Innovativer Technologieträge gibt Ausblick auf kommende Unimog-Generation ab 2014 | Mercedes-Benz Passion Blog
OK, the blue UGN mule was related to the new one seen testing on the road, with the squiggly art/ Wrap, (and the wipers on top of the windshield )and they were mentioned as 2012 models, I think.
Here is a Euro 6 UGN chassis, with the hydraulics in a different place, aluminum wheels ( could be
Powder coated steel ),
Lots of stuff crammed in everywhere, and a tricky hinged and layered radiator/cooler/condenser , like pages in a book. (Still in the "wrong" place behind the wheels, To my mind...) It appears, however, that the radiator/condeser stack has been rotated 90 degrees, with the fan on the
Inside, pulling air inwards toward the frame ? Part of the ground effects so they can drive on the ceiling, maybe.
It appears that the center radiator is for the Engine ( obvious hoses), and the two on the side are A/C condenser and Oil cooler(s).
Other things to note: 6 Cyl Diesel, and it looks as though the radiator stack is only on the
Driver's side, not both, as before.
But, there is also a center mounted forward radiator with a Hydraulic fan on it....which is new.
It'll be interesting to see the PTO Drive - it appears to zoom right through the radiator, but the
Fan is in the way, and MB would never run a PTO shaft through the middle of a radiator....Would they ?
(Although....there were 411 Snow cutters with the live PTO shaft running through the cab
And out the windshield at about ear level....but no worries , about 8" away from the driver's head....probably Schmidt's Design, not MB's)
Listed as the 2014 Unimog.
Looks sorta H R Giger-Alien in parts.
The weirdest part is that I managed to post a link with the flapjack ! (Nothing like getting poked by a stick for motivation.)
