The History of Isuzu

In the U.S., the very first Isuzu truck arrived at the Port of Jacksonville, Florida on November 10, 1984. This was the KS22 truck with an 87-hp naturally aspirated diesel engine mated to a manual transmission. The Isuzu low cab forward design introduced U.S. business owners to a smarter way to work with trucks that are maneuverable, offer a low cost of ownership and deliver remarkable durability. After two short years, Isuzu trucks became the best-selling low cab forward trucks in America – an accolade that still holds true today.

Since 1984, over 500,000 Isuzu trucks have been delivered in North America. Our products have come a long way since the KS22, and we continue to build and innovate as our predecessors have. You’ll find the quality, durability and innovation that can only come from a century of expertise in every Isuzu truck, and we’re not finished!
