In January 2021, Mercedes-Benz Trucks will launch two new Actros models, F and Edition 2. The latter is referred to as a premium vehicle thanks to its range of features, including stainless steel access steps and all-around, almond beige curtain.
Actros F will be available in 24 nation states in the European Union and some other countries. This is a model with a steering wheel on the left-hand side only, classified in the world of tractor units of 18 tonnes and up. As the manufacturer says, the vehicle is primarily intended for long-distance transport.
The emphasis here was placed on high comfort for the drivers, so Mercedes-Benz Trucks are offering a 2.5-metre wide cab with a 120-millimetre high engine tunnel, thanks to which the driver gets more space. In addition, Actros F drivers will also have access to a navigation system, automatic air conditioning and Active Brake Assist, among other things.
Carriers, on the other hand, may be interested in its connectivity solutions. The vehicle offers data generation, an intelligent network connection between the driver and fleet, as well as features that further enhance the economic efficiency of the fleet.
Stylish Actros interior with a “wow” effect
Another model, the Actros Edition 2, will only be available in a limited 400 truck series. According to the manufacturer, the ‘stylish interior’ boasts a dashboard and door handles covered in nappa leather, a roof hatch with ambient lighting, an all-around almond beige curtain and stainless steel entrance steps.
Besides these decorative elements, Mercedes-Benz Trucks also highlights, among other things, the presence of active safety assistance systems and a rain sensor. On top of that, the truck sports an emergency braking assistant named Active Brake Assist (now into its fifth-generation), automatic remote diagnostics that will monitor the status of the truck’s systems in real-time, and a Sideguard Assist with pedestrian and cyclist detection.
