Hino » 198/238/258/268/338/358 ( 2011 )
In 2010 was presented the re-designed version of 2011 model year. Styling changes bring a new hood and front grille, while driver safety and efficiency improves with the addition of a Bluetooth-enabled GPS stereo and a new easy-to-read driver information display. The big news, however, is the launch of the all new class 5 Hino 198. It's built on a 19,500-lb GVWR truck chassis with the same styling seen on all the 2011 Hino MDT’s. Power comes from a 220-hp, 7.6-litre turbocharged Hino diesel using selective catalytic reduction emission control to meet 2010 standards. The SCR is expected to reduce fuel consumption by 3-5% on the 198 and other models. Elsewhere in the 2011 MDT lineup, the 2011 model 338 will receive a boost in power to 260 hp while torque on the Hino 358 increases to 660 lb ft. Front-axle capacity on the 358 increases to 14,000 lb.
