Special Isuzu KB72 models launched

Isuzu KB72

General Motors South Africa has just announced the availability of the Isuzu KB72, a limited edition version of the KB250 LE Double Cab, to commemorate Isuzu’s successful completion of its 72 hour record-breaking challenge.

The aim of the challenge was to better established time and distance records, set in 2003, for diesel powered pick-ups. During the challenge Isuzu demonstrated the reliability, durability and economy of its diesel technology. Fundamental to the success of setting new records, the vehicles to be driven non-stop on the limit for a period of 72 hours – with fuel economy having a direct impact on the result as time taken to refuel the vehicles translated into time and kilometres lost on the track.
