The Isuzu is blessed
One of the latest Euro VI Isuzu Urban 7.5t rigids made a big splash at this year’s annual historic Cart Marking ceremony in the City of London.
The Cart Marking ceremony, which took place at the Guildhall in London, is a time-honoured tradition involving a multi-vehicle parade and vehicle drive-past in the presence of the Rt Hon Mayor of London, the Sheriff of London and other city officers. Selected vehicles, representing the history of transport, are branded with a red-hot iron on a wooden plaque and each plaque carries a unique vehicle number and the Carmen Arms. The ceremony acts as a reminder of centuries of service by transport organisations to the City of London.
In the livery of long-time Isuzu customer MC Truck & Bus, the Isuzu truck taking part in the Cart Marking ceremony was one of the first of the new Isuzu Urban N75.150 rigids recently launched by Isuzu as part of its new 2014 Euro VI product portfolio.
The Isuzu Urban 7.5t 4×2 rigid featured Isuzu’s latest Euro VI, four-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled 3.0 litre diesel engine, producing 150PS, matched to Isuzu’s popular Easyshift automated gearbox. The vehicle was also fitted with a standard curtainsided body.
Keith Child, marketing director at Isuzu Truck UK, was pleased to take part, saying: “Once again, Isuzu Truck has played an active role in this event, always featuring a latest specification Isuzu that will operate within the London area.”
