Mercedes Actros Reviews

Since the Actros is Mercedes’ flagship truck model, there are always plenty of news stories to cover this important truck that has been on the roads since the early 1990’s. In recent years, Mercedes have been using the Actros to roll out some significant technological advances – from the early launch of Euro 6 back in 2012 to the introduction of the series produced rear view cameras – a first for the truck industry. The Actros was also the basis of the Mercedes ‘Future Truck’ and has been adapted into a series of models, such as the SLT heavy haulage and the Arocs construction version. The Actros brand has even swallowed the lesser Axor (subsequently becoming the Antos then Actros small cab).

If you have read enough information about the Actros in these news and reviews pages, you will find more information and model timeline on the Mercedes Actros for sale pages.

Who wouldn’t want to own one of the first trucks on UK roads that uses cameras to replace rear-view mirrors?

As a small haulier with seven trucks, a canny move is often to buy late, low mileage, used trucks.  With seven trucks – all of which are Mercedes Actros and all bought used – Geoff Woodcock had adopted this used truck buying policy for years, including low-mileage Mercedes-Benz Approved Used units acquired from Roanza Truck…

You would never expect to hear that the type of mirror a truck has fitted could sway a brand loyal truck operator from switching truck brands.
