Re: Basic Unimog Curiousity???
umm - not gonna get many replies to this, 'cause what you're asking is like saying 'what motors in a Jeep'.
Mogs have been made for about 50 years...and the specs on them vary widely.
older ones were basically 4x4, portal axles, gas engines, lots of gears. the bodies are independently moutned, and flex seperately from the chassis ( and the cab/bed are seperate from each other, too) options up the yingyang, and they were eentially built to teh originl customers specs...
newer models are normally diesel, still have portal axels and have come in anything up to a 6x6 airbraked configuration. (not sure, there might even have been 8x8 models)
