In fact, by 1999 General Motors had become the majority stakeholder in Isuzu at 49 percent, but sadly this occurred around the time of a major recession and Isuzu ended up shutting down these operations in the U.S. and instead focused mainly on making commercial trucks and diesel engines.
Modern Isuzu Trucks Era
These days, Isuzu still has some of its N and F series of commercial trucks driving around the world. Plus, they are still making commercial trucks designed for towing, hauling building supplies, working in pest control, and landscaping. It is estimated that nearly 90 percent of the Isuzu trucks that have been sold in the U.S. are still running due to their high quality and workmanship.
In 2005, Isuzu was known at the biggest truck manufacturer in the world for heavy and medium duty trucks by 2009 they have made more than 21 million diesel engines, which are currently being used by the companies Renault, Opel and General Motors.
Today, Isuzu has its headquarters in Tokyo and is still turning out quality trucks with a multitude of uses.
