Road and construction-site use impose different requirements on the frame, chassis, suspension and brakes. Accordingly, our trucks are equipped with components required for a wide variety of jobs.
Specialist commercial vehicle journalists from 24 European countries voted for the Mercedes-Benz Actros to be crowned Truck of the Year for the fifth time.
In place of the conventional rear-view mirror, the new Actros can be fitted with the innovative, aerodynamically sophisticated MirrorCam. This saves fuel and offers improved visibility to the rear and in the area of the A-pillar. The MirrorCam also provides for added safety during manoeuvring, turning and lane changing, for example by panning2 the camera image according to the vehicle’s movements. As an alternative to the new MirrorCam, a classic mirror system is also available.
The camera system comprises two high-resolution fold-up cameras that are mounted on the upper roof frame. The camera images are sent to two 15.2" (38.6 cm) colour screens near the A pillar. To aid the driver in assessing the traffic behind him/her, the respective screen shows tracking and distance indicator lines as soon as he/she switches on the indicator at a speed greater than 30 kilometres per hour. Warnings alerting the driver to excessively tight turning angles add yet more assistance during manoeuvring.
 Optional equipment.
The fifth generation of the system assists the driver9,10 by carrying out full brake application in response to stationary and moving objects in certain conditions, in addition to which it is also able to perform partial or maximum full-stop braking in response to moving or halted pedestrians, thereby reducing the severity of accidents or helping to avoid accidents altogether.
 Optional equipment, only in conjunction with Proximity Control Assist.
 Within the system’s limits.
 Under optimal conditions.
Proximity Control Assist4 maintains the set desired speed similarly to the manner in which conventional cruise control works on free stretches of road. It is effective from a speed of 0 km/h. When the Actros approaches a vehicle ahead, the speed is adapted automatically according to the distance set by the driver. The distance is set on the multi-function steering wheel. Proximity Control Assist’s stop-and-go function slows down the Actros automatically, to a standstill, in stop-and-go traffic.
 Optional extra, only in conjunction with Active Brake Assist 5.
Economical, reliable Euro VI engines in four displacement categories. Future-oriented technology, up to 460 kW (625 hp) and 3000 Nm maximum torque.
With seven cab variants and three engine tunnel variants, the Actros provides the optimum cab variant for almost any requirement when it comes to space, equipment and comfort.
Whether it is wheelbase, engine or cab variants, its versatility provides a vehicle configuration that is optimally prepared for use for almost any requirement and industry.
