What is Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC®?

Mercedes-Benz AMG

Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® is a system of advanced clean-diesel innovations presenting Urbandale drivers like you with fuel-efficient, high-performance, and environmentally-conscious diesel options. Discover how Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® diesel technology makes for lower emissions vehicles than ever before— from hardworking Mercedes-Benz Sprinter BlueTEC® vans to classically luxurious E-Class BlueTEC® cars and more.

Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® Technology

BlueTEC® technology leads the charge when it comes to lowering diesel emissions— making for not only some of the cleanest diesel vehicles— but some of the cleanest vehicles overall. Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® diesel engines pass emissions testing in all fifty states with flying colors. Curious as to how the BlueTEC® system works? Here’s how Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® makes for lower emissions:

  • The BlueTEC® system drives exhaust gases through filters to the catalytic converter
  • The gasses then mix with a water-based additive solution called AdBlue®
  • This process converts nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrogen and water byproducts
  • The result is far from “dirty-diesel”
  • Soot and other pollutants are significantly reduced

Thanks to the BlueTEC® diesel process, these engines run smoother, more optimally, and quieter, all the while more efficiently and powerfully than their gas-powered equivalents.

Benefits of BlueTEC® Vehicles

Whether you need a new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter BlueTEC® van for your Ankeny business, or you’re looking for a more fuel-efficient sedan for your commutes, these models are your solution. Over average, Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC® diesel engines get between 20 and 30 percent better gas mileage than similar-sized gas-powered cars.

That means you’ll go farther throughout and beyond Waukee on one tank of fuel. In addition to lower emissions and increased fuel economy over comparable gas-powered models, BlueTEC® Mercedes-Benz vehicles also generate superior torque and robust performance.
