Reduced fuel consumption
The new Actros

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 extremely low level of drag and even lower fuel consumption: the new MirrorCam271cuts fuel consumption by up to 1.5%.

Advantages at a glance.

  • Economical, reliable Euro III and V engines in two displacement classes
  • Application coordinated drivetrain configurations with 12-speed automated gearshift and optimised final-drive ratios
  • Fuel-saving drive programs
  • Further optimised, sophisticated aerodynamics
  • Fuel-efficient auxiliary consumers

Engine output range. The economical Euro V engines are available in two displacement classes from 12.9 l to 15.6 l and a total of 3 power output ratings from 330 kW (450 hp) to 460 kW (630 hp).

All Euro V engines boast low fuel consumption. Fuel-saving drive programs, an optimised rear axle ratio and the enhanced Predictive Powertrain Control system1 on the Actros 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 long-distance haulage applications  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.
