The Mercedes-Benz Atego
The Mercedes-Benz Atego takes the DNA from his larger counterparts - The Actros and Antos and compacts into a true midsized specialist vehicle. The Atego can be positioned seamlessly into a variety of industries; whether it be distribution or construction, thanks to its generous 7.5 to 16 t rating and broad scope of body mounting options.
A total of 15 different wheelbase lengths, ranging from 3020 mm to 6260 mm, present a huge array of bodybuilder solutions; working in conjunction with our bodybuilder partner Alloy Bodies, the Atego can be presented to you fully built to support your business requirements.
Following the form of the New Mercedes-Benz truck, the Atego is provided with a fuel-efficient 4- or 6-cylinder Euro VI engine, creating a fuel-efficient, cost-effective and economical yet powerful vehicle.
Powerful, reliable and economical, the new Atego is provided with the same excellent engine technologies as available across the range. Two engine options are available with 7 power ratings from 115 kW (156 hp) to 220 kW (299 hp) each designed to provide high-performance abilities and low fuel consumption; the new Atego boasts a 50% fuel saving compared to its predecessor model.
A true 21st century vehicle, the Atego offers great performance abilities with exceptional economical drive qualities.
Available with a choice of 6-, 8- or 9- speed transmissions and Mercedes Powershift 3; an automated transmission which ensures precise gear selection and short shift times. Select from "power" of "off road" drive modes for ideal driving dynamics.
Available with a powerful engine brake, offering up to 235 kW of braking power, reducing wear on the service brake or with a high-performance engine brake available on select engine variants, offering up to 300 kW of braking power for even greater safety.
