The Unimog is the craziest pickup truck ever -- and specifically this Unimog, which is the ultimate truck. Today I'm reviewing this Unimog, and I'll show you all the quirks and features of the Unimog. I'm also going to drive the Unimog and review the driving experience of one of the most unbelievable trucks in history.

  • We had those in the German army. You guys in America have no (and I mean NO) idea of the abuse they can take, the places they can go and the infinite uses this platform offers. May not look like much to you, but it really is amazing.

  • yes

  • What town on Cape cod was it? I'd like so see if I can find that thing

  • Great presentation, but give the man a sedative! 😆😆

  • Schön!

  • My God! Anyone else notice there must be upwards of 2 dozen lug nuts per wheel.

  • How tall is the unimog?

  • Seriously... you could be a mean rapper!

  • This has been on my bucket list for years and years. They are soooo expensive.

  • If i had this i would combine the front and back and make the back a sleeping area

  • Must he laugh at EVERYTHING???

  • No mms Is Kiko 🤣

  • I feel personally challenged to change a tire on a unimog now.

  • he can't get over it

  • too much laughin. the best and most iconic all terrain vehicle on earth deserves more respect

  • The button with the light is if you hook up a police or ambulance light it will work

  • Not an pick up truck, it is an platform to attach machines to (through the "electrical outlets" who are hydraulic lines) The rear window is missing because the cabin middlewindow is the rearwindow. All in all it is not thought for civilian use, it is build for farmers, firefigthers, raod construction, snowplowing, building railroads, less for transporting goods (the flatbed is more for installing machinery and storing tools) The basic idea was an four wheeled vehicle to use for everything farming or construction related.

  • The "Tire on a Pole" is the button for the heated Mirrors and the Button with the wheel on it doesn't deflate the middle-wheel, it lifts it up, so more Weight is distributed to the other wheels. Helps in snow etc...

  • We have ton of them in Turkish military. They don’t need road, they can go through anywhere.

  • why are you laughing so much?

  • 196 / 5000 Vertaalresultaten I personally enjoy watching your videos. But you laugh so much at the cars you review that you give the impression that you don't take things too seriously. Even ridicule them a bit.

  • Those connectors front and behind are hydraulic ports not electric.

  • Totally missed the point of the Unimog, reported on out of its natural environment , this was so painful to watch, a bit like taking a fish out of water then complaining its stopped swimming. try cs-tv.org/tv/video-kg_MW-QpMlg.html instead.

  • 6 cylinder turbocharged dersel 14 head bolts. Check your hoses and coolant level like it's your religion

  • Solution for the spare tire conundrum: Its a dump truck...

  • He can't review this thing with a straight face.

  • Oh man please bring this truck to Farming Sim 2022 lol

  • ngl I kinda want one

  • no need to spend 5 min saying its big, we get it, its big lol

  • Fun fact: you can convert it from left-hand drive to right-hand drive by yourself.

  • Stop laughing so same much

  • This is a Mercides Actros Electric Tramsmission.

  • does anybody know what it sold for?

  • Tons of cheap European hatchbacks used to have power windows in front but not in the back up until pretty recently. Interesting to see that that's so uncommon in the US. Also, as mentioned in the beginning, the rear cabin was added later and by the looks of it pretty custom, so yeah blame whoever added it for having no rear window, not the Unimog itself.

  • The guy laughs all the time and has no idea about a Unimog and what it was built for. The guy is absolutely ridiculous and stupid. The next time he should first find out what this vehicle is for. This is not a pickup truck, this is a work vehicle. And the connections at the end are for hydraulics and not for electricity ...

  • Don't compare a unimog to american pickup trucks.. it's not a slow truck, it's a fast tractor

  • Tyre on a pole? Jeeez, that is the button for the heated mirrors. The button with the "steering" pattern is for steering lock. it locks the steering in the middle position. Unimogs are used to haul train waggons in Germany. And they have special additional train wheels for the UNIMOG to be used on and off the train tracks. When on the tracks, the steering is locked.

  • Um... how could you rate it so low for features? It has everything it needs.

  • What you forgot to mention: The name Unimog is an acronym for the German "UNIversal-MOtor-Gerät", "Gerät" being the German word for a piece of equipment (also in the sense of device, machine, instrument, gear, apparatus). This shows that the Unimog is first and foremost a working machine. The name alone shows that the Unimog is first and foremost a working machine - which you have also shown in your examples of possible applications.

  • Imagine trying to fit this in your friends garage that can only fit a lifted f 150

  • Maybe before a review make sure you know the vehicle shame and that to the best 4x4 truck in the world

  • Me watching with my early 2022 raptor: What can this thing do, unlike MY RAPTOR Sees Dumptruck Feature & Everything Else: gotta be green screen....... I GOTTA GET ONE

  • that tire hanging on a pole button is probably for a braking system or sum, but ik for a fact that beacon switch turns on the anti-theft alarm

  • When he said "button with a donkey on it" i double checked to make sure it wasn't ytp

  • Can please stop laughing every second is very irritating

  • Doug, these outlets are hydraulic outlets, so you can run all kind of machines with them and stear them with the joystick. Handling is bad? Most capable vehicle on earth, doesn't flip, 100 % clining. Doug, what's up with you?

