The Actros powertrain

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. A range of transmission systems and the 12 or 16-speed Mercedes PowerShift automated gearshift work in combination with application-based drive axles to ensure that power is transmitted to the wheels without loss.
