Medium-Duty Truck of the Year

2018 Medium-Duty Truck of the Year, another strong victory for the Isuzu Team!

Isuzu FTR Named 2018 Medium-Duty Truck of the Year.

Isuzu Commercial Trucks of America’s (ICTA) Class 6 FTR was named the 2018 Medium-Duty Truck of the Year. The honor was announced by Work Truck Magazine at the 2018 NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, where ICTA received the award for the third time in the last six years.

2018 Medium-Duty Truck of the Year
2018 Medium-Duty Truck of the Year

The 2018 FTR cabover vehicle placed first among eight other medium-duty trucks, selected by professional fleet managers based on such factors as application effectiveness, durability, quality, servicing, maintenance, and lifecycle costs.

Then again, the new Isuzu FTR isn’t just your typical Class 6 truck. According to ICTA President, Shaun Skinner, “its low-cab-forward design and proven 5.2 Liter four-cylinder engine allows for great maneuverability and excellent fuel economy”.

The Michigan-built FTR Class 6 truck features a turbocharged intercooled 215-hp diesel engine, along with an Allison 6-speed Automatic Transmission, improving the vehicle’s torque capability to 520 lbs. per foot. With a listed GVW of 25,950 lb., the FTR has a payload allowance of up to 15,690 lbs.

The FTR comes standard with left-hand power take-off capability (PTO), and can accommodate bodies up to 30 feet. The truck is equipped with 8 wheel bases and has a proficient turning diameter of 43.7 to 65 feet, reducing maneuverability difficulty for city-delivery applications and tight corners, particularly in urban areas.

Innovations in comfort highlight the FTR truck’s user experience. The driver and passenger are each equipped with individual captain-style seats (as opposed to a common split bench) and plenty of storage space.

The newest model in Isuzu Commercial Truck’s roster of low-cab-forward vehicles is sure to bolster Isuzu’s image of dependability, durability, and cost efficiency. ICTA expects to produce approximately 1,200 FTR units in the 2018 year.

The Hino XL Series adds capability and new advantages to Hino Trucks product portfolio while holding true to the brand’s core advantages of industry-leading standard features, durability, reliability, and ownership experience. “Considering our remarkable success in Class 4-7 in North America, and our growing global presence in the Class 8 market, entering the North American heavy duty segment makes for the next logical step.  Not to mention our customers and our dealer network have been asking for this for some time,” said Yoshinori Noguchi, President and CEO of Hino Trucks North America.

The Hino XL Series will be offered in a host of straight truck and tractor configurations ranging from a GVWR of 33,000 to 60,000 lbs. and GCWR up to 66,000 lbs. with max performance of 360 horsepower and 1,150 lb.-ft. torque. Available wheel base selections of up to 304 inches, and tandem axle and fifth wheel configurations make this a versatile truck for many vocational applications.

The lineup features new active safety solutions with electronic stability control (standard on tractor) and collision mitigation systems, innovative payload management suspension options, and a body builder friendly optimized design that was also engineered for maximum ease of serviceability.

Hino Trucks set out to create a vehicle with best-in-class styling, ergonomics, and valued amenities. “Both drivers and owners are going to love this truck!” remarked Glenn Ellis, VP of Customer Experience.  “The first thing you notice is the styling — the aerodynamic yet bold design could proudly represent any business.  Then you open the door to a wide, easy-access entry and an automotive grade finished interior ready to provide the best service possible to drivers and teams.”  Air-ride cab and driver’s seat, hands-free Bluetooth audio/calling, steering wheel controls, LED headlights, cruise control, and air conditioning are a few of the distinguished features that will be standard equipment on every 2020 model year Hino XL7 and XL8.

As with everything Hino Trucks does, the Hino XL Series is more than a product, it is about providing Hino customers an ultimate ownership experience.  The benefits current Hino customers receive — from HinoWatch 24/7 roadside assistance and HinoCare maintenance programs to the industry’s leading fully integrated connected vehicle solution, Hino Insight – will be benefits for Hino XL Series customers.  Hino Insight Telematics carries a one-year complimentary subscription, while Insight Remote Diagnostics and Insight Case Management are complimentary for five-years.

Production of the new Hino XL7 and XL8 will start in early 2019. The new lineup will be assembled in Mineral Wells, West Virginia at the fully renovated one million square foot state-of-the-art production facility that Hino acquired in 2017.

Hino To Expand U.S. Operations

HINO TO MAKE SUBSTANTIAL INVESTMENT TO EXPAND U.S. OPERATIONS

Source: Hino Trucks

Novi, Michigan, Sept. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hino To Expand U.S. Operations, Hino announced today a substantial investment plan to strengthen its U.S. operations with the introduction of a new truck line and new facilities.

Hino To Expand U.S. OperationsToday at a press conference, Hino announced its plan to purchase the former Cold Water Creek distribution center and convert it into its new truck assembly plant in Mineral Wells, West Virginia, close to its current plant.  The new plant, planned to be operational in early 2019, will also house cab assembly, an operation currently conducted in Japan.  “The new plant, which is four times the size of our current plant, will allow us to combine several assembly operations under one roof which will provide significant efficiency gains,” noted Hino Motors Manufacturing U.S.A. President, Takashi Ono.

Also, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice stated, “West Virginia has enjoyed a very good relationship with Hino. This new plant demonstrates that Hino has confidence in our state, and West Virginia is a great place to do business.  On behalf of everyone in the Mountain State, I thank Hino for their continued investment and the creation of new jobs.”

Hino To Expand U.S. Operations
The total investment to the new plant will be approximately $100 million, creating about 250 new jobs in early 2020 over a two-shift operation.

In addition to producing Hino’s current award-winning line up of conventional trucks, the new truck assembly plant in West Virginia will produce a new line of Class 7 and 8 trucks which Hino plans to introduce in 2019.  The truck will be powered by Hino’s proven A09, 9-liter engine.  Already sold in many other markets around the world, the Hino A09 engine will have a horsepower range from 300-360 HP.  Hino is planning a public reveal of the new truck at the 2018 NTEA Work Truck Show.  “These are truly exciting times for Hino in the U.S.  Our growth and customer acceptance in the Class 4-7 market are enabling us to introduce wider variety of products” stated Yoshinori Noguchi, CEO of Hino North America.

As part of Hino’s growth plan, Hino broke ground last month on a new state of the art corporate office in Novi, Michigan.  Hino is consolidating all operations in its new corporate headquarters, including sales, marketing, service, engineering, purchasing and manufacturing.  Hino’s Insight Diagnostic Center, which monitors vehicle performance and uptime for all Hino trucks equipped with Insight, will also operate out of the Novi headquarters.  During the ground breaking ceremony, Noguchi said, “Today’s ground breaking not only signifies Hino’s growth in the U.S., but also a new beginning for our operations in the U.S. within our new U.S. headquarters.  In that spirit, we are excited to break ground on our new office and collectively work together as one Hino U.S. team.”  Investment in the new state of the art corporate office, which consolidates all the operations, totals $20 million.
