This Massive Unimog U500 Is the Ultimate Insane Mercedes Pickup Truck

Makina dhe automjete

The Unimog is the craziest pickup truck ever -- and specifically this Unimog, which is the ultimate truck. Today I'm reviewing this Unimog, and I'll show you all the quirks and features of the Unimog. I'm also going to drive the Unimog and review the driving experience of one of the most unbelievable trucks in history.

    15:12 are you sure about that? The Unimog is a bit special but in most European commercial diesels the green simply signifies the "economy band"; this is the most fuel efficient rev range to keep the engine in. So whilst you shift gears to try and keep it in the green, it's not a case of "wait until you are on the yellow then shift".

  • donkmeister

    11:46 Funnily enough, they also provide English owners manuals for the UK market Unimogs, which have been sold here since the 1950s.. Just in case anyone is watching this in America, thinking "Hey I'd love to import an earlier or later Unimog but I don't speak German". Fun fact: the Unimog is such a versatile vehicle that in the UK it doesn't neatly slot into one particular vehicle category. So, when you buy one new, the specification you choose affects what licence you need to drive it, the tax categories and speed limits applicable to you despite it being the same basic vehicle underneath. Choose some options "just in case" and all of a sudden you need a commercial licence and you can't drive at more than 40mph even on a motorway.

    Tire on a pole is the heated mirrors... the light switch is for strobe lights if the vehicle is equipped with them... the start stop is for the hydraulic system that the vehicle is equipped with, there are hydraulic ports on the front of the vehicle... almost 90% of those buttons/switches are not factory, aftermarket fabricators will apply whatever the customer needs to get the job done... from farming, emergency services to public maintenance departments. Particularly Snow and Ice removal as a snow plow truck and sand/salt spreader... the really interesting thing about this truck to me is the triple differential lock. the fact that the front wheels can be diff locked is really interesting... the back little circles... are not POWER they are hydraulic... that fuel tank will probably get you maybe one full day of constant highway driving... with an average MPG about 6 to 8... reason for no back window is the bed of the truck does not have a "headache" rack to stop shifting loads from penetrating the cab... the original bed/body would have had a "headache" rack... Again the outlets in the front are not electrical they are hydraulic... TLDR this is a commercial vehicle... not a pickup truck, any similarities are mute.

    My uncle migrated from germany to rural new zealand southern island in the mid 80s with his family and he could afford to bring two ship cargo containers of goods with him. One was for his and the families household stuff and the other one was just for his unimog. :D

    not sure why you keep laughing and snickering at everything .....if you have a large farm or where a 1 ton or 3 ton is used...this is the best of a pick up or 1 ton world......its versatile btw "the button that has the tire hanging off" the heated mirror/s.......

    14:00 Preshifting has nothing do to with people not being able to coordinate properly. Preshifted gears allow for achange with minimal loss in power. So if you pull a heavy load the transmission will transfer the load nearly constantly. As a result you loose less speed.

    How is a suspension seat a quirk... Just about semi-truck, bus and larger van have suspension seats. Driving all day on stiff suspension is torture on your back, so it's not a luxury... but a necessity! My company extra long Sprinter comes with a suspension seat, climate control, rear camera and automatic for optimum safety and efficiency. An irritated and stressed driver who's hot and has a bad back is not gonna give it their best. But give the driver their necessary comfort and they will happily rank up those miles! PS: The hanging tire is heated side mirrors and the funny light thing is for auxiliary lights (light bar, sirens, etc) The joystick pannel is for other auxiliary functions (snow plow, street cleaning equipment, farming equipment, etc)

    Something Doug didn’t seem to know is that all UNIMOGs have the ability to be either LHD or RHD, and you can easily change it - you release some levers, flip the entire dash up, and then the steering, gauge cluster and pedal cluster, all one unit mounted on tubular rails, simply slides from side to side.

    "Thiiiis is a Unimog, the best offroad worktruck in the whole world", would be the correct intro. There is no better offroad worktruck in the world. Hate me for writing this, but this is just a fact. And no, i am not here to diss anyone. I love US Pick Ups and US classic cars. This one could not swipe the steering wheel and the pedals completly to the right side? Or did you forgett this? I am not that deep into "modern" Unimogs, maybe they did not sell this option to the USA? Next time, please try to explain how to handle the gearbox of an Unimog U406/421 ;-) Would be fun to see you "working" on it.
