Built to be safe and secure in the race against time
UD Trucks leaves nothing to chance and that includes safety. Croner’s active and passive safety features protect your company’s precious resources – the people, the fleet, and the customer’s cargo – as well as the surrounding traffic.
Superior braking performance
S-cam air brakes with automatic slack adjustment provide effective stopping power, anti-lock brake system with electronic brakeforce distribution are standard with rear leaf suspension and optional with air leaf suspension. This system makes Croner future-proof, as ABS will be a legal safety requirement in many markets in the near future.
“Croner is very powerful.The brakes are great, when you put your foot on the pedal you know the truck is going to stop. And the steering is very soft. The cab is high and offers good vision and comfortable seating. This truck made me feel safe.”
Piet Baloyi, Fleet supervisor, Vital Distribution Solution
Clear illumination for all situations
Superior visibility with standard headlamps featuring optional height adjustment, optional fog lights. Daytime running lamps are also available as an option for Croner. They increase the visibility of the vehicle for the benefit of other road users.
Stable handling platform
Croner is designed with excellent handling and stability that is further improved with an optional front anti-roll bar. Front stabilizer is a key feature for overall chassis stability, especially in superstructures with a high centre of gravity, such as mixers.
Strong and durable steel frame
Croner’s steel frame provides strength and safety, while the reinforced cabin has been developed under strict deflection, crash and durability targets, and is designed to meet Japanese safety requirements of a flat barrier impact at 40km/h.
Meet safety standards
All variants of Croner are available with ECE R93 and ECE R58.02 compliant front and rear underrun protection as an option, effectively protecting other vehicles and road users. Seat and seat belt anchorage meet the ECE R17 and ECE R14 European test regulations.
Dual-setting speed limiter
Croner has a dual speed limiter function:
- Default speed limit: Based on country regulation, it is set in the factory and cannot be modified to exceed regulation speed.
- Selective speed limit: Through IC (Instrument Cluster) – the speed limit function can be set by the customer to any speed less than the default speed. This setup is password protected. This will help to reduce accidents caused by excessive speed and reduce excess fuel consumption.
