The Diesel Technology Forum (DTF) has announced that Isuzu Manufacturing Services America, a medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicle and diesel engine producer, has joined the Forum.
“We are proud to welcome Isuzu Manufacturing Services America to Forum,” said Allen Schaeffer, the executive director of the Forum. “Isuzu’s long tradition of producing high-quality commercial vehicles and diesel engines on a global scale is a perfect fit with the Forum’s work to promote the most advanced diesel technology in the U.S. and internationally.”
Isuzu Motors was founded in 1916 and is the oldest Japanese vehicle manufacturer. Isuzu has expanded its operations into a global network that provides equipment and engines in more than 100 countries. This year, Isuzu celebrated its 30th year of service in the United States.

Isuzu’s current array of N-Series trucks offer a choice of two diesel engines plus a gasoline engine that’s both CNG and LPG capable. In addition, they are 50-state clean-idle certified and to meet EPA 2010 and CARB HD-OBD standards, the most stringent emissions requirements in the world.
