Reduced fuel consumption
Atego

Reduced fuel consumption

The lower the fuel consumption, the lower the overall costs.

The Atego makes extremely efficient use of fuel. Because the lower the fuel consumption, the lower the overall costs.

The design of the Atego and Arocs has been optimised down to the finest details in the interests of reduced drag. From the bumper via the corner panelling to the roof – everything contributes to a low level of aerodynamic drag and thus to reduced fuel consumption. In addition, MirrorCam installed in conjunction with the optional multimedia cockpits91 can reduce the Arocs's fuel consumption by up to 1.5%. Optionally available aerodynamic body parts can further reduce fuel consumption. The optionally available tyre pressure monitoring system91 contributes to reduced rolling resistance, thereby also contributing to low fuel consumption.

Advantages at a glance.

  • Complete Euro VI engine range: Two displacement classes, seven output ratings from 115 kW (156 hp) to 220 kW (299 hp)
  • Low fuel consumption thanks to economical, efficient engines and short shift times
  • Practically-oriented transmission
  • Fuel-efficient auxiliary consumers
  • Sophisticated aerodynamics

A broad selection of job-matched rear axle ratios and transmissions also contributes to reduced fuel consumption. Short shift times and economical auxiliary consumers such as on-demand compressed air control and the power steering pump additionally help to reduce fuel consumption.

Engine output range. The economical Euro VI engines for the Atego are available in two displacement classes and with seven power output ratings, from 115 kW (156 hp) to 220 kW (299 hp). We offer the Arocs with Euro VI engines in four displacement classes and with 18 power output ratings, from 175 kW (238 hp) to 460 kW (625 hp).

All Euro VI engines boast low fuel consumption. Fuel-saving drive programs, intelligent auxiliary consumers and the sophisticated aerodynamics also contribute to low fuel consumption. The enhanced Predictive Powertrain Control system additionally supports a particularly efficient, fuel-saving driving style on board the Arocs. And in conjunction with the optionally available multimedia cockpits, the new MirrorCam91 provides for a further improvement in aerodynamics. This means additional fuel savings.

The maintenance-free Hydraulic Auxiliary Drive combines the advantages of all-wheel drive and the classic drive system. It offers additional traction when needed – and adds barely any weight on long trips. Hydraulic Auxiliary Drive is up to 350 / 500 kilograms lighter than engageable / permanent all-wheel drive. In addition, there is no synchronous drive axle. This reduces fuel consumption by up to 6 / 8 % in comparison to engageable / permanent all-wheel drive.
