The global debut of the Mercedes-Benz Actros truck range took place at the 1996 Hanover commercial vehicle expo, serving as the successor to the SK range and reaching South Africa two years later.
In honour of the Actros’s 25th anniversary in the local market, Mercedes-Benz Trucks SA has introduced the Limited Edition 25 Actros. These exclusive units are available across three model variants: the Actros 2652LS/33 RE, Actros 2654LS/33 RE, and the Actros 2663LS/33 Euro 5.
Distinguishing the 25th Limited Edition trucks from their regular counterparts is the incorporation of features previously exclusive to the flagship Mercedes-Benz Actros 2663LS/33. Visually, these special edition trucks showcase a unique silver-grey paint and a backlit Mercedes illuminating star.
Internally, these models boast an interior chrome package, a comfortable passenger’s suspension seat with armrests and a seat occupancy detection sensor, a 12.3-inch interactive multimedia cockpit with a multitouch display, and a premium comfort mattress.
Maretha Gerber, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Daimler Truck SA, expressed, “The Mercedes-Benz Actros has been our flagship truck for the past 25 years, and concluding its silver jubilee with the launch of the 25th Limited Edition trucks is truly special for us. I hope that our customers will not only enjoy the look of these trucks but also find its unique features beneficial when it comes to driver and passenger comfort and safety.
