What makes a good
truck a great one?
Most people would say it’s all about efficiency. A big word, but what
does it really mean in practice?
Well, to us it means a truck that’s rolling when it’s supposed to.
A truck that does so using every drop of fuel to its maximum. A truck
that makes the job of the bodybuilder easy – and fast – regardless of
superstructure. And, not least, a truck that allows drivers to do their
job better with less effort.
This is exactly what we designed the new Volvo FM to be. A truck
where you’ll find many innovative features that we believe will change
your day. Welcome to your future transport specialist.

handling
If you recognise
the driving feel,
it’s probably
from your car.
If you spend your day behind the wheel, you know the importance of good
handling. Because when it comes to trucks, driving comfort is never just
a matter of comfort. When the truck responds perfectly to your commands,
you do a better job, run lower risk of strain injuries and are less likely to end
up in an accident.
That’s why the new Volvo FM comes with driving characteristics above
the ordinary. Let’s take a closer look.
Steady as a train.
We’ve completely redesigned the geometry
of the front leaf suspension. The result is
a greatly improved steering stability, since
the rolling forces are efficiently dampened.
You will feel in total control. And don’t be
surprised if the roads suddenly don’t seem
so scarily narrow anymore, for example
when meeting another truck at high speed.
6
Get rid of those
constant corrections.
A poor front air suspension makes a truck
behave like a boat, forcing the driver to
constantly correct the course to stay on
target. The new Volvo FM is different.
The truck simply follows your intentions,
regardless of whether you want to keep a
straight course or make a smooth curve.
Keeping unwanted forces away.
The rear suspension has undergone a
complete makeover, now featuring a new
Volvo-patented design with stabilisers
in front of the axle. It efficiently prevents
unwanted road forces from transferring
to the frame. It also stops the trailer from
causing the truck to oversteer when entering a curve.
Volvo Dynamic Steering.
Better than car-like.
It will completely revolutionise the way
you drive. Perfect stability at high speeds.
Total control at low speeds. And drastically
reduced strain on your muscles. You really
have to book a test drive and experience it
for yourself. But if you want to learn more
first, see page 16.
7
i-see*
Now every road is worth
remembering.
Save up to 5% fuel.
Every time but the first.
Combine I-Shift and the GPS with an
intelligent cruise control, and you get
I-See. It’s a unique system that learns the
topography of the road. Later on, it automatically uses its knowledge to save fuel
– up to 5% during a driving cycle (when
I-Cruise is engaged the whole time).
3,500 memorable hills.
I-See doesn’t rely on maps. Since reality
tends to be more accurate, I-See stores
the actual slopes you’ve passed instead.
The memory can hold up to 3,500 hills, an
equivalent to around 5,000 kilometers.
On the crests:
staying calm.
8
Before the uphills:
taking off.
On the uphills:
keeping from downshifting.
When I-See knows an uphill is coming, it lets
the speed increase, approaching the upper
speed limit, to gain momentum. The truck can
stay longer in a higher gear.
When climbing, I-See uses its stored knowledge
to avoid unnecessary downshifts towards the
top. You approach the crest smoothly without
wasting fuel in a lower gear.
* Available for Euro 5.
When approaching a downhill, I-See keeps the
truck from accelerating unnecessarily.
Before the downhill:
rolling on.
Just before the slope, the driveline temporarily
disengages, allowing the truck to roll. This saves
energy, and minimises the need for braking.
On the downhills:
braking in time.
In the hollows:
some extra schwung.
I-Cruise
I-See knows when the slope ends. Thus, when
gaining speed downhill, it can apply the engine
brake gently in time – instead of abruptly at the
end – to prepare for the upcoming topography.
When a downhill is followed by an immediate
uphill, I-See really comes into its own. It lets the
truck roll, gaining speed and momentum to
climb uphill with less effort.
One part of I-See is called I-Cruise. It’s the
intelligent cruise control that adjusts the speed
for minimum fuel consumption. You can order it
separately, and save up to 2% fuel.
I-See is also available as an accessory.

