New Mercedes debuts to the cheers of little everywhere [w/video]

New set-up for and Econic

Strong new image for unique concepts Unimog and Cleaner, more efficient, powerful

— BlueEfficiency engine generation with and six cylinder engines from 115 kW hp) and 260 kW (354 hp)

— Powerful and acceptable: Thoroughly renewed state-of-the-art drive technology, concept and cab

— Unimog: New synergetic traction drive new standards in competition

— Up to 4 percent lower fuel

— Econic: same despite Euro VI

World from Mercedes-Benz Special A Unimog product range ten new models at one go – from the Unimog U 216 to the U 5024 – and 2 and 3-axle versions for the low-entry specialists vehicle the era of Euro VI engines also for vehicles. All this is combined an appreciable increase in performance, and easy operation. Despite the arising from the Euro VI standards involving additional and an increased volume of 120 litres, it has possible to retain and improve the advantages of the two vehicle product

As the new Europe-wide Euro VI emission will be valid from 1 2014, Mercedes-Benz is rounding off its of commercial vehicles including the Antos, Arocs and Actros by the two special vehicle product Unimog and Econic to comply the new regulations. The new engines have up to 90 fewer exhaust gas and particulate emissions than those up to now.

New structures for the Unimog range

In the new set-up for the Unimog carriers, the Unimog U 216 and U 218 replace the Unimog U 20 as compact entry-level and are getting closer to the versions stronger engines now known as U U 423, U 430, U 527 and U 530. the first number denotes the (for instance 4 corresponds to the Unimog U 400), the following two stand for the first two numbers of performance, for example 23 for 230 hp. They are all launched with, amongst things, a completely redesigned cab, new work and power systems as well as synergetic drive which allows over from manual to hydrostatic transmission while and all of these innovations make an difference to the efficiency of the Unimog.

The mobile off-road Unimog U und U 5000 have also given a more advanced in important details and are now known the reference numbers U 4023 and U

For the Econic – the 2 and 3-axle chassis now as 4 2, 6 4 and 6 2/4 with electronically steered and trailing axles – the concept of the cab has now been given more with a great number of ergonomic innovations. In addition, it is more cost-effective as it has reduced its consumption and repair and maintenance However the payload remains the despite the Euro VI.

Facing the future efficiently BlueEfficiency Power

Two BlueEfficiency model series engines radically new designs ensure the Unimog complies with VI emission standards and is also more efficient especially using implements as here output is available. The Econic has been given two engines this generation: engine OM 934 and OM 936 with three 4-cylinder and two versions and performances ranging 115 kW (156 hp) to 260 kW (354 hp) with capacities of 5.1 litres and 7.7 litres. The drive units combine low consumption with extremely exhaust gas and ensure that the is on the road altogether more despite the great amount of invested in its construction to ensure it complies with Euro VI.

For the it has been possible to achieve up to percent lower fuel The engines already successfully in the Antos and Atego are very with their improved and torque and clearly increased over the whole transmission Despite the Euro VI the fuel of the Unimog has also been

High-tech drive units a state-of-the-art engine generation

The new injectors with ten-hole provide the best possible for every working situation. new, long-stroke engines cooled exhaust gas recirculation and a engine output of up to 33.8 (46 hp/l) are among the most diesel units. The new 5.1 litre version also produces a top torque of 650 Nm for the entry-level model U 216 with 115 kW (156 hp) which constant over the whole of the transmission range from to 1600 rpm.

The six-cylinder a powerful performance

The performance of the big 7.7 litre in-line 6-cylinder OM 936 directly on the heels of the extremely four-cylinder version. It is used in the U 427 and U 430 as well as the U 527 and U 530 and here for both with 200 kW (272 hp) or 220 kW (299 This means that the has been given top-level The best torque result at 1200 Nm for the 1200 to 1600 range.

The Econic has been with 6?cylinder engines an output of 220 kW (299 hp) and 260 kW (354

Great importance was also to economy of space when with the exhaust gas cleaning required by Euro VI which into force on 1 January This was a task which the designers with demanding considering the compact chassis of the vehicles and also the low-entry of the Econic. In addition to the recirculation of the gas inside the engine, cleaning the gas also involves a system the oxidation catalytic converter, a particulate matter filter, injection and an SCR catalytic converter in a series.

