The reliability you rightly expect of a Mercedes-Benz.

A tradition which gives rise to vehicles you can rely on, as exemplified by the Mercedes-Benz Trucks range. Trucks which have been built to always deliver top performance, even in the most extreme conditions – with the reliability you rightly expect of a Mercedes-Benz.

Trucks you can trust – for more reliability.

Operators who earn their money in roadbound goods transport need absolute reliability – in other words: trucks they can count on. With the new Mercedes-Benz Trucks range, we are able to offer you vehicles incorporating the rich fund of experience and expertise acquired over more than 100 years of German engineering, equipped with leading Mercedes-Benz vehicle technology and components tested under the toughest conditions. This applies to engines, transmissions and drive axles as well as frames, chassis, suspension and cabs.

Everything is perfectly coordinated, in order to meet all requirements reliably, even in extreme conditions and difficult terrain. Compelling quality that is immediately apparent the first time you take to the wheel – and which will continue to deliver benefits for many years to come.

Robust down to the last detail.

From off-highway applications to concrete mixers and heavy-duty tippers, the on-road, off-road and all-wheel drive variants of the Arocs offer a particularly tough and robust vehicle to meet any challenge in construction site haulage.

The robustness and load-bearing capacity of the Arocs are fully reflected in the cabs – in the durable cab shell consisting of 100 % fully galvanised sheet metal and in the athletic, powerful design. And to take the dread out of large approach/departure angles and ramp breakover angles, we have additionally provided the Arocs with optimised ground clearance. As you can see, the Arocs is up to any challenge.


The Arocs for construction transport has ample power to cope with any driving situation. Because we have equipped it with the robust, powerful OM 460 Euro III engines, with Mercedes PowerShift 3 automatic transmission and with a unique suspension and frame design. Engine, transmission and axles are manufactured exclusively by Mercedes-Benz and designed specifically for the special requirements of construction transport.

Component protection.

For strong resilience the Arocs is equipped with particular protective features for special tasks. These include the protective plate for the radiator and engine that comes as standard on construction vehicles as well. Also available are steel grilles for the front headlamps and a cover that protects the major components from bulk materials. In short: everything to prevent needless damage and consequently unnecessary repair costs.

Finally, a reason to look forward to Monday morning.

When trying out the seat for the first time and after countless trips – the cabs of the new Arocs demonstrate what distinguishes a coveted workplace. With exemplary ergonomics, a high level of functionality and many practical details that simply make the tough job easier. The New Arocs range is a shining example of how this is done.
