Isuzu Truck launches new 3.5t Grafter Green range

Isuzu Truck Grafter GreenIsuzu Truck has taken it’s range of 3.5 tonne Grafter chassis cabs to Euro 6 with the introduction of a new 1.9-litre diesel and it does not require AdBlue to function, thanks to Lean NOx Trap technology. The new powerplant replaces the 3.0-litre unit from the previous Grafter and offers much improved fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions and it is now capable of operating in the new London ultra-low emission zone.

Despite the significant drop in engine capacity, power and torque have increased slightly to 123hp (@3,200rpm) and 320Nm (@1,600 – 2,000rpm) respectively. It now drives the real wheels (either single or twin) via a new six-speed manual gearbox and the clutch weight has been halved. Other major changes to Grafter include independent double wishbone spring/damper front suspension, improved rack and pinion power steering, redesigned cab and a reduction in overall noise levels.

Isuzu Truck Grafter GreenAvailable with a choice of two two wheelbases (2,490mm or 3,350mm), Grafter Green chassis cabs are lighter than their predecessors and consequently provide much improved body/payload potential. Weighing in at 1,710kg, the single rear wheel SWB chassis cab is 152kg lighter than its predecessor, while the twin rear wheel LWB is 150kg lighter than the old model. Grafter Greens have already been added to the Truck Driveaway pre-bodied programme, with both tipper and dropside models available from launch.

All Isuzu Truck Grafter Green chassis cabs come with a three-year unlimited mileage warranty and roadside assistance as standard. Tipper and dropside bodies are covered by a three-year/100,000 mile warranty.

“Grafter Green introduces new proven technology to the UK market, with many changes to the specification that will certainly differentiate the range from its predecessors,” said Pete Murphy, managing director of Isuzu Truck UK. “As a global manufacturer, Isuzu Motors has listened to UK customer feedback over the years and the changes have now been incorporated throughout the new Grafter Green model range for the UK market.”
