With characteristics ideal for city centre or suburban driving and new D5 and D8 engines, the latest Volvo FL means schedules can be kept and drivers can go from delivery to delivery quickly and efficiently.
The Volvo FL features new, entirely Volvo designed and built engines. These engines share the same concept and development philosophy as those in our larger trucks. They are characterised by a wider, flatter torque curve with a faster build up of power, even at low revs. In pure driving terms, this delivers a quicker response, higher average speed and better driveability, allowing drivers to negotiate the urban environment more effectively.
The new 4-cylinder 12 tonne Volvo FL offers 500 kg extra load capacity, increasing operating efficiency.
500 kg extra load capacity
In terms of reacting to what our markets told us, we have introduced a 4-cylinder engine on the 12 tonne Volvo FL. It is equipped with the segments strongest engine (D5 with 240 hp), optimised I-Sync transmission and weighs in at 500 kg lighter than a comparable 6-cylinder vehicle. The characteristics of this new model represent a fantastic opportunity for city distribution customers to enjoy a real Volvo in an effective, compact format.
