These releases are in continuation of the 120-year old tradition of Mercedes-Benz heavy-duty trucks in the construction industry.
The Arocs and Actros – released last years – are the latest addition to the powerhouses in the commercial vehicle segment of the company.
Aroc is considered as the new force in construction, one that promises to take on every challenge in the construction business with tailor-made solutions for every vehicle body.
The truck combines power, robustness and efficiency in the construction industry in a unique way while bringing them into the future with innovative technology.
The Aroc is designed to provide a reliable, high-torque drive configuration to suit the construction industry down to the ground. It also offers a number of frame and suspension configurations developed to excel both on and off-road.
It powerfully masters every driving situation, equipped with a robust and high-torque engine, Mercedes PowerShift 3 and a new unique suspension and frame design, all as standard.
It comes with a durable powertrain that delivers precisely the power you need in off-road transportation, construction sites or extreme terrain.
The new Arocs also comes with increased ground clearance with high angles of approach to ensure optimized agility even in challenging road conditions.
From platform vehicles and concrete mixers to heavy-duty tippers, the new Arocs is a particularly tough and robust vehicle that will meet any challenge in construction and off-road transportation.
It features the new in-line 6-cylinder engines have higher engine efficiency through the wastegate turbocharger, the optimized viscous fan clutch and the intelligent auxiliary consumers. The OM473 (Euro III), a state of the art 6-cylinder in-line 15.6-litre engine opens a new dimension in high-performance engines.
The turbo-compound unit transforms thermal energy into mechanical energy and thus increases the operating efficiency of the engine: the engine has additional power but lowers fuel consumption by using the X-Pulse fuel-injection system which reduces the fuel quantity utilized in the engine.
The new Arocs comes with Mercedes PowerShift 3 as standard and manual gearshift as an option. The gearbox is 100 per cent made by Mercedes-Benz ensuring the best integration with engine and axles, providing a wider range of gears for operation in optimal torque ranges and optimized start-off capabilities.
The new Arocs is also equipped with a durable steel suspension. For use in heavy-duty construction site operations, the steel suspension impresses with its robust, solid construction, high performance and loadability. With the weight-optimized parabolic springs and precisely matched shock absorbers and stabilizers, you are optimally prepared even in difficult conditions.
Never compromising on safety, Mercedes-Benz offers many safety and assistance systems to reduce risks and increase comfort for the driver.
More safety is provided due to more than 400 sensors which are fitted on the truck to ensure safe and efficient driving. These safety systems include the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Acceleration Slip Regulation (ASR), Hazard warning lights flashing in case of emergency braking, Active Brake Assist 4 and Attention Assist as some of the highlight features.
