Massive Unimog U500 The Ultimate Insane Mercedes Pickup Truck

I’m also going to drive the Unimog and review the driving experience of one of the most unbelievable trucks in history. This Unimog U500 features a 2-speed 4WD transfer case, triple locking differentials, and 20-inch wheels linked to a central tire inflation system (CTIS).

Modifications include a custom crew cab setup by Plastisol that was installed by Gran Turismo in Los Angeles in 2015 along with a 3-way tilting dump bed that has a custom-built rollover bar with spare tire mount. The cab was finished in Mercedes-Benz Designo Platinum Metallic matte paint by Avio Coach after being installed.

Power comes from the “OM906LA” 6.4-liter turbocharged inline-6 diesel engine, which produces 260 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. The engine spins all four wheels via an 8-speed automated pre-selector manual transmission and 2-speed 4WD transfer case.via/read more: carsandbids
