UD Truck's latest generation heavy duty power plants are among the cleanest on the market thanks to UD Trucks SCR technology.These engines meet and exceed the latest ADR 80/03 (Euro 5) emission standard. UD Trucks is the first truck manufacturer in the world to introduce SCR technology to its vehicles.
All GW models utilise long, taper leaf springs at the front of the vehicle mated to telescopic double acting shock absorbers, while at the rear there are two basic suspension options: UD heavy Duty 6 rod is a six rod trunion suspension with superior articulation. Hendrickson air bag is offered with standard, road-friendly suspension.
Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) enable drivers to maintain steering control under severe braking conditions in emergency or low traction conditions. UD engineers have adopted an Electronic Brake System (EBS) controlling ABS and Anti Slip Regulation (ASR) traction control. ASR maintains control of the truck in marginal traction by minimising wheel spin. The systems act in unison ensuring control and steering is maintained in the most testing conditions.
FUPS is designed to ensure the safety features fitted to passenger cars, such as air bags and crumple zones, are deployed during a collision with a heavy vehicle. While providing a boost for the trucks safety, the FUPS increases the GVM of the truck by an extra 500kg, benefiting efficiency and productivity. All Quon & Condor cabs meet the stringent ECE-R29 test requirements
