The three-stage, wear-free auxiliary brake is optionally available for even greater safety, offering up to 280 kW of braking power depending on the installed engine variant.

The three-stage brake system offers up to 235 kW of brake power, which comes as standard on vehicles with a permissible gross vehicle weight of 9.5 t or over. This reduces wear on the service brake while enhancing safety and control of the vehicle.

The Atego is available with a choice of 6-, 8- or 9-speed transmissions, enabling the vehicle to be tailored effectively to its intended application. Matched rear-axle ratios complete the optimum powertrain package.

Superior dynamic response, simple handling and low fuel consumption. The automated transmission ensures precise gear selection, short shift times, high driving comfort and a very high level of economic efficiency.

With PowerShift 3, additional functions such as direct shifting from forward to reverse and one reverse gear with a high ratio93 make for easy manoeuvring. The crawler function is particularly convenient when moving off.

The Atego is available with the two driving programs "economy" or "power", one of which you can select at the time of purchase. Different transmission modes enhance driving comfort and efficiency.

Economy driving program. The "economy" drive program can be activated selectively and supports an economical driving style. It is a functional addition to the "standard" transmission mode.
