Unprecedented handling

Rebuilt structures. Re-engineered steering. And chassis features that break new ground in the truck industry. When we designed the new Volvo FH, we didn’t just improve handling. We transformed it.

Being able to drive with perfect control and less strain makes you more effective. And it makes you safer. So sit back, strap in, and enjoy driving a truck that feels nothing short of sporty.

The real test of a truck’s handling comes when you meet another truck head-on, in a bend, at 80 km/h. In the Volvo FH it’s no problem.

Volvo Dynamic Steering

Steering. Turning. Constantly adjusting. The movements are relatively small, but the repetitive effects have a big impact on the body. Necks, backs and shoulders take the brunt. Or they did. With Volvo Dynamic Steering, you can turn the wheel with one finger – reducing body fatigue by up to 85%.

Improved chassis suspension and shock absorbers give a smooth drive

Everything optimised

When it comes to handling, small changes add up to big gains. We gave the Volvo FH more powerful and better-positioned suspension springs. And re-angled the shock absorbents to divert bumps away from the chassis. All in all, our optimizations improved yaw damping by 100%. And you get a solid, stable and safer drive, on any road.
