Mercedes-Benz in long-distance haulage.

To lead the way, you need vehicles that deliver outstanding performance both on the road and in the accounts. The Actros fits the bill here. Because it offers a high standard of comfort. Because its many fuel-saving technical innovations and perfectly coordinated services will assure you of really profitable operations. Because it is a particularly light, safe and effortlessly superior performer. And because its diverse range of equipment and model variants offers a perfectly configured vehicle for virtually every type of use in long-distance haulage.

Reliability-more than just a word for us. It stands for a tradition extending back over more than 100 years.

A tradition which gives rise to vehicles you can rely on, as exemplified by the Mercedes-Benz Trucks range. Trucks which have been built to always deliver top performance, even in the most extreme conditions – with the reliability you rightly expect of Mercedes-Benz.

Trucks you can trust – for more reliability. Operators who earn their money in road-bound goods transport need absolute reliability – in other words: trucks they can count on.

With the new Mercedes-Benz Trucks range, we are able to offer you vehicles incorporating the rich fund of experience and expertise acquired over more than 100 years of German engineering, equipped with leading Mercedes-Benz vehicle technology and components tested under the toughest conditions. This applies to engines, transmissions and drive axles as well as frames, chassis, suspension and cabs.

Everything is perfectly coordinated, in order to meet all requirements reliably, even in extreme conditions and difficult terrain. Compelling quality that is immediately apparent the first time you take to the wheel – and which will continue to deliver benefits for many years to come.

Exceptional reliability through:

  • New 6-cylinder in-line engines which are particularly reliable, efficient and durable
  • Mercedes PowerShift3 for easy operation, reduced shift times, precise gear selection and fuel savings
  • 1- or 2-disc clutches for maximum torque of up to 3000 Nm and for high gross combination weights
  • Efficient hypoid axles and robust planetary axles for high axle loads
  • Extensive testing and high-quality production process guarantees that every truck earns its star
  • Up to 20% longer service life compared to predecessors
  • Increased cooling capacity for engine and transmission
  • Increased maintenance intervals

Efficiency – the new Actros redefines efficiency.

Assets you can bank on: in addition to its high reliability, the new range also boasts fuel savings of up to 6% in comparison to its predecessor. An ideal basis for particularly efficient operations.

The new Actros – for more efficiency. In addition to its reliable and durable design, efficiency is the second core characteristic of the new Actros, based first and foremost on its particularly low fuel consumption. Low wear and a higher resale value are additional merits contributing to its high overall efficiency. To this end, numerous innovative technical measures were implemented in the course of developing the new Actros. These result in engines with high performance and lower fuel consumption, a powertrain which enables an economical driving style, and an aerodynamic design honed down to the finest details in the interests of fuel efficiency. All in all, with fuel savings of up to 6% compared to its predecessor, the new Actros offers an ideal basis for more profitable operations than ever.

The further advanced Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated gearshift combines an economical driving style with smooth gear changing and a high level of driving comfort. The application-matched and aerodynamic cabs of the new Actros also contribute to the high level of efficiency. In short, the new Actros offers you a vehicle which is tailored perfectly to the needs of practically any application. Climb aboard!”

For feeling safe – from start to finish.

When it comes to safety, you’ll be way ahead of the competition with the new Actros. In addition to the proven electronic braking system with ABS, ASR, Brake Assist and hill-hold control, the standard Stability Control Assist and the optionally available Proximity Control Assist with stop-and-go function provide a high level of safety. The new Attention Assist can further enhance safety. Based on specific factors such as steering behaviour it can recognise growing driver fatigue and inattention, and can issue visual and acoustic reminders to take a break. Attention Assist is available as an option in conjunction with the optional Lane Keeping Assist. Even more driver relief is provided by the optional rain and light sensor, the co-driver’s mirror with manoeuvring function, the tyre pressure monitoring system and a coupling monitored by a sensor that displays the locking state in the instrument cluster.

More innovations, enhanced safety, fewer accidents.

The powerful headlamps of the new Actros are optionally available with bi-xenon design. Furthermore, safety is enhanced upon request with the new LED daytime running lamps and LED tail lamps. The standard-specification “follow-me-home” lighting points the way for the driver when getting in and out of the truck. A powerful engine brake ensures low brake wear. The Actros can furthermore be equipped with the new High-Performance Brake1). A newly developed powerful and at the same time quiet retarder provides even more comfortable braking. Instead of oil the more efficient and lighter retarder now uses the engine’s coolant for cooling. It is fully integrated into the braking system and supplies a braking torque of up to 3500 Nm. Optionally available ‘Safety Packs’ enhance the safety level and as a result of inexpensive package prices, attractive leasing or financing terms and lower insurance premiums2) also contribute to higher profitability.
