News: Mercedes-Benz New Antos Truck

If you have noticed, 80% of the Semi trailers on Kenyan roads wear the three pronged star.

The Actros is such a hit with trucking and the Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles division isn’t letting that get to their heads as they are already designing a new kid on the block; the Antos.

The Antos is designed as a short-radius distribution truck and pioneers a new class of maneuverable and versatile workhorse and will be revealed in full at the Commercial Vehicle IAA this coming September.

The possibilities of such a truck are virtually endless; refrigerator boxes, flat beds, high cubes and Mercedes-Benz plans to offer the Antos in two cab styles, with no fewer than thirteen power train options (ranging from 238 – 510hp) and a whopping 67 wheelbase lengths to make it almost infinitely adaptable to whatever use its owners and operators have in mind.
