With three different sizes available providing up to 600 hp and 2050 lb-ft of torque, you can save fuel by precisely matching engine to application with the confidence that you’ll always have enough power to get the job done.
A comfortable driver is a productive driver. So the VNL series starts with a solid chassis, smooth-riding air suspension and precise, automotive-like handling. The well-insulated cab offers great visibility, adjustable and supportive seats, and a wraparound dashboard designed to keep all controls within reach.
Like riding on air.
Volvo cab air suspensions and outboard mounted air springs, shocks, and stabilizer bar make the VNL series the smoothest ride on the road.
A quiet place to work.
A thick layer of insulation combined with some of the quietest running engines in the industry keep the cab comfortable and quiet.
Comfort comes standard.
With back and lateral support, front and rear cushion adjustment, fore/aft isolation, 7-inch fore-and-aft slide, and power air lumbar support, the VNL standard seats offer drivers an incredibly comfortable ride.
Everything important, all in one place.
With the centrally located instrument cluster with Driver Information Display (DID), a quick look is all it takes. Analog gauges like fuel, speed, and rpm complement the digital DID’s optional Performance Bonus Display.
Easy in and out.
Doors are 3+ feet wide and 4+ feet high, and open a full 70 degrees for ease of access and ergonomically placed grab handles prove the safest and most secure way in and way out of the cab.

Volvo’s commitment to safety protects your business by putting the well-being of drivers—your most valuable asset—first. Advanced safety technology helps our trucks avoid or minimize accidents, keeping drivers safe while reducing cargo loss, downtime, and accident-related insurance costs.
Active Safety Technology
Volvo Enhanced Stability Technology (VEST)
Losing control, jack-knifing, and rolling over are three of the most dangerous incidents a driver can face. Standard in all VNL tractors, Volvo Enhanced Stability Technology, or VEST, continually monitors driver inputs and normal driving parameters. When VEST detects that the truck is dangerously close to an event such as a rollover, the system automatically reduces engine torque and selectively applies the necessary braking to help get the truck back on course.
Volvo Enhanced Cruise (VEC)
Being surrounded by smaller, more nimble vehicles can be stressful. Volvo Enhanced Cruise (VEC) adds peace of mind by helping the driver maintain a safe following distance. The front bumper-mounted radar monitors vehicles driving in front of the truck, and if they get too close, audio and visual warnings alert the driver. If the truck continues to close on the vehicle, VEC can automatically dethrottle the engine and apply the truck’s service brakes to help prevent a collision or lessen its impact
Lane Departure Warning
This safety system uses a windshield-mounted camera to track road markings. If the truck begins to drift, audio and visual alerts warn the driver to get back into the correct lane.
Passive Safety Technology
Intelligent impact protection
Our high-strength steel (HSS) cabs have the industry’s highest strength-to-weight ratio, and are designed to absorb as much of a crash’s energy as possible to protect the driver. To further protect occupants in the event of a crash, the steering column collapses and the engine and transmission drop down and away from the driver.
Airbag and seat belts come standard.
Volvo is the only Class 8 manufacturer to put a driver’s side airbag standard in every truck. What else did you expect from the inventors of the 3-point safety belt?
