The new Actros.
The new dimension of comfort.
From the front apron and the radiator grille right up to the roof: the striking exterior design with its specific longdistance transport style also lends the newly developed Actros a new dimension in visual terms, whilst documenting its inner strengths to impressive effect. Take, for example, the light and friendly ambience and the clear distinction between the workplace and the living area. With its cabs geared to various operating profiles the new Actros opens up hitherto unattained dimensions of working, living and sleeping in long-distance transport. All 2,500 mm wide cabs come with a level floor as standard. The headroom between the seats is as much as 2.13 m. What’s more, there is considerably more room and stowage space than in the predecessor model. Depending on their intended end use, the 2,300 mm wide cabs can optionally be fitted with a level floor throughout or with an engine tunnel in two different heights.
The new dimension of economy.
In order to make the new Actros a highly economical truck it has been equipped with many innovative and consumption-reducing features, and with particularly frugal engines: the Euro V model has up to 7 percent lower consumption than its predecessor. In addition to Euro V and EEV*, the new Actros is one of the first vehicles on the market with engines which meet the requirements of Euro VI as standard – giving a consumption advantage of up to 5 percent over the Euro V model. And now a brand new feature is available: Predictive Powertrain Control, an innovative system which takes into account the road ahead when changing gear, allowing for any inclines, and in so doing can reduce consumption by as much as a further 5 percent. Alongside the innovative technology on board the new Actros, services tailored to your needs also help to keep overall costs particularly low.
All measures which result in fewer costs and increased profit.
* Euro V and EEV only available for the 310 kW, 330 kW and 375 kW models.
Trucks cost money. Ours saves it.
The overall economy of a truck is determined by many factors. Some cannot be influenced. But others can: thus, for example, alongside the innovative, cost-reducing vehicle technology deployed, services which are perfectly aligned to the new Actros also ensure that you can positively influence cost factors such as consumption and repairs and maintenance as well. Giving an even more profitable complete solution. Alongside the innovative technology on board the new Actros, services tailored to your needs also help to keep overall costs particularly low:
They range from the telematics-based FleetBoard system and Service Contracts, through attractive leasing, finance and insurance products, to driver training courses for a driving style that cuts consumption. Find out more in our Multimedia special.
The new dimension of driving dynamics.
For an incomparably good driving feel we have given the new Actros a new innovative rear axle guide on 4 x 2 vehicles, a steering system with a precise response and a wider, tauter frame. The engines are characterised by their immediate response and are available in four displacement capacities and a total of 16 output categories from 175 kW to 460 kW. In conjunction with the standard-specification Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated transmission and additional driving programs they ensure economical driving enjoyment. Plus the new Actros puts many other benefits firmly on the road, such as freely selectable frame overhangs for better bodymounting ability and an extended range of wheelbases.
The new dimension in payload capacity.
Ensuring that, when it comes to payload and volume, you get more of both: in the new Actros Loader and the new Actros Volumer you have two specialists at your disposal that can transport more – as standard. Lower weight, more payload – from the radiator grille to the end crossmember.
The new Actros Loader was specifically designed to meet the requirements of payload-sensitive sectors. And the new Actros Volumer shows how tractor units and rigid trucks need to be built today, to make high-volume haulage especially profitable.
