Effective power transmission

We want the Actros to meet your performance expectations. That's why we've equipped it with virtually everything you need to make heavy-duty operations easier: From powerful V6 and V8 engines to application-based transmissions, gearshift systems and axles – as well as a host of technical details. The Actros boasts nine durable, high-performance BlueTEC® 5 V6 and V8 engines. The 12 or 16-speed Mercedes PowerShift 2 automatic transmission works in combination with application-based drive axles to ensure that power is transmitted to the wheels with virtually no loss.
