Arocs 8×4 raises the level of strength and robustness of Mercedes-Benz trucks in Brazil

The Arocs 8×4 is equipped with a series of specific features, like off-the-road tires (OTR) with exclusive 5 tonnes reinforced wheels, a technical capacity to face up to 58 tons of gross vehicle weight rating, and 150 tons of maximum traction capacity, depending on the operating conditions to serve customer needs. The truck is prepared for dumping devices with 20 to 24 cubic meters of volumetric load capacity. In addition, the Arocs 8×4 has a gearbox with wider gears, increasing its strength and service life and different operation modes – e.g., “Economy” for fuel-saving or “Power Off-Road” for demanding terrain. The vehicle also has an optimized chassis that improves driving stability and rigidity. Further highlights of the Arocs 8×4 are an extra flexible step to enter the cabin easier, as well as fuel- and AdBlue-tanks, which can be fully fueled from one side of the truck and are made of high-strength plastic material.
