Mercedes Atego Trucks for Sale (78)

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.

Used Mercedes Atego Trucks

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 middlewight 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.

Mercedes Ategos’ Reliability is Key for Cook

If you are selling high quality food – even frozen food - then the company’s image has to look right online, in store and on the road. Managing their own transport in house and buying Mercedes trucks and vans for the job means that the overall image of frozen food retailer, Cook is kept high. The company has benefitted from the recent lockdowns and resultant increases in home deliveries and has responded to this surging demand by adding another Mercedes-Benz truck to its logistics fleet. Following a £16-million investment the fast-growing company is also preparing to open a second kitchen…

Mercedes Atego Sleeper used as Crew Cab

If the standard crew cab is too long to fit a full-length body, then order a sleeper cab that has a seat-bunk combination fitted.  That’s what R&S Recovery Services’ did with their new Mercedes-Benz Atego which now has a cab that’s roomy enough to accommodate five passengers, but not so long that it eats into space better used for the load bed. The High Wycombe-based operator purchased its 15-tonne Atego from Rygor Commercials, a Dealer for which it works as a sub-contractor. The truck has a ClassicSpace L-cab with additional side windows and an innovative seat-bunk combination. This option provides…

It Must be Mercedes for Urquhart

If your business is all about attention to detail – you wouldn’t want a staircase built by a slapdash joiner – then the choice of truck also goes under the microscope for Aberdeenshire’s Urquhart Joinery Services. The company enjoys an enviable reputation for the high quality of its work – and demands the same exemplary standards from its truck supplier. The new 13.5-tonne Atego 1321L has a ClassicSpace S-cab and a 5.1-litre engine No surprise, then, that when the family-owned firm decided to replace its seven-year-old Mercedes-Benz, its first call was to Dealer BLS Truck & Van for another vehicle…

Mercedes Atego Beats Swedes to Recovery Deal

We love to see a tenacious sales executive work to get a deal.  That’s what happened with Bell Truck & Van’s Truck Sales Executive Alex Wordsworth in closing a deal for an Atego 1530 recovery truck for Alpha Recovery. Roger Dyson’s SLA transporter bed is designed to slide clear of the chassis and lie very close to the ground, giving an approach angle of less than five degrees Alpha Recovery has operated Mercedes-Benz trucks of various size in the past, but more recently most of the vehicles had been Swedish-built. “The Dealer has made great strides over the past couple…
