Fifty years ago these words were made famous by a Volvo campaign. Yet they have never been more relevant than they are today. The new Volvo FMX is built for the toughest working conditions on earth.
Beneath the robust exterior, a revolutionary new steering system takes the weight off your shoulders, and purpose-designed suspension evens out the terrain. You’ll get the job done quicker, and smoother.
The road ahead is straight. Even when it isn”t.
It’s a patented and groundbreaking invention, making driving more relaxed and safe. We call it Volvo Dynamic Steering. It helps you straighten out the various disturbances that may occur on the track you are driving on. The risk of repetitive strain injuries on your body is therefore dramatically reduced. It’s all about active steering. Just experience it yourself.
A streamlined belly-line. At least the truck has one.
One of the most essential qualifications for a construction truck is high ground clearance. That’s why we created the air suspension GRAS-G2 for up to three rear axles. At the same time we created outstanding stability and driving comfort, whether the truck is laden or unladen. This is a rear suspension that is specifically developed for the gravel pit.
A knee-saving invention.
Driving I-Shift is a real pleasure. Without the clutch pedal, you can safely sit back and concentrate on the other two. I-Shift uses its built-in intelligence to quickly and automatically choose the right gear at all times. Still, if you want, it allows you to step in and shift gear manually. Now, I-Shift is an option also for all vehicles with driven front axle (4×4, 6×6 or 8×6).
Up to 540 hp of pure power. Without jeopardising fuel efficiency.
Volvo’s leadership in diesel-engine technology is clearly visible once you start comparing engine curves. You’ll experience fast acceleration, excellent pulling power, comfortable low-speed handling and, not least, a fuelefficient and pleasurable ride at cruising speed. Our range of Euro 6 engines still offers the same driveability and reliability and the fuel economy is almost on par.
