M-B's spec changes for construction
Daimler has revealed a number of specification changes to Mercedes-Benz products for the construction market. Firstly, for Arocs operators requiring a simpler dashboard arrangement, it has reinstated the conventional “Classic Cockpit” as a lower specification alternative to the latest Multimedia layout.
Four-axle versions of the Arocs can now also be ordered with the Active Brake Assist 5 system, which uses camera and radar to monitor the front of the truck for obstructions and vulnerable road users, automatically braking as required. Latest versions of Actros and Arocs now have an enhanced Electronic Parking Brake, which applies itself automatically when a door is opened and the truck is stationary.
Actros models intended for on-site operation are now available with the underbody protection features already available on Arocs. These include a straight beam front axle, giving up to 85mm extra ground clearance, steel front bumper with protected headlamps and flexibly mounted steps.
The more robust components are pictured alongside the standard Actros design.
