Isuzu Engine Meets EPA Emissions Requirements.
According to Isuzu, Tier 2 requires vehicles to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions by at least 75 percent versus pre-existing levels. Isuzu noted that the direct-injection gasoline V6, which is the standard engine for the 2004 Axiom and 2004 Rodeo, reduces NOx emissions by 87.5 percent versus its conventionally fuel-injected predecessor, lowers non-methane organic gas (NMOG) emissions by 16.7 percent and improves fuel economy and horsepower by six to 10 percent and 8.7 percent, respectively.
"This engine is more environmentally friendly, efficient and powerful," said Isuzu Motors America president J. Terry Maloney. "But it doesn't require premium fuel. It's like having your cake and eating it too, and then finding out your cake is low in calories."
