Volvo Trucks features for your operation

Explore the solutions made to make your life easier and your operation even better.

Up to 750 horsepowers – easily tamed
With a Volvo, you’ll have the power you need, at your fingertips. Behind the wheel of the Volvo FH16 – it’s up to 750 hp and 3550 Nm of torque. The power is there when you need it, and it makes the Volvo FH16 easy to drive.

I-Shift with crawler gears
Get excellent startability even fully loaded – and secure full control of your power at really low speeds. With the I-Shift with crawler gears, you don’t have to compromise on either fuel economy or startability.

Safely downhill with the Stretch Brake
Truck and trailer fully loaded down a slope. The Stretch Brake engages the wheel brakes on the trailer to straighten out the vehicle combination and avoid the jackknife.

Traction control
The driver interface puts you in detailed control of the load on each axle, the bogie press function and all your differentials. Just turn the traction control clockwise to get a better grip.

Optimise with I-See
I-See uses data about the topography to optimise speed and gear changes on your routes for fuel efficiency.

Heavy-duty bumper
The sturdy front with a heavy-duty bumper and a skid plate protects vital parts and makes your truck fit for tough use.

Volvo Dynamic Steering the way you like it
Are you looking for perfect stability and control at all speeds, combined with less strain on your shoulders? Take a closer look at Volvo Dynamic Steering.

External Steering
Volvo Dynamic Steering offers the pos-si-bility for remote steering control. So that you can drive your truck away from the driver’s seat.

Comfortable cabs
All our cabs keep comfort levels high, noise levels low and offer plenty of space. For you and the things you need.

The manoeuvrability
We’ve made driving long combinations with many axles easier. Tag and pusher axles have generous steering angles. And the Tandem Axle Lift makes turning a tandem drive truck more like a single drive.

The visibility
Generous window areas and well-designed mirrors mean excellent visibility. On top of that, you can add up to eight cameras – with camera views presented in the side display. You’ll be in control.

Front wheel drive when needed
Automatic Traction Control engages the driven front axle when you need it. And disengages it when you don’t.

Room for a crane
Choose one of our low sleeper cabs and make room for a crane on top.

Protect your uptime with a Volvo Gold Contract
The best way to secure your uptime is a Volvo Gold Contract that includes all preventive maintenance and truck repair at a fixed monthly fee. Your truck also communicates remotely with the workshop to make your visits as efficient as possible. Your truck is kept in the best possible shape and you have full control of your costs. If your mileage varies, go for the Flexi-Gold contract that offers the same coverage but at a fee that’s adapted to the beat of your business.
