How has Euro 6 to revise the Mercedes-Benz Atego truck? Ian Norwell reports.

Light/medium truck GVW: tonnes Engines: 5.1-litre; 177PS, 211PS, 231PS and 238PS, 272PS, 299PS

In the three years, Daimler has been on a product offensive no other, with a complete of the range. Starting at the top, have now reached the smallest of trucks, the Atego.


Even though the death of the 7.5 truck has been over-reported for years, its popularity is diminishing fleet operators. They are deciding to avoid the administrative of operating a truck at all, by below the 3.5-tonne weight and taking a big cube van, or moving higher up the weight in the search for increased productivity.

Either way, this weight has been the heartland of the since its launch in 1998. It has been one of the most popular with European truck with one in three of the 6.5t-16t going to that single in 2012. With weight an issue for this truck, the of taking on all the added EGR (Exhaust Gas emissions control equipment has an issue for production engineers. they’ve done exceptionally to escape with a modest gain of between 50kg and on the 7.5-tonne and 12-tonne chassis

How new is it?

The new tag is more than justified although the body-in-white cab structure unchanged; doors, front and grille are new, as is the interior and the work station. With new 6 engines and new gearboxes, yes, call it a new truck.

The technology we already seen in Mercedes’ truck engines is used too. The added weight of the package has been mitigated new, lighter designs of springs, fuel tanks and other details.

But the big news is that an AMT (Automated Transmission) is available in the Atego at The transmission has previously represented too a percentage of the chassis price, but of scale within Daimler now make it a realistic proposition. In weight class, an AMT will more benefits to the driver further up the weight range, so it be widely welcomed. Fleet in the rental sector will breathe a sigh of relief as it put an end to arguments about who pays for a worn clutch.

It comes with the fuel-saving coasting function, and manual are still available as options.

The two new engines, the OM934 4-cylinder and the OM936 6-cylinder, 7.7-litre, seven power outputs them and improved torque The smaller engine offers 156PS and 231PS, with the unit offering from to 299PS.

New to Atego’s engines are two overhead camshafts, a cross-flow head, ignition pressure of than 200 bar, a common-rail with an injection pressure of up to bar, and an adjustable exhaust They may be small engines by standards, but they have the technological advances of Mercedes’ truck engines and packed all into a smaller space. new bespoke telematics packages, the of a 5% boost in fuel economy and the functionality of the automated transmissions, the Atego looks set to at least its leading share of this in Europe.

Combining a familiar cab with revisions, new engines and an automated option will help to the Atego fresh and high on choice lists.
