Mercedes-Benz Vans is introducing a series of improvements for its contender in the mid-size vans segment. Among the highlights are high-torque four-cylinder diesel engines for the Vito Tourer with passenger car approval. Mercedes says that in comparison to the predecessor, the new OM 654 engine range reduces emissions and consumption values whilst also optimising noise and vibration comfort. The power units, already familiar from the Mercedes-Benz passenger car range, will see their first ever usage in a commercial vehicle at Mercedes-Benz Vans.
Mercedes has been releasing more details about the OM654, its first all-aluminium four cylinder diesel engine. The new power unit will appear in the next E 220 d in the spring.
