I-Shift

A shift for safety

Driving in heavy traffic on unfamiliar roads can be stressful. Sitting comfortably with a clear view and easy access to the instruments enables you to concentrate on the surrounding traffic. That is why Volvo developed I-Shift: the most intelligent gearchanging system invented for distribution, construction and long-haul operations.

I-Shift is designed to improve your truck's driveability through an electronically managed engine and an automatic transmission. The transmission changes smoothly and gently, adapting gearchanges to suit current driving conditions, with the engine and gearbox electronics controlling the changes.


 

You can select gears sequentially, just as in a passenger car with an automatic gearbox, and you can easily switch to manual gearchange mode with the lever.

The result is greater comfort and safety, and less stress on you as a driver.
