Built to last
The steel and polypropylene bumper. The energy-absorbing box construction. The 3 millimetre skid plate. Each is incredibly strong in its own right. But together, they create our most robust truck front ever.
The high-grade steel bumper is tough. So tough, you could drive into a pile of rubble and barely notice any damage. It also has a thick polypropylene coating protecting the bumper.
The bumper is constructed from three parts, and has easily accessible screws that let you replace any damaged parts yourself – saving you a trip to the workshop and boosting uptime.
The Front Underrun Protection System (FUPS)
The complete lower front is made as a box construction. The individual parts work together to make it incredibly sturdy, and resilient in a head-on collision with a car. The FUPS is designed to protect car passengers by crumpling backwards and absorbing some of the force.
The skid plate
Driving off-road can be hazardous for your engine. That’s why the Volvo FMX has an optional redesigned 3 millimetre skid plate that protects the engine sump, hoses and cooler. Everything that’s perishable when driving off road is protected – even when reversing. And if you work in a dusty environment, it reduces dust vortices under the truck, too.
