SK is a range of trucks and heavy tractor units developped by Mercedes from 1988 to 1998. The Schwere Klasse (heavy range) replaces the NG (Neue Generation) range launched in 1973.
Equipped with a V6 or V8 engine meeting the Euro 1 then the Euro 2 norm requirements, the Mercedes SK yields power from 260 to 530 hp. It is one of the first trucks to benefit from the EPS (Electronic Power Shift) and EDC (Electronic Diesel Control) technologies : the EPS shifts the gears electronically and the EDC optimizes the engine’s working.
Rigid with two or three axles, the SK has a GVWR of 16 to 22 tons. The SK 1748 LS tractor unit (LS for Luftfederung Sattelschlepper : air suspension tractor unit) was the most powerful truck in Europe: equipped with a OM442 V8 492hp engine, it was awarded the “Truck of the year” in 1990.
En 1998, the SK range was replaced by the Actros.
