The Volvo FE is available with two overdrive manual gearboxes, one with 6 gears and the other with 9. The gearboxes are servo-assisted and easy to manoeuvre, with a short gear lever. The lever is vibration-free and has a short throw and a very well-defined shift pattern.

You can smoothly and conveniently operate the automatic 6-speed transmission with push-buttons on the engine tunnel. The AL306 is easy on the truck and saves fuel since the engine always operates within its optimum rev range. And when starting off the hydraulic torque converter provides considerable pulling power.

The automatic transmission can be specified with all engine variants for the Volvo FE.
