Mercedes-Benz Trucks Get the Blind Spot Assist

The Blind Spot Assist system is no longer new to Mercedes-Benz luxury cars and vans. The technology provides them added safety features when changing lanes. Daimler, recognizing the added benefit that the tech would provide to its trucks, has integrated the system into them. Early this month, the company premiered its first-ever Mercedes-Benz truck with the Blind Spot Assist. The Blind Spot Assist uses a strategically-placed short-range radar sensor located at the rear axle to scan the areas on the entire length of the truck whether it is in semi-trailer or in a trailer combination.

Mercedes-Benz Zetros Transformed Into a Mobile Luxury Apartment

The Mercedes-Benz Zetros is a truck capable of conquering harsh off-road conditions. This is the reason why it is preferred by companies as their medium in transporting goods from one point to another. The vehicle is also one of the favorites of some of the world’s armed forces due to its versatility. It is very rare or unusual to see one fitted with a luxurious cabin because its massive frame does not exactly match an executive ride. Usually, the Mercedes-Benz vehicles which are transformed into cozy dwelling places are the Sprinter, Vito, and V-Class types.

What makes this one very special is that it has been converted into a camper. A few days ago, we released details and photos of the Mercedes Marco Polo, which is the three-pointed star brand’s answer to the Volkswagen California campervan. However, some may find the cabin sticking in its roof very awkward, pretty much the same with its VW rival. Despite the smaller sleeping room of the Mercedes Unimog U5000 camper, it seems to be better… Continue Reading »
