Actros 2016

Mercedes Benz Actros 2016

It has arrived! After 5 hugely successful years in Europe, and many months customizing for the Australian market, the all new Mercedes Benz Actros is here.

What’s new?

  • Significant fuel savings from new high-performance 11-litre, 13-litre and 16-litre engines
  • New cabin delivers comfort, refinement and spacious bed
  • 20 trucks, 35 customers and 1 million plus km of local evaluation
  • 500,000km/5 year’s free scheduled servicing offer

The new Actros features a new range of in-line six-cylinder engines that deliver fuel economy savings of up to 7 per cent* and an AdBlue consumption reduction of up to 40 per cent. In addition, the latest generation of automated transmissions change gears 20 per cent faster and incorporate a clever new crawler function for low speed work.

The next generation Actros also delivers when it comes to safety with a strong new cab, a range of standard safety systems and advanced optional electronic assistance programs including Proximity Control Assist adaptive cruise control with stop/start function and Active Brake Assist.

Mercedes-Benz has introduced key local upgrades for the new Actros, including long range fuel tanks, a 6.1-inch touch screen truck sat-nav unit and sound system, and locally-sourced inner-spring mattresses for increased comfort.

The next generation Actros was the subject of an unprecedented development program with more than 50 million test km driven. The grueling drive programs included six summer test cycles in Southern Italy and Spain (with temperatures of up to 50 degrees) and six winter test cycles in Sweden and Finland (with temperatures dropping to minus 40 degrees).

First launched five years ago in Europe, the Actros won the 2012 International Truck of the Year and a string of other awards for quality, economy and environmental credentials. The new model had to undergo a lengthy 18-month evaluation program before Mercedes-Benz Truck and Bus Australia fine-tuned it, ready for the demanding Australian on-road market.
