Efficient technology: High performance – low consumption.

Efficient 4- and 6-cylinder engines that are high on delivery and low on consumption supported by the Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated gearshift which makes driving easier in difficult conditions.

Powerful, reliable, economical – the Atego's Euro VI engines boast low fuel consumption, tractive power and very smooth running. The 4-cylinder inline engines deliver up to 170 kW (231 hp) and peak torque of up to 900 Nm. The 6-cylinder inline engines deliver up to 220 kW (299 hp) and peak torque of up to 1200 Nm.

Advantages at a glance.

  • More fuel-efficient, reliable 4- and 6-cylinder in-line engines with high torque at low engine speeds
  • Two displacement classes, seven output ratings from 115 kW (156 hp) to 220 kW (299 hp)
  • Powerful engine brake, optional High Performance Engine Brake
  • Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated gearshift with “power” or “offroad” driving programs as well as manually selectable driving modes and auxiliary functions for closer orientation to type of application1
  • Various 6-, 8- and 9-speed transmissions for application specific drive configurations

The three-stage, wear-free auxiliary brake is optionally available for even greater safety, offering up to 300 kW of braking power depending on the installed engine variant.

The three-stage brake system offers up to 235 kW of brake power, which comes as standard on vehicles with a permissible gross vehicle weight of 9.5 t or over. This reduces wear on the service brake while enhancing safety and control of the vehicle.

High-torque Euro VI engines. Powerful, reliable, economical – the high-torque 4- and 6-cylinder in-line engines provide the Atego with an excellent foundation for operations in the construction industry.

Superior dynamic response, simple handling and low fuel consumption: The automated gearshift ensures precise gear selection, short shift times, high driving comfort and outstanding economy.

With Mercedes PowerShift 3, additional functions such as direct shifting from forward to reverse and one reverse gear with a high ratio make for easy manoeuvring. The crawler function is particularly convenient when moving off.

In addition to the automated transmission, a manual transmission with pneumatic power-assisted gear shifting is optionally available. It features outstanding ergonomics and extremely precise shifting while requiring only a low shift force.

Customers can order their Atego with “power” or “offroad” driving program irrespective of the model variant. Both driving modes enable a style of driving adapted to the given situation1.
