Featuring reliable, high-torque 6-cylinder engines as well as gearshift systems, transmissions and axles aligned with each application, the Atego delivers particularly economical operation. With the 175 kW (238 hp) engine variant a high-performance, weight-optimised and perfectly configured 6-speed transmission system (optionally available with the Telligent® automatic gearshift) enable engine power to be transferred to the road without incurring loss due to friction. With the 210 kW (286 hp) engine variant, this task is handled by a mechanical-hydraulic 9-speed direct-drive transmission. The low-noise, low-maintenance drive axles have a positive effect on fuel consumption. And boasting a large number of different ratios, they deliver optimum drive configurations to handle virtually all applications.
