaysia. The program is a nation-wide truck roadshow cum corporate social responsibility event to showcase the reliability and performance of the trucks travelling over long-distance across Malaysia to deliver care and aid to the underprivileged and old folks’ homes.
