The Hino Dutro is probably the most popular commercial vehicle from Hino that is available for buying within the Sri Lankan market. Known also as the Hino 300, the Hino Dutro is in fact closely related to the highly popular Toyota Dyna truck from Toyota, which is also available for buying in the country. Built as a light duty cargo truck, the Dutro comes with a very powerful engine that is powered using a 4.0 L Diesel, four-cylinder in line, water-cooled locomotive that uses either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission to move its drivetrain. Due to this, the Hino Dutro can produce more than 110 kW of power and around 420 Nm of torque, allowing it to carry a total weight of 7,300 kg on the roads seen in Sri Lanka.
