The progressive municipality of Tiaong in Quezon Province will be seeing a fleet of Isuzu Traviz light duty trucks performing efficient and effective multi-purpose duties for its citizens.
In a simple turn over ceremony held last January 11, Isuzu Philippines Corporation turned over 25 units of its lightweight truck, Traviz, fitted with emergency response-type utility van body to local officials of Tiaong at the municipal grounds.
IPC executives, led by Sales Division Head Joseph Bautista, Dealer Sales Department Head Mario Ojales, and Dealer Sales Section Head Danny Nunez, along with officers of the facilitating dealership Isuzu Pagbilao, namely its President and General Manager Marcel B. Tolentino, Sales Director Marcel Joseph A. Tolentino, and Truck Elite Sales Executive Rolan Isaac Torres, were on hand to turn over the Traviz units to Tiaong officials led by Mayor Ramon Preza, Vice Mayor William Razon, and Councilor JP Preza. With 25 barangay captains of the municipality, to whom each unit will be assigned, were also present to witness the event.
In his special message, Bautista reiterated that, through the Traviz, IPC continues its strong partnership with various sectors of Philippine society, especially in public service, in order to fulfill its commitment to be “Your Responsible Partner”.
“We are confident that these Isuzu Traviz lightweight trucks will perform even beyond expectations for the different barangays here in Tiaong, and you can count on its durability and reliability that your municipality made a very wise investment in purchasing these Isuzu trucks—because an Isuzu truck really goes a long way,” he said.
The Isuzu Traviz is powered by the Euro 4-rated 4JA1 2.5-liter Direct Injection Common Rail Blue Power diesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, and is rated to carry up to 1.6 tons of payload, the heaviest in the lightweight truck category. This makes it ideal for the Traviz to offer numerous advantages, such as interior cab spaciousness with wider cabins and better legroom, and a more ergonomic and comfortable—thus safer—driving position. Better maneuverability and the short turning radius of 4.5 meters make the Traviz ideal for multi-purpose trips in various barangays.
Apart from these features, two other key factors that made the Tiaong local government decide to purchase the Traviz were Isuzu Philippines’ commitment to comprehensive aftersales and nationwide parts availability, and their long-standing relationship with Isuzu Pagbilao who has been consistently assisting the municipality in its transportation needs.
