Mercedes Atego Trucks for Sale (79)

The Mercedes model competing in the lightweight category, in the UK the Atego is designed primarily for operation between 7.5 and 16 tonnes – heavier duties are looked after by the Antos and the Actros. A reliable workhorse, if not ideally suited to operation at 7.5 tonnes if payload is a major consideration, the Atego comes into its own as a 10 or 12 tonner. These trucks do stand the test of time, if maintained correctly should provide years of service in their second and third life. There are a lot of Mercedes Atego available on the UK’s used truck market at 7.5 tonnes GVW.  The most popular variant on these pages is the 816 – a 7.5 tonner with a 160hp engine. What is more noticeable is the number of middleweight trucks available – from 10 tonners, twelve, thirteen and fifteen tonners.  Interesting too is the fact that nearly all the Ategos for sale are box trucks – there are others, but – if you include refrigerated box trucks – there are more than all other types of Atego put together. This demonstrates the Atego’s appeal as a strong middleweight contender.

Mercedes Atego Timeline

1998 – Mercedes Atego Launched

The Atego took over from the outgoing LK range just before the turn of the century in the light truck category from 6.5 to 16 tonnes GVW.  A massive choice of variants, thanks to the number of different wheelbases, cab types and engine outputs

2000 – Heavyweight Chassis for Atego

Relatively short lived, but Mercedes saw the need for a lighter, smaller truck than the Actros serving the higher weight range.  The heavyweight Atego chassis was the precursor to the Axor which was launched just a year later.

2004 – Second Generation Atego Launched

With a totally new appearance, thanks to a revised front section of the cab and a new interior, this was more than a facelift for the lightweight Atego.  The Telligent automated gearbox was introduced as an option for these Euro 4 trucks.

2005 – Atego Trucks over 18 tonnes rebranded Axor

No more heavy weight Ategos, as Mercedes sought to expand their truck range with the introduction of the Axor that separated the Atego from the Actros.

2007 – Euro 5 Introduced for Atego

Launched two years ahead of schedule, 2007 saw the Atego available as a Euro 5 truck.  Compared with the previous Euro 4 emissions standard, this means a further 43% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx) for the Atego using SCR technology.  Customers could still buy Euro 4 versions.

2008 – Atego Hybrid Pilot Launched

Also launched in the September of that year was the Atego Hybrid truck as a 12 tonner with a 44kw electric motor helping the 218hp Euro 5 diesel engine.

2010 – Atego gets Facelift and EEV

A revised front to the cab to bring the design in line with the premium Actros styling and a new steering wheel. The Atego was the last in the Mercedes model line up to get EEV standards on the OM 924 LA and 926 LA engines.  The EEV standard reduced particulate emissions by about a third compared to the Euro 5 limits.

2013 – Euro 6 Launch for New Atego

A totally new cab plus new Euro 6 engines ranging from 156 to 299hp and Powershift3 transmissions was much more than a facelift.  Lightweight construction techniques keep the weight out of the truck designed for the 6.5 to 16 tonne market, but despite this, service intervals were increased to an impressive 120,000kms.

The cab followed the design cues set down by the revolutionary looking Actros in 2011.  As you would expect with a new cab, there was also a new interior.  This truck is totally different to the earlier version.

Well worth spending the extra on in the used truck market.

Unique Mercedes Atego Scarab Sweeper built on Spec

A Mercedes Atego has, until now, not been the chassis of choice for sweeper operation. There are plenty of DAF trucks and Iveco trucks cleaning our streets, but the three pointed star had been left out of the market.  Mercedes-Benz Truck Dealer City West Commercials has tried to break into this segment by joining forces with leading manufacturer Scarab to build a one-of-a-kind demonstrator vehicle. Based on a 13.5-tonne GVW Mercedes-Benz Atego chassis, and equipped with Scarab’s Magnum 72 Hydrostatic single-engine sweeper body, the truck is thought to be unique.

13-Tonne Mercedes Atego Best Drinks All Rounder

With heavy drinks on board, a 7.5 tonner is not up to the task, but an 18 tonner is too large for daily drink deliveries to hospitality. The perfect compromise seems to be a 13.5 tonne Atego according to Dayla Drinks. Three new Mercedes Atego delivery trucks are helping the company get around in the Home Counties, serving up the wholesaler’s range of beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks and snacks to the hospitality industry.
