The Atego truck is the perfect work partner for any type of construction site. Whatever the vehicle configuration you need, the Atego is versatile enough to make light work of operations in the construction industry. Built to the strictest quality standards, the Atego benefits from a robust and durable design, performing at its best over the most difficult of terrain and driving conditions. You can build the axle, frame, chassis, suspension and brake components specific to your operation, and the Mercedes-Benz PowerShift 3 automated gearshift makes driving even easier.

Key Features

Providing enhanced safety when manoeuvring, the Atego comes with the option of installing up to four analogue cameras.

With the ability to detect obstacles in front of the vehicle, Active Brake Assist 51 can warn the driver of dangers and even carry out full braking, if necessary.

This safety system warns the driver when the vehicle is drifting out of its designated lane by monitoring the distance from the lane markings.

The Atego's sensitive steering provides for simple, exact handling during manoeuvring, while at high speeds it ensures reliable straight-line and high directional stability along with a correspondingly reduced need for corrective steering.

The Atego’s LED lighting has been specifically designed to enhance the safety of the vehicle, whilst reducing maintenance and repair costs. They are robust and durable and as well as the turn signal, brake and read lights, they are also optional on the tail lamp, license plate and rear fog lamps.

To further enhance the safety of the Atego, there is an option available for a three-stage wear-free auxiliary brake. This offers up to 300kw of braking power.

This technologically advanced safety system identifies potentially dangerous driving situations, such as skidding or swerving and does its best to counteract these.

With eight control buttons on both sides, the multifunction steering wheel makes it possible to control many of your truck’s operations in one place, allowing you to better focus on the road ahead.

Further enhancing the Atego’s convenience and safety, its instrument cluster is prepared for use with a reversing camera. This allows the driver to clearly see the area behind the vehicle.

Optimised to reduce wind resistance and built with a Euro VI engine, the Atego benefits from a low level of aerodynamic drag, reducing fuel consumption and ultimately costs to your business.

All Euro VI engines boast low fuel consumption whilst supporting combustion with low particulate emissions. What’s more, the Atego’s engines are available in two displacement classes and with seven power output ratings, from 115kW (156hp) to 220kW (299hp).

The Atego is available with a choice of 6-, 8- or 9-speed transmissions, enabling the vehicle to be tailored effectively to its intended application. Matched rear-axle ratios complete the optimum powertrain package and the Mercedes PowerShift 3 automatic gearshift has an optimised shift strategy and application specific drive programs, enabling anticipatory driving in almost any situation.

The automated transmission ensures precise gear selection, short shift times, high driving comfort and a very high level of economic efficiency. Additional functions such as direct shifting from forward to reverse and one reverse gear with a high ratio2 make for easy manoeuvring. The crawler function is particularly convenient when moving off.

Economy driving program. This driving program can be activated selectively and supports a particularly economical driving style. It is a functional addition to the "standard" transmission mode.

Power driving program. This driving mode supports an agile mode of driving in difficult topography.

“We recognise and appreciate fine machinery, and that’s what we see in the Mercedes-Benz Atego.

Our former truck provided exceptional service for a decade-and-a-half. It was only towards the very end, as one or two issues started to crop up, that we decided the time had finally come to replace it. Given past experience, we were only ever going to do so with another Atego.” Bob Houghton Ltd
