Long distance Actros for Europe

In Stuttgart, Germany, Mercedes-Benz is putting disguised test versions of the new long distance Actros through their final practical trials before the new model is released into the European market in the second half of 2011.

Mercedes-Benz said that the new long-distance trucks are designed to build on the success of the flagship Mercedes-Benz Actros, offering greater profitability, dynamism and comfort. This is partly attributed to new cabs in seven basic versions.

Building on the typical Mercedes-Benz design, the new trucks feature aerodynamic refinements and an innovative lighting concept.

Power is provided by the recently presented Mercedes-Benz engines of the New Engine Generation built in Mannheim. These engines will initially be available in four output classes from 310 kW to 375 kW, with maximum torque from 2100 Nm to 2500 Nm

Technology including the unique X-Pulse injection system, exhaust gas recirculation, exhaust aftertreatment using BlueTec diesel technology and a particulate filter contribute to making these engines the first in Europe to already comply with the Euro VI emission limits.
