Versatility on its own does not make for a reliable business truck, it has to be resilient, rugged, and capable. Luckily for business owners, Hyundai has got two solutions for their business needs, and these are the HD45 GT and the HD78 GT, trucks that Hyundai says are capable of handling any task thrown at them.

The HD45 GT offers a loading space of 15 feet (ft) for the medium wheelbase (MWB) and 18 feet for the long wheelbase (LWB). You can rely on this model to transport cargo weighing up to 2,130 kilograms (kg) (MWB) and 2,090 kg (LWB).

For those requiring even greater capacity, the HD78 GT is the perfect choice. It features a loading space of 15ft (MWB), 18ft (LWB), and an impressive 19.5ft for the extra-long wheelbase (ELWB). With these capabilities, this model can accommodate loads weighing up to 5,215 kg (MWB), 4,844 kg (LWB), and 4,362 kg (ELWB).

HD45 Engine

These two exceptional trucks can effortlessly transport heavy cargo over long distances and conquer uphill terrains without skipping a beat. Their impressive performance is made possible by their state-of-the-art 2.9-liter turbocharged Common Rail Direct Injection (CRDi) diesel engine. This engine is meticulously engineered to be lightweight yet incredibly powerful, delivering a maximum power output of 160 horsepower and a torque of 392 Nm. With this advanced engine technology, these trucks promise to provide a seamless and reliable driving experience, regardless of load or terrain.

Furthermore, during periods of rising fuel costs, the Hyundai’s CRDi technology incorporated into this engine minimizes the strain required to generate lots of power. Hyundai says the addition of this technology,  not only provides you with the desired mileage but also reduces fuel consumption, ensuring efficiency while simultaneously decreasing premature wear and tear on the vehicle. That means operators can enjoy cost-effective and sustainable performance without compromising on power or longevity.
