Need for greater payload

Maximizing your resources equates to ensuring productivity and efficiency on every transport assignment. Every truck in your fleet should operate at its capacity. New Quester's optimized tare weight and driveline have significantly reduced the truck’s weight, allowing you to transport more on every trip.

Optimized tare weight

Transport more with New Quester. When combined with a powerful driveline, lighter tare weight offers the possibility to transport more cargo on longer distances.



Optimized driveline and robust manual transmission

The 8-liter and 11-liter engines are powered by UD Trucks’ advanced technology and combine reliability with top class performance. Delivering high torque from low revs with flat torque curves.

New Quester models come with a choice of reliable and durable, 9-speed and 12-speed manual transmission, that are able to cope with the toughest demands in various operation conditions.


ESCOT - automated manual transmission

With key components made of aluminium, ESCOT automated manual transmission contributes to New Quester's low weight for higher payload. By choosing the right gear, ESCOT delivers efficient, productive driving with high average speeds and low operating costs.

The PWR+ mode on ESCOT makes construction assignments productive with increased power and high running performance in tough conditions. It features a rock loose mode for quick escape when stuck in slippery and muddy conditions.



Seamless fleet control

UD Telematics is a high-tech wireless communications system that helps your fleet towards greater productivity. It integrates a host of features designed to support you and your business. The new easy-to-use UD Telematics mobile app makes 24/7 fleet management convenient and simple.


More ratios with new axle

Additional ratios on the new single reduction axles allow better flexibility in optimizing the driveline for your application.



Transmission retarder

This helps New Quester improve productivity by making journeys faster. The retarder is coordinated with UD Trucks’ Extra Engine Brake and maintains a steady speed while travelling downhill without using service brakes.
