„Truck of the Year“.
Europe’s specialist journalists give full marks.
The Actros’s strong points: its exceptional comfort, economy & driving dynamics.
The new Actros is the best truck of the year 2012. This is the conclusion industry experts from specialist magazines from 24 countries reached, voting the new Mercedes-Benz truck flagship “Truck of the Year 2012”. In the competition the question at issue was: which vehicle prevails over the rest thanks to the sum total of its characteristics? The deciding factors for the jury were the new Actros’s exceptional performance in the areas of comfort, economy and driving dynamics.
The decision was taken at the international specialist trade fair “Trailer 2011” in Kortrijk, Belgium. The title is officially awarded by the Association of Commercial Vehicle Editors (ACE). The prize received by the new Actros represented the eighth award for Mercedes-Benz since 1977, when the contest had its beginnings.
The most economical
truck of all time.
Just what BlueEFFICIENCY Power is capable of offering was shown particularly impressively by the 2011 Record Run: on the 7-day, 10,000-kilometre run back and forth between Rotterdam and Szczecin (Stettin) the new Actros set records. The new Actros 1845 Euro V. achieved a (DEKRA-certified) reduction of 7.6 percent compared with the tried-and-tested Actros, while the new Actros 1845 Euro VI attained notable savings of 4.5 percent. BlueEFFICIENCY Power stands for fuel-consumption- and CO2-reducing technologies such as BlueTEC, for consumption-optimising measures on the new Actros and for services that contribute towards lowering diesel fuel consumption even further.
Welcome to a new dimension.
Apart from the sensationally low consumption levels, the new Actros scores points from the very first day with its significantly reduced overall costs. This economy is further supported by the standard FleetBoard hardware including a four-month trial free of charge as well as precise, coordinated services.
The vehicle offers the driver a maximum of comfort for work, living and sleeping. The package is rounded off by the Actros’s impressive driving dynamics, since no other vehicle moves so easily, so secure and with such matchless confidence. This, too, convinced the “Truck of the Year” jury.
Welcome to the living room.
The GigaSpace cab is designed for work in international long-distance transport. With a standing height of 2.13 metres between the seats it provides an impressive feeling of spaciousness. In addition there is ample space for everything that has to be taken along on the journey.
The newly-developed SoloStar concept sets new standards in international long-distance haulage. A central element of the generously-dimensioned living area is the extremely comfortable seat against the cab rear wall. It invites one to sit down, relax and stretch one’s legs for a while.
