UD's new CVG driver's seat offers a 7-position adjustable seat damper. Add a headrest 80mm higher, and height, tilt, seat cushion slide and lumbar adjustments and you have one of the best, most comfortable seats available.
UD's new GH7, 7 litre, 6 cylinder common rail variable injection turbo diesel improves fuel economy by approximately 10%. Horsepower and torque increases to 180kW / 716Nm or 206kW / 883Nm - 7% and 8% more power, and 4% and 11% more torque respectively over the outgoing model. Add SCR and 30,000* km service intervals, and you've got a clean, efficient, and worry free transport solution.
Our Euro 5 chassis uses stronger 550MPa steel (up from 450MPa) for a 22% increase in strength. UD's MK chassis layout will not change until the introduction of Euro 7, and the Euro 6 emissions/exhaust is already packaged into the Euro 5 layout. So, bodies can be transferred from chassis to chassis until at least 2020.
All medium duty models utilise long taper leaf springs at the front of the vehicle, matched to double acting telescopic shock absorbers. There are also multi leaf front spring options for extra heavy duty applications. UD is the only Japanese truck manufacturer to offer the option of either steel leaf or air bag rear suspension across the entire Australian medium duty range. All MK models can be optioned with Hendrickson HAS200 rear air suspension.
Easy Hill Start (EHS) is standard fit for MK 11250 and MK 11280 manual models. This ensures a smooth and safe start on steep inclines by applying the vehicle brakes automatically and releasing them on take off. This also reduces clutch wear and prevents the possibility of the truck rolling backwards.
Option of the Allison 5 speed automatic is available. Perfect for metro delivery, stop/start operations, tow trucks, and tipper applications. Oil change intervals are available up to 240,000 km. Allison transmissions are proven reliable and worry free. Operators and drivers love them.
