NOVI, Mich. — For the third straight year, Hino’s engines have won a J.D. Power and Associates award for Medium-Duty Truck Engine satisfaction.
The study measures customer perceptions of 2009 model year Classes 5-7 vehicles. Eight factors were used to measure overall engine satisfaction, including: reliability; accessibility to components for service; engine warranty; engine control module; maintaining speeds on grades; fuel economy; vibration at idle; and acceleration while loaded.
“Hino Trucks’ heritage of design excellence and advanced engineering is reflected in every truck. The fact that Hino’s proprietary engine has received this award for each of the three years the award has been given is a tremendous accomplishment,” said Glenn Ellis, vice-president of marketing and dealers operations for Hino Trucks. “As the emission regulations continue to challenge the engine manufactures to produce more efficient, cleaner engines, Hino is proud to meet this challenge and maintain the quality, durability and reliability our customers demand.”
