Posted on November 29, 2011

Hino Trucks and Allison Transmission announced the recent signing of a multi-year, long-term agreement that will make Allison transmissions the preferred and exclusive transmission for all current and future Hino conventional trucks in the United States.

Since Hino Trucks introduced its conventional truck lineup in 2004, Allison transmissions have been the transmission of choice, Hino said. Through the new agreement, Hino said it will be able to offer its customers enhanced transmission coverage on Allison equipped vehicles. All Allison 2000 Highway Series (HS) transmissions will now carry a four-year warranty and the 2000 and 3000 Rugged Duty Series (RDS) transmissions will carry a three-year warranty through Hino Trucks starting with the 2012 model year.
