The Unimog – as the name suggests – is a truly universal fighter. From high altitude expeditions to transporting classic cars and providing a platform for wild RV conversions – the Unimog can easily do it all, even in stock form. You can’t imagine how capable it is when you modify it.
Well you don’t have to literally imagine that more, because here we have a superb Unimog U1300 L37 example from 1992 which has been tuned with high quality aftermarket components. Modifications range from additional LED lights to an additional fuel tank for a combined capacity of around 220 liters of diesel fuel. And more.
Under the hood is a direct injection six-cylinder in-line diesel engine, which is a truly indestructible mill. The owner of the machine explains in the video at the top of this page that he hasn’t had any issues with it so far – but if he needs to fix something in the future, it will be a challenge. given the limited access to the engine.
Of course, there is a full list of additional equipment for off-road adventures and camping, including a generator, water filtration system, inflatable roof tent (which looks super comfy), And much more. Oh, yeah – there’s a central tire inflation system as well, because what’s a Unimog without that feature?
Once you’ve gotten to grips with this particular example from the video above, there’s a very interesting section of the clip that tries to crush some of the Unimog myths. Is it good everyday driving, are the tires super expensive, is it faster in reverse etc.? You will find all the answers here. Enjoy!
Here you will find all the technical details of the expedition vehicle.
