Chassis packaging

The Volvo FH16 can be made to suit the most varying transport tasks. The chassis is available in different heights, types of suspension system, braking system and peripheral equipment.

There are three different chassis heights for tractors and rigids:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High

The low chassis is intended for bulk transport on good roads with all-round air suspension. A medium height suits trucks with low front axles in combination with either front leaf or front air suspension. High is intended for trucks working with heavy construction and for trucks with leaf suspension.
