Unimog stands for “Universal-Motorgerät” which roughly translated means “universal motorized implement machine”.
Unimogs are multipurpose. all-terrain. utility vehicles built by Mercedes-Benz. They are designed to be operated in some of the harshest conditions in the world. Unimogs are widely recognized as the most capable off-road vehicles in the world.
Although Unimog models differ greatly in many respects. all Unimogs incorporate the same design principle that make them such extraordinary vehicles. This principle is the combination of low gearing. torque tube suspension with coil springs. and portal axles with differential locks combined with a very strong chassis that allows for a high degree of flex. The result is an extremely versatile and capable vehicle which can be used in a wide variety of roles. from a tractor to an expedition vehicle.
Unimogs make excellent expedition vehicles because of their rugged design. off-road capability. and Mercedes-Benz quality. Expedition vehicles based on American pickups don't even come close to a Unimog in terms of capability and reliability.
When the going gets really tough. the Unimog is in a league of its own. Its extraordinary off-road ability and heavy-duty components. allow it to reliably access areas other vehicles cannot even approach. The extra capacity allows for a level of freedom. comfort and independence unattainable in other vehicles. Extra fuel. water and storage capacity means the Unimog has incredible range and can carry supplies for extended periods away from civilization. Ultimate off-road and emergency disaster vehicle. Military grade.
The 406 and 416 Unimogs make excellent expedition vehicles. especially with a bit of preparation. 416 makes a better expedition vehicle due to its greater capacity. more stable wheelbase. higher top speed and more powerful engine.
The OM 352 diesel engine is one of the most trusted engines in the world. This engine is a heavy-duty unit that is great for expedition work because of its ruggedness. dependability and relative simplicity. Since it is the engine of choice in most 3rd world countries. from Africa to South America. parts and knowledgeable mechanics are available in even the most remote corners of the world. The 416 has a heavier duty gearbox and axles. The axles have optional high-speed gears that improve top speed. With fast axles and a tuned engine. the 416 is a capable of cruising speeds fast enough for virtually all expedition requirements.
The 416 is powered by the Mercedes 6 cylinder. 5. 7 liter. OM 352 that generally produces 110 hp depending which application it is in. The OM352 is a low revving. heavy-duty truck engine. This engine is famous for its strength and durability and is still used throughout the world in trucks. boats and heavy-duty machinery. The engine can easily be tuned to 125hp for the 416 by upgrading the injector pump
Fast axles involve installing lower ratio ring and pinion gears. This will provide approx 20% increase in top speed.
