Quon CD engine

Engine

The Quon is powered by the highly fuel-efficient GH11 engine, in ranges of 257kW - 302kW 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 that 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 Euro3 regulations.

Cabin

The Quon cabin has been designed for the ultimate in driver comfort and safety, and provides drivers around the wor ld 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 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.

Passive safety

Minimizing damage and injury in the event of an accident is the top priority of everyone within the transportation industry. The Quon takes this responsibility one step further with a host of safety features such as an extremely rigid cabin for improved collision safety. The Quon has achieved the ultimate balance in strength and protection of the occupants, and has increased the stiffness of the entire cabin. Seat belts with pretensioners, side door beams, an impact-absorbing steering wheel and steering column, and even a knee protector, are all included as standard. The Quon is designed for the utmost safety, keeping drivers and the entire fleet safe from risks.

Active safety

UD Trucks strives to prevent accidents from occurring and to ensure that cargo is delivered safely. Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) is installed as standard on all models, which helps shorten the braking distance, improve the braking feel, and extend tire life. The ABS itself is computerized to help control the braking force and prevent the wheels locking up, even under heavy braking on slippery roads in the rain, mud or snow. This means the driver can control the truck to avoid accidents, even if they have to brake suddenly in an emergency. Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) is available as an optional extra for truck tractors and full trailers. ASR features a computer for optimum control of driving force to suit the road conditions to prevent the drive wheels from slipping. Naturally this gives the truck greater manoeuvrability.
