Unimog and Zetros convince off-road fans with their off-road competence.

The readers of the OFF ROAD magazine have voted and we say thank you! Because two of our Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks were voted into first place in the vote for the off-road vehicle of the year 2022. This proves: Unimog or Zetros not only achieve almost all goals, but also all hearts.

Strong performance.

Real adventures begin where paved roads end. To get to places few people can reach, versatile vehicles are needed. The high-terrain Unimog knows hardly any limits: Differential locks, portal axles and a torsionally flexible frame ensure freedom off-road, as does the tyre pressure control system. The Zetros with permanent all-wheel drive and differential locks on all axles as well as a large slope angle allows access to almost any terrain.


Adaptable, efficient and durable. These are just some of the characteristics that make the Unimog and Zetros the ideal travelling companion!


Dr. Ralf Forcher, Head of Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks

Both vehicles are extremely capable off-road, defy the toughest conditions and can be built up into optimal travel companions – for example as an off-road camper, a robust and reliable expedition vehicle or for rallies.

Thank you very Matsch!
