Work better, drive better, live better – the new Actros shows how it’s done.
Comfort. The new Actros lends concepts such as freedom of movement and atmosphere a whole new meaning without losing sight of drivers’ everyday work. To promote drivers’ productivity and counteract fatigue, we have redefined comfort
once again. From the new workplace designed for intuitive use with Multimedia Cockpit and MirrorCam through cutting-edge connectivity and networking to the broad range of driving and assistance systems, such as Active Drive Assist,
which is optionally available for certain Actros models – everything serves to offer the driver an outstanding environment for work and relaxation that makes breaks equally as comfortable as the time spent at the wheel. We call this a new
dimension of comfort.
Comfort and work in perfect harmony.
Comfort is more than just luxury. It is our answer to the need for higher standards in long-distance haulage and heavy-duty distribution haulage, providing for pleasant working and driving conditions.
Ergonomics and driving comfort.
Your workplace in the Actros. Modern, ergonomic, practical,motivating and not least of all efficiency-boosting. Whether
you are a driver or fleet operator, we’re convinced you’ll be delighted by the workplace in the new Actros. It offers the
driver the best possible working and driving conditions. And through intelligent networking with headquarters and logistics
processes it contributes to even better performance. This promise is borne out by the new Multimedia Cockpit and the
new multifunction steering wheel with Touch Control Buttons, for example. Plus the new MirrorCam1), which replaces
conventional rear-view mirrors to make lane changing, turning off and manoeuvring safer. Plus the new, electronic parking brake, which is activated automatically when the engine is
switched off. Driving and assistance systems, the familiar high standard of ergonomics and intuitive operation are further
attributes that help to ensure that working with the new Actros is above all easier.
Enhanced driving comfort. Relaxed. And efficient. The enhanced driving comfort in the new Actros is the result of
optimum ergonomics and innovative technology. This covers proven components such as the excellent suspension, the highly responsive steering and the Mercedes PowerShift 3 gearshift system, as well as systems such as enhanced
Predictive Powertrain Control, the new Traffic Sign Assist feature and new Active Drive Assist, which is optionally
available for certain Actros models to conjure up a uniquely safe and assured feeling at the wheel.
Efficiently relieving the driver’s workload. Particularly in long-distance haulage, delegating tasks relieves the strain
and reduces stress. New Active Drive Assist is available for certain Actros models as an efficient means of relieving the
driver’s workload. Active Drive Assist combines the functions of various driving and assistance systems to boost driving
safety. This results in added safety due to a reduced risk of accidents, combined with an economical, fuel-saving driving
style. In a nutshell: reduced stress and strain all round.
Anyone who spends a lot of time on the road needs space of their own. And space for the essentials that are on board during long journeys. This is why the cabs of the Actros offer particularly spacious interiors – with vast amounts of stowage space.
Living and sleeping comfort.
With the SoloStar Concept and the extremely comfortable beds, the new Actros has all the qualities that really count when it comes to living and sleeping comfort in the long-distance transport sector.
With its cabs, the new Actros offers an ideal option for virtually every type of requirement in long-distance haulage and heavy-duty distribution haulage. A perfect combination of design and functionality which is also underscored in unique fashion by its striking exterior.
The fifth generation of the system assists the driver in that, under ideal conditions and within the system’s capabilities, it can perform emergency braking when approaching stationary and moving objects, and perform partial or full braking for moving pedestrians, thus mitigating or even preventing accidents entirely.
Active Drive Assist*
This new driving assistance system helps the driver to maintain a safe distance from the traffic ahead and to keep the vehicle in the centre of the lane. On long monotonous stretches in particular, it offers a high level of safety and stress-reducing comfort for enhanced driver safety.
* Not available on all models.
Instead of using conventional mirrors, the new Actros comes equipped with the innovative, aerodynamically designed MirrorCam. Besides cutting fuel consumption by up to 1.3%, it provides an ideal view rearward and around the area of the A pillar. In addition, the MirrorCam improves safety, for example by automatically panning the camera image when manoeuvring, turning corners or changing lanes.
* Not available on all ADR vehicles
For a high level of driving, working and operating convenience, the new Actros is equipped with the innovative Multimedia Cockpit, a high-resolution (10") colour display that replaces the conventional instrument cluster and provides a clear display of all driving and vehicle information. It is supplemented by the Multi-Touch-Display in the same size on the dashboard.
