The New Actros. Ready to set a new standard
A truck ahead of its time. The new Actros meets the continually growing demands in long-distance and heavy-duty distribution haulage more effectively than ever. With enhanced efficiency. With unique comfort. And with exemplary reliability.
Honed for efficiency on every level
The new Actros is the result of an all-embracing approach which we refer to as RoadEfficiency. As such, it meets all the requirements for even more efficient transport better than ever before.
In the past we promised you low total costs – and we kept our promise. Now we are promising you even more comprehensive efficiency. With the new Actros. In addition to particularly low total costs and high reliability, it boasts in particular assistance systems for enhanced driving safety, a further increase in vehicle usage and, last but not least, high standards of driving comfort, ergonomics and living comfort.
The seven core innovations of new Actros/Arocs
Active Brake Assist 5
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.
