Predictive Powertrain Control.
Now available on all new Actros, Antos and Arocs models that are fitted with Mercedes PowerShift 3 and are for operations up to 44t*.
Predictive Powertrain Control is the innovative cruise control system that you can trust to lead you to incredible 5% fuel savings on every journey. Unlike some other systems, it doesn't need to have driven the road beforehand and doesn't forget it afterwards.
Using digital 3D maps and GPS data to scan the road ahead, PPC automatically adapts gear selection and vehicle speed to match and overcome varying conditions on the road. Conditions that can otherwise prove costly.
Exploiting peak momentum ahead of uphill gradients, shifting down on uphill stretches, decelerating ahead of hilltops, and coasting with gentle doses of peak momentum on downhill gradients. All help drive fuel efficiency upwards and deliver savings throughout your truck's lifespan.
*PPC cannot be fitted if the customer has a specialist driving program (Municipal or Fire-service) or the vehicle has been specified with a Turbo Retarder Clutch or the G 280-16/11.7-0.69 transmission.
