Congrats Mr. Doug DeMuro, you're always very enthusiastic when giving commentaries on a vehicle you test drive including the yellow Hummer the other day. I like it! Greetings from the Special Territory of Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

I understand he’s a millionaire and he deserves credit on account of had someone told an adult to behave like this on camera by yourself by talking a million and a half miles per hour and laughing by yourself pretending to be having the time of your life while describing every vehicle to ever exist you would become a millionaire you tuber nobody would have believed you. I used a run on sentence for good reason. I need headache medicine now, I bid you good day.

Just going to correct something Doug said. Unimogs are made by Mercedes-Benz but It started life as it’s own brand. Unimogs have a really interesting history Doug doesn’t go into. Unimogs were first built as the jack of all trades farming vehicle in post-war Germany. They later started commercial use and in the 50s, Unimog was bought out by Mercedes-Benz. Unimogs are honestly just Mercedes subsidiary making big trucks with the Mercedes-Benz badge on them.

In Austria every town has a Unimog for snow clearing. And when everything is shut down and YOU are the one clearing the roads for everybody in deep freezing temperatures, having 12 heat settings is probably a good thing as you plow through high snow drifts. They are orange though, for best visibility, and have an orange rotating light on the roof so you can see them coming from afar.

15:12 are you sure about that? The Unimog is a bit special but in most European commercial diesels the green simply signifies the "economy band"; this is the most fuel efficient rev range to keep the engine in. So whilst you shift gears to try and keep it in the green, it's not a case of "wait until you are on the yellow then shift".

11:46 Funnily enough, they also provide English owners manuals for the UK market Unimogs, which have been sold here since the 1950s.. Just in case anyone is watching this in America, thinking "Hey I'd love to import an earlier or later Unimog but I don't speak German". Fun fact: the Unimog is such a versatile vehicle that in the UK it doesn't neatly slot into one particular vehicle category. So, when you buy one new, the specification you choose affects what licence you need to drive it, the tax categories and speed limits applicable to you despite it being the same basic vehicle underneath. Choose some options "just in case" and all of a sudden you need a commercial licence and you can't drive at more than 40mph even on a motorway.

Tire on a pole is the heated mirrors... the light switch is for strobe lights if the vehicle is equipped with them... the start stop is for the hydraulic system that the vehicle is equipped with, there are hydraulic ports on the front of the vehicle... almost 90% of those buttons/switches are not factory, aftermarket fabricators will apply whatever the customer needs to get the job done... from farming, emergency services to public maintenance departments. Particularly Snow and Ice removal as a snow plow truck and sand/salt spreader... the really interesting thing about this truck to me is the triple differential lock. the fact that the front wheels can be diff locked is really interesting... the back little circles... are not POWER they are hydraulic... that fuel tank will probably get you maybe one full day of constant highway driving... with an average MPG about 6 to 8... reason for no back window is the bed of the truck does not have a "headache" rack to stop shifting loads from penetrating the cab... the original bed/body would have had a "headache" rack... Again the outlets in the front are not electrical they are hydraulic... TLDR this is a commercial vehicle... not a pickup truck, any similarities are mute.

My uncle migrated from germany to rural new zealand southern island in the mid 80s with his family and he could afford to bring two ship cargo containers of goods with him. One was for his and the families household stuff and the other one was just for his unimog. :D

14:00 Preshifting has nothing do to with people not being able to coordinate properly. Preshifted gears allow for achange with minimal loss in power. So if you pull a heavy load the transmission will transfer the load nearly constantly. As a result you loose less speed.

How is a suspension seat a quirk... Just about semi-truck, bus and larger van have suspension seats. Driving all day on stiff suspension is torture on your back, so it's not a luxury... but a necessity! My company extra long Sprinter comes with a suspension seat, climate control, rear camera and automatic for optimum safety and efficiency. An irritated and stressed driver who's hot and has a bad back is not gonna give it their best. But give the driver their necessary comfort and they will happily rank up those miles! PS: The hanging tire is heated side mirrors and the funny light thing is for auxiliary lights (light bar, sirens, etc) The joystick pannel is for other auxiliary functions (snow plow, street cleaning equipment, farming equipment, etc)
