We all know about the Unimog, but have you heard about Mercedes-Benz’s other tough truck offering, the Zetros? The Zetros is Mercedes’ answer to extreme-terrain hauling. Do you need to transport a mobile generator to a remote job site or haul ten tons of scientific equipment down a road scratched into the Alaskan wilderness? If so, this is your truck.

The Zetros is available in either 4×4 or 6×6 configurations. Both versions are equipped with a massive 7.2-liter, inline-6 diesel that floods the drivetrain with a mind-bending 959 lb-ft of torque. The differentials lock. The tire pressure is adjustable on the fly. A single axle can carry 9 tons of load.

What if you need all of that hauling ability to carry luxurious living quarters over any conceivable terrain? Well, it can do that too.

More photos of one of those trucks after the jump.

Thanks to our friend Mas for the tip!
