Six-speed transmission

Powered by a 3-liter diesel engine that generates 150 horsepower, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America’s Reach commercial van uses a medium-duty, six-speed automatic transmission with double overdrive, lock-up torque converter and power take-off. Its body was designed by Utilimaster.


Charge up

Charge your iPad and use it for line-out audio or as an external GPS antenna with RAM Mounts’ dock. Putting your iPad within fingers reach, you can stay connected to the office and jobsites while in your truck. It’s compatible with a variety of Ram’s mounting systems.



Hands, glue free

Forget the mess, glue and tools and mount your cell phone or GPS unit in your truck with Cobra Electronics’ universal cigarette lighter mount. With an USB charging port, the mount has a flexible, 5-inch gooseneck design. To revive stickiness for a better hold, simply spray glass cleaner on the adhesive.


Propane autogas

Trucks fueled by propane autogas – such as the Roush CleanTech 2012 Ford F-250 in partnership with the Propane Education and Research Council – can be refueled through onsite dispensing, which includes a large tank and a no-spill dispenser. Liquid propane autogas injection systems have a multi-port liquid injection that delivers the autogas directly to the cylinder’s intake port.

Three-tank version

The General Motors 6-liter G4500 cut-van chassis from CleanFuel USA features a factory-installed propane autogas fuel system. The chassis is available in a three-tank version, which offers 35 gallons of fuel capacity. The V8 engine is capable of 324 horsepower.
