The Unimog.
Unbeatable assertiveness.

No track or road is too challenging for the Unimog U 4000/U 5000. Not least thanks to its low-maintenance Mercedes-Benz 4-cylinder engines with their efficient power delivery, steep torque curve and large output reserves – so you can get going and tackle the most difficult terrain.

As versatile as you need it to be.

The fully synchronised electro-pneumatic Telligent® gearshift with its eight forward gears and six reverse gears stands out with its smooth running, long life span and high efficiency. It is perfectly designed to support numerous types of operations. The synchronised Electronic Quick Reverse (EQR) makes it easy to change directions quickly or to rock free when off-roading. The special off-road gear group with an additional eight forward and eight reverse gears guarantees maximum traction in the lower 1 – 15 km/h speed range.

AutomaticShift: change gears as you like.

Take the strain out of driving while operating implements or hauling heavy loads. With AutomaticShift you can decide, at the touch of a button, to use either M (for manual) or A (for automatic) gear shifting. Either way, without using the clutch. Even in automatic mode, you can intervene with the gearshift lever and change gears manually.

A radiator system designed for
highest demands.

The radiator system has been developed especially to cope with the high demands placed on the Unimog U 4000/U 5000. The intercooler and radiator, each with their own viscous fan, are fitted side by side, high above the ground. Thus the cooling performance is greatly improved and the danger of fouling is kept to a minimum – for optimum functional safety when fording. You can rely on the Unimog to get you through, even during the most demanding off-road operations involving temperature fluctuations or extreme dust.
