Why A Hino Conventional Truck Meets Your Many Needs
How do you know if a Hino conventional truck is right for you? Whether you are hauling cars out of ditches in Petitcodiac or moving oil-patch gear or reefer loads around Leduc, your ride of choice must be durable, reliable and economical. Plus, you will want your drivers to be comfortable and safe. That is why you will definitely find your truck of choice somewhere among Hino’s stable of four conventional-style trucks; the Hino 258; the 268, the 338 or the largest of them all, the 358.
These trucks are for tough jobs requiring anywhere from 25,500 to 35,000 lb. GVWR; and that covers a lot of trucking! Hino provides outstanding value with a reputation for low-maintenance costs.
Every one of these produced-in-Canada vehicles can be custom-created for your specific needs. For one thing, Hino’s clean chassis design is standard for these trucks; meaning that there is nothing mounted to the outside of the frame rails behind the cab.
With Hino conventional trucks, the standard engine is the Hino 7.6-litre diesel common rail, direct-injection engine linked to a six-speed automatic Allison transmission. Horsepower ranges from 230-hp to 260-hp; maximum torque from 520 lb.-ft. @ 1,500 rpm to 660 lb.-ft. @ 1,500 rpm.
Superior maneuverability, excellent visibility and the long list of standard features, ensure that the line-up of Hino’s medium truck models provide the outstanding driver comfort that Hino has become renowned for.
