Probably, you’ve heard of Nissan, Toyota, Subaru and of course Isuzu. Isuzu is named after the Isuzu River and is based in Tokyo with factories all over the world. GM is a current shareholder of Isuzu and owns 34% of it, this has influenced how Isuzu does business. Isuzu is a very different kind of automaker, as its reputation has been built around commercial vehicles and diesel engines. Their diesel engines are used by a number of other automakers like Opel/Vauxhall and Land Rover. However, the car that I find most successful for personal use from Isuzu is their Isuzu D-Max pickup. Yes, finally I have taken the time to write about a pickup.
