Classic Engines

Mercedes Benz URO V and EEV engines are synonymous with strength, economy and durability. Based on this characteristics, our engines in both series are ideal for short-radius distribution, construction site transport and long-distance haulage. They can also be modified to create customer-specific variants for use in different bus applications. From the 4/6 cylinder in-line models to the V6/V8 engines, the Euro V and EEVengines represent superior function and efficiency.

The EURO V engines operate at the highest levels of efficiently, ensuring superior power output. Thanks to BlueTec®, Mercedes-Benz’s SCR diesel technology, they do so in a way that is particularly eco-friendly. BlueTec ensures low CO2 emissions and extremely low nitrogen oxide (NOX) and particulates, to meet emission standards at the tailpipe.

Besides low consumption, the BlueTec® engines also have impressive maintenance intervals and a long engine life.
