Isuzu Truck expands Grafter truck range

The truck expansion comes after a year of record sales for the haulier manufacturer

Isuzu Truck UK has announced that it is expanding the range of options within its award-winning Grafter range for 2021.

The Isuzu Grafter 3.5 tonne truck range will now incorporate a choice of models on the most popular Grafter 120hp, which includes a new option over the standard 6-speed manual transmission of a fully automatic 6-speed gearbox for the first time.

The haulier manufacturer had its best performance ever for 3.5 tonne vehicle sales in 2020, representing a 17.3% increase in comparison to the previous year.

Richard Waterworth, head of sales at Isuzu Truck UK, said: “The Grafter has been available in the UK for many years now and, based on our long-term operational experience at this GVW, we believe that the latest Grafter 2021 version is a most excellent all-round truck package that is ideally suited to UK operators.

“In cooperation with our colleagues in Japan, we have been able to refine the driving performance, reliability, and efficiency of this range, but keeping our unique forward cab design.”

He added: “Not only does the fully automatic gearbox now make the Grafter even easier to drive, especially within urban environments where it works at its best, but it is now even lighter in weight than its predecessor, whilst offering further improved driving performance as well as reduced emissions.”
