Mercedes Benz releases ground-breaking new Actros

More than 260 customers, dealers and media were in Cairns enjoying the spectacular launch of the groundbreaking truck, the next generation Actros. Following an 18 month local evaluation program involving 35 customers, 20 trucks and more than 1 million km, the Actros is setting a new standard for heavy trucks in Australia.

The new Actros introduced a new dimension for driver comfort, and delivers performance and economy with four new engines including a high-performance 11-litre, 13-litre and the range-topping 16-litre.

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

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