Hundreds of thousands of engines have already their worth in the Mercedes-Benz van and in diverse Mercedes-Benz passenger

The new Vito sets the benchmark in and environmental friendliness. All engines with the EU5 emissions standard.  reduced fuel consumption lowers CO 2 emissions to a record Substantial further reductions in consumption and emissions are possible the BlueEFFICIENCY versions (standard for the Traveliner and available in the UK in Q1 2011).

innovative package is kind on the environment and the company budget.

All engines are equipped with an catalytic converter, a particulate and cooled exhaust gas recirculation. The new ECO manual transmission offers a gear ratio spread for performance and enables low fuel and emission levels. The overall is impressive response and acceleration with outstanding economy, friendliness and smooth running.

Top of the is the V6 in the Vito 122 CDI, which smooth running with output and high tractive to meet the very highest The latest version of this is also more powerful, economical and more environmentally The new engine ratings are accompanied by changes to the numerical codes in the model designations.

Four-cylinder robust, economical, clean, and smooth-running

At the core of the new generation of is the four-cylinder in-line unit has the internal code OM 651. It is in three power variants for the Vito:

Thanks to offset rod journals, the engine runs smoothly than any other in its class.

The technical highlights a total of four chain-driven camshafts, common rail with piezo injectors and injection holes per injector for atomisation of the fuel.

The latest of the engine in the Vito 122 CDI offers ten more power, at 224 hp and an unchanged impressive level of torque, at 440 Nm. It with the EU5 emissions standard. At the time, fuel consumption and CO 2 have fallen noticeably, by five percent, and are surprisingly low in to the performance capabilities of the Vito 122

Other enhancements of this version of the V6 include a maximum pressure of 1600 bar. Key
