TOP FEATURES

The four-wheel drive Volvo FL

Volvo FL 4x4

Need to traverse rough gravel, snow-covered streets - or off-road environments? Not to worry. Extra traction is provided by the permanent four-wheel drive. Meanwhile, the driven front axle and the rear axle are both equipped with hub reduction. The XX-High chassis is also available - designed to minimise the risk of getting stuck or damaging the truck.

Volvo FL with I-Sync

I-Sync

No clutch pedal necessary. The automated six-gear I-Sync transmission makes inner city traffic, with its frequent stops and starts, a walk in the park. It's tailored for inner city distribution and optimised for efficiency and comfort. And it makes the your journey a safe one.

Volvo D5K engine

Five litres or eight?

Four or six cylinders. Five or eight litres. Volvo’s D5K or D8K diesel engines are perfect for the demands of the city. The five-litre engine is available for gross weights from 12 to 18 tonnes. It’s small and lightweight, and yet the strongest in its class. The D5K240 engine is available in a version prepared to run on pure biodiesel (B100). For additional power, opt for the six-cylinder D8K - capable of up to 280 hp.
