2021 Truck of the Year Competition, Brought to You by Isuzu

Mar 04, 2021 0min read
If 2021 didn’t start off quite like you were expecting… at least Isuzu’s Truck of the Year Competition remains a constant, celebrating all things truck, great and small. The time-honoured tradition of crowning the King of the Isuzus harks back to Isuzu Australia Limited’s very first Truck of the Year Competition in 1996. A year like no other, 1996 saw the launch of the world’s first DVD player—undoubtedly a historic moment with blockbuster titles like Twister and Independence Day also released this year. In the trucking world, Isuzu’s “FV Turbo” Series made waves featuring 1,000 Nm of torque and 199 kW of power, a benchmark for Japanese trucks at the time. Fast forward 25 years to the truck that took home last year’s Grand Prize and any nostalgia you’re currently feeling should be relieved.
