Hino employs a 19,500-pound GVW chassis on the COE 195 “for class-leading payload capability.” The truck has a 5-liter engine rated at 210 horsepower with 440 foot-pounds of torque, mated with Aisin’s A465, 6-speed automatic transmission. It meets U.S. EPA 2010 limits with SCR (selective catalytic reduction).

The 195h boasts a “sixth-generation” hybrid drive.

Like the new 195h-DC, the 195h hybrid was launched at the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis – in 2011.

“The four-door, six-person double cab is redefining driver comfort with its optional magnetic suspension seat in a cab designed to accommodate drivers up to 6’6” tall,” Hino says.

Hino’s new smart phone app is designed to help the modern driver stay connected, with easy access to information on models and dealers and more.
