Allison Transmission Japan, a designer and manufacturer of conventional and electrified vehicle propulsion solutions, has announced that Allison 3000 Series and 4000 Series transmissions have been selected for the FS, FY and the new FH and FR models of Hino Motors’ HINO 700 Series heavy-duty trucks for the Australian market.
The Hino 700 Series was previously only available with a 13-litre engine. Still, a new 9-litre A09C engine has been added to the lineup, and models equipped with the A09C engine are now available with a 6-speed Allison fully automatic transmission. All models of the HINO 700 Series for Australia are Euro VI-compliant, and even with the smaller engine, the torque converter amplifies the torque to deliver a smooth and powerful starting performance. Together with the adoption of Allison automatic transmissions that provide smooth gear shifting, air suspensions are also available with the HINO 700 Series FH, FS, and FR models and are expected to be introduced to delivery vehicles that require more delicate transportation.
Smooth driving performance
The Allison automatic transmission with torque converter provides excellent acceleration at start and highly efficient driving performance, enabling smooth gear shifts that transmit uninterrupted torque to the wheels vita its Continuous Power Technology.
Fantastic feedback from Australian drivers
The Allison fully automatic transmission has been extensively evaluated and applauded by drivers for its stress-reducing ease of operation. Positive feedback from Australian customers on the role of the transmission in improving productivity has resulted in increased sales of Allison automatic transmissions in the country. The four Hino models equipped with Allison automatic transmissions are expected to be used in various industries and applications, including delivery trucks, refuse trucks, mixer trucks and trailers.
