Hyundai's HD45 GT And HD78 GT Carry A Lightweight Engine With A Heavyweight Punch

“There’s no replacement for displacement,” that’s a long-held adage in the automotive industry and one that’s now broken even when it comes to commercial vehicles like trucks. It takes a maverick to take a different path, and in this case, Hyundai’s the one doing the trailblazing.

From Hyundai Trucks and Buses Philippines, the official distributor of Hyundai commercial vehicles in the country, comes the newest additions to the HD line: the HD45 GT and HD78 GT—both powered by a 2.9-liter engine outfitted with the Korean automaker’s common rail turbocharged diesel or CRDi technology.

So, what’s special about this engine? Things start with a lightweight design that’s enough to provide the power you need, so it doesn’t add to the unnecessary load on the vehicle.

Because it’s turbocharged, this 2.9-liter diesel engine capably churns out maximum power output of 160 horsepower, equivalent to 55.34 horsepower per liter of displacement, and a pulling power of 392 Nm of torque or 135.7 Nm per liter.

So, whether the job requires hauling, driving long distances, or driving uphill with cargo in tow, trust the HD45 GT and HD78 GT to handle them confidently, thanks to a lightweight powerplant that could yield sufficient power and torque per liter of engine displacement that won’t leave your jobs wanting, and so move your business reliably, every time.

Another plus of the Hyundai CRDi diesel engine’s turbocharging function is there’s less strain and effort required from the engine to produce power that can handle punishing drives and heavy cargo. This means savings for your business in the long run because it’s able to generate the necessary torque to move the vehicle at low rpms, thus, minimizing premature wear and tear on the engine and preventing major (and expensive) repairs, as well as losses that may be incurred when any number of your trucks needs to stop operation as a result of these activities.

Finally, the 2.9-liter engine of the Hyundai HD series trucks is fuel efficient. It optimizes fuel consumption by delivering just right amount of fuel at any given time. Thanks to this, the HD45 GT and HD78 GT lets you achieve your desired mileage—of course, factoring in road conditions and your driving habits, which also affect your fuel consumption.

So, if you’re on the lookout for the right truck to move your new business venture, or thinking of re-fleeting, consider Hyundai’s HD45 GT or HD78 GT. You’ll be surprised at how these light-duty trucks can pack a punch.
