I-Shift. Finally it’s here.
The experience of driving I-Shift is often described as effortless. Without the clutch pedal, you can safely sit back and concentrate on the other two. I-Shift uses its built-in intelligence to quickly and automatically choose the right gear for you at all times. And the software provides shifting skills that are impossible for even the best of drivers to match.
Still, if you want to get more involved, you can. The buttons on the shift selector allows you to step in and shift gear manually.

For us at Volvo Trucks, Euro 6 is just one step along the way. By reducing fuel consumption we reduce total emissions even more – and you will benefit from the cost reduction.
Service intervals and maintenance requirements stay the same.
Volvo FE owners do not have to worry about intervals of service or added maintenance requirements on their vehicles, despite the increased demands on engines and service personnel as a result of Euro 6. There are no changes to these requirements.
Flexibility is our mantra.
The Volvo FE offers both manual and auto transmission, allowing you to choose which settings suit your driving conditions.
Manual shift transmission comes with the option of six or nine speeds, suited respectively to city driving and high performance driving with applications.
Automatic transmission is highly practical when assignments involve frequent starts and stops and is a particularly good match for the Volvo FE with its D8K engine.
