Mercedes-Benz conventional-type trucks – Missions accomplished
worldwide for more than 50 years.
Since building the world’s first truck more than 100 years ago, Mercedes-Benz has repeatedly set the standards in
truck engineering. Today, the company is the world’s largest truck manufacturer. And continues to fly the flag with
the most modern conventional-type all-wheel-drive truck of today. Mercedes-Benz began producing light and
medium-weight conventional-type trucks in 1959. A design so successful that vehicles were exported to many
countries around the world. The new Zetros extends the legend of conventional-type trucks and Unimogs from
Time for the next generation. The former conventional-type trucks which are still successfully and
globally in action are famed for their extraordinary
robustness – no matter whether heat, dust or rough
roads, excess load, or constant use under the most
difficult of conditions. And a worthy successor is
finally in sight. The new Mercedes-Benz has been
produced step-by-step in almost eight years of development work and extensively testing: The Zetros.
The only conventional-type all-wheel-drive truck
ready to master all modern demands. Meeting the
uncompromising quality standards that MercedesBenz customers expect. Worldwide.

Modern look – trusted quality.
Where safe roads are few and far between – on disaster relief assignments or military operations
such as peace-keeping missions – the Zetros is sure to have the answer.
The all-wheel-drive conventional-type truck to master
all missions. Demands on crew and vehicle have risen
continuously over recent years. The new Zetros from
Mercedes-Benz follows the path of conventional-type vehicles that enjoyed legendary status worldwide. It offers
all that is needed to meet today’s extreme operational conditions. Its traditionally low design height makes it ideal
for rail or air transport. And it gives the crew an unparalleled feeling of safety, whatever the situation may be.
With all the advantages of full-line design. The new
Zetros follows the full-line design concept developed for
the Mercedes-Benz family of special-purpose vehicles.
Whether 0.5 or 100.0 tonnes – parts, engines and control
element layouts for all payload categories come from our
standard production line. Our customers profit from the
technically-mature production line engineering that
Mercedes-Benz offers. And benefit from high quality standards and access to our fully-integrated, reliable service
network worldwide.
Supremacy in off-road terrain. The
conventional design reduces the
crew’s workload and delivers a
virtually ideal weight distribution,
plus payload reserves on the front
axle. Compared with cab-over-engine
designs, the standard production,
all-wheel chassis and drive train,
with cab behind engine, combines
a much smoother ride with extraordinary off-road capability, even
in extreme terrain.

Zetros: A perfect fit.
Intuitive handling and operation.
Full-line design commonalities: Carlike, standard production control elements help drivers master the Zetros
quickly and confidently. Its comfortable drive and excellent handling make
long assignments possible, without
tiredness or loss of coancentration.
Thanks to the outstandingly spacious
cap. So drivers can fully exploit all
the technical features that the Zetros
has to offer.
Transportable in every respect. The
new Zetros from Mercedes-Benz is
not only extremely mobile and designed for high payloads, but is also
fully compatible with Hercules C 130
transport or GIC International Loading Gauge parameters. A result of
the vehicle’s low height, which also
facilitates quick and safe boarding for
the crew.
Cab over engine
Conventional cab
Ready to meet every contingency.
On operations in crisis areas, being
able to rely on the vehicle whatever
the situation is key. The answer: the
new Zetros. The balanced axle load
distribution guarantees safe handling
regardless of load condition. The
spacious 3-man cab can be upgraded
with state-of-the-art ballistic and
mine protection. Enhancing crew
safety, without losing the outstanding
off-road driving characteristics.
Zetros: Easy loading all the way.
Won’t let you down in an emergency.
Like all Mercedes-Benz vehicles, the
Zetros profits from a strong service
network, easy-to-repair technology,
and prompt spare-part availability in
every corner of the world. And minor
maintenance work? No problem. The
forward-tilting hood gives quick
access to engine and auxiliaries, without the crew having to leave the cab.
