Hino Engine

Award Winning Engines

Hino Engines deliver dependable, fuel efficient power. Hino is recognized worldwide as one of the leading innovators in engine design. Combining high-pressure Common Rail Fuel Injection, Variable Geometry Turbocharger design and cooled EGR with Selective Catalytic Reduction [SCR] for emission control allows optimization of the air/fuel mixture across the entire speed range of the engine.


VNT turbochargers optimize airflow by changing the turbocharger’s output based on control input from the engine’s electronic control unit. This allows engine designers to more accurately control cylinder pressure and air/fuel ratio. Better control means a more complete burn, resulting in better fuel efficiency and full EPA compliance.

Hino Transmission

Allison Transmissons

Allison Transmission are standard on all conventional Hino Trucks and offer a fully automatic six-speed transmission that provides smooth, seamless full-power shifts to put engine power to the ground in the most fuel efficient way. The result of Allison’s fully automatic transmission is faster acceleration and higher average road speed, which equate to quicker route times throughout the day. That means greater productivity and increased profits for your business.


Hino 258 Interior

Cab Design

Strong, Straightforward, Dependable. Here’s a better way to build a cab – high visibility, great comfort and super low noise levels. All-in-all, it’s a great place for a driver to spend the day. With Toyota inspired interior design our cabs offer a complete package of the most necessary features—and then kept it simple and serviceable. Your drivers, technicians and accountants will love it.

Standard A/C and CD

Air conditioning is standard. So is a CD. Tilt and Telescoping steering column? Of course. Cruise control? Got it. Our goal was to make this a great place to spend the day – then make sure it makes business sense. We think you’ll like the combination.

Unprecedented Visibility

We placed the driving position high to gain a wide perspective of the road while also maintaining a good feel for the corners of the hood.

Fully galvanized steel cab with extra rigidity for ride comfort and noise reduction.
