Quon GK 2017

The GK 17 420 is a workhorse that won't let you down. Ideal for vehicle transport, single trailer metro delivery, GK provides operators with an efficient, proven and tested truck that can be trusted to perform.


Introduced at the Brisbane Truck Show in 2013, our new 2013 11 litre Quon range has been fitted with the latest engine from our group. This hi tech engine is the latest in a new line of smaller capacity high performance engines which have been designed with high economy and low emissions in mind. This new engine has one of the highest power to weight ratios in its class and outstanding power per litre of capacity. Up to 60,000km service intervals are available.

These engines have been tested to the extreme by our UD engineers in Japan. They are built for our rugged Australian conditions which UD Trucks are famous, and this continues the UD tradition of Ultimate Dependability as always.


SCR technology eliminates 95% of Nitrous Oxides (NOx) and almost all diesel particulate matter.  All of UD's SCR equipped heavy duty trucks are some of the cleanest available in the Australian market. Importantly, UD's technology will remain fundamentally the same through the Euro 6 update.

Automated Manual Transmission (AMT)

All new 11 litre Quon models launched at the Brisbane truck show in 2013 are fitted standard with the latest transmission offered by UD Trucks Australia. The new ESCOT V is a 12 speed, fully automated transmission with 2 pedal operation. Accompanying this transmission as standard across the 11 litre Quon range, is our tried and proven Easy Hill Start (EHS) and our updated Electronic Braking System (EBS) This transmission provides 12 forward gears and 2 reverse.
