With its proven robustness and outstanding versatility, The Mercedes-Benz Actros rises to the individual challenges of every task and is perfectly made for the Middle East.

The Mercedes-Benz Actros enjoys a reputation of supreme power, reliability and safety since many years – in the Middle East and all over the world. Providing an unrivalled level of quality, the Actros is the truck to trust. More than 80,000 Actros sold in the region impressively prove that customers rely on the Actros – even after hundreds of thousands of kilometres in operation under the harshest and most challenging conditions.

The striking design

The Actros ‘Made for ME’ boasts an impressive look with a full-paint finish and the illuminated star in the front grill. These distinct features along with the outstanding capabilities and various configuration options of the Actros truly make it the truck made for ME.

Enhanced efficiency

Mercedes PowerShift, the automated gearshift system for the Actros offers numerous advantages to the driver as well as the superb economic efficiency of operation. It is available in 12 or 16-speed versions. The automatic transmission not only shifts gears quicker, it also enables higher engine torques to be transferred compared with conventional transmission units. The selectable programmes, application-specific additional functions, like the Eco-Roll, Power mode, Maneuvering mode, Rocking-free mode and smoother gear changes contribute to better ride comfort, improved safety and greater economy.

Economical and powerful

The outstandingly reliable, robust and efficient Mercedes-Benz V6 engines offer plenty of power and torque and are compliant with the Euro III emission standard. They are available in various versions with maximum power up to 435 hp and represent the basis for the superbly efficient powertrain with Mercedes PowerShift. The high-performance cooling and air-filtering systems ensure the long service life and low total costs of ownership (TCO). As a result, the Actros is extremely economical, fuel-efficient and powerful.

Spacious cabs

Regional and long-distance transportation tasks often require the driver to sleep inside the truck cab for several days. The Actros L-cab meets the resulting demand for a comfortable, spacious and driver-oriented interior with a full-size bed, great freedom of movement with a headroom of up to 1.92 m and numerous storage facilities: Freight documents and paperwork can be stored in a drawer, while cups, cans and bottles find their place in secure receptacles. Larger items fit into the three open stowage compartments above the windshield which can also be fitted with flaps. The manually adjustable air-conditioning and comfort cab-mountings coming as standard equipment make the Actros the perfect solution for every demand in the long-distance transportation.

Wide local network
