Why Choose Volvo? | The Volvo Difference

As a brand, Volvo Trucks has an unmatched tradition of pushing the limits, setting new standards and driving innovation in the heavy-duty trucking industry. The main focus is unwavering: meeting the needs of customers. This is achieved by focusing on four principles: fuel efficiency, driver productivity, safety, and uptime.

A Commitment to Fuel Efficiency

Volvo employs a number of innovative technologies that reduce power losses and improve efficiency, optimizing power wherever possible.

Engine performance: Volvo’s full family of engines leverages innovative hardware to maximize performance and efficiency.

Transmission Upgrades: Already the industry’s most advanced automated manual transmission, Volvo has upgraded hardware and software, increased durability and added a countershaft brake for improved performance and smoother, faster shifting.

Volvo’s I-Shift transmission has intelligent cruise control and I-See predictive cruise, which learns the topography of the road for greater fuel savings. I-Shift also has a Severy Duty 12-speed automated manual transmission for rigorous on and off-road work in construction and heavy-haul applications.

XE (eXceptional Efficiency): XE is a customized solution that matches your vehicle and powertrain settings to the needs of your business and then helps optimize efficiency.

Other Fuel Efficiency Powertrain Features: Adaptive Loading, turbo compounding and a common rail fuel system combine to recover lost energy; allow quicker, more accurate fuel injection; and help trucks run at peak fuel efficiency and performance.

Volvo is a Leader in Connectivity

Volvo prides itself on its best-in-class, real-time diagnostic system, available in every truck it builds, with unparalleled connectivity and service experts available 24/7. Remote Diagnostics continuously monitors your engine, I-Shift and aftertreatment, with data transmitted and reviewed through the Uptime network. The network is home to more than 400 specialists ready to jump in and help if needed. Volvo also offers Remote Programming for updates; ASIST, a web-based portal for estimates and other communications; and more.

Unbridled Safety is a Volvo Core Value

Volvo’s Zero Accident Vision means that no Volvo truck should be involved in an accident. To rise to the challenge, Volvo continues to improve road safety, especially when it comes to the interplay between driver, truck, and surrounding traffic.

Active Driver Assist & Other Safety Features

Volvo Active Driver Assist is in constant operation while the vehicle is in motion, providing stationary object detection with stationary vehicle braking, which sends audible and visual warnings if a metallic object is detected in front of the truck.
