Background on Isuzu
Isuzu Motors Ltd. is a Japanese company engaged in the production, marketing and sale of Isuzu commercial vehicles and diesel engines. Headquartered in Tokyo, Isuzu traces its roots to Tokyo Ishikawajima Shipbuilding and Engineering Company which decided to venture into automobile manufacturing. The company that evolved through partnerships and mergers eventually became Isuzu in 1949.
Isuzu also partnered with General Motors in 1971 which led to the release of Gemini, and then with Subaru in 1987 which resulted in the introduction of the Isuzu Rodeo and Isuzu Pickup. Sales peaked in the 1990s at a time when Isuzu had a larger lineup with cars, trucks, and SUVs. Currently, it has narrowed down to the Isuzu D-Max pickup truck and Isuzu mu-X SUV.
