A spacious sleeper cab
Initially, Volvo launched the VT880, with a very spacious sleeper cab giving enough interior space for the driver and his co-driver, as well as an office option during transport operations spanning several days or weeks. Later, complimentary versions of the VT truck range were presented: the VT800, featuring a daycab for demanding transport tasks where overnight accommodations not needed, and the VT830, with a lower sleeper cab, contributing to good aerodynamics while still preserving good driver´s (and sleeping) environments.
The VT trucks featured (for the first time in a Volvo truck in North America) the powerful 16-litre engine, the same as in Volvo´s premium European truck; the FH16. This power option combines very high performance with the prestige of Volvo´s premium truck engine.
The VT is exclusive intended for highway operation, as a three-axle 6x4 tractor for semitrailers.
