Vehicle features and
options
This chapter describes all standard, country-spe‐
cific and optional features offered with the series.
It also describes features that are not necessarily
available in your vehicle, e. g., due to the selected
options or country versions. This also applies to
safety-related functions and systems. When us‐
ing these functions and systems, the applicable
laws and regulations must be observed.
General information
The permissible trailer loads, axle loads, drawbar
node weights, and the permissible gross vehicle
weight are specified in the technical data.
The vehicle is equipped with an enhanced sus‐
pension system on the rear axle and, depending
on the vehicle type, with a more powerful cooling
system.
Before driving
Drawbar nose weight
The maximum load of the tractor is lowered by
the weight of the trailer hitch and the drawbar
nose weight. The drawbar nose weight increases
the vehicle weight. Do not exceed the approved
gross vehicle weight of the towing vehicle.
Loading
Distribute cargo as evenly as possible on the
cargo area.
Stow the load as low and close to the trailer axle
as possible. A low center of gravity in the trailer
increases the driving safety of the entire vehicle-
trailer combination.
Do not exceed the approved gross vehicle
weight of the trailer and the permissible trailer
load of the vehicle. The smaller value applies in
each case.
Tire inflation pressure
Note the tire inflation pressure of the vehicle and
trailer.
For the vehicle, the tire inflation pressure for
higher loads applies.
Information regarding the tire inflation pressure,
refer to page 296.
For the trailer, the specifications of the manufac‐
turer apply.
Flat Tire Monitor FTM
After correcting the tire inflation pressure or
hitching/unhitching a trailer, initialize the Flat Tire
Monitor, refer to page 317.
Tire Pressure Monitor TPM
After correcting the tire inflation pressure or
hitching/unhitching a trailer, reset the Tire Pres‐
sure Monitor, refer to page 310.
Exterior mirrors
Exterior mirrors, which allow the driver to see
both rear corners of the trailer, are available as
special accessories from a dealer’s service cen‐
ter or another qualified service center or repair
shop.
Power consumption
General information
Before starting to drive, check the function of the
trailer tail lights.
