    Brand New Mercedes model - Actros

    Ok, so not exactly what you were expecting. Still, pretty badass truck Mercedes just launched:

    Customers can begin ordering the new long-distance haulage truck from Mercedes-Benz on July 1, 2011; the production launch is scheduled for the end of September. The new truck program consists of semitrailer tractors and flatbed trucks in four output classes ranging from 310 kW (421 hp) to 375 kW (510 hp) and from 2,100 to 2,500 Nm of torque. The new drive system comes with either Euro VI technology or else with Euro V. There are seven cab variants with widths ranging from 2.3 to 2.5 meters; five of these come with level floors the whole way through. Up to 11 different wheelbases are available - for example, with the two-axle chassis-cab. This is but a small selection of the great number of variants that will be offered so that the truck can be easily tailored to the customerís specific needs.

    It would work for you but not for me. our trucks mileage is almost 2.5 million KM, we have 5 trucks so it means 12.5 million KM combined, in that mileage 0.1 more MPG or 1 cent less running cost is a huge profit for the company.

    Man I'm saying it honestly, if there is one site that deserves to be big it's this.
