Operators and contractors in the construction sector can look forward to the launch of the Mercedes-Benz Arocs, a new line of trucks and tractors that should meet a wide array of needs. With 16 different output variants—from 238 horsepower all the way through to 625 horsepower—and configurations of 2 to 4 axles, the Arocs range is designed to diversify.
Aside from providing a range suitable for different applications, the Arocs are also designed to meet Euro VI emissions standards, thanks in part to the BlueTec 6 engines. The trucks also come with PowerShift 3 as a standard feature—a first for Mercedes-Benz for its construction vehicles.
The Arocs will come with two new product groups. There’s the Loader, which features reduced kerb weight for tractor units that are payload-optimized and also for concrete mixers. It’s perfect for weight-sensitive operations. Then there’s the Grounder, which are meant to handle extreme conditions. With uncompromising performance even under the toughest tasks, the Grounder is sure to be a hit on construction sites all over the world.
The Mercedes-Benz Arocs is set to debut at the Bauma trade fair in April next year.
