As a global leader in diesel engine development and production,
Isuzu plays an important role in introducing new technologies and
standards that seek to minimize environmental impact, while still
meeting the high performance benchmarks expected of Isuzu
In launching its all-new 2011 model ranges, Isuzu meets or
exceedes the requirements of the latest emission requirements
stipulated under ADR80/03 design rules, by developing all new
engines which comply with the much more stringent EuroV emissions
This means that the new range of Isuzu SiTEC Series III engines
are the cleanest Isuzu Diesel Engines to be made available in
Australia almost entirely eliminating smoke, soot and harmful
invisible unburned hydrocarbons normally emitted from a truck's
Isuzu Clean Air Solutions (I-CAS) technology was applied to the
new engines to meet these high environmental standards; I-CAS
incorporates three key technologies to improve emissions and
These include 'in-cylinder' combustion optimisation technology,
the very latest in exhaust after-treatment processes and the most
advanced in-house developments in electronic control technology. In
addition we have recently released 4 new CNG models which emit zero
As Australian truck market sales leader for 22 consecutive
years, Isuzu is not only committed to being the market leader, but
exceeding its owners' expectations in every possible way, and this
includes providing truck buyers and the wider community with the
cleanest truck range possible. After all would you expect anything
less from Australia's favourite truck?
