SERI KEMBANGAN: Isuzu Malaysia recently delivered eight units of medium-duty trucks from its Forward Series (F-Series) range to popular homegrown retail giant MR D.I.Y. Group (M) Bhd.

The new trucks were six FSR90 model and two FVR300 model, procured from Isuzu authorised dealer Ultra Gallant Sdn Bhd.

“Isuzu’s F-Series range of commercial vehicles feature a choice of five powertrain for a range of performance and torque, optimized wheelbases for greater load capacity and body-mounting capability, offering the versatility today’s businesses need to be successful,” Nakamura added.
