fo­cused ver­sion of the FM called the FMX. It has been mod­i­fied to bet­ter cope with the rough and tum­ble of off-road work, in­clud­ing re­designed bumpers, head­lights and a raised ride height.

Volvo has in­stalled a tow hook in the front bumper that is rated to pull a hefty 32 tonnes.

The front bumper is a three‒piece de­sign, so you can re­move and re­place one piece should it cop dam­age, and it is made from thick steel.

There is a 3mm skid plate to pro­tect the sump and other com­po­nents, which also re­duces the amount of dust that makes it up into the en­gine bay.

Volvo says the bumper is ex­tremely ro­bust, but it has also been de­signed to limit dam­age to cars in the case of a crash.

The head­lights have steel grilles de­signed to pre­vent dam­age to the lenses.
