   The Engesa EE-25 series first appeared during the early 1970s and over the years has been powered by a variety of engines, the Mercedes-Benz engine is the latest of a line that includes Chrysler and Perkins units. The series is also unusual in being produced with both 4x4 and 6x6 drive configurations with the 4x4 version being the original version. Both have the same payload characteristics and can carry up to 5 000 kg on roads. Both versions usually have a vinyl-topped cab and a vinyl tilt over bows covering the cargo area. The EE-25 has been exported widely outside Brazil, where it is used for commercial as well as military purposes.

   Many Engesa EE-25 general utility trucks have been sold in the Middle East and a significant number were delivered to Angola. The Angolan versions feature a strengthened chassis frame and body work changes, plus the addition of an air cleaner to the side of the bonnet.

   Libya has been another customer with their examples including a 4x4 NBC decontamination variant. Numerous other variants have been produced including an ambulance, crash and fire tenders, a recovery version, fuel and water tankers, mobile workshops and van-bodied models used for command and communications. A shelter-carrying version was also available.

   The 6x6 versions all feature the Engesa boomerang rear axle with its walking beam suspension which enables the EE-25 to cross very rough terrain while keeping the load platform relatively stable.
