GK 17 420 Engine

Engines

The Quon is powered by the highly fuel efficient GH11 at 308 kW variations to suit each particular application and market requirement. The high power and torque performance, combined with a flat curve at peak output, delivered by the GH11 engine reduces the amount of shifting required with gears. Extra Engine Brake (EEB) is available as an option which can automatically shift down through gears for more effective engine braking, resulting in easier driving such as long haul downhill highways. The GH11 engine is designed to deliver smooth driving under any driving situation, such as hilly roads, long haul intercity journeys or any type of rough roads. Oil and fuel filters have been designed to be located around the bottom of the engine, all close together for easier maintenance. The filter capacity has been increased for longer intervals between maintenance and servicing. The entire power train has been designed to be more environmentally-friendly and improve fuel efficiency, at levels that clearly exceed that required of Euro5 regulations

Cabin

The Quon GK cabin has been designed for the ultimate in driver comfort and safety, and provides drivers around the world the tools for easier day-to-day operation. The cabin offers a wide field of view, while the solid surrounding provides a sense of security to the driver. This not only allows the driver to focus their concentration on the road, but also reduces fatigue on long-haul journeys.The Quon GK cabin is mounted on a 4-point wide tread air suspension mounting system, which improves cabin stability and enhancing overall driving comfort. The design helps to limit the cabin from rolling when the truck is turning, and the anti nose-dive geometry ensures stability of the cabin even under harsh braking.

Passenger seat and bunk space

The passenger seat can be used either as a normal reclining seat or in the fully flat position to make up part of the bunk, or alternatively in the raised position to provide enough space to change clothes. The bunk space now features greater overhead space, a wider area to lie down and a broader back panel. The bunk is also ADR (Australian Design Rule) 42 approved.
