The Volvo FM

The Volvo FM has been described as “the art of efficiency”, and rightly so. Apart from the engines being highly fuel-efficient, the in-cab comfort is so pleasurable that the driver can concentrate fully on the task of running the truck – and that entails efficient driving. The super comfortable cab environment and the powerful driveline work together to produce a spectacular driving experience in a truck that can truly do any job you ask. The Volvo FM takes efficiency to a new level and we recommend it for Mining & Construction and Regional Distribution & Haulage.

Volvo FM D13C

Choose your power

The Volvo FM has a choice of two engines; the D11A and the D13A. Both are powerful and feature the latest technology, four valves per cylinder and controlled unit injectors. The D11A has fuel efficiency and driveability in focus, whilst the D13A is a power machine that can carry heavy loads.


Power up with the matching gearbox

With fully sychronised manual gear box, you’ll have to look hard for a gear box that is faster and easier to use. Servo synchromesh and cable linkage mean a vibration-free gear lever and slick gear changes. The wide ratio span gives high starting traction while simultaneously ensuring that there are ample resources for high average speeds.

An enjoyable workplace

An enjoyable workplace

The Volvo FM is not only a pleasure to own, It is also a pleasure to drive. With its design to provide superb comfort and safety, it make you forget about everything but the task of driving.
