Winners named by Isuzu for Truck of the Year

Commercial vehicle manufacturer, Isuzu Australia Limited, has made the winners of its annual Truck of the Year competition public.

Project management and installation specialist, Powered Innovations was awarded the top prize for its NPR 65-190 for a mobile repair platform tasked with carrying electrical and mechanical equipment.

First nominated in October, Powered Innovations was adjudged as the N Series and overall Grand Prize winner.

The Truck of the Year, which was first started in 1996, helps recognise Isuzu's array of loyal customers who remain at the core of the company's success according to Les Spaltman, Isuzu Australia Limited National Sales Manager.

“We couldn’t have achieved what we have without the backing of the Australian truck buyer," he said.

“Competitions such as Truck of the Year are a way for us to show our appreciation of our customers’ continued support of the brand," said Spaltman.

“It’s also a nice platform that brings together a community of like-minded truck owners who take pride in their trucks, which for many, are at the core of their businesses.”

A winner, according to Isuzu, is chosen each month from a pool of submitted entries, and the year’s monthly winners go into the yearly draw for the Grand Prize of $6,000 (Visa cash card).

Last year saw the introduction of the Series Prizes for the N Series, F Series and FX/FY Series and Giga truck models.

Each Series prize is to the tune of $1,000 in a Visa cash card.

Vac Truck Rentals was awarded the prize for the F Series category for its custom bodied FVZ 260-300.

Target Transport Services, an asphalt and profiling carting company took home the award for Best truck in the FX/FY Series for its FYX 350-350 Auto.

The Giga Series winner went to dangerous goods hauler Alpha Haulage.

AJ Hope & Sons, Allens Freight, Coachbiz, Extract or Blast and holidaymakers Graham & Robyn Butler all received monthly commendations.
