Reliability

Reliability is a must, not a bonus.

A tradition which gives rise to vehicles you can rely on, as exemplified by the Mercedes-Benz Trucks range. Trucks which have been built to always deliver top performance, even in the most extreme conditions – with the reliability you rightly expect of Mercedes-Benz.

Trucks you can trust – for more reliability. Operators who earn their money in road-bound goods transport need absolute reliability - in other words: trucks they can count on.

With the new Mercedes-Benz Trucks range, we are able to offer you vehicles incorporating the rich fund of experience and expertise acquired over more than 100 years of German engineering, equipped with leading Mercedes-Benz vehicle technology and components tested under the toughest conditions. This applies to engines, transmissions and drive axles as well as frames, chassis, suspension and cabs.

Everything is perfectly coordinated, in order to meet all requirements reliably, even in extreme conditions and difficult terrain. Compelling quality that is immediately apparent the first time you take to the wheel – and which will continue to deliver benefits for many years to come.

Exceptional reliability through:

  • New 6-cylinder in-line engines which are particularly reliable, efficient and durable
  • Mercedes PowerShift3 for easy operation, reduced shift times, precise gear selection and fuel savings
  • 1- or 2-disc clutches for maximum torque of up to 3000 Nm and for high gross combination weights
  • Efficient hypoid axles and robust planetary axles for high axle loads
  • Extensive testing and high-quality production process guarantees that every truck earns its star
  • Up to 20% longer service life compared to predecessors
  • Increased cooling capacity for engine and transmission
  • Increased maintenance intervals
