Chassis

Meeting every challenge in
long-distance transportation.

The Actros is characterised by superb driving dynamics, because the optimum balance between comfort, direct road feel and very good driveability and control has been found: in order to achieve this, many of the components for the drive system, chassis and suspension were redeveloped and significant improvements were made to tried-and-tested elements.

A frame uncompromisingly geared to use in long-distance transport.

The wider track and the more rigid design of the newly developed frame ensure improved road holding and better driving characteristics. Further advantages include the 50 mm matrix of pre-drilled holes throughout, the optimised wheelbase and a larger range of wheelbases, frame overhangs and end cross members.

The right suspension solution for
every application.

When it comes to the suspension, the Actros is available with a robust steel suspension or a combination of steel and air suspension depending on the intended application.

  • For use in off-road operations the steel suspension impresses with its robust, solid construction, high performance and loadability.
  • For predominantly road-based operations the Actros can be equipped with steel suspensions on the front axle and air suspensions on the rear axle. The new 4-bellows air suspension helps to deliver good driving dynamics and high ride comfort.

Create your most suitable vehicle, fitted with the correct body for your operation.

With its modular layout of the chassis concept, the Actros is a bodybuilder friendly truck and ensures an easy installation of tailor made bodies.

Several mounting elements are systematically positioned for specific body structures and clear areas on the frame are already defined at the factory for e.g. a lever for tipping operations inside the cabin or stowage boxes. Thus no subsequent conversion or relocation of assemblies is required. Also, an easy access to the electrical and pneumatic attachments is ensured.
