In the world of trucks, too, there are premium vehicles. And the current Actros L from Mercedes-Benz is such a premium truck. It is practically the S-Class of freight transport. With the Actros L Driver Extent+ special model, the manufacturer is now upgrading this vehicle even further, creating a trucker’s dream that is limited to 150 units.
The name says it all: That’s why the Mercedes’ front-end flap is adorned with Actros logotype in dark chrome. In addition, a Driver Extent+ badge identifies the truck. The truck is presented with exclusive matt gray decals. This sets color accents under the side windows and on the sun visor, side panels and front.
The cab color, on the other hand, can be freely selected. The black, closed cover gives the front of the vehicle more expressiveness and lets the illuminated Mercedes-Benz star shine even brighter. For more attention at rest stops around the world.
Four round roof headlights have everything in view and are intended to improve visibility for the driver in all weather conditions. The lights work with LED technology and are installed in the sun visor. The front and rear axles are fitted with wheel bolt covers, rear axle caps and wheel nut protection caps. These are available in black lacquer or in shiny stainless steel. The closed frame covers made of aluminum also offer two additional step plates and complement the standard steps.
But the Driver Extent+ special model not only shines from the outside: The ambient lighting with a total of 138 LEDs provides indirect light in the driver’s cab and can be individually adjusted in color and strength. Depending on the mood during breaks from driving or on the track.
Another special feature is a coffee maker with pad usage. Coffee machines simply cannot be missing in a truck. And instead of a boring filter machine, the special model also relies on Mercedes design. Due to its handy size, the machine can also be stored in the cup holder.
In addition, the CabLock burglary protection provides increased protection for drivers. The system can be locked and opened independently of the central locking system. So if the coffee doesn’t work, you can at least sleep peacefully and safely.
The manufacturer does not reveal which model variants of the Actros L are offered as the special model (Stream-Space, Big-Space and Giga-Space). And it is also not known which drives can be selected. Diesel. That much is clear. But the range of 6-cylinder engines extends from a 7.7-liter unit with 175 kW (238 hp) to a 15.6-liter engine with 460 kW (625 hp) and 3,000 Nm of torque at just 1,100 rpm /min
