What is Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC®?

MB Sprinter 2020

For Louisville drivers on the lookout for the latest in vehicular performance technology, the BlueTEC® diesel engine offered by Mercedes-Benz promises to be a new standard-bearer. This new form of diesel engine is growing increasingly popular in American markets, and Mercedes-Benz of Louisville has gathered vital details about its fuel efficiency and other features. Whether you’re interested in a Sprinter BlueTEC® model, or another type of vehicle, you can enjoy the benefits of this eco-friendly and effective technology.

How Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® Works

For a more environmentally friendly engine on Elizabethtown roads or better fuel economy on your Shelbyville commute, BlueTEC® Diesel gives drivers some of the latest engine technologies:

  • A clean diesel engine. This isn’t a hybrid engine, but one that is specially designed for clean energy.
  • The vehicle injects a specially-made AdBlue liquid solution into the exhaust. This converts the usual diesel nitrogen oxide emissions into a much cleaner emission of oxygen and nitrogen.
  • Strong combustion with the variable-vane turbocharger still allows this engine to give you tons of strength
  • The engine also keeps going via fuel injection with high pressure.

All of these features provided with BlueTEC® diesel give drivers new options for environmentally friendly vehicles that are still high-performance, including cargo vans, luxury SUVs, and other options.
