Optimised performance enhance fuel-efficiency
The GH11 engine is known for combining good torque over a wide rev range with impressive fuel-efficiency. Now we have taken it a step further, fine-tuned and developed a number of components. What you experience is enhanced low-rev torque combined with reduced fuel consumption. And not least, a responsive engine designed to deliver smooth driving in all conditions.
- Fuel-efficient with good driveability
- Enhanced low-rev torque with quick response
- Maximum torque over a wide rev range
Refuel less, run further.
The new Quon leads the way in efficient performance. Our renowned GH11 engine is further developed, resulting in a new level of driveability and fuel efficiency. This is further improved in combination with our class-leading 12-speed ESCOT-V. Now with new extended Eco mode and fine-tuned for even more optimised shift timing, giving you fuel-savings compared to the previous Quon model. For even more power and performance, opt for the GH13 engine.
Increased low-rev torque
The GH11 engine is further improved to provide increased torque under 1000 rpm, resulting in enhanced driveability and better fuel-efficiency.
ESCOT–V – reduce fuel consumption
Our class-leading ESCOT-V is fine-tuned for even easier driving and lower fuel consumption. It quickly and automatically chooses the right gear at all times, a shifting skill not even the best driver can match. It also communicates with the engine, which in turn adjusts revs and engine brake for fast and comfortable gear changing. And above all, it helps reduce fuel consumption compared to the previous Quon model, which in turn reduces ownership cost
UD Extra Engine Brake (UD EEB)
The GH 11 and GH 13 engine brake with UD EEB provides powerful braking that is quick to engage. Improved braking safety results in higher average speeds, especially in hilly landscapes.
Save fuel down hill and while coasting(ESCOT Roll)
The ESCOT-V is equipped with the fuel-saving feature ESCOT Roll. When driving downhill and coasting in auto cruise/Economy ED mode, ESCOT Roll automatically disengages the engine to make use of the truck’s momentum instead of fuel. In the new Quon it’s even further developed with a wider action range to save more fuel.
Easy driving that leads to better fuel efficiency
No clutch, automatic smooth gear changing and advanced auto cruise function. The ESCOT-V not only improves driver performance by reducing the load and stress on the driver. New features such as Economy ED mode with Acceleration Limiter, and Soft Cruise with optimised shift timing, enhance driving comfort and contribute to impressive average fuel economy.
Save fuel with Soft Cruise control
Engage the Economy ED mode when driving the ESCOT-V in auto cruise and you can enjoy both enhanced driver comfort and improved fuel-efficiency. Shift timing and acceleration in hill climbing are optimised for economy driving.
Save more with Acceleration Limiter
The ESCOT-V is optimised to combine easy driving with superior fuel economy. The new Acceleration Limiter in the Economy ED mode is a perfect example on how it’s achieved. It automatically softens acceleration to certain level to improve fuel efficiency.
Nenpioh is your fuel-saving co-pilot
The Nenpioh is a guidance system that gives the driver real-time advice on how to drive more efficiently. With both discreet visual and audio cues, it helps the driver to operate in the engines optimum rev range, improving fuel consumption
