I-Shift to match the power
A powerful truck like the Volvo FH16 requires a transmission to suit. One that is convenient for the driver and fuel efficient on fast long distance runs. The I-Shift automated gearbox provides a previously unattainable level of driveability even at 80 tonne transportations and beyond.

New I-Shift with further developed software
The software has been further developed in the new I-Shift transmission. By complementing I-Shift with a program package for construction operations, for instance, the efficiency rating and comfort levels improve still further. The gearchanging programs are tailored to the specific conditions of each operation. Enhanced I-Roll offers further fuel savings.

Manual gearboxes
Volvo's manual gearboxes are available in a range of variants to suit different uses and engine sizes with 14-speed range and splitter versions, with or without overdrive. As the gearboxes have cable linkage they are convenient to operate and benefit from low levels of noise and vibration.
