Hino FG8JP7A Review
Hino FG8JP7A Overview
The Hino FG8JP7A belongs to the more premium and a slightly more load carrying capacity version lineup of the medium-duty trucks from Hino in the Philippines. The Hino FG8JP7A is a 16 tonner, 6-wheeled, 9.3-footer medium duty truck which is sold in just one variant with the sole color option of white in the Philippines.
Hino FG8JP7A Interior
The overall interior cabin of the Hino FG8JP7A does not look as contemporary as how the truck manages to look on the outside. However, the overall layout of the truck’s cabin feels simple and easy to the eyes and has all of its controls well within easy reach.
The large four-spoke basic steering wheel along with the regular looking dials for the rectangular instrument console make up for a very bare-bones driver’s cockpit. The curved housing for the center console looks huge and wide and comes with a multiple number of components, with its left half having a 2-DIN audio system and manual AC controls stacked one over the other and the right half having three rectangular storage spaces stacked in a vertical manner. This entire combination of the housing has two sleek and vertically laid AC vents, with the entire housing finished in a theme of silver. The co-passenger side of the dashboard has two covered glove boxes with a nicely carved small storage cavity in between of them.
Hino FG8JP7A Exterior
The Hino FG8JP7A is one aggressive looking truck, which has got a wide and bulky looking front end which tries to make this truck look much larger than what it actually is.
The large front end of the Hino FG8JP7A has its half of the fascia covered by the huge front windshield, which has rounded edges and curved lower surface and gets a long grab handle just below the lower middle of it. This grab handle comes with mounts for opposite direction windscreen wipers on its either sides. Also, the upper and lower edges of the sides of the front windscreen have long mounts for rearview mirrors.
The sporty looking front fascia of the Hino FG8JP7A has three thick horizontal slats, with the two of them on the front apron and one of them extended to the front bumper, and all of them have broad tooth-shaped extensions on their corners. The uppermost slat has a large Hino logo in the middle of it.
The front bumper looks wide and muscular, with the corner L-shaped extensions having the main headlamps. These headlamps come with round fog lamps just below them and large trapezoidal turn indicators placed above them on the side edges of the front apron.
The side profile of the cab of the Hino FG8JP7A has a trapezoidal side window with rising up design for the window waistline and an antenna placed above the right window. There is a wraparound trapezoidal design carve on the door panel, besides which there is the blacked outdoor handle. The turn indicators are mounted on the bottom of the door panels, just above the footrest besides the wheel arch.
Hino FG8JP7A Ride & Handling
The Hino FG8JP7A is equipped with semi-elliptical leaf springs with shock absorbers at both the front as well as rear, which do fulfil their purpose of giving a heavy-duty load carrying capacity to it. The air controlled brakes are responsible for halting duties of the Hino FG8JP7A.
Hino FG8JP7A Engine & Fuel Consumption
The Hino FG8JP7A sources its thrust from a 7.4-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine, which is paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox. With the maximum power output of 238 PS and a peak torque output of 716 Nm, the engine might feel low on paper by the specs, but it is actually quite a torquey motor with a punchy mid-range. The Hino FG8JP7A has a claimed top speed of 104 kmph.
Hino FG8JP7A Braking & Safety
The Hino FG8JP7A is equipped with the sole essential inclusion of ABS, apart from the bare basics like three-point seat belts for all the three seats of the cabin, side-impact beams and a lockable cabin.
Hino FG8JP7A Verdict
Despite belonging to the upper spectrum of medium-duty trucks, the Hino FG8JP7A, with its large and torquey engine as well as bulky looking profile, creates a strong impression of a full-size truck, which is further enhanced by its large dimensions.
