Scott Mowatt, 31, and Paisley Bates, 26, who were both from Arbroath, died after the vehicle went through the parapet of a bridge and fell down a steep slope.
A second man was taken to hospital with serious injuries after the crash in the early hours of Sunday.
An investigation into the incident is continuing.
A Police Scotland spokesman said both families were "understandably upset by their sudden loss."
