Notes on technical data
For technical approval or fiscal reasons, power values
and benefits may vary.
On some engines with undercarriage for rough roads,
the maximum speed may be limited and therefore lower
Unless stated otherwise, the technical data is valid for
the basic model. The indicated values may differ
depending on the optional equipment or model version,
as well as in the case of special vehicles and equipment
for certain countries. The data from the official vehicle
documentation always have priority.
Mass of the towing vehicle and trailer
combination The masses indicated for the towing
vehicle and trailer combination are only valid for
maximum altitudes of 1000 m (3000 feet) above sea
level. The maximum authorized mass of the towing
vehicle and trailer combination must be reduced by
approx. 10%. for every 1,000 m (3,000 ft) of additional height.
Observe the notes and information regarding vehicles in
category N1 ÿ p. 384, Important information for vehicles
in category N1 (light commercial vehicle).

depends on, among other things, the road surface,
weather conditions and engine power. The values apply
to a moving vehicle and not to starting from a standstill.