* Not available on all models
Multimedia Cockpit, interactive*
The Multimedia Cockpit, interactive is an expansion of the Multimedia Cockpit. The central display has a 12" screen and permits a choice between two screen designs. It also includes a navigation system, Traffic Sign Assist and Remote Online for the control of various vehicle functions via the smartphone.
* Not available on all models
Truck App Portal
The secondary display provides access to the MercedesBenz Truck App Portal. This is the market place for apps designed to improve the performance of truck fleets. The apps are able to access vehicle data in real time, not only making the driver’s day to day work easier, but also adding to the efficiency of the fleet as a whole by means of intelligent networking.
Enhanced Predictive Powertrain Control
The system integrates a driving style optimised for the route topography into the operation of the automatic transmission and, in conjunction with the precisely coordinated shift strategy, allows fuel savings of up to 5% to be achieved. The new extended functions of Predictive Powertrain Control now enable use of the system's benefits on A and B roads, too. In addition to the satellite-based positioning system and precise 3D maps, Predictive Powertrain Control also uses the Traffic Sign Assist feature.
With Mercedes- Benz Uptime we are pursuing a clear objective: to permanently minimise unscheduled vehicle downtime and to make repairs predictable resulting in increased vehicle availability.
The first of a new generation. The launch of the new Actros is being celebrated with a limited special edition of just 35 units for the UK – the "EDITION 1". With added comfort, added exclusivity and added safety – thanks to outstanding innovations such as MirrorCam and Active Brake Assist 5.
The new Actros NGT.
Ecological: of all fossil fuels natural gas possesses the highest ratio between developed energy and the quantity of polluting emissions emitted. It contributes to reducing the smog and the greenhouse emissions.
Safe: filling is as simple as for other traditional fuels. Additionally, the CNG is lighter than air and therefore does not stagnate in the event of a leak
Economical: thanks to low CNG costs in Europe and the government incentives in many countries, running costs are lower than those for diesel.
Convenient: the gas filling is fast and the CNG station network is the most widespread in Europe. In addition, CNG vehicles are often free from traffic restrictions.
During the construction of our trucks, we always use the strictest quality standards: Real-life requirements. Or in short: Your requirements.
For us, this means providing you with trucks that operate without a hitch, even in extreme conditions and in difficult terrain. In other words: "Trucks you can trust".
As your partner who helps you to master your daily transport tasks efficiently, we will continue to put our all into ensuring you have reliable vehicles at your disposal. With the wealth of experience that comes from more than 110 years in vehicle manufacturing. With trucks boasting robust components that have been tried and tested thousands of times and equipment designed to cope with the topographic and climatic conditions that prevail where the vehicles are to be operated.
Tested to the highest standards: yours.
From the windscreen wiper to the brake lamp – at Mercedes-Benz, reliability is built-in as standard. This comes from a recognition that every component is important – right from the design and development stage.
Lane Keeping Assist
The optional Lane Keeping Assist is a lane recognition system which detects if the truck unintentionally strays too close to the edge of a lane.
A small camera located behind the windscreen monitors road-markings and relays the information to an on-board computer. If the lateral distance between the vehicle and the lane markings changes, the system emits an audible signal via the stereo speakers, alerting the driver to correct the course of the vehicle before any problems arise.
The reliability of a truck is determined in the development stage. To this end, defined reliability targets are set for each individual part and assembly and for the truck as a whole.
Work at the Development and Testing Centre in Wörth draws on the extensive experience available here, applying the very latest scientific methods and focusing on our customers' expectations. In addition everything we develop is subjected to extreme stress testing. From the functional testing of individual components through to endurance trials on the test stand to driving trials. We test all aspects of our trucks' robustness, durability and reliability.
All engines offer a particularly robust, durable design, a high degree of reliability and an extended service life.
All components of the drivetrain are perfectly matched and produced exclusively at Mercedes-Benz.
Frame, chassis, suspension.
Road and construction-site use impose different requirements on the frame, chassis, suspension and brakes. Accordingly, our trucks are equipped with precisely the components required for the job in hand.
