It is neither sleek in design nor fast in speed, yet the Mercedes-Benz Unimog is among one of the most recognizable road, or in its case, off-road, vehicles. A flagship in any military logistic fleet and headliner to humanitarian relief efforts worldwide, the versatile 4×4 truck has just gotten better with the introduction of the U4023 & U5023 models. With a product range now up to ten different editions, the new Unimog features a new set of LED headlights, improved daytime running lights, and a front-mounted camera monitor. With the re-positioning of the engine further back into the cab, the interior space widens to provide more room. The newly arranged cab also gives a panoramic view to the driver in addition to the new air conditioning system, steering wheel column, and dashboard.
Another important change is the powerplant specifications. Now compliant with the strict Euro VI emission standard, the four or six-cylinder Mercedes BlueEfficiency Power engines can produce from 156 horsepower all the way to 354 horsepower. And did we mention its ability to climb a 45-degree slope angle and 34-degree ramp angle, a side tilt of 38 degrees, plus a tire inflation system? All of this makes the Unimog as extreme as they come in the world of off-road trucking.
