What is Predictive Powertrain Control?

Predictive Powertrain Control Retrofit is now available on all new Actros, Antos and Arocs models that are fitted with Mercedes-Benz 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 an incredible 5% fuel savings on every journey. Unlike some other systems, it doesnt 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 efficieny upwards and deliver savings throughout your truck's lifespan.

What are the benefits?

PPC uses engine braking at all available opportunities, reducing brake wear. Fewer gear changes means less interruptions in speed. This in turn leads to less wear and tear and fuel consumption. As well as fuel consumption and CO2 level reductions, stress levels of drivers can also drop as they can focus all of their attention to the road.
