Volvo Trucks UK launched their latest range of trucks promising a new level of driving experience for truck drivers. The latest range of Volvo trucks includes features such as a new driver’s interface, larger cab interior, plus better performance and efficiency.
In this article, we take a look at the Volvo FH and see what Volvo has done.
The new Volvo FH has had some major changes which should certainly go down well with truck drivers, there are plenty of improvements to the exterior and interior so let’s take a look!
Volvo FH Exterior
The FH truck’s exterior looks amazing!
The Volvo FH now has a low sleeper cab with added roof protection, it also has a more robust roof hatch.
The truck’s cab is also available in the XXL version for extra comfort on long hauls.
The exterior is also fitted with a passenger corner camera which will monitor areas close to the truck for improved all-round visibility.
The visibility has also been improved by a larger window area and a lower door line.
Mounting and dismounting the cab has also had improvements with an ergonomic footstep design.
Volvo also uses dynamic remote steering enabling you to drive the truck from outside the cab.
The front grill on the new Volvo FH can be colour-coded to match the truck’s paintwork straight from the factory which really does enhance the truck’s appearance.
The FH now has an adaptive LED main beam that will self-adjust to oncoming traffic.
The Volvo FH will also take more weight on its axels with air-suspended axles that have a capacity of 10 tonnes.
