VNL Optimized Series

VNL Optimized Series

The performance you expect from a Volvo truck. Now in a lighter, optimized package.

The new Optimized Series from Volvo Trucks is a select range of lighter weight, factory-spec’d trucks designed for those who are laser-focused on maximizing fuel efficiency and payload in regional or long haul bulk applications. Using real-world data and demands from our customers, every Optimized Series VNL is equipped to meet your needs in a variety of applications, while offering superb comfort, driveability, plus weight savings of up to 1200 pounds. That can mean significant bottom-line value to regional and bulk haulers – whether you’re delivering more payload going out or more fuel efficiency coming home.

You also have a variety of daycab or sleeper configurations to choose from in the Optimized Series, so you can operate at optimum efficiency no matter what business you’re in. From our award-winning and fuel-saving I-Shift transmission, to aluminum components and low-rolling-resistance Michelin X-One® wide-base tires, Volvo Trucks delivers you a truck that is lighter on everything but performance.

VNL 300 6x2

The Optimized Series VNL 300 daycab offers outstanding visibility and driving comfort, making it ideal for shorter runs or multiple stops.

VNL 430 6X2 MID-ROOF

The Optimized Series VNL 430 Midroof offers an efficient sleeper with a taller interior for even greater driver comfort. And because the truck has been optimized from top to bottom, you’re not sacrificing a lot of weight to gain so much room.

VNL 430 6x2

The Optimized Series VNL 430 offers the maneuverability and comfort of the VNL 300, but adds a 41” sleeper with an efficient, full-size bunk, giving you a perfect place to rest and recharge on the occasional overnight haul.

VNL 630 6x2 MID-ROOF

The Optimized Series VNL 630 Midroof combines the style and efficiency of the VNL line with a 61” sleeper, full-size bed, and extra storage, giving you more comforts of home when those longer hauls mean extra nights on the road.
