- Cab-behind-engine design, permanent all-wheel drive
- Tyre pressure control system as new aid to traction
- Two and three-axle solo trucks, additional new lengths
The Mercedes-Benz Zetros is in its element when outstanding traction and maximum load-carrying capability are required. It combines extreme off-road capabilities with the load capacity of a heavy-duty truck.
Cab-behind-engine design, permanent all-wheel drive
A hallmark of the Zetros is its design as a conventional-cab truck. This results in low contours, easy entry and exit, a level, spacious cab and excellent ride comfort. Permanent all-wheel drive, robust planetary axles with high ground clearance and single tyres, three differential locks, two-stage transfer case – the superior off-road concept of the Mercedes-Benz Zetros provides the foundation for outstanding capabilities in off-road terrain.
The vehicle is powered by the proven 7.2-litre Mercedes-Benz OM 926 six-cylinder in-line engine developing 240 kW (326 hp) and featuring BlueTec technology. Power is transferred either by an eight-speed transmission with crawler gear or by an automatic torque converter transmission.
Tyre pressure control system as new aid to traction
An optional tyre pressure control system is a new feature. This is operated via pushbuttons in the cab. The four levels break down into Road, Off-Road and Sand, plus a particularly low level of tyre pressure for extreme terrain.
The Zetros range consists of solo vehicles with two or three axles. A new feature of the range is a wheelbase extended from 4800 mm to 5100 mm with an enlarged rear overhang for the two-axle Zetros. In future the Zetros 6x6 will be available with the six-cylinder in-line Mercedes-Benz OM 457 rated at 325 kW (428 hp).
