Hino 300 4X2 Light Duty Truck range – Motoring Minute – Episode #4

Hino 300 721 – Hino updated their 300 Series in mid-2020 and the new models are available in Standard Single Cab and Wide Single Cab and Wide Crew Cab configurations as well as a range of engine options, including a Hybrid and a true Automatic transmission.


Hino 300 721 Wide Cab exterior front qtr Amongst the multitude of variants is the sports version of trucks, the 721 Wide body, which we drove recently and really enjoyed the combination of extra power and torque as well as the handling.

The key to the 721 is the five litre diesel engine with an impressive 153Kw of power and 600Nm of torque, matched to the six-speed double overdrive true automatic transmission, 6.5 tonne Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) with a towing capacity of 3.5 tonne.

This gives a 10T GCM that is very appealing in the light truck market.

Other key features are

  • Revised dash
  • New multimedia unit with a 6.5inch touch screen and
  • Class leading safety through the Hino SmartSafe safety system

While the 300 series comes in a multitude of variants, this is actually my pick as it provides effortless power and torque combined with the wide body and you can opt for the longer wheel base.

At around $69,000 plus the usual costs the 300 Series 721 Wide body is actually really good value
