The Volvo FE chassis - for easy bodybuilding

Rigid, but flexible

The Volvo FE chassis can be configured for almost any superstructure. Robust and rigid, the square, flat design makes for easy bodybuilding and a solution that satisfies even the most demanding of operations. Plus, improved chassis packaging for Euro 6 means the Volvo FE is unaffected by the stricter emission requirements.

The Electronic Control System of the Volvo FE

Fast, easy loading

The Electronic Control System (ECS) can be used to control the air suspension levelling, via switches on the dashboard or a control box. This means quick, efficient loading at any height.

Choose between mechanical cab suspension or air suspension

State-of-the-art suspension

Get a smooth drive guaranteed. Choose from mechanical cab suspension, with coiled springs and shock absorbers at both front and rear. Or full air cab suspension, which features bellows at both front and rear.

Volvo FE's Electronic Brake System

Electronic Brake System (EBS)

The Volvo FE uses pneumatic brakes with ventilated discs front and rear. Its Electronically controlled Brake System (EBS) provides faster and safer braking response and helps reduce brake wear. The system includes ABS and a Brake Blending system that uses the truck’s various brakes to promote uniform braking and reduce tyre and brake wear. The extended EBS package also includes a Hill Hold feature.
