Volvo FM 440- Designed for the road
Regional haulage demands a specialist. And that is exactly what Volvo FM is. It features the famous powerful driveline – with the efficient engines and I-Shift, the world's most intelligent gearbox – which will help you save money mile after mile. But Volvo FM is not only a pleasure to own, it is also a pleasure to drive. Not least thanks to the excellent in-cab comfort. And the exterior has received a face-lift with an all-new grille and powerful headlights.
The Volvo ECS (Electronically Controlled Suspension) gives you high comfort and protects your cargo. The system automatically adjusts itself so that the truck remains at a constant height and compensates for unevenly distributed loads. The manual height control makes it easier to adjust the load platform's height to match that of the cargo bay. The system can even be programmed with a number of alternative loading bay heights.
The Volvo FM has a choice of two engines; the D11C and the D13C. All are powerful and feature the latest technology, four valves per cylinder and controlled unit injectors.
The most common accident scenarios include a full frontal collision or a roll-over accident. When the cab is struck by an exterior object, its primary task is to transfer energy backwards in order to maintain sufficient survival space inside.
