Reduced fuel consumption
The new Actros

Reduced fuel consumption

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

The lower the fuel consumption, the lower the 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 extremely low level of drag and even lower fuel consumption: the new MirrorCam271 cuts fuel consumption by up to 1.5% as standard, for example.

Advantages at a glance.

  • Economical, reliable Euro VI engines in four displacement classes
  • Finely coordinated drivetrain configurations with 12-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 175 kW (238 hp) to 460 kW (625 hp).

All Euro VI engines boast low fuel consumption. Fuel-saving drive programs, an optimised rear axle ratio252 and the enhanced Predictive Powertrain Control system which features as standard on the Actros with L-cab and MirrorCam also contribute to the low fuel consumption. Intelligent ancillary consumers and finely honed aerodynamics also play a role. This all adds up to increased fuel savings on motorways and country 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 drive program.
