Reduced fuel consumption

Reduced fuel consumption

Low on fuel, high on efficiency.

The new Arocs sets new benchmarks, cutting fuel consumption. This is made possible first and foremost by the optimised powertrain incorporating economical engines and transmissions as well as the well-honed aerodynamics.

With even higher fuel savings compared to their already fuel-efficient predecessors, the Arocs with its new 6-cylinder in-line engine offers a particularly economical proposition. 

The efficient 12.8-litre engine OM 460 offers 5 different power output ratings from 265 kW (360 hp) to 350 kW (625 hp). Further factors contributing to fuel savings are the more fuel-efficient auxiliary consumers, Mercedes PowerShift 3 and the sophisticated aerodynamic design.

More power – less fuel. From 265 kW (360 hp) to 350 kW (476 hp) the OM460 engines make their maximum torque available in the lower, fuel-efficient engine speed range.

Precise gear selection and fast gear-changing ensure that the further advanced Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated gearshift transmits the power spontaneously and efficiently to the rear axle. This is possible thanks to an improved shifting strategy that accounts for factors such as gross combination weight, inclination angle of the road and accelerator pedal position when selecting the optimum gear. In addition, short shift times and further friction reduction also support an economical driving style. Further benefits include the option of shifting directly from first gear to reverse, the crawl function and EcoRoll.

In addition to the proven electronic braking systems with disengageable ABS, ASR and hill holder, powerful, wear-free exhaust brakes provide added safety. Depending on application, the new Arocs is equipped with the new high-performance secondary water retarder for even greater safety. This retarder is wear- and maintenance-free and offers increased brake power, higher average speeds on downhill stretches and less weight than the conventional oil retarders.
