Hino Diesel Trucks (USA) has announced its 2002 lineup of Class 4-7 cabover trucks:

Class 4 FA4J Series: This Class 4 truck series has a GVW rating of 15,000 pounds and GCW rating of 21,000 pounds. FAs are powered by a four-valve overhead cam, four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 168 horsepower at 2500 rpm. It drives through either a five-speed direct-drive synchromesh transmission, or through a four-speed Allison AT542 automatic transmission. This model can achieve up to 17 mpg. Capacity has also been increased on the FA. An FA can be ordered with wheelbases from 115" to 165", accommodating 12- to 18-foot bodies.

Class 5 FB4J Series: The FB Series features a GVW rating of 17,600 pounds and GCW rating of 26,400 pounds. It is powered by a four-valve overhead cam, four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 168 hp at 2500 rpm. It's also driven through either a five-speed direct-drive synchromesh transmission, or a four-speed Allison AT542 automatic transmission. Fuel economy is as high as 16 mpg, and the FB can handle 14-18 foot bodies.

Class 6 FD2J Series: This Class 6 truck has a GVW rating of 23,000 pounds and GCW rating of 35,000 pounds. The wheelbase ranges from 148" to 217" to handle 16- to 24-ft bodies.

The FD is powered by a four-valve overhead cam, six-cylinder diesel engine that produces 200 hp at 2500 rpm. It's driven through either a six-speed overdrive synchromesh transmission, or a new Allison 2400P World transmission with a “park” position. The new five-speed automatic transmission also features a “power position” and “economy position.” It also has a lockup torque converter with a standard exhaust brake and PTO openings on both sides of the transmission. Other improvements on the FD include a high-mount fan that improves cooling capabilities while keeping noise to a minimum.

Class 6 FE2J and Class 7 FF2J Series: The FE has a GVW rating of 25,995 pounds and GCW rating of 40,000 pounds, while the FF has a GVW rating of 30,000 pounds and GCW rating of 45,000 pounds. The FE can handle 16- to 28-ft bodies, while the FF is designed for 18- to 26-ft bodies. Engines in each model are the same and have a four-valve overhead cam, six-cylinder diesel engine that produces 200 hp at 2500 rpm. Like the FD, the FE and FF are available with a six-speed overdrive synchromesh transmission, or optional Allison 2400P World transmission on the FE and Allison 2000 Automatic on the FF.

Class 7 SG2J Series: SG trucks have a GVW rating of 32,900 pounds and GCW rating of up to 50,000 pounds. The SGs can be specified with a longer wheelbase (244") that allows 19- to 28-ft bodies to be used. The SGs are driven by four-valve overhead cam, six-cylinder diesel engine that produces up to 252 hp at 2500 rpm. New for 2002 is an engine-driven PTO option, available with either manual six-speed or Allison five-speed automatic transmission. Other new features include the high mount fan center for better cooling, and “power assist” with the manual transmission that reduces shift effort by 60%.
