What is Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC®?

Diesel vehicles are becoming popular in the United States and it’s no surprise as to why. Diesel engines are more efficient than their gasoline counterparts. Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles use BlueTEC® technology to improve performance and fuel economy. Learn more about how BlueTEC® works from Mercedes-Benz of Modesto’s team below!

How Does Mercedes BlueTEC® Work?

Hybrid models are very popular among Merced drivers, thanks to their great fuel efficiency. Diesel cars, however, are also becoming a favorite choice of vehicle, as they offer both powerful performance and impressive fuel economy.

How does BlueTEC® tie in? BlueTEC® diesel technology not only strengthens fuel economy and performance but also reduces the vehicle emissions of diesel engines at the same time. The BlueTEC® engine consists of the following components:

  • High-pressure fuel injection that allows for optimal pressure and operation
  • Variable-vane turbocharger that generates additional power combustion
  • AdBlue® liquid solution that’s injected into the exhaust in order to transform the nitrogen oxide emissions to nitrogen and oxygen.

What are the Benefits of BlueTEC®?

You may be wondering, “Why should I choose a BlueTEC® vehicle?” There are many benefits to driving one! For one, each BlueTEC® model earns, on average, 6 to 8 miles per gallon higher than the respective vehicle powered by gasoline. In other words, when you choose a diesel option, you can utilize your engine’s power while staying eco-friendly.

Additionally, if you want a vehicle that comes equipped with BlueTEC® technology, you won’t be limited with your options. BlueTEC® technology comes on many new Mercedes-Benz models. So, you can drive the right vehicle that meets your wants and needs — no matter if that vehicle is a luxurious E-Class with BlueTEC® for a more enjoyable commute or a Sprinter BlueTEC® van for your Stockton business.
