Precisely tuned powertrain configurations, spontaneous power delivery, increased driving stability, improved steering characteristics, and last but not least numerous assistance/safety systems significantly reduce the driver’s workload and provide a more satisfying driving experience.
The new Actros boasts excellent driving dynamics by successfully combining comfort with improved road contact and excellent vehicle handling and control: numerous powertrain, chassis and suspension components have been redesigned and significantly improved. For example, the optimised response of the new high-torque in-line engines and perfectly matched shift strategy for the standard-specification automated transmissions deliver much more spontaneous and comfortable start-off characteristics compared with the predecessor model. The hypoid rear axle has also been optimised further. This ensures that the power generated by the engine is transferred to the road more efficiently than ever before. This also translates into optimum mission orientation, low fuel consumption and thus improved profitability.
A new steering system, a wider, more rigid frame, the new 4-bellows air suspension, and the unrivalled innovative rear axle guide*, which delivers improved self-steering characteristics and greater lateral stability. The standard-specification tried-and-tested electronic braking system and Stability Control Assist ensure a high level of safety. Furthermore, a range of safety and assistance systems are optionally available, including the further advanced Active Brake Assist 3 and Proximity Control with stop-and-go function, to reduce the driver’s workload in stressful situations.
Passive safety is enhanced by optional bi-xenon headlamps, the cornering light function, LED daytime driving lamps and LED tail lights. For the person behind the wheel, this means maximum driving comfort and a safe and secure driving experience. From the starting point to your destination.
