Volvo’s heavy-duty trucks – the Volvo FH, FM and FMX models – are being upgraded with new technologies and the latest in camera monitoring for even better efficiency, safety and productivity.

The upgrades on the Volvo FH, FM and FMX trucks are the latest in Volvo Trucks’ continuous engineering efforts to optimize its trucks. The Volvo FH Electric – recently chosen as International Truck of the Year 2024 – becomes even more energy-efficient and the upgraded Volvo FH16 will be the most powerful truck in the industry with an all-new efficient 780 hp engine for the toughest assignments. Regardless of which powertrain the customer chooses – electric, gas or diesel – all variants of Volvo's heavy-duty trucks will benefit from a high level of efficiency, safety and driving experience.
 

“The heavy-duty Volvo trucks are icons in the industry and with the latest upgrades I am confident that we will further strengthen our position in this segment,” comments Roger Alm, President Volvo Trucks. “Our skilled engineers have done a tremendous job in fine-tuning our heavy-duty trucks for reduced CO2 emissions, improved safety and even better productivity and customer satisfaction.”
 

Also, the familiar face of the Volvo FH, FM and FMX range is getting a mild refresh with a bold Volvo Iron Mark – the biggest ever on a Volvo Truck in modern times. The upgraded Volvo models will go into production during the first half of 2024 and reach dealerships in mid-2024.
 

Improved safety and fuel efficiency with Volvo’s new Camera Monitor System

An advanced new Camera Monitor System contributes to both better aerodynamics and improved safety. This new solution, which replaces traditional exterior mirrors, gives the driver a wider visual field and thus improves safety for both the driver and surrounding road users.
 

The camera system has a positive impact on the driver’s visibility in rainy and dark conditions, as well as in direct sunlight and when driving in tunnels. When pulling a trailer, the camera system also has an auto-panning function that zooms in on the turning trailer.
 

Other news on the updated Volvo FH, FM and FMX models:

  • Volvo’s I-See technology has been refined to save energy and carbon emissions, using a cloud based topographic map to optimize the driving and enabling more driving time in cruise control mode that can both save energy and give more relaxed driving.
  • Updated brakes with Volvo patented drag-free brake discs, pads and hubs, improving the braking capacity, reducing energy consumption and emissions.
  • Upgraded user-friendly infotainment system that can be personalized depending on individual needs.
  • Improved sound system, available with six premium high-quality speakers, a new power amplifier and a subwoofer adding massive power to the sound experience.
  • A new built-in navigation system will be offered with improved maps adapted to truck-specific needs, with automatic map updates enabling efficient delivery of goods.
  • Interior updates also include an integrated microwave oven and USB-C power outlets.
  • Volvo Trucks’ My Business Apps offering has been introduced to more markets. This is a subscription-based service that enables customers to download business-related apps from different providers, and use them in the trucks’ side display, bringing real benefits to the uptime and everyday use of the truck.
  • The new Tire Monitoring Service gives fleet operators a complete view of the truck and trailer through Volvo Connect, reducing the risk of costs and disturbances related to tire issues.
