Mercedes-Benz Actros

Ready to set a new standard.

A truck ahead of its time. The new Actros meets the continually growing demands in long-distance and heavy-duty distribution haulage more effectively than ever. With enhanced efficiency. With unique comfort. And with exemplary reliability.


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.

Safety Features


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.

Safety Features

Active Brake Assist 53

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.

Safety Features

Proximity Control Assist4

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.


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.

Reliability Features

Reliable engines

All engines offer a particularly robust, durable design, a high degree of reliability and an extended service life.

Reliability Features


All components of the drivetrain are ideally matched and produced exclusively at Mercedes-Benz.

Reliability Features

Frame, chassis, suspension

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.

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.

Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts

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.
