Alongside the new Mercedes-Benz BlueEfficiency Power engine wich meets Euro 6 emissions standards, the new fully-automated Mercedes-Benz PowerShift 3 transmission also makes its debut in the Travego Edition 1. The benefits to the driver are the progressive transmission s/he has already become accustomed to; as well as fast and equally smooth gear-changing. The gear ratio spacing goes from 6.57 in first gear to 0.63 in top gear. The transmission name makes this clear: it is approved for maximum engine speeds of up to 2500 Nm. A heat exchanger keeps the temperature of the transmission oil at a constant operating temperature of 80 degrees. This has a very positive effect on transmission oil change intervals.
Your driver will have a lot of strain taken off him/her by this innovative transmission system. S/he will only have to steer or - in manual mode - select
the right gear - the automatic mode will do the rest.
