The most spectacular Mercedes-Benz all-terrain vehicles.

A Unimog on a slope surrounded by wild countryside

No obstacles, no limits: all-terrain vehicles like the Sprinter 4x4, the Vito 4x4 and the Unimog are reliable companions off the road.

Vito 4×4: the best off-road scenes.

Thanks to all-terrain drive, the Vito 4×4 struggles through the thickest forest, makes its way through gravel, mud and puddles and even the most extreme conditions can’t stop the van: even in the dusty Sahara or on ice and snow, the Vito 4×4 is a reliable partner. Need some proof? Here you’ll find five of the most impressive off-road scenes with the all-wheel van.

Through forests and fields in a Vito 4×4.

The Vito 4×4 turns resolutely onto a narrow trail. The steep gravel path is a synch for the van that belongs to the Austrian Alpine Association. The fact that gravel and stones are gradually covered by uncontrolled growth is not a problem for the Mercedes-Benz van. For the Alpine Association’s nature lovers, who, equipped with their spades and shovels, reforest the protection forest up here on North Tyrol’s Obernberg with countless seedlings, the Vito 4×4 is the perfect all-wheel drive to take care of their important tasks: avalanche protection and stabilizing the ecosystem.

At home on the rough mountain roads: the Vito 4×4.

In every season and on any terrain.

Mercedes-Benz vans perform brilliantly and not just on tarmac. Snow, gravel, sand or even mud are no obstacle to the all-wheel transporters. Not least because of its powerful engine, the Sprinter 4×4 is a real off-road all-rounder in every weather and on every kind of surface.

Over hill and dale: the Sprinter as a mobile measuring station.

Fields, mud and narrow forest trails – his work as a geologist takes Walter Beck into regions that are by no means easily accessible. He gets to them thanks to his all-wheel driven Sprinter from Mercedes-Benz. It offers enough storage room to accommodate his entire equipment. This way, Walter Beck can travel from spring to spring to fulfil his mission: which is to ensure an optimal quality of the water.

Forest rangers rely on the all-wheel vans from Mercedes-Benz.

The forester easily stows away his power saw in the respective fitting in the side wall of the Sprinter 4×4 and removes his orange helmet – work is over. The ranger’s way home, at dusk, takes him through the thick forest of the Swiss mountains, not necessarily the easiest route. Good that the foresters from Lucerne can rely on their all-wheel transporters from Mercedes-Benz. Read more.

Hymermobil based on the Sprinter: safe through the winter.

In the 3,000 soul community of Sölden, the Unimog snowploughs are clearing the streets. The morning sun is gradually climbing over the peaks of the “BIG 3”. That’s what the three-thousanders, Gaislachkogl (3,058 m), Tiefenbachkogl (3,250 m) and Schwarze Schneide (3,340 m) are called here in the Austrian Ötztal Alps. In the Mercedes-Benz 4×4 Sprinter mobile homes from Hymer on the campsite close to the top station, the first lights are being lit. A wonderful winter sports day awaits. But right now it’s still bitter cold. But hold on: camping amongst ice and snow? Why not? Hymer makes this possible.

There isn’t a single snowy or icy landscape that the Hymer couldn’t manage on its way to the ski lift.

The Sprinter 4×4 supports motorbike adventures in the Sahara.

A vehicle for all extremes: the Sprinter 4×4 won’t be stopped, not even by the hostile conditions of the Sahara, the largest arid desert on earth. This makes the all-wheel van an ideal companion for the three motorbike adventurers from Spain, who have set out on this off-road trip with their dirt bikes – of their own construction. Because: No matter whether it’s the desert sun, ice-cold nights, low fuel quality or even unrelenting sandstorms – with the robust Sprinter 4×4, the “Desert Wolves” from the motorbike manufacturer, El Solitario, champion every challenge.

The Sprinter 6×6 as a fire truck in the mountains of Austria.

When the phone rings in the alert center in Linz, responses must be swift. But the terrain in this area of Hinterschiffl is extremely challenging: the paths wind up and down and are rough and stony. While many vehicles are forced to park away from the site of operation, the local fire brigade always get right to the target thanks to their Sprinter 6×6: the impressive fire truck can access even the remotest country and forestry sites, thanks to its all-wheel drive. The three-axis Sprinter 6×6 is quite a sensation in the village – and always the firefighters’ first choice.

Particularly in the event of forest accidents, the Sprinter 6×6 is a great support for the fire brigade thanks to its all-wheel drive.

The Unimog – an exceptional talent for extreme situations.

We’ve now come to a legend among all-wheel vehicles: the Unimog. It’s unstoppable taking its driver through mud, water, over rocks and even up the steepest of inclines. No wonder that to date some 400,000 vehicles of 30 series have been sold. There are now two types of Unimog: the equipment carrier and the highly off-roadable vehicle. Both make the impossible possible and are absolutely convincing with their numerous areas of assignment – both on and off road. There is more to find out about these unusual working heroes and their history right here.

By Unimog to the bees on an English moor.

Honeybees and the Unimog – how does that fit together? The beekeepers at Woldgate Honey say very well! The beehives at this English company are sometimes located up to five miles from the road on the North York moors. Only a very few vehicles can make it there. The sunny yellow all-wheel talents and their excellent all-terrain qualities are key when it comes to resettling the beehives from one site to another. That’s why the beekeepers are sure: once Unimog, always Unimog.

DLRG water rescue drives Unimog.

A vehicle that can master any terrain can sometimes be a life saver: the closer the rescue teams get to the scene of the accident, the greater the chances of survival of the missing people. For this reason, the rescuers of the German Life Saving Organization (DLRG) in Stadthagen have opted for two Unimog 1300 as their rescue vehicles. On their way through sand and undergrowth, nothing can stop the all-wheel vehicles, and the DLRG rescuers together with all their gear are taken right to the bank.

The Unimog has been converted into a diving vehicle with an additional bench and now has enough space for six divers.

The Unimog as a life saver in Madagascar.

Virtually no infrastructure. Instead, bumpy roads that are closed down due to huge waterways during the rainy season: for the paramedics of the hospital, Hopitaly Zoara in the south west of Madagascar, it was always difficult to reach the remote villages in this poor region. But now a Unimog ambulance ensures quick and safe transport. The all-wheel vehicle masters the deep puddles and bumpy roads without a problem – and is a life saver.

Brewing coffee in the wild?.

In the middle of the wilderness of the north west of the US, all of a sudden you catch the smell of a Viennese coffeehouse and people are warming their hands over steaming hot mugs. Huh? The delicious coffee specialties are thanks to the team from Motofish Coffee – who conquer even the most difficult terrain with their Unimog from Mercedes-Benz. The Unimog as an all-wheel driven coffeeshop proves that it is a true all-rounder.

The Mercedes-Benz Unimog from Motofish Coffee is not only all terrain; now it's a mobile coffee shop.

The Unimog as food truck amidst snow and ice.

Long cold winters, rugged countryside, seemingly endless forest: who could seriously think of setting up a food truck here? Against all odds, the Finnish food photographer, Sami Repo, has done just that and provides his mobile BBQ for all kinds of company events, birthday parties or other occasions in the High North. This is all possible thanks solely to the outstanding durability of his Unimog U 318: in the depths of winter it still courses a secure path to its hungry customers. Read more.
