History of BlueTEC®

All Mercedes-Benz diesel engines from the 2009 model year to present day feature BlueTEC® technology. This came in response stricter diesel emissions regulations that required more advanced emissions control systems on all diesel vehicles.

What Does BlueTEC® Technology Include?

There are two emissions-reducing technologies involved with BlueTEC®.

  • AdBlue: This technology relies on urea injection to chemically convert nitrogen oxide into harmless water vapor and nitrogen.
  • DeNOX: With an oxidizing catalytic converters, particulate filter, and peripheral systems, this technology reduces the amount of nitrogen oxide and soot that come from Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles.

Engines with these technologies generate greater torque output while maintaining excellent efficiency whether you are traveling through East Brunswick or across the coast.
