Above on the page there're some Service PDF Manuals for UD Trucks.
The abbreviation UD Trucks has been placed on truck grilles since the 1950s.
The fact is that then the progenitor of the current Nissan Diesel, Minsei, bought a license from the German company Krupp (which was already an old and reputable truck manufacturer in those days) to produce two-stroke diesel engines called Uniflow Diesel.
Then the owner changed, the engines changed, but according to tradition, the trucks continued to carry this reduction.
And in 2010, the brand officially changed its name.
The abbreviation remained untouched, only it was deciphered in a new way, as Ultimate Dependability.
A few words about UD Quon himself: this is also a well-known name that comes from Japanese manga comics.
The first truck with this name was shown at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2010.
It replaced his predecessor of the heavy class with the strange name Big Thumb.
The first UD Quon was distinguished by a new cab with a completely redesigned interior and was equipped with an Escot robotic gearbox (Easy, safe, controlled transmission).
Trucks with a gross weight of 16-26 tons are represented by a wide range: from 4x2 tractors to four-axle singles, popular in Japan.
Engines, in-line GH11 and GH13, are nothing more than diesels from the Volvo concern, with power from 350 to 500 hp.
Actually, the main difference between the novelty is intended to be an updated appearance in a corporate style.
The new UD Quon is somewhat reminiscent of the last Volvo FH, but with slanted Japanese headlights.
But this is not entirely new either: a similar look has been tested on the UD Quester series, which has been produced since 2013.
The fact is that this medium-heavy truck is designed exclusively for export Asian markets, is produced at the company's Thai plant and is unknown in Japan itself.
