The 5-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine

The GH5E delivers fuel-efficient daily duty work for a wide range of applications.

  • Efficient output and high torque allows for engine ‘downsizing’ without compromises.

  • Power/torque: 180 hp/750 Nm, 210 hp/825 Nm, 240 hp/900 Nm* (Euro-3/*Euro-4).

  • Modern and fully electronically controlled common rail engines operate with extreme precision.

  • Computer-controlled injection, fuel quantity and atomization are finely controlled for varying situations, and for each cylinder, giving outstanding fuel consumption and low emissions.

The 8-liter 6-cylinder diesel engine

The GH8E offers excellent and powerful performance, ideal for construction work and for transporting large and heavy loads.

  • Strong power combined with low operating costs through good fuel efficiency, reduced maintenance and long service intervals.

  • Power/torque: 250 hp/950 Nm, 280 hp/1,050 Nm (Euro-3/Euro-4).

  • Modern and fully electronically controlled common rail engines operate with extreme precision.

  • Computer-controlled injection, fuel quantity and atomization are finely controlled for varying situations, and for each cylinder, giving outstanding fuel consumption and low emissions.


Automatic transmission

The optional automatic transmission knows the best gear to engage in any situation and allows for quicker yet efficient and optimal cruising speeds. That means more trips per day and a boost to overall productivity.

  • Automatic transmissions available for all variants.

  • Correct gear for any driving situation ensures optimum engine rpm for best fuel efficiency.

  • Direct coupling “lock up” function for enhanced fuel efficiency and performance.


  • Narongsak Sermsuk

    At Nanon, our culture is to focus on the wellbeing of our drivers. We care about them and therefore driver fatigue management is one of our top priorities. When UD launched its Croner, which offers an automatic version, we found our answer. It is just excellent! Since we have had UD trucks in our fleet, we have seen our cross-country operations become more efficient. Their addition has improved not only the quality of our service, but also the image of our company.

Fuel coaching

The best way to improve driving behavior is to get coaching in real time.

  • All Croner models are equipped with a built-in fuel coach, an onboard solution clearly displayed at the center of the instrument cluster, giving instructions in real time.

  • Fuel coaching improves driving behavior by prompting driver to use optimal revs and reduce unnecessary acceleration.


Cruise control

Cruise control reduces driver workload on longer journeys and helps to reduce fuel consumption by maintaining a constant speed.