New set-up for and Econic

Unimog U 4023 and U Setting standards for off-road

— Perfection off-road, handling with centrally-positioned

— New BlueEfficiency Power VI engines with higher and higher torque

— concept with torsionally frame, torque tubes and springs retained

— and reliable, many details

— New engine power with increased applications

The mobile off-road Unimog its new reference numbers U 4023 and U as the follow-up models for the U 4000 and U is now more environmentally acceptable and but still just as mobile off the as its predecessors and even stronger – means better all round. It is with the new four-cylinder BlueEfficiency BlueTec 6 engine with an of 170 kW (230 hp) and a strong torque of 900 Nm. The transmission has been improved and so that the gear changing are shorter with an increased span. In future the gears be changed using the pitman arm on the column and this also the electronic quick reverse (EQR). As up to now, there are forward and six reverse gears as well as the optional crawler for off-road use with a speed between 2.5-35 km/h.

The difference between the two big Unimog lies in their axles and i.e. their axle and the gross vehicle weights is a maximum of 10.3 tonnes for the U and 14.5 tonnes for the U 5023.

cab with a short bonnet reworked

This cab is first – it has left its mark on the appearance of the mobile off-road Unimog 1974. The designing engineers confronted with the challenging of installing technology complying Euro VI and they succeeded by the engine one metre further under the cab and this is now the core of the new In comparison with its predecessor, the new cab has lengthened by 120 mm and is slightly higher – and by the transmission controls from the console to the pitman arm on the steering there is much more in the interior of the cab.

This cab has been upgraded with its new The multifunction steering wheel, steering column, pitman arm multifunction touch-keys and instrument with a large display as as a new stronger heating and ventilation provide the very best for the driver. The central tire system Tirecontrol Plus has redesigned so that the correct pressure for the prevailing conditions can be simply and easily in the display the pre-programmed modes road , and bad surface . From the outside the design of the radiator and the new bumpers modern headlamps show at the glance that here is a new generation of the Unimog on the job.

Also the access to the cab is completely new easy to master and safe two or three depending on what the requires.

The altered position of the also allows power to be directly from the engine an engine-driven PTO so that implements can be run of the driving situation unlike the PTOs which are still

Perfect for off-road operations

The big of the extremely mobile off-road such as its outstanding handling tough terrain remain and in individual points its strengths been improved. In the new model, the of the frame is now further back due to the position of the engine and altogether the has a lower centre of gravity retaining its high ground which is extremely important for operations. As both frame and cross members are welded, guarantees the extremely good flexibility of up to 600 mm when driving The axle articulation of up to 30° is made by the torque tube technology with the coil springs by the torque tube and the torque to the transmission. Portal axles, the low of gravity and extremely good of approach and departure (at the front at the rear 51°), and ramp (34°) as well as its slope ability (45°) all go to make the mobile off-road Unimog what it is – and in addition there is its ability of a maximum of 1200 mm as as its side tilting angle of

Driving in extreme situations is by the engageable all-wheel drive, differential locks and the central inflation system.

Unimog have a long life and are robust and reliable. The completely frame and the enclosed parts of the stand for the claim that the is able to stand up to great and strain. The axles are reinforced, all power units and equipment are clad or installed in safe – and this is also true for ability within the guaranteed of 1200 mm.

Extreme operations the over

All this shows clearly just why the outstandingly off-road Unimog has such an reputation all over the world. in extreme off-road conditions is the of the day, whether it is fighting fires, for disaster control, operations, pipeline construction, rescuing man and machine and last but not for transporting crews and other – in remote areas where the turn into bad tracks and terrain, that is where the U 4023 and U 5023 are on home

The Unimog is also looked perfectly as far as maintenance, trouble or repairs are concerned as competent Dealers are there to take of the vehicles in over 650 service in more than 130 countries special service packages and services round off the customer

Unimog U 216 to U 530: New powerful implement

— New entry models U 216 and U 218

— Work and power

— World premiere: changeover from driving hydrostatic traction drive to transmission precisely designed for the job

Unimog versatility: Over implements and applications

The product of the Unimog implement carrier in 2000 is now being presented in the generation with a new arrangement and new U 216 and U 218 as entry-level models and the U 318 and U 423 are fitted four-cylinder engines, U 427, U 430 and U 527 as as U 530 have six-cylinder units. As the end of work-intensive design engineering, the implement carriers are now once at the starting block – more environmentally acceptable and cost-effective their predecessors and in addition their typical features strengthened.

New exterior: Panoramic cab a modern design

The panoramic cab itself in a new and modern design. the optical and functional effect of the bonnet is emphasised even by LED lamps including daytime lamps integrated in the bumpers. To visibility, the windscreen wipers now been fitted on the roof the windscreen giving a superb of both road and implements, and even more through the new camera monitor system.

for the Unimog: The front power reveals its powerful technology and implements.

