MERCEDES-BENZ ON: EURO IV AND HIGHER ENGINES
In addition to the choice of two Euro III engines, the new Actros and Arocs are available with three different engines complying with Euro IV and Euro V emission norms. All engines are designed as in-line six-cylinder engines with exhaust-gas turbocharging and charge air cooling for high torque at little more than idle speed. Maximum tractive power levels of from 1,000 to 3,000Nm are achieved by three displacements of 10,7, 12.8, and 15.6l, with a power range from 240kw up to 460kw.
An important feature of the six-cylinder in-line engines of the OM 470/471/473 model series from Mercedes-benz is the unique nexible commonrail X-pulse injection system with fully electronic control and pressure booster. Whether the OM 470, OM 471, or the OM 473 – all engines comply with the Euro IV or Euro V emissions standard. They feature the latest common-rail injection system and come with exhaust gas recirculation. Exhaust gases are treated with SCR technology with Adblue injection, as well as a downstream oxidation catalytic converter.
