The astonishing Hino 500 Series Wide Cab redefines what to expect from a hard working truck. Its unrivalled build quality delivers next level chassis, suspension and axles. You also have more engine and transmission options to choose from including the 6 speed Allison automatic transmission.

In fact, this is the most comprehensive active safety package ever offered by a Japanese truck in the medium duty category. In an Australian-first for this class, Vehicle Stability Control is standard across the Wide Cab range.

All this complemented by a level of driver comfort you never thought possible.

And because we're driven to do more for you, you'll also have Hino Advantage - our innovative new range of business building support solutions - along for the ride.

Change the trucking game in your favour.

Pre-Collision System

Pre-Collision System is a true Active Safety system which helps the driver to avoid or reduce the impact of a collision. The system detects a vehicle in front using radar and image sensors. If the system detects the possibility of a collision in front, it will warn the driver through safety eye to apply the brakes using both visual and audible alerts.

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

Pre-Collision System also includes a function through PD and detects a pedestrian in front using radar and image sensors. If the system detects the possibility of a pedestrian in front, it will warn the driver through safety eye to apply the brakes using both visual and audible alerts.

Lane Departure Warning System

Lane Departure Warning System alerts the driver both visually and audibly if the vehicle deviates from its lane without the indicators being triggered.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control takes the basic principle of cruise control and also utilises Safety Eye to reduce the engine acceleration and engage the engine brake.
