Hino Australia has announced a raft of special offers for light duty truck buyers over the next three months, including free automatic transmission upgrades, free reversing camera and the opportunity for customers to win back the purchase price of their truck.
The Aisin-based Hino six-speed automatic has a fuel-saving torque converter lock-up in five ratios, while the learning characteristics of its transmission control unit can comfortably adapt the gearbox to the driving style of the driver.
The six-speed auto has a ‘neutral control’ feature which electronically switches the transmission to neutral when the truck is stationary and the brakes are applied, reducing engine and drivetrain load and offering significant reductions in fuel consumption.
Hino’s 4.0-litre engine is equipped with a common-rail fuel injection system and variable geometry turbo technology to achieve lower emissions and uncompromised power and fuel efficiency.
Mr Morris said the chance for 300 Series retail customers to win back the price of their truck would be an enticing opportunity for light-duty truck buyers.
“Being able to win up to $80,000 back on the cost of a new Hino 300 Series is such an exciting concept for us and our customers; in most cases, this covers the entire cost of their truck,” he said.
“It represents a huge bonus for owner-drivers and small business owners – every retail and small sole-fleet buyer of 300 Series trucks will go into the draw to win.
“The 300 Series is the safest it’s ever been, further extending its mantle as Australia’s safest light-duty truck, and we’ve packed it full of extra value.
“All up, it means that right now is the best time in recent memory to pick up a new 300 Series truck,” Mr Morris said.
