Isuzu is a company that is dedicated to producing heavy commercial trucks and diesel engines for decades now. The company was formed in 1934, and it has been in business producing its own vehicles and engines that have been used by dozens of car manufacturers worldwide. Part of this company’s success can be attributed to the linking with General Motors in 1972 when General Motors received 34% stake in the company. This propelled massive success since the two companies were able to co-produce a number of cars that were widely accepted in each company’s dominant market.
By 2009, Isuzu had made more than 21 million diesel engines, which is an indicator of the level of success that this company has been able to achieve. The company’s main focus is on diesel engines, commercial diesel-powered trucks and buses. The company’s headquarters are in Tokyo, but it has offices and manufacturing and assembly plants in many other parts of the world.
In Australia, trucks from Isuzu are widely used in commercial establishments. Their SUVs are also common in neighbourhoods across the country. This company has been the market leader in the Australian truck market since 1989, and all signs point to it staying there. As at December 2014, one out of every four trucks sold in Australia was an Isuzu. This is the reason at Car Wreckers Sydney we are dedicated to providing you with high-quality replacement parts for your Isuzu that will withstand the tough commercial or off-road use that your car was built for.
