The powertrain

A single driving force

Featuring reliable, high-torque 4 and 6-cylinder engines as well as gearshift systems, transmissions and axles aligned with each application, the Atego delivers particularly economical operation. Three high-performance, weight-optimised and perfectly configured 6-speed transmission systems (optionally available with the Telligent® automated gearshift) enable engine power to be transferred to the road without incurring loss due to friction With the 188 kW (256 hp) and 210 kW (286 hp) engine variants, this task is handled by a hydraulic-pneumatic 9-speed direct-drive transmission. The low-noise, low-maintenance drive axles have a positive effect on fuel consumption. And boasting a large number of different ratios, they deliver optimum drive configurations to handle virtually all applications.
