Volvo » VNR

Volvo Trucks North America unveiled the new Volvo VNR model in 2017, a versatile regional haul tractor designed and developed for the modern professional truck driver and the rapidly evolving demands of goods delivery. The new model features refinements and innovations in aerodynamic design, working environment, engine and transmission options, gearing and loading efficiencies, passive and active safety systems, and integrated connectivity.

Volvo described the VNR as made to be driven in urban areas for P&D, liquid tanker, dry bulk, flatbed, and other regional-haul applications. Maneuverability and versatility in tight spaces was a focus in designing the new truck. With a 113-inch bumper to back of cab length, improved sightlines over the hood, and a 50-degree wheel cut, the truck can more easily navigate urban streets. Aerodynamics were also a point of emphasis, aimd at improving fuel economy when on the open road.

The driver’s experience in the cab was also of high importance, and the company’s chief designer said Volvo filtered every innovation “through the driver’s eyes.” This design philosophy found its way into the truck through features like a three-motion steering wheel, new seats with more adjustments to fit driver preferences, and various amenities.

Other driver-facing options include an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, offering high-end audio with WiFi, Bluetooth, navigation, apps, and an exterior camera. A new gauge cluster is larger with a color driver information display in the dash operated by wheel-mounted controls with access to trip information, performance data, and vehicle diagnostics.

Noting its power and efficiency, Volvo said it is offering the D11 as the VNR’s standard engine, rated for up to 425 horsepower. Available optionally is the Volvo D13 with up to 500 horsepower. Both engines feature wave pistons, a proprietary Volvo design that burns fuel more efficiently and a common rail fuel delivery system designed to be lighter, quieter and more precise. Each engine can be combined with an XE eXceptional Efficiency transmission package to make the VNR more efficient through downspeeding. Paired with a Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission as standard equipment allows the spec’ing of automated functions like Adaptive Loading to lift an axle when empty for more efficiency and Adaptive Gearing, which locks out overdrive when fully loaded.

The new Volvo VNR also offers passive and active safety technologies. Volvo Active Driver Assist warns drivers through sound and a critical warning signal projected onto the windshield when they approach too close to an object in front of them, and the system can automatically apply brakes to help mitigate a collision. LED headlights increase visibility and decrease light spillover onto oncoming traffic, making the road safer for everyone.
