Benefits of Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC®

There are so many benefits to Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® for drivers in Oxford and Monroe. Fuel economy is one of the biggest benefits — it’s approximately 6 to 8 miles per gallon higher than similar gas-powered vehicles. You get the power your need with a smaller environmental impact. You also have a large selection of Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® vehicles to choose from so you can enjoy the fuel economy benefits without sacrificing style and function. From the Sprinter BlueTEC® cargo van option to the E-Class, you can utilize this Mercedes-Benz technology feature.

How Does Mercedes BlueTEC® Diesel Work?

Simply put, Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® reduces nitrous oxide emissions through a system of reducers. Here’s how it reduces harmful emissions:

  1. A diesel oxidation catalyst reduces carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons before they can be released into the atmosphere.
  2. A nitrogen oxide trap continues the process by removing nitrogen.
  3. A particle filter traps soot particles, then burns them off when the filter’s full.
  4. A Selective Catalytic Reduction catalytic converter changes any remaining nitrogen oxide to harmless nitrogen and water.

This happens because high-pressure fuel injection provides the right amount of pressure. A variable-vane turbocharger makes for a more powerful combustion. And finally, AdBlue liquid solution is injected to help convert the nitrogen oxide to nitrogen and water. This process leads to an engine with a less harmful amount of emissions that still has power and torque. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter BlueTEC® diesel van has the power to manage a heavy payload with ease without leaving the same earth-unfriendly exhaust as a cargo van with a gas engine.
