Isuzu Philippines Corporation will display its entire truck lineup next week, from June 20 to 22, at the Le Pavillon on the corner of Macapagal Boulevard and EDSA Extension in Pasay City.

Headlining the three-day event are Isuzu\'s new medium-duty trucks, the Forward FRR and the Forward FVM, which are \"expected to bolster IPC\'s leadership in this segment.\"

The Forward FRR is powered by a 5.2-liter, turbocharged diesel engine that\'s equipped with a common-rail direct-injection system, allowing it to produce 207hp and 673Nm of torque through a six-speed transmission.

The much larger Forward FVM, meanwhile, is equipped with a 7.8-liter, six-cylinder turbocharged CRDI mill, which, with its six-speed transmission, puts out 237hp and 706Nm of torque.

According to IPC, the FRR has a gross vehicle weight of 10,600kg and a payload capacity of 7,450kg, while the FVM has a gross vehicle weight of 25,000kg and a payload capacity of 18,380kg.

Besides the two new models, IPC\'s bestselling light- and heavy-duty trucks will be displayed at the event and will be showcased in different body applications to highlight their versatility.

Isuzu\'s technical representatives will also offer free seminars on how to maximize the benefits of owning their trucks, including conversion safety tips on truck body applications, local regulations and restrictions governing trucks, and direct-injection diesel technology. Raffle draws will also be held every hour with the lucky visitors winning special prizes.

IPC also has a special offer to customers who will purchase any truck variant from June 20 to July 31: free LTO registration and P20,000 worth of Caltex fuel cards.
