STUTTGART, Germany — The redesigned 2013 Mercedes-Benz Unimog debuted on Friday with an eye toward greater fuel efficiency.

The 2013 Unimog is relatively tame compared to the over-the-top Unimog concept that debuted two years ago. The Unimog concept, which celebrated 60 years of Daimler production of the iconic vehicle, featured radical styling, a fully exposed chassis and oversized wheels.

The Unimog is the German automaker's heavy-duty commercial truck that has become somewhat of a legendary vehicle among truck aficionados.

Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks held the world premiere of a 10-model Unimog lineup and said vehicles will begin rolling off the assembly line in Worth in September. The vehicles include a Unimog all-terrain vehicle and a Unimog implement carrier. The Unimog all-terrain vehicle features a revamped midengine setup. The Unimogs also get an updated cab with better visibility and new hydraulic systems.

The new lineup introduces the new BlueEfficiency Power medium-duty engine generation in the automaker's special trucks. The four- and six-cylinder engines have outputs ranging from 156 horsepower to 354 hp. Parent Daimler said they "combine low fuel consumption with extremely clean exhausts."

Edmunds says: You didn't really expect the 2013 Unimog to look exactly like the concept, did you?
