Volvo FH series
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 enjoyable that the driver can concentrate fully on the task of running the truck – and that entails efficient driving. The super comfortable cab environment, the driveline and the I-shift gearbox all 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 regional distribution and long haul.
The Volvo FM has a choice of two engines; the D11C and the D13C. Both are powerful and feature the latest technology, four valves per cylinder and controlled unit injectors. The D11C has fuel efficiency and driveability in focus, whilst the D13C is a power machine that can carry heavy loads.
With the Volvo FM you can choose between a manual gearbox, the automatic Powertronic transmission or the I-Shift. The latter one will change the way you drive. Thanks to intelligent software, the I-shift always applies the right gear in every situation, leading to enhanced driveability as well as less fuel consumption.
The Volvo FM is not only a pleasure to own. It is also a pleasure to drive. Not least thanks to the excellent in-cab comfort. There is a variety of cabs on offer – up to a Globetrotter LXL cab if you go with the Volvo FM 11 – and they are all designed to provide superb comfort and make you forget about everything but the task of driving.
