Road Today - - Contents -

Volvo Trucks in North Amer­ica has un­veiled the new Volvo VNR model, a ver­sa­tile re­gional haul trac­tor de­signed and de­vel­oped for the mod­ern pro­fes­sional truck driver and the rapidly evolv­ing de­mands of goods de­liv­ery.

“Our goal with the new VNR was to give our cus­tomers a ver­sa­tile tool to meet their individual needs and challenges in the crit­i­cal re­gional haul mar­ket,” said Göran Ny­berg, pres­i­dent of Volvo Trucks North Amer­ica.

De­fined by in­no­va­tions in every area – new aero­dy­namic de­sign, reimag­ined work­ing en­vi­ron­ment, im­proved en­gine and trans­mis­sion op­tions, gear­ing and load­ing ef­fi­cien­cies, pas­sive and ac­tive safety sys­tems and in­te­grated con­nec­tiv­ity – the new Volvo VNR is ideal for ur­ban ar­eas, pickup and de­liv­ery, liq­uid tankers, dry bulk, flatbed and other re­gional haul ap­pli­ca­tions.

Volvo Trucks has been adopt­ing au­to­mo­tive fea­tures to help make driv­ing freight ve­hi­cles eas­ier and cre­ated a state-of-the-art driv­ing en­vi­ron­ment to help at­tract more drivers to the in­dus­try. New fea­tures in­clude a pro­pri­etary steer­ing wheel that tilts like a car’s—the first and only one in the in­dus­try—more er­gonomic seats, an ad­vanced in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem and a new in­stru­ment clus­ter with many new func­tions in the driver in­for­ma­tion dis­play.

With the new Volvo VNR model, cus­tomers will see an over­all fuel ef­fi­ciency gain of up to 3.5 per­cent compared with the pre­vi­ous re­gional haul model.

The new Volvo VNR made its pub­lic de­but at Ex­pocam in Mon­treal.
