  • The vehicle exhibited at ADIPEC is a Zetros 3643 AS 6x6 Tractor-head, sporting 426hp and providing a GCW (Gross Combination Weight) of up to 116 tonnes, thus highly capable of hauling large and heavy equipment and supplies.
  • Roland Schneider, President & CEO of Daimler Commercial Vehicles MENA: “With the Zetros, Mercedes-Benz is updating the long tradition and remarkable success of heavy-duty bonnet trucks in the MENA region. The Zetros stands out with its robustness, practicality and impressive design, providing extreme off-road capabilities and superior driving comfort in difficult terrain, perfectly matching the high demands in the Oil & Gas segment.”
  • ADIPEC is taking place at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 7 to 10 November.

Emirates Motor Company (EMC), the Mercedes-Benz authorized distributor in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the flagship company of Al Fahim Group, and the Regional Office of Mercedes-Benz are set to show the Mercedes-Benz Zetros 3643 AS Tractor-head, an off-road utility truck for extreme operations, at the upcoming Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC 2016). The exhibition will run at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 7 to 10 November. 

The robust cab-behind-engine (bonnet) truck with its ability to haul large and heavy equipment and supplies will enable Mercedes-Benz to further increase the market share in the heavy utility truck segment. Roland Schneider, President & CEO of Daimler Commercial Vehicles MENA: “With the Zetros, Mercedes-Benz is updating the long tradition and remarkable success of heavy-duty bonnet trucks in the MENA region. The Zetros stands out with its robustness, practicality and impressive design, providing extreme off-road capabilities and superior driving comfort in difficult terrain, perfectly matching the high demands in the Oil & Gas segment.”

Boasting superior power, robustness and efficiency, the heavy-duty truck is available in two- and three-axle variants (4x4 and 6x6), offering GVW from 18 to 40 tonnes. The top-of-the-range 3643 AS 6x6 Tractor-head model exhibited at ADIPEC boasts an impressive GCW of up to 116t. 
In-line 6-cylinder engines available for the Zetros range from a 7.2l version with 326 hp up to the powerful 12l variant sporting 428 hp. In addition, Mercedes-Benz offers a tailor-made version of the Zetros developed by the in-house Mercedes-Benz Custom Tailored Trucks (CTT) division that can be delivered with a crew-cab providing seating capacity for up to 7 people.

Bilal Al Ribi, EMC Daimler CV General Manager, said: “We are delighted to introduce our customers in Abu Dhabi to the Mercedes-Benz Zetros during our participation at ADIPEC 2016. Offering exceptional ride comfort and stability on the most extreme off-road terrains, the Zetros is ideally suited for tough applications and operations such as mining, oilfields and quarries.  Given its outstanding high load-bearing capacity and ability to meet today's extreme operating conditions, we are confident that the Zetros will soon become the preferred choice in the high-performance construction vehicles segment.”

A hallmark of the Zetros is its design as a cab-behind-engine truck. The truck sports robust planetary hub reduction axles with high ground clearance and single or twin tyres, up to four differential locks, and a two-stage transfer case, providing the foundation for outstanding capabilities in off-road terrain. Furthermore, a tyre pressure control system offers choices for on- and off-road use, driving across sand, and a particularly low air pressure for extreme situations. Mercedes-Benz trucks are widely recognized for their efficiency, reliability and quality and the brand's and EMC's fleet line-up comprises a full range of medium and heavy-duty trucks.
