Chronology
Predecessor Isuzu 810

The Isuzu Giga (Japanese: いすゞ・ギガ), also known as the Isuzu C/E-Series (second generation), is a line of heavy-duty commercial vehicles produced by Isuzu. The Giga's size range is mostly made up of full-size trucks, and was previously known as the 'Isuzu Heavy-Duty Truck'. It was created to succeed the Isuzu 810.

Most full-size models of the truck are distinguishable by a front 'Giga' and 'CXZ' badge, but the common Isuzu badge is usually used on the rear.

In Global markets, its principal competitors are Mitsubishi Fuso Super Great, Nissan Diesel/UD Trucks Quon (replaces Big Thumb), and Hino Profia (known as the Hino 700).

Outside Japan, the truck series are in the "C" and "E", for Comfort and Economic, respectively.

First Generation (1994–2015)[edit]

The original Giga line was introduced in 1994 as a successor to the Isuzu 810, initially as a standard roof. It is also available in high roof configuration.
