Up until now, having a 4×4 truck meant having your truck licence and being able to handle a manual transmission. With Isuzu’s new AMT, Australia’s first two pedal 4×4 light truck, however, anyone with a standard driver’s licence can drive it, a big bonus for emergency services.
There are two ways to tackle heavy off road tracks using two pedals. And we had Shane Jacobson demonstrate both, firstly with a disastrous downhill run on a mountain bike, and then with a trip in Isuzu’s new NPS AMT with some friendly rescue workers.
While it’s too early to have any firm sales figures, awareness of a new two pedal option is on the rise.
