4-cylinder in-line engine with 4.8 l capacity and 160 kW (218 hp)
To deliver optimum performance, the Euro 4 and Euro 5 engines in the Atego extract the very last drop of power from the fuel fed to them. And they do so with the environment in mind thanks to BlueTec®, the SCR technology from Mercedes-Benz. Their reduced CO2 emissions are unrivalled, for instance, and nitrogen oxide (NOX) and particulate emission levels are also very low. Their outstanding efficiency also stems from the proven Telligent® engine management system, which orchestrates a highly efficient combustion process with low emissions. Even lower fuel consumption can be achieved by opting for the new engine start/stop system. BlueTec® 5 engines boast extremely long service intervals – 60,000 km in short-radius distribution and as much as 100,000 km in light-duty long-distance haulage. In addition, overall repair and maintenance costs are kept low through the use of low-maintenance and maintenance-free components and service fluids, such as the maintenance-free hydraulic transmission fluid.
