Unimog Part of a Legend

Unimog Those behind it. Those who use it. Those who love it. Heroes. Dedicated to work.

Many legends are born out of hard times; the Unimog is no different. Built in the aftermath of World War II, the Unimog was the brilliant idea of a former head of aeroengine design and was constructed to take on the toughest tasks from the very beginning. Created to go anywhere and complete any job easily, the first Unimog rolled off the production line in 1948.  Earning its badge in 1953, the Mercedes star would sit proudly on the front of the Unimog S from 1955 to 1980 as it supported the armed forces and took explorers on new adventures. 

As more people discovered what this workhorse could do, new models were developed to suit different challenges. The bigger, better 406 series came in 1963, with the 425 series taking on the heavy-duty work from 1965. Between 1985 and 1996 the Unimog got its reputation as a master of all tasks, with the 408 and 419 series built to support local authorities back home. Today, new technologies such as a Euro VI engine, torque tube driveline and VarioPilot mean the latest Unimog models can take on anything modern businesses can throw at it. Whatever the task or terrain, a ‘can-do attitude’ still lies at the very heart of every Unimog. A true icon. A true legend.
