The standout chassis

No other truck has a chassis like the Volvo FH. It’s the first in the world with Volvo Dynamic Steering. Making it a precision instrument on the straights. Car-like through the corners. And unmatched when it comes to control.
Volvo Dynamic Steering dramatically reduces the load on the driver’s neck, back and shoulders.
