GM and Isuzu to partner for medium-duty commercial truck

GM and Isuzu to partner for medium-duty commercial truck

Chevrolet will offer low cab forward medium-duty trucks in the U.S. in 2016, returning the brand to a growing segment of the commercial vehicle market. The six new models – Chevrolet 3500, 3500HD, 4500, 4500HD, 5500 and 5500HD – are based on the Isuzu N-Series, which General Motors will procure from Isuzu and distribute through Chevrolet dealers.

“Bringing low cab forward trucks back to our portfolio strengthens Chevrolet’s commitment to providing commercial customers with more choices and provides customers with a versatile lineup of trucks, vans and crossovers,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of GM fleet and commercial sales. “This addition helps our dealers satisfy their commercial customers’ needs all in one place.

The new trucks will be offered in regular-cab and crew-cab body styles. A GM-sourced 6.0L V-8 gas engine and six-speed automatic transmission, or Isuzu-sourced 3.0L and 5.2L turbo-diesel engine will be available, depending on the model. Along with the Isuzu-badged versions, the Chevrolet models will be the only low cab forward trucks in the North American market to offer a gas-powered powertrain.

This is a new Russian made military truck Ural-4320-70 "Ural-M". The new multi-purpose truck was produced by the Ural Automobile Plant in Miass specially for using in armed forces. "Ural-M" has a bonnet layout and 6x6 chassis. A distinctive feature of the new truck is a new cab with a plastic hood. Ural-4320-70 "Ural-M" could carry up to 12.5 tonnes and engine power of 285 hp.

This is the first photo of the Russian multipurpose transporter "Platform-O", produced by "KAMAZ". The new heavy truck KAMAZ-78504 is a 4-axle transporter vehicle, which should replace MAZ-537 which is produced by Minsk Automobile Plant.

There will be three different models in the new range of vehicles. We're talking about 8x8 semi trucks and ballast tractors rated at 90-165 and 75 tonnes, respectively. In addition, there will be a 12-wheeled platform with a capacity of up to 50 tonnes to carry mobile residences, communications centers, command centers, headquarters and provide alerting items.

Russian racing team "Kamaz-Master" will use these new racing trucks with hoods

Russian racing team

"Kamaz-Master" racing team introduces a new truck for the rally-raids. Unlike other racing "KAMAZ" trucks the new one has a bonnet layout. The main advantage of the bonnetted truck is better weight distribution. As a result, the car is much easier to drive and it becomes a little more comfortable. KamAZ took for the base of the new truck which doesn't have their own name yet an all-wheel drive chassis from previous race cabover truck KAMAZ-4326.

Since KamAZ does not release bonneted trucks, the cab and the hood were borrowed from the Mercedes-Benz Zetros truck. It looks impressive, but now it does not look like the usual KAMAZ, and this fact is not very good for promotion of mass production made by KamAZ plant.

It was necessary to replace the power unit: a former Liebherr V8 engine just did not fit under the cab, so now it is equipped with a straight-six diesel Caterpillar, tuned by the Czech racing team Buggyra. This engine has a capacity of 12.5 liters and develops up to 980 hp.
