The Mercedes-Benz OM606 is a 3.0 litre inline-six cylinder (R6/I6) double overhead camshaft (DOHC) diesel engine with indirect injection manufactured by Mercedes-Benz between 1993 and 2001. It replaced the single overhead camshaft (SOHC) OM603 engine.

It is related to the straight-4 2.0 and 2.2 litre OM604 and the straight-5 2.5 litre OM605 engine families of the same era.

The engine block itself is derived from the inline 6 cylinder M103 and M104 gasoline engines, with the Diesel crankshaft differing somewhat from the gasoline versions. Prior to the merge with Mercedes-Benz, AMG Affalterbach utilized the OM603 and OM606 crankshafts in modified form, for the 3.4 litre and 3.6 litre AMG M104 gasoline engine variants.[citation needed]
