Volvo Dynamic Steering. Total control – effortlessly.
It’s been called the biggest invention since power steering, and it’s easy to see why. When you navigate narrow spaces, the patented Volvo Dynamic Steering adds all the extra steering torque you need, drastically reducing the strain on your muscles. You can literally steer the truck with one finger. At higher speeds, it filters out disturbances from pot holes, road ruts, road markings, banked roads and side winds etc., providing you with perfect course stability and total control – all the time.

Lower weight. Higher payload and lower fuel costs.
While most trucks have put on weight to fulfil Euro 6, this truck has gone in the opposite direction. We’ve optimised many of the standard specifications and made Volvo FH considerably lighter. A normal 4×2 long-haul tractor, for example, can now weigh more than 100 kilos less than its Euro 5 predecessor.
8×2 with steerable pusher and tag axles.
The capacity of an 8×2, yet the driving comfort and fuel economy of a 4×2 – all in one vehicle. We can now factory fit your Volvo FH rigid with both pusher and tag axle. Opt for hydraulically steered axles for an even tighter turning radius.
More options. Less time at the bodybuilder's.
Thanks to the many specification options, Volvo FH is easy to prepare for any application, including swap-bodies. The new Bodybuilder Module, a separate electronic unit, is easy for the bodybuilder to tap into. And Volvo Bodybuilder Instructions (VBI) provide online access to all technical drawings and wiring diagrams needed.
