Hino Trucks Introduces New Models and Cab Configurations

Hino unified its entire lineup of trucks, including model names, to make it even easier for you to match the perfect Hino to your business’ needs. Hino announced its new “M Series” Class 4/5 COE’s and new “L Series” Class 6/7 Conventional trucks, which combined with Hino’s recently launched “XL Series” Class 7/8 vehicles, creates a cohesive family of commercial trucks.

But the badges are not the only updates. Each vehicle now contains larger cab configurations, and a full suite of features adding safety, fresh designs, durability, flexibility, and connectivity options.

The new COE truck models carry Hino M4 and Hino M5 badging with the number in the naming scheme representing GVW class. For 2021 model year, these trucks have been upgraded with an all-new grille design complete with optional LED headlights and HD 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission with gear hold feature. Interior upgrades feature a new shifter layout, steering wheel controls, an all-new gauge cluster including a 4.2-inch LCD multi-information display and driver’s seatbelt sensor.

The new Conventional line is represented by the Hino L6 and Hino L7 models boasting a bolder front fascia with optional LED headlights. The cab interior is re-engineered with an automotive grade finish designed for commercial use and improved functionality, steering wheel controls, a large 7-inch LCD multi-information display, more storage, and leg room. Hino also takes safety very seriously, which is why there is now an array of safety systems available on the Hino L Series including Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Collision Mitigation System (CMS), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Active Cruise Control (ACC), and driver’s seatbelt sensor. Adding even more functionality to your business are new wheelbase options and extended and crew cab configurations.


“Having extended and crew cab choices will help us better serve our customers’ operational needs and open-up new markets for our trucks,” explains Glenn Ellis, SVP customer experience. “It’s impressive how accommodating and spacious both cabs are. Our engineering and design team really did an outstanding job with our new full lineup.”

The 30-inch extended cab will have seating for five and the 44-inch crew cab will have full-size doors, seat six passengers, and provide the comfort of rear zone A/C and heat.

The Hino XL Series also gets new advantages for 2021 model year including the extended cab and crew cab configurations and a snow plow package complete with an 18,000-lb GVW front axle and front frame extensions. The Hino XL7 and XL8 will now come standard with a driver’s seatbelt sensor and available ACC building on the trucks’ ESC, CMS, and LDW active safety solutions.

Hino Trucks dealers are now accepting orders for the new 2021 models. The extended and crew cab variants will be added in the spring and the XL snow plow package in summer timeframe.
