The all-terrain Unimog is equipped with modern and efficient Mercedes-Benz drive system technology. Tested in large-scale series production, the Euro VI engine generation sets standards for its class, taking no half-measures where conserving the environment, economic efficiency and top performance are concerned. The 4-cylinder engine with an output of 170 kW (231 hp) is particularly maintenance-friendly, economical, smooth-running and powerful. It is characterised by its high torque of up to 900 Nm as well as good figures for exhaust emissions, consumption and power-to-weight ratio. 4-valve technology and common rail injection up to 2400 bar further increase efficiency.
The economical engine.
Perfectly coordinated drive system technology.
However, the engine is not only used for propulsion but also for braking: The two-stage decompression engine brake reduces mechanical wear and tear and makes a great contribution to economic efficiency. The exhaust gas aftertreatment system uses BlueTec 6 technology which has already proven its worth in daily use over many millions of kilometres in our heavy-duty mass-production engines. In the exhaust gas aftertreatment unit, the SCR catalytic converter reduces the nitrogen oxides to a minimum. Furthermore, the diesel particulate filter prevents almost any soot particles from escaping.
