Geared towards performance, efficiency and reliability.
Superior dynamic response, simple handling and low fuel consumption: the automated transmission ensures precise gear selection, short shift times, high driving comfort and optimal economy. Mercedes PowerShift 3 is the tried and tested, high-performance automated gearshift system for your Actros. Shift times are up to 20 percent shorter than with Mercedes PowerShift 2 and up to 50 percent shorter than with Telligent® automated gearshift.
Precise gear selection.
Mercedes PowerShift 3 applies sensitive sensor technology for gear shifting to ensure the right gear selection in accordance with the given driving and load situation. Overrun mode on a downhill gradient is identified and the gear is held. The crawl function with integral manoeuvring mode makes moving off easy and manoeuvring precise and responsive.
Mercedes PowerShift 3 provides additional functions such as direct shifting from 1 to R and reverse gears with high ratios for simple manoeuvring.
Turbo retarder clutch
Turbo retarder clutch: unique additional drive and braking system.
The wear-free turbo retarder clutch combines the functions of a hydrodynamic start-up clutch and a primary retarder in a single component.
The engine-speed retarder supplies up to 720 kW of brake power directly from low speeds. Designed for extreme loads, it is precisely matched to Mercedes PowerShift 3 and the electronic engine management system.

Electronic brake system
Improve safety and reduce wear.
The Electronic Brake System, includes Anti-lock braking (ABS) and Anti-slip regulation (ASR) as a standard for all Actros models.
The system controls the brake system electronically and brakes each wheel individually. It also integrates secondary braking to improve safety and reduce wear.
Driver and Vehicle Management System.
Several factors are paying in on reduced Total Cost of Ownership: from Telematics to Mercedes-Benz ServiceSolutions.
Telematics help you manage your fleet with ease - and achieve greater efficiency. Systems such as the proven Performance Analysis track key performance indicators over the long term - for instance, helping drivers achieve and maintain a preventative driving style, which reduces wear and consumption. Optimized maintenance intervals and fewer workshops visits also increase the economic viability of your vehicles. Significant fuel savings are within reach, personnel and administrative costs are closely monitored, and the whole package is easily integrated into your company's network.
