THE CABOVER’S BACK
In response to many calls for a return of the cabover dropped from its lineup two years ago, Hino Canada is now building the class-4 Model 155 COE at its plant in Woodstock, Ont. It’s based on the Dutro model seen elsewhere around the world. Four wheelbase specs are offered — 110.6, 135, 152.4, and 165.4 in.
With a GVW of 14,700 lb, the 155 sports the companyís J05D-TF engine, a turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel that puts out 175 hp at 2,500 rpm. Torque output is 376 lb ft at 166. The only transmission offering is the Aisin 450-43LE, a 4-speed automatic. It has hydraulic disc brakes front and rear and the tires are 215/85R16.
Other standard equipment includes a tilt/telescope steering wheel, air conditioning, power windows and door locks, and heated mirrors.
Uniquely, the Model 155 comes with a 3-year roadside-assistance program to go with a 5-year warranty.
There are also six conventional models in the 2009 Hino lineup, including the air-braked Model 358.
