Fuel Challenger

The Fuel Challenger programme demonstrates the very best of Actros. Come and take the challenge.

At Mercedes-Benz Trucks, we've put years of development and testing into the design and technology behind our latest truck range. From providing unparalleled efficiency to industry leading safety and connectivity technologies, we are committed to ensuring that our products are at the forefront of innovation.

The Fuel Challenger programme demonstrates the very best of Actros - high levels of comfort for the driver, assured handling, safety, and above all, the highest levels of efficiency in operation - all leading towards the lowest possible Total Cost of Ownership for your business; and the best part? To allow us to showcase the very best of owning a Mercedes-Benz truck, the Fuel Challenger vehicle is provided to you completely free of charge.

Fuel Challenger gives you the opportunity to run a new Actros tractor unit for a two week period. During this time, our TRUCKTrainers and Handover Specialists will utilise the detailed telematics afforded by FleetBoard, working with drivers to ensure efficiency and performance is maximised.

During this period, we will compare the performance of this vehicle against one of your current fleet, working on the same routes and loads as the Fuel Challenger vehicle. At the end of the challenge, we will analyse the results with you.

One of the features is the Predictive Powertrain Control, an innovative system which takes into account the road ahead when changing gear, allowing for any inclines, and in so doing can reduce consumption by as much as a further 5 percent. Alongside the innovative technology on board the new Actros, services tailored to your needs also help to keep overall costs particularly low.

Efficiency on the road isn't just about vehicle performance, it is also about driver performance.

That's why we've not only designed our trucks to perform - our training programmes enable your drivers to perform too.
