Arrive safely – with the support of innovative assistance systems to improve driving safety, which actively help to support the driver and treat the vehicle and the load with care, thereby contributing to efficiency. On every journey.
Trucks that are very safe are not just an important development for all road users. They are also more efficient, because they are less often put out of action by accidents and they help to relieve the driver’s workload. This is why we have been focusing for over 45 years now on developing innovative safety assistance systems.
The Actros lends concepts such as freedom of movement and atmosphere a whole new meaning without losing sight of drivers’ everyday work. To promote drivers’ productivity and assist with counteracting fatigue, we have redefined comfort once again.
The Actros stands for reliable, fuel-saving technology, lower costs and higher profitability. In a nutshell: greater efficiency. Minimised fuel consumption is a crucial contributory factor to economic efficiency. This is a virtue that the Actros has demonstrated in daily use.
During the construction of our trucks, we always use the strictest quality standards: Real-life requirements. Or in short: Your requirements.
For us, this means providing you with trucks that operate without a hitch, even in extreme conditions and in difficult terrain. In other words: “Trucks you can trust”.
As your partner who helps you to master your daily transport tasks efficiently, we will continue to put our all into ensuring you have reliable vehicles at your disposal. With the wealth of experience that comes from more than 110 years in vehicle manufacturing. With trucks boasting robust components that have been tried and tested thousands of times and equipment designed to cope with the topographic and climatic conditions that prevail where the vehicles are to be operated.
Development and testing
The reliability of a truck is determined in the development stage. To this end, defined reliability targets are set for each individual part and assembly and for the truck as a whole.
Work at the Development and Testing Centre in Wörth, Germany draws on the extensive experience available here, applying the very latest scientific methods and focusing on our customers’ expectations. In addition everything we develop is subjected to extreme stress testing. From the functional testing of individual components through to endurance trials on the test track to driving trials, we test all aspects of our trucks’ robustness, durability and reliability.
Extended service life
Anti-corrosion protection for the cabs through the use of galvanised panels, robust frames protected from corrosion by means of cathodic dip priming, a transmission oil cooler for reduced thermal stress, efficient air filters and long maintenance intervals are all factors that contribute to a high level of reliability.
When it comes to maintenance and repair, Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts are designed to help keep you safe. They are developed specifically for the given job and have confirmed their quality in numerous tests and thousands of kilometres of vehicle trials.
