The result underlines the consistently high and convincing quality of the Unimog - quality which has been the cornerstone of the all-rounder's excellent reputation for decades now. The latest model generation of the Unimog also scores highly with a series of prizeworthy selling points.

  • Multifunctional:
    Unimog vehicles are indispensable when it comes to demanding special-purpose applications in off-road terrain. In forestry, in disaster control, on construction sites or in the fire services – the Unimog is a vehicle you can rely on.
  • Cost-effective:
    Thanks to cutting-edge engine technologies with BlueEFFICIENCY Power, the Unimog not only complies with the Euro VI emissions standard but is also particularly easy to maintain and, despite the powerful drive system, delivers impressively low consumption figures.
  • Powerful off-road:
    With its short wheelbase and automated transmission, the Unimog uses its strengths to the full in extreme off-road terrain with sharp drops and narrow gaps. When it then returns to tarmac roads, the tyre pressure control system ensures effortlessly superior on-road driving at speeds of up to 90 km/h.
