When it comes to commercial trucks, the two big names leading the industry are Hino and Isuzu. Not all trucks are created equal, however, and as much as Isuzu commercial vehicles may be popular, there are a few areas where Hino trucks clearly stand out. Here’s why Hino commercial trucks leave their Isuzu competition in the rearview mirror:
Hino has a big presence in Canada and not just on the roads. Hino has been providing trucks to Canadians and Canadian companies for close to 50 years. The company has a major assembly plant in the Woodstock, ON area that was expanded in 2016. It’s nice to know Hino is helping employ Canadians and the economy. Isuzu has large assembly plants in the U.S., but not Canada. For Canadian companies and drivers, you can take pride in operating Hino trucks.
Hino trucks are known far and wide for their reliability. Truck drivers and fleet operators throughout Canada and all over the globe rely on Hino trucks and only Hino trucks because they are trustworthy and reliable. In comparison to Isuzu Trucks, Hino’s lineup is known for having stronger frames that are better at resisting bending. The Hino 195, as an example, is reported to have a frame 32% stronger than the Isuzu NRR model. But Hino’s reliability is nothing new; dating back to 2011, major publications have raved about Hino’s engine quality.
If you’re ever in an accident or even breakdown on the side of the road, it’s nice to know Hino has your back. HinoWatch Roadside Assistance is a comprehensive program aimed at keeping you safe and your truck on the road. Hino's lockout service can get you back into your truck if you ever lock yourself out accidentally, and if your battery doesn’t turn over on a cold winter morning, HinoWatch will send someone to give you a jump start. In the event your truck simply won’t start, HinoWatch also provides towing services to get you and your truck to a nearby garage so you can get back on the road quickly. Most companies have some sort of roadside assistance program, but few can compare with HinoWatch.
