Delivering a mix of Euro 5 and pPNLT emissions standards, the 500 Series provides the ideal combination of power and efficiency. The medium-duty truck boasts an expanded transmission range offering the choice of 6, 7, 9, and 11-speed manuals with three different 6-speed automatic variants specifically suited to the different engines and applications.

Comfort

Designed For Driver Comfort

The Hino 500 Series is ergonomically designed with the driver in mind. From small trucks to big, Hinos are designed for the driver experience. A carefully considered dashboard, an easily accessible cabin, and the truck’s air suspension helps absorb vibrations from road bumps too.

Transmission

Expanded transmission range offering the choice of 6, 7, 9, and 11-speed manuals with three different 6-speed automatic variants specifically suited to the different engines and applications.

To complement the Hino manual and automatic models, the FE 1426 can come with the Hino ProShift 6 AMT transmission. This AMT features a two-pedal only driveline and has no clutch pedal. The mechanical clutch operation is controlled by the on-board computer and shift actuator. Clutch components are subjected to significantly less wear than conventional manual transmission models.

Available across our medium duty cab range, the 6-speed automatic transmissions are fuel-efficient Allison units with a push button shift selector.

Safety

The Hino 500 Series trucks offer an unbeatable active and passive safety package, with safety features including ABS Anti-lock brakes, Easy Start system, and driver’s SRS airbag as standard.

Front Under-run Protection (FUP) technology is incorporated in our standard bumper bar to protect other motorists by preventing their vehicle becoming trapped and crushed under the front of the truck in the event of a front-on collision.

FUP also provides additional protection for the truck’s steering components, helping the driver maintain control and come to a safe stop. You will also have peace of mind knowing your truck is extremely crush-resistant. The cabin meets the internationally recognised European Structural Standards Regulation No. 20 (ECE-R29) for cabin strength.

Environment & Economy

Our Hino 500 Series is designed for fuel-efficiency and low emissions, while delivering powerful driving performance, high durability, comfort, and transport quality.

The reliability of our medium-duty trucks reflects our reliability as a business partner. Clean-burning emissions compliant engines offer flexibility with GVM ranging from 10,400kg to 26,000kg. Employing a common rail system for optimum control of the fuel injection process and a high-efficiency exhaust gas recirculation system to reduce combustion temperature, the 500 Series achieves almost complete combustion.

The Euro 5 engines are equipped with a variable nozzle turbo charger, contributing to precision air control, cooling efficiency, and low-pressure loss – all of which helps with your bottom line.

Durability

The Hino 500 Series is known for its high level of durability and reliability, meeting the best potential under harsh conditions.

Our trucks are tested on a range of systems for fuel efficiency, driving, and cold weather performance. The truck’s air suspension helps absorb vibrations from road bumps achieving transport quality while the taper-leaf suspension is designed to produce less inter-leaf friction to deliver a flat riding feeling and high durability.

We also evaluate the functions of parts and the characteristics of resin polymers on test benches. Only after passing test drives that exceed tens of thousands of kilometres are our trucks delivered to you.

Comfort

All Hino trucks are ergonomically designed to provide a cabin with ease of access, plenty of legroom, and controls at your fingertips.

The 500 Series offers clear-vision instruments, a tachometer, speedometer, remote central locking, and full suite of warning gauges and lights. All models have factory-fitted Denso air conditioning, cruise control, and remote central locking with an integrated engine immobiliser and power-operated windows.

The seat can be configured to the body type of any driver with fully air adjustable height, rake, cushion tilt, backrest, lumbar support, side bolsters, and weight settings. Integrated seat-mounted seatbelts mean the seatbelt adjusts with the motion of the driver, preventing painful belt-tightening that can occur with cheaper, pillar-mounted belts.
