Isuzu is a Japanese vehicle manufacturer. The enterprise is designated after the river of the same name. The first automodel was 1953 the Isuzu Minx, under license hergestellterHillman a Minx. The first self-developments of the Japanese enterprise after the separation from the British group of root it were into the 1960er years the models Bellel . bark . 117 and Florian . In the year 1971 general of engine took part in the enterprise.

This led to it that Isuzu took part also in the world autoproject of GM, from which the Isuzu Gemini came out. In addition into the 1980er the models appeared to years Aska and Piazza . Since beginning of the 1990er years produces the enterprise only jeeps, LKWs and buses. Occasionally Honda as well as the GM daughters sold Holden, OPELs and Vauxhall Isuzu jeep under their name.

General of engine sold in April 2006 its portions of Isuzu for approx. 300 million dollar. Thus Isuzu is its own mark at present. Existing co-operation with GM are to be resumed however.


Compared with other Japanese manufacturers the list of independently developed passenger car models is rather short. Above all close co-operation with general of engine led to the fact that Isuzu took up foreign developments like the Isuzu Gemini to its program. In addition it the GM daughters refused to Isuzu long time to offer competitive vehicles on their homeland markets or to sell vehicles on these markets under own name (e.g. in Australia).

This led to the fact that Isuzu admits abroad rather as a manufacturer of niche vehicles such as jeeps or Pick ups became. Since beginning of the 1990er years is away-broken also this market, since Isuzu vehicles no more are not sold under the name of their manufacturer. So today Isuzu is probably one to few well-known and identity-loosest automakers and possesses for GM same value as an approaching down taking.

The same is feared for marks as Suzuki, particularly however for Daewoo, whose vehicles on many markets are sold under very different designations.


Diesel engines

Isuzu Aska

Up to the introduction of modern diesel engine developments with OPEL (CDTI) the Diesel engines blocked in Opel vehicle series came partially from Isuzu, in particular the 1,7 litres of engines (1,7 TD, 1,7 DTI,В…). The statement of OPELs for this was before always, Isuzu represents within the GM company the Diesel authority. This statement, connected with moderate performance data and bad comfort characteristics of many of these engines (noise behavior) held OPEL drivers over long years from the Diesel purchase.

The last diesel engines supplied by Isuzu are the 1,7 CDTI (Common Rail Diesel turbo Injection) with 80 HP or 100 HP. These are offered partially still by OPELs. Parallel to it the 1,3 CDTI and 1,9 CDTI engines are offered, which are a joint development of GM Powertrain and originally come from the FIAT company.

These engines are achievement and consumption-technically at the point of their segment.

There is however from ISUZU also still the 3.0L V6 CDTI engines, which the Euro3 and/or Euro4 exhaust standard is used to correspond and in the OPELs VECTRA/SIGNUM/CARAVAN.

The Euro4 engine is in series available with a maintenance-free soot particle filter.

The Euro4 engine is engine particularly the further developed and improved successors of the Euro3 the pleasant noise behavior and the even maximum engine torque of 400 Nm over a far speed range can convince.
