Japan Used Trucks


A truck or lorry is a motor vehicle designed to transport cargo. Trucks vary greatly in size, power, and configuration; smaller varieties may be mechanically similar to some automobiles. Commercial trucks can be very large and powerful and may be configured to be mounted with specialized equipment, such as in the case of refuse trucks, fire trucks, concrete mixers, and suction excavators. Strictly speaking, a commercial vehicle without a tractor or other articulation is a "straight truck" while one designed specifically to pull a trailer is not a truck but a "tractor". Modern trucks are largely powered by diesel engines, although small to medium size trucks with gasoline engines.

History of Japan Trucks


Mitsubishi Trucks, Japan

Truck production in Japan began in 1913 and had its roots in the Tokyo Gas Electric Co., Ltd. Currently, Tokyo Gas Electric Co., Ltd. has made automobiles continuously under the familiar name "Isuzu Motors Limited" for 100 years. Japanese zaibatsu (business conglomerates) began building their first automobiles in the middle to late 1910s. The companies went about this by either designing their own trucks (the market for passenger vehicles in Japan at the time was small), or partnering with a European brand to produce and sell their cars in Japan under license.

The demand for domestic trucks was greatly increased by the Japanese military buildup before World War II, causing many Japanese manufacturers to break out of their shells and design their own vehicles.
