A Fantastic Truck Turns 25. Let’s Celebrate!

The Volvo FH has been leading the world of trucking since 1993. To us, the best way to celebrate is by giving you all a gift, which is a promise to keep driving progress with this world-class truck and make it even better.

A Great Track Record. A Glorious Future

We can honestly say that our innovations have changed trucking as we know it – and there’s much more to come. Drivers will get even more comfortable, safe and ergonomic workplaces. We will improve the already outstanding uptime, spearhead safety thinking and lead the race towards zero emissions. In our minds, the Volvo FH has been the truck of the future since day one, that’s the only thing we’re not prepared to change.
