Hino Trucks has signed a multi-year contract that makes Allison Transmission the exclusive supplier of transmissions for all Hino conventional trucks in the United States.
Hino, a subsidiary of Japanâ€™s Toyota Group Co., said it has used Allison transmissions since introducing its truck lineup in 2004. Allison makes automatic transmissions.
The pact means Hino will offer a four-year warranty for Allisonâ€™s highway series transmissions and a three-year warranty for trucks having Allisonâ€™s series transmissions. The warranties begin with the 2012 model year.
The deal also means Hino and Allison will be working together on new technologies, according to Glenn Ellis, Hinoâ€™s vice president of marketing.
