Nov 30, 2011 11:47 AM
Hino Trucks and Allison Transmission Inc recently signed a multi-year, long-term agreement that will make Allison transmissions the preferred and exclusive transmission for all current and future Hino conventional trucks in the United States.
Since Hino Trucks introduced its conventional truck line up in 2004, Allison transmissions have been the transmission of choice. The combination of Hino Trucks’ proprietary J-Series engine and Allison automatic transmissions have proven to provide Hino customers with maximum uptime and industry leading fuel economy, according to Hino officials.
Through the new agreement, Hino will be able to offer its customers enhanced transmission coverage on Allison equipped vehicles. All Allison 2000 Highway Series (HS) transmissions will now carry a four-year warranty and the 2000 and 3000 Rugged Duty Series (RDS) transmissions will carry a three-year warranty through Hino Trucks starting with the 2012 model year.
