Trucks you can trust to deliver efficiency, reliability and comfort in every dimension.
The Mercedes-Benz Prime Mover range impresses not only with a comfortable driver workplace, but also with precisely coordinated, job-matched vehicle configurations, fuel saving, efficient technology and attractive service offers which can increase the overall cost effectiveness even further.
Operators who earn their money in road-bound goods transport need reliability. In other words: trucks they can count on. With the Actros we are able to offer you a vehicle 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, gearshifts, 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.
Mercedes-Benz trucks stand for particularly high economic efficiency worldwide. The Actros also meets the highest standards of efficiency, 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 economic efficiency. To this end, numerous innovative technical measures were implemented in the course of developing the Actros. These result in engines with higher performance and lower fuel consumption, a powertrain which enables a particularly economical driving style, and an aerodynamic design honed down to the finest details in the interest of fuel efficiency.
Anyone who spends a lot of time on the road needs space of their own. And space for the essentials needed on long journeys. This is why the cabs of the Actros offer particularly spacious interiors – with vast amounts of stowage space and plenty of freedom of movement. In short, working, living and sleeping comfort which is geared to the work of long-distance drivers and meets their high expectations, too.
Our extensive range of Mercedes-Benz Prime Movers are designed with your business needs in mind, to provide you with efficiency in your day-to-day operations, reliability on the road, and a comfortable work place for the driver.

With fuel savings of up to 7%* compared to its already fuel-efficient predecessor, the Actros with its new 6-cylinder in-line engines is a particularly economical proposition. The engines are available in the four displacement classes 7.7 l, 10.7 l, 12.8 l and 15.6 l and in a total of 8 power output ratings from 260 kW (354 hp) to 460 kW (625 hp).
The combination of low fuel consumption and improved performance is attributable to the particularly efficient combustion strategy, the X-Pulse common-rail high-pressure injection system with an injection pressure of up to 2700 bar and the patented asymmetric turbocharger. Further factors contributing to fuel savings are the more fuel-efficient auxiliary consumers, Mercedes PowerShift 3, and the sophisticated aerodynamic design.
*The declared fuel consumption figures are determined by testing under standardised laboratory conditions. Real world fuel consumption is influenced by many additional factors such as individual driving style, load, and traffic and vehicle condition.
Solutions geared to practical needs provided the terms of reference in developing the new workplace, resulting in a whole array of components which are finely matched on both an ergonomic and functional level. These include the new cockpit, the new seats, the new multifunction steering wheel, and the touch screen stereo with truck map navigation, Bluetooth and DVD player.
Everything can be operated intuitively and is precisely tailored to the driver’s work procedures. The attractive colour concept, the high-quality, perfectly applied and easy-to-clean materials and the newly developed beds are further assets providing that extra touch of work motivation.
Mercedes-Benz employs many safety and assistance systems to reduce risks and ease the burden on the driver*. In addition to the electronic braking system with disengageable ABS, ASR, Brake Assist, Hill Holder and Active Brake Assist 4^ which can detect the risk of collision with both stationary and moving obstacles, and crossing pedestrians below 50 kph; the high standard of safety is also supported by Stability Control Assist, Proximity Control Assist~ with stop/go functionality, Lane Keeping Assist, and Attention Assist. Standard systems such as the rain/light sensor, the co-driver mirror with a manoeuvring function and optional systems such as the bi-xenon headlamps^ and the tyre pressure monitoring system help the driver to avoid accidents.
* The driver is responsible for the safe conduction of the vehicle.
~Optional extra in conjunction with Active Brake Assist.
18 cab variants in widths of 2300 mm or 2500 mm, a level floor or an engine tunnel height of 170 or 320 mm, headroom of up to 2130 mm and six roof shapes – the prime movers always able to offer a suitable cab, whatever the needs of the job in hand, day or night.
Additionally Mercedes-Benz Trucks provides as standard an inner spring mattress*.
The design of the Actros has been optimised right down to the finest details in order to reduce wind resistance. Features such as the door extensions*, aerodynamic attachments^ and the tyre pressure monitoring^ also save fuel. In addition, the StreamSpace cab has been developed specifically for low fuel consumption.
* Standard for cabs with level floor and 170 mm engine tunnel, not available for 320 mm engine tunnel.
The frame with the consistent 50 mm hole pattern provides the basis for the prime movers high body-mounting capability. Other assets include a wide range of wheelbases, frame overhangs and end crossmembers selectable ex factory and a broad selection of tank variants. Good body-mounting capability is additionally supported by the parameterizable special module^ and pre-installations and consoles which are available ex factory.
A wide choice of rear axle ratios matched to various operating profiles also plays a role in keeping fuel consumption low. Economical auxiliary consumers, such as the on-demand air compressor contribute to low fuel consumption.
