Reduced fuel consumption

Reduced fuel consumption

The lower the fuel consumption, the lower the overall costs.

The lower your fuel consumption, the lower your overall costs. With this in mind, we have given our all to reduce fuel consumption as standard on the new Actros.

We have further improved the aerodynamics of the Actros to achieve an overall lower level1 of drag and even lower fuel consumption1: the new MirrorCam2 system, for example, cuts fuel consumption further still1, thanks to the aerodynamic shift in the removal of the traditional side mirrors.

Advantages at a glance.

  • Economical, reliable Euro VI engines in four displacement classes
  • Finely coordinated drivetrain configurations with 16-speed automated gearshift and optimised final-drive ratio
  • Fuel-saving drive programs
  • Further optimised, sophisticated aerodynamics
  • Fuel-efficient auxiliary consumers

Engine output range. The economical Euro VI engines are available in four displacement classes from 7.7 l to 15.6 l and a total of 18 power output ratings from 260 kW (354 hp) to 460 kW (625 hp).

The Euro VI engines boast minimised fuel consumption. Fuel-saving drive programs, an optimised rear axle ratio1 and the new Predictive Powertrain Control2 system also contribute to the minimised fuel consumption. Intelligent auxiliary consumers and finely honed aerodynamics also play a role. This all adds up to increased fuel savings on highways and roads in comparison to the previous model.

The Actros is equipped with the "Economy/Power" drive program as standard. The "Economy" drive program is intended for use in long-distance haulage and contributes to even greater efficiency. The maximum power can be called up at any time, for example on uphill gradients, via the "Power" drive program. The "Economy+" drive program, which has been specially configured with regard to maximum speed and shifting characteristics, is optionally available instead of the "Power" program.

Low friction losses, minimising fuel consumption, as well as quiet running which increases driving comfort, are the key characteristics of this axle.
