I-Shift with ultra low crawler gears

Up to 610 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 610 hp and 2800 Nm of torque.

38 tonne bogie 
A durable solution that boosts your load capacity. Our heavy-duty bogie, can take a bogie load up to 38 tonnes with ease.

Axle load and traction control 
The driver interface puts you in detailed control of the load on each axle and all your differentials. Just turn the control clockwise to increase your traction.

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. 

The robust front 
Designed for the world’s toughest terrain, the robust front with the heavy-duty bumper and skid plate protects vital parts like the headlamps and engine components. Bumping into rocks and gravel won’t stop you. 

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.

Towing bar
Push or pull extreme loads, using the towing bar integrated in the front. Perfect when connecting two trucks or more in the same combination.

Braking capacity for every need
Our auxiliary brakes put you in control in all situations. The retarder offers stable capacity at high speeds. And combined with I-Shift with crawler gears, the Volvo Engine Brake covers your needs even at really low speeds.
