Mercedes-Benz Unimog Trucks For Sale

3 Average

One of the manufacturer’s more unique-looking trucks, the Unimog stands out from the crowd of heavy-duty trucks. The main reason for that is every model is four-wheel drive, making them perfect for use as military vehicles. For civilian use, they’re just as handy, especially as tippers and pickup trucks on busy construction sites and are known for being as powerful as they look.

The most recent models come in three varieties – the smaller U20, the medium-sized 405 series and, at the higher end of the scale, the 437 series, known as the UHN. The most powerful of the lot comes with a diesel engine providing a whopping 280bhp. Most models both old and new tend to come with manual transmission, although some automatic models are available.

New 2013 model UnimogThe Unimog is, as you might expect, not the fastest truck going. The U300, U400 and U500 models have a top speed of 56mph. However, the power is sufficient enough to lug around a significant payload, ranging from 156bhp to 286bhp. The newer models come complete with BlueTec, which reduces particulate emissions and improves fuel economy.

Typically, when buying a newer Unimog, you’re likely to have just the one cab type to choose from. Despite looking small on the inside, the cab does provide panoramic views from the front, while newer versions have been ergonomically-designed for maximum comfort.

Arguably the greatest asset possessed by the Unimog is its off-road ability. Equipped with chunky off-road tyres, it has been built for some of the more difficult jobs that truck drivers tend to do, especially when driving on sand or rocky terrain.

Payload capacity tends to vary between models. The larger ones can be expected to carry several tonnes, while the majority of Unimogs tend to weigh around 7.5 tonnes including attachments.
