HinoHino is assembling conventional Class 4–7 trucks in North America, instilling the maneuverability and durability found in its low cab-over-engine medium-duty trucks in a truck with a hood. Hino's 5- and 8-liter J-Series diesels provide the power, and American driveline components from Allison, Eaton, Dana, Meritor, Hendrickson and Accuride carry torque to the pavement. The four-cylinder is rated at 175 horsepower with 347 lbs.-ft. of torque, and the six-cylinder engine rates as high as 260 hp and 585 lbs.-ft. of torque. With a 51-degree front wheel cut, engineers say the conventional's turning circle is only a foot larger than a comparable Hino cab-over.
