Overview of Vehicle
Also known as the Isuzu Traga, this pickup truck has not been in the business for an extended period of time. The very first edition of the Isuzu Traviz went into production in April 2018. The main competition of this pickup vehicle is the L300 pickup truck manufactured by Mitsubishi. 'Traga' means 'extra spacious' in Indonesian, which justifies the genre of the vehicle. The predecessors to the Isuzu Traviz are the Isuzu Bison and the Isuzu Panther pickup truck. The latest model is the Isuzu Traviz 2020.
The new model of the pickup truck has quite a few notable changes as compared to the other models. This pickup truck is manufactured by Isuzu and mostly assembled in Indonesia. It is a light commercial vehicle that is designed to carry heavy-weighing goods. If you are someone searching for pickup trucks for goods-transporting purposes, the Isuzu Travis might be the one you are looking for. There are two variants of the latest Isuzu Traviz models, namely the 2.5 Traviz S and the 2.5 Traviz L (cab-chassis only). To make that choice, read all about the Isuzu Traviz's features and specifications stated ahead.
When we say performance, the very first thing that pops in our mind is the engine. The Isuzu Traviz features a 2.5L Four JAI common rail, directly-injected blue power engine which runs on diesel. The engine features a total of four cylinders and as many as sixteen valves. The engine is a powerful one since it sports a whopping max power of 78HP/3000RPM and a maximum torque of 176.5NM/1800RPM. The Isuzu Traviz features a 5-speed manual type of transmission. The same kind of combination is found in the Isuzu Crosswind and the Euro-4. The pickup truck is of the rear-wheel-drive type. However, there are no airbags available. The engine displacement of the vehicle is around 2500cc. The fuel capacity of the Isuzu Traviz is 50 litres, which is more than suitable for a commercial vehicle.
When it comes to on-road performance, the vehicle delivers a commendable performance. The steering feels smooth. The lightweight framework of the vehicle facilitates in a swift movement. Since the Isuzu Traviz is a commercial vehicle, both in the sense of design and performance, it cannot be expected to perform like a sedan or a hatchback. It can carry a significant amount of cargo and still be able to move with ease. It runs on diesel and provides quality fuel efficiency. The fuel capacity also facilitates the vehicle to function efficiently and for more extended periods.
if you are looking for full-fledged features that you find in all the other types of cars such as sedans and SUVs, you will be disappointed because of the Isuzu Traviz, being the commercial vehicle that it is, sports the bare minimum interior decorations. There are two seats – one for the driver of the vehicle and the other for a co-passenger. In order to keep the people in the pickup truck cool, manual climate controls are present so that one can adjust the surrounding temperature inside the vehicle as per their convenience. There is also a 1Din stereo system fitted inside so that the passengers have the option to listen to music or radio.
The facility of inputting a USB drive into the USB port available in the vehicle is a vital addition. The sound of media comes out through dual speakers that come built-in with the vehicle. The optional air conditioning option simply adds to the convenience factor. The seats are covered with cloth and, therefore, lack any sort of elegant or premium touch. The engine of the Isuzu Traviz is present under the seat, and therefore, the seats have a limited number of options for making adjustments. For example, the driver's seat can only be adjusted in the forward and backward directions.
The passenger seat cannot even be adjusted in the forward or backward direction. It remains bolted upright since it is bolted to be in a fixed place. Therefore, providing comfort is not the main aim of the vehicle. The trunk size is enormous, making it easy to store tons of goods at a time. Coming to the color scheme, all the variants of the Isuzu Traviz come draped in the grey color and, therefore, do not provide the audience with beauty and elegance. In simpler words, the main focus of the Isuzu Traviz is to deliver highly when it comes to performance. There are not many options available for customizing the interior, as well as the exterior looks of this pickup truck.
From the outside, the Isuzu Traviz looks like a plain and simple vehicle that has been designed for commercial use. No intricate designing or detailing is present anywhere on the outer surface of the vehicle. The look of the Isuzu Traviz resembles that of the Isuzu Elf. It has the same flattened face that the Elf has. The headlights, too, show uncanny resemblance. The two large halogen headlights on both sides of the largely-designed grille add to the similarity in terms of exterior looks. Present on the grille is the official emblem of Isuzu, which is similar to the ones on the passenger vehicles designed by Isuzu. Coming to the tires of this commercial pickup truck, the Isuzu Traviz features robust 14-inch wheels. The tires that come installed with the vehicles belong to the commercial-grade tires category.
The wheelbase of the Isuzu Traviz is 2250mm thick. The ground clearance of the vehicle is appreciable since it easily allows the vehicle to carry heavy loads of shipments consisting of goods without making the base touch the ground. The curb weight of the pickup truck is 1290 kgs. The truck is built to carry heavy shipments. The main aim while designing the vehicle was to make sure that it would be able to transport goods without facing any sort of internal or external issue, and the Isuzu Traviz ultimately succeeds at doing that. It is a commercial vehicle that ticks all the right boxes when it comes to transportation uses.