New interior: Operating provides the best working

Multifunction steering wheel, steering column and stronger and cooling system with air flow make both and co-drivers feel happy. The controls have been so that there is now a steering pitman arm to operate driving such as gear changing or brake. The instrument cluster for information is new and has a large, light the joystick for operating implements can be and held in the hand; the uninterrupted of the front implements – which is important when attaching or them – is made safer the monitor and front camera; and all adds up to an appreciable lightening of the s load.

Using the central inflation system Tirecontrol (optional) is now much easier via the as it gives the user the choice pre-programmed modes road , and bad surface .

New work hydraulics – sensitive than ever

The new hydraulics set to precisely and without any jerking movements – with at the time about 30 percent hydraulic performance. This is possible to control the implements sensitively than ever The work hydraulics is completely when working and allows two to be performed at the same time via the

The multifunction keys on the steering and the display allow the output to be The hydraulics works with two whereby Circuit I provides 200 bar pressure with hydraulic oil of 32 l/min, together with II it adds up to an additional 55 l/min up to 240 bar. And here the implement has been improved even as the front power take-off now a performance of a maximum of 160 kW (up to now 150 kW).

New entry models: Unimog U 216 and U 218

New power hydraulics replaces take-off pumps and special body engines

Power VarioPower – for a long time name has been behind the powerful implement drive in the Now it is even more efficient. Two each with 125 litres of flow and 280 bar pressure can perform, if several different kinds of job at the time or one especially sensitive – up to a top performance of 58 kW per circuit. This design replaces pumps to the power take-off or diesel engines, for example for mounted machines and this saves space and weight.

And if the power is not needed, then the Unimog can weight in the vehicle frame – it can be removed from its installation to increase the payload. This new is operated using steering touch-keys and its data can be read in the in the new instrument cluster. The power is available in Unimog models U 318 on.

The new synergetic traction drive

The new hydrostatic traction drive for the implement carrier is also a premiere and it opens up a whole new of possibilities for using implements. The of hydrostatic and manual transmission the driver to change smoothly one mode to the other while Up to now it was necessary to halt briefly changing systems.

The new comfortable can be used to advantage, for instance, mowing grass verges and the is interrupted by a long noise The new hydrostatic drive now allows up to 50 km/h (31 mph) and the hydrostatic has been increased by 20 percent. infinitely variable driving and reduces wear on the clutch and work performance, driving the manual transmission saves because of its increased efficiency.

using the electronic pneumatic shift (EPS), the driver the changeover by pressing the clutch and so the optional automatic electronic control (EAS) to complete the automatically. This new synergetic is easily operated by using the column control switch, joystick or alternatively the accelerator.

implement-carrying design: More a 1000 different possibilities

The of the Unimog implement carrier is In the meantime, more than a different possibilities are registered. manufacturers worldwide work intensively with Mercedes-Benz Trucks at the Wörth plant the Unimog now has its base – to expand the of operations.

The great advantage of the Unimog range from U 216 to U 530 is its ability to use four-fold. There are three points – front, rear and the axles – as well as the space for bodies and equipment on the chassis. The and equipment can be supplied with hydraulically, mechanically and electrically. The of users includes Local the energy sector, forestry agricultural logistics, the construction or road-rail operators, but the list is and includes many others.

it is working at the airport, cleaning parks or clearing snow the mountains, virtually nothing is to the Unimog and that it is exactly makes it unique in the world of vehicles as a versatile implement with the driving qualities of a It also proves its value as a unit with a 40 tonne and its technical top speed of up to 90 km/h (56 is absolutely suitable for motorways.

as top priority

Directional stability, steering and the use of ABS are responsible for the high of safety provided by the Unimog. In the extremely good axle distribution and four same-size have a positive effect on the s handling qualities. And the Unimog its very own standards with the cab. The panoramic front deep drawn down windows and short bonnet a very wide view of and working areas.

What is new is the front camera system a monitor which makes easier for the driver as it shows him the directly in front of the vehicle makes it easier to attach

And last but not least, it is the good mobility of the Unimog which for itself: portal axles, ground clearance, differential single tires and the ability to out of dips (Electronic Quick

As far as servicing, trouble diagnosis or are concerned, the Unimog is well for with over 650 service in more than 130 countries where competent Unimog are ready and waiting with service offers as well as services to round off the entire
