“Cross-Country Vehicle of the Year”.
For the eleventh time in a row the Mercedes-Benz Unimog has been named best Cross-Country Vehicle of the Year in the “special-purpose vehicles” category by readers of the specialist journal “Off Road”. This year, the “Cross-Country Vehicle of the Year” poll had a total of twelve categories. More than 36,000 votes were cast and 123 vehicles were in the running. The Unimog took first place amongst the special-purpose vehicles with a superb 51.4 percent of the readers’ votes. Whether it’s in the bone-dry Gobi desert, in the tundra and taiga of Siberia or on the hot volcano crater road on Vesuvius, there is barely a challenge in the world which the Mercedes-Benz Unimog would not be capable of taking on. The genes for such extreme applications are in its blood.
