- Electronically controlled Brake System (EBS)
- Electronic Stability Program (ESP)
- Z-cam brakes
- Auxiliary brakes, such as Volvo Engine Brake (VEB/VEB+)
Increase average speed with VEB+
With Volvo's patented VEB+ you get high and uniform braking power without any fading. Since VEB+ covers the engine's entire rev range, you can handle most of the truck's braking needs with the engine brake.
VEB+ delivers extremely high braking effect - 425 kW with the D16G. When driving in hilly landscape you have good potential for increasing your average speed without affecting driving safety. In practical terms, what it means is that you can remain in a higher gear on downhill gradients.