  • Those aren't electrical connectors Doug those are hydraulic couplers

  • nobody can JUDGE UNIMOG EXCEPT DIRTY ROADS

  • I've seen brodozers bigger than this unimog

  • Ah, yes, registering a car in Taxachuesetts.

  • Deflating the tire is great for moving through sand. It's great to be able to do that with the push of a button and then inflate them again.

  • Good video. Your scores aren't really for this kind of vehicle. (like lipstick on a pig I guess). This isn't for shopping, movies or going out to eat or any place you need a parking spot. This is a work vehicle ( and might nicely added extras). The laughter every 10-15sec got a bit distracting after the first minute, so I scrubbed through a fair bit of it. Thank you for sharing this. Best regards.

  • An UNIMOG, presented and explained by somebody don't know anything about UNIMOGS. No disrespect to Doug, I like his channel, but a little more research about the truck before record, makes a difference.

  • It make me chuckles every time when he said "not like a regular vehicle" UNIMOGS are NOT like any regular vehicle. They are, well.... UNIMOG'S.

  • going through the comments, this must be one of doug's videos with the most mistakes! as someone with such a long career i'm surprised

  • Unimog 5023

  • Or you could probably turn those back seats into a sleeper

  • I wonder if Earth roamer would ever have a unimog option

  • Doug surely knows a lot about cars, but little about trucks, or air brakes. And, I'm sure you will get a ticket if you get stopped, since you can not drive a vehicle with air brakes with a regular license.

  • is it just me or is it weird to see Doug in jeans.

  • Those aren’t power outlets

  • Still waiting for the AMG version

  • My car has a “donkey” button. This is the only way you can flex over all those Veyron’s owners…

  • REQUESTING hand book for how to kill Pikachu or Unimog

  • you should put in class one driver in it and unimog is not slow truck at alll

  • My daughter has driven one with a drilling rig on the back!

  • The Unimog eats RAMS for breakfast.

  • This is this guy's first Unimog experience.

  • its the truck from the Bjork video for "Army of Me"

  • The number one field of use for Unimogs is agriculture, hence features like a sideways lifting bed

  • When I was in the simpson desert (the central desert in Australia) a couple of weeks ago we ran into a unimog that was towing a brand new Ford Ranger that had cracked the chassis rail because of the intense dunes. The tow (just to Mt Dare, a small town in the north of South Australia) cost the poor couple $27,000 aud. Don't try crossing the French line if you aren't prepared!

    • @JG B or they could just... GO AROUND THAT PART

    • Spoke to a friend tonight on the Chinese attacking Australia. He bought up the fact that they won't make it through the ruthless rawness of this country to the eastern side.

  • LOL, so purely by coincidence, I have now watched reviews of the only two vehicles Doug's seen with power front windows and rear crank windows, one after the other.

  • Would love to have one. But they are always incredibly expensive. Even the 25 year old imported ones.

  • UNIMOG is not a car, but a tool.

  • So lemme get this straight... you can't stall a unimog?

  • This thing looks functional on Mars

  • The trk

  • Doug did you try the option with the Burmeister 18 speaker model with soft close doors?

  • Damn was looking for one in anthracite steel grey.

  • Cord used a similar transmission in the late 1930s.

  • That’s my next car!! Greetings from Paris 😂😂

    • Joa, excellent idea, 100% the proper type of vehicle for downtown Paris. And if someone starts a discussion about this rag, just wipe him away. You need a bit more power though. We suggest a biturbo Mercedes V8 with at least 800 hp. Au Reservoir!

  • 6:58 Come one, that is a deal breaker for me :-)

  • Why the giggling?

  • Tiny peen vehicle

  • The buttons he press he doesn´t know what are they for, are for the rotative lights you cna place and the mirrors and glass heat.

  • Anyone who have test a Unimog knows how incredible machine is. Are very expensive and incredibles machines.

  • This is not a pick up, this is a offroad tool with wich you can tow eg trees out of a forrest. cs-tv.org/tv/video-lvoZAlna90g.html

  • mercedes makes semi trucks in europe, most of this stuff is normal for those.

    • Mercedes also make full trucks, like the actros series. Trucks in Europe have the engine under the cabin to to allow longer trailer to use max allowed total lenght. cs-tv.org/tv/video-UhEt8c1-CrU.html

  • Review the mercedes zetros its insane

  • Imagine a Maybach Unimog

  • Can they ship to Philippines if I buy in your website? How much does it costs?

  • Up next: Time to give Bagger 293 a Doug Score.

  • Cool Down Dough, You are loosing it, Your screaming is so tiresome, I had to close down after 2 minuts, I did not care to listen any more

  • Those ports are hydraulic ports not electrical ports

  • No One : Le Doug : 5:17 Le Mercedes : StOp RoAsTiNg ThE Sh*T OuT Of OuR TrUcK

  • All the fake laughing in this video gave me a goddamn headache.

  • It's like he's about to burst out in giggling laughter and pee his pants. Probably needs to lay off the shrooms before filming.

  • The U500 is rather small beside the U5023. But I'd love to have either someday....

  • Doug im pretty sure those ports on the front and back are hydraulic accesory ports

  • Doug are you stupid? The Beacon button is for the revolving light on the roof and the tire hanging on a string is for the heated mirrors
