Hino Trucks and Allison Transmissions Announce Long-Term Partnership
Hino Trucks and Allison Transmissions today announced that the two companies would be entering into a long-term agreement making Allison transmissions the sole transmission provider to the Hino truck line in the United States.
Allison transmissions have been available on Hino Trucks since 2004. The combination of Allison transmissions with Hino’s J-series engines has resulted in Hino Trucks ranking highest in JD Power’s Medium Duty Truck survey in the engine and transmission category for four years in a row.
As part of the new multi-year agreement, all Hino Trucks will have better transmission coverage than ever before. All Allison 2000 Highway Series transmissions will now come with a 4-year factory warranty, while 2000 and 3000 Rugged Duty Series transmission will now have a standard 3-year warranty.
The new 3 and 4-year warranty will be through Hino Trucks and start with the 2012 model year.
