The heat is on in the 4×4 light-duty truck market and Fuso doesn’t intend to be left behind.
The Japanese brand has seen rivals Hino bring their 300 Series 4×4 to market in recent times (reviewed here), while Isuzu has just launched an updated version of the N-Series 4×4.
Who’s buying all these different trucks? Priority number one for the different manufacturers are operators like rural fire brigades and power companies for power line inspections etc.
Throw into the mix people who want to use a light-duty 4×4 as the platform for a go-anywhere campervan, as well as farmers and forestry service operators too.
There’s even some people who are choosing to upgrade to one of these vehicles out of large 4×4 SUVs and dual-cab utes.
So, there probably could be enough buyers in Australia for the different models, particularly as these really are quite adaptable vehicles and, while outwards appearances might suggest otherwise, they are all quite different.
