The Mercedes Axor is introduced in the market as the younger brother of the Mercedes Actros built specifically for the purpose of light construction sites. Contrary to Actros, moderately weaker engines are installed in the Axor possessing subtler characteristics. The engine options are broad and come in tractor and tripper forms. Mercedes Axor, known for its great payload, long durability is proven to be the distinctive feature of tractors and rigid trucks. They are widely used for the local distributions and long-distance haulage. Their heavy-duty strength gives them a good edge over other trucks. The Axor is available in two versions: Axor-R and Axor-C.
Mercedes has offered a large variety of exclusive accessories in the Axor such as an air condition unit which is mounted on the roof.
