Truck of the Year

September: 2018 Truck Of The Year Entrants

Spring is finally upon us, and that means the grand finale of Isuzu’s 2018 Truck of the Year competition is well within sight.

This month’s winner, picking up $300 worth of Isuzu merchandise, is  ACDC ENERGY PTY LTD.

Our monthly winners will be in running for the end of the year Grand Prize—a $6,000 Visa cash card. So what are you waiting for? Enter your Isuzu truck today!


To transport large-scale solar and electric equipment across Queensland, ACDC Energy required a vehicle that could deliver on multiple fronts. This is what led to the upgrade from a utility to a new Isuzu NPR 45-155 Tradepack. The sleek bullbar at the front always gets admiring looks from onlookers too. The renewable energy company is thoroughly pleased with their purchase and shared, “Our Isuzu truck is a perfect fit!”


Maximum efficiency, minimal risk—that’s the motto at Manco Engineering, which performs rail electrification works. Assisting them in their critical operations are two tough Isuzu FVZ 1400 trucks that are locked in together and easily managed through a central control room. Whatever the situation, tough tasks are no sweat for Manco’s mean machines.


A family skip bin business up in the mountains that services south-east Queensland, Tamborine Skips chooses Isuzu Trucks, with the FSR 140-260 being the latest to join the fleet. Fitted with an eight-tonne skip lifter body, the truck can take on huge loads and still effortlessly navigate narrow lanes and work sites. What’s more, the custom branding always guarantee compliments on the road.


Going to work might feel like a chore for some, but for Simon Burke it’s a pleasure thanks to his favourite ride, the Isuzu FXD 1000, which also doubles as his office. With the reliability and power of Isuzu Trucks, Simon’s growing fleet has always delivered—which is why he has never considered anything else.


Roll up to the Beef’d Up food truck in Sydney and enjoy the mouth-watering American-style burgers and Southern fried chicken, all served hot and fresh from their sleek Isuzu NNR 150. According to Beef’d Up’s Vivian Tag, they love the truck. And it’s easy to see why.

Carting commercial cooking equipment, the truck comfortably houses a large grill, two basket fryers, a double-doored fridge, a three-door fridge, an LCD screen, double sink basins, a petrol generator and more.


Matthew Rossato’s love for Isuzu began when his old ride was replaced by the Isuzu NLR 45-150. And with features such as an automated manual transmission (AMT) making life easier, it’s understandable why Matthew says this truck gets the work done with ease. Judging by the photo, it truly was love at first sight for these two.


Vehicle transportation can be a nightmare for anyone. The team at Mallacoota Automotive & Towing get that, and that’s why they have their dependable Isuzu at the ready. Whether it is a roadside breakdown or a scheduled vehicle move, Isuzu’s FTR 150-260 is always up to the task. And as owner Noel Bruce puts it, “From transporting cars, containers, caravans, boats or anything else, the truck always gets the job done.”
