Earlyer i showed the next ‘Atego’ or whatever it is going to be named but this is the bigger distribution truck of Mercedes-Benz. For the light range the existing cab is restyled but this is a downsized new Actros cab. This is probably going to be the 12 ton version.
Together with the new small engines there was also the presentation of the new OM 470 engine. This new engine looks like the Actros engine, the OM471, but is has only 10,7 liters where the OM 471 has 12,8 liters. This new engine is replacing the engine for the segment where MB now sels the Axor. Also it is going to be used in the Actros for medium heavy transport.
The OM 470 spans the power range from 326 hp until 428 hp. For the espected big banger there is no news yet but we espect Mercedes-Benz to come with a 15 or 16 liter engine for heavy transport sollutions later this year.
