The Mercedes-Benz Unimog doesn't do everything and it can't go everywhere, but what it can do and where it can go is often well beyond the capabilities of anything else on the road. As a result, some offroad enthusiasts in the United States are interested in acquiring Unimogs. While it isn't possible (for now) to stroll into your local Mercedes-Benz dealership and pick one off the lot, many Unimogs have been imported into the United States over the years. In fact, dozens have changed hands on BringATrailer.com and other auction sites.

We brought two of these Unimogs out to offroading mecca, Moab, Utah, during the 2021 Easter Jeep Safari. Check out this video above to learn more about the Bilstein 1973 Mercedes-Benz 416 Doka Unimog & the WEISTEC 1998 Mercedes-Benz U1550L Unimog featured within. If you own a Unimog, we can't imagine you use it as a daily driver. If your Unimog doesn't see regular use, we'd recommend keeping the battery properly-charged with an OPTIMA Digital 1200 battery charger & maintainer.
