Mercedes-Benz developed the Unimog 407 to follow up the success of the Unimog 421. They produced the 407 from 1988 till 1993. It was only available with a short and long wheelbase and a closed cab, not like the predecessor as a “Triebkopf” or with an open cab. In 1993 it was replaced by the Unimog 408.
The 417 was produced to replace the Unimog’s 403, 406, 413 and 416. With main goals such as agricultural and municipality work the Unimog 417 was deployable all year round with at least 75HP.
