Unimogs since the S 404

Since the introduction of the Unimog-S 404 in the 1950s, there have been many other models of Unimog. This document is the beginning of a summary of these newer models. If you would like to contribute information, send me mail.

Please consider this a very rough draft. There are almost certainly errors, and there are definitely important omissions.

Individual Model Specifications

Some of this information is from Sofcom's Unimog Specifications.

U 900 (406)

The U900 is often referred to by the first digits of the chassis number: 406.

Shorter wheelbase than the Unimog-S 404. Imported into the US and Canada for snow removal, came with diesel engine. Lower top speed than the S-404. I believe the U 900 is the same vehicle as the Case MB 4/94.

	engine:		5.8l diesel
	wheelbase:	93.5in wheelbase. 
	top speed:	80kph (48 mph)

UX 1

From MB press releases. Introduced in 1996.
	width:		1.6m
	height:		2m
	GVW:		3.5 to 4.8 tonnes
	engine:		54kW (73hp) diesel, or
			81kW (110hp) diesel

Designed for applications like waste disposal, streetsweeping, construction, and airport duties. I believe this is the least expensive of the currently produced Unimogs.
