Light trucks come in all shapes and sizes, built to take on a range of jobs, these are the trucks you call on if you want to mobilize your business. Hyundai presents the HD45 GT, a truck that Hyundai dubbed, a “truck of all trades,” and here are some of the reasons why Hyundai says it is worthy of that title.
First, we’ve got customizability, if a truck is to be a jack of all trades, it has to have the right equipment for the job. Moving to the HD45 GT it’s a truck that is a compact yet surprisingly spacious vehicle. With its medium wheelbase (MWB) variant, owners get a loading space of 14 to 15 ft, while the long wheelbase (LWB) offers an even more impressive 16 to 18 ft. This generous cargo bed provides ample room for advancing business or exploring new ventures. In addition to being a dependable delivery vehicle for various goods such as food, medicine, garments, fresh farm produce, or light construction materials, Hyundai says it can also be transformed into a mobile lifestyle service provider.
Next up, we’ve got driver friendliness, dependable trucks rely on dependable drivers, and the HD45 GT presents a comfortable, and welcoming environment for operators. The cab of the vehicle is designed with comfort in mind, offering a spacious and air-conditioned environment that ensures an adequate ride, particularly during long trips. The seats are ergonomically designed and provide ample comfort, allowing for easy adjustments to achieve a relaxed seating position. Conveniently placed storage compartments within reach can hold essential items for travel, including vehicle documents, maps, water bottles, and hand sanitizers. Furthermore, the door-open angle has been enlarged, tilting up to 87 degrees, facilitating effortless entry and exit.
The third set of things that make the HD45 GT a truck of all trades is its safety features. The HD45 GT features an advanced braking system that combines Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD). To enhance safety while reversing, the truck is equipped with a reverse warning buzzer that emits a constant warning sound, alerting other road users to the vehicle's movement. Additionally, the front under view mirror provides a clearer view of nearby surroundings.
When driving at night or in low-light conditions, the HD45 GT's headlamps are equipped with a leveling device that ensures the road ahead is properly illuminated precisely where and when needed. This feature greatly improves visibility and enhances safety during nighttime driving.
The fourth feature in the HD45 GT’s arsenal is its tough engine. Underneath its lightweight appearance, the HD45 GT has a robust 2.9-liter turbocharged CRDi diesel engine. This compact engine delivers an impressive maximum power of 158 hp and a torque figure of 392 Nm. According to Hyundai, its CRDi diesel tech allows the truck to travel long distances and navigate uphill terrains with heavy cargo effortlessly, without compromising performance.
Capping off the HD45 GT’s list of features are its weight and value for money. Hyundai’s four-wheeler truck has a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 4490 kg, making it exempt from the truck ban. This exemption opens up a ton of opportunities for operators to make more use of the HD45 GT and conduct business more efficiently. To provide owners with peace of mind, the HD45 GT offers a flexible warranty of three years or 200,000 km (whichever comes first). This comprehensive warranty ensures that owners of the HD45 GT receive reliable coverage, allowing operators to save on maintenance expenses and the purchase of parts.