volvo diesel engines
This is where
fuel efficiency
starts.
The Volvo torque curve.
You’ll feel it in the pedal.
Excellent torque at low revs. An extremely wide max torque
range. Peak torque meets peak power. Volvo’s leadership
in diesel-engine technology is clearly visible once you start
comparing engine curves. You’ll experience fast acceleration,
excellent pulling power, comfortable low-speed handling and,
not least, a fuel-efficient and pleasurable ride at cruising
speed.
A wide engine range. Pick yours.
The engine range for Volvo FM comprises both 11-litre and
13-litre engines with a wide choice of power ratings. You
can rest assured there’s always one that suits your transport
operations. View the complete specs for all engines on
page 39.
Fuel-efficiency built-in.
The optimised combustion chamber geometry. The fast and
precise EMS-controlled injection. The high gas-fill ratio. We
could go on listing what makes Volvo engines hard to beat
at fuel economy. Your bottom line will reap the benefits. So
will the environment.
Volvo Engine Brake.
Minimise wear on the brake pedal.
If you want to maintain a high average speed without compromising safety or fuel economy, you need a powerful engine
brake. That’s why Volvo Engine Brake (VEB), available on
the D11, is so widely appreciated. And on the D13, you have
access to our patented VEB +, absorbing up to a massive
375 kW (510 hp), thanks to the unique camshaft design with
four rocker arms.
10
EMS-controlled

the air compressor along
with the power steering,
oil, and fuel feed pumps.
PTO with up to 1000 Nm
Located at the rear,
close to the flywheel, the
engine PTO can deliver
a massive torque output.
11
Bodybuilding interface
There is no such
thing as a complicated
superstructure.
Whatever you want to put behind your cab, the Volvo FM is
prepared for it. We’ve gone great lengths to make things easy
for the bodybuilder. Because this not only saves time, but also
avoids unnecessary and costly reconstruction work.
Here’s some of the features that bodybuilders tend to
like the most about Volvo.
12
Volvo Bodybuilder Instructions.
Power take-offs for every need.
The frame is straight.
As soon as you order your Volvo FM, exact
drawings of your very truck are available
in the intuitive VBI online portal. The bodybuilder can start working while we build
the truck, which dramatically shortens leadtimes.
There’s a vast array of PTOs available, both
engine mounted and gearbox mounted, for
driving all sorts of equipment. See page
50.
Unlike most other trucks, a Volvo features
a frame that is completely straight and
parallel behind the cab. This makes the
bodybuilder’s job a whole lot easier.
Staying out of the
bodybuilder’s way.
A dedicated row of holes.
Choose your exact rear overhang.
The frame comes with an upper row of holes
that is designated for the superstructure.
Since we don’t use any rivets here, the bodybuilder can easily attach the equipment.
The rear frame can be factory cut exactly
as you need it – in 50 mm increments –
to perfectly match your superstructure.
Regardless of whether you are in need
of an extremely short rear overhang or a
longer one.
Loads of specification options.
4 different rear end cuts.
Rear underrun position.
The more possible combinations, the easier
a truck is to tailor. That’s why the new Volvo
FM has more options than ever before when
it comes to axle configurations, chassis
heights and wheelbases. See pages
41–43.
We can now deliver your FM from factory
with four different rear frame-end cuts:
upper (for tippers, hook-lifts and refuse
trucks), lower (for centre-axle trailers), bent
(for tractors) or straight (for rigids).
To widen the rear end options even further,
the rear underrun protection can be placed
in several different positions.
Two different frame heights.
Body Builder Module.
Perfect for swap bodies.
Choose between a 266 mm and a 300 mm
frame depending on the demands of the
superstructure.
Makes it easy for the bodybuilder to tap
into the truck’s electrical system to tailor
functions. You can access them conveniently on the flexible dashboard switches
and in the Work Remote.
Not all truck bodies are permanent. The
295 mm stroke of the new rear air suspension in combination with the extra low
chassis is the perfect solution if you transport temporary ones.
Attachment brackets.
Prepared for a crane.
Volvo FM can be factory prepared with
body attachment brackets, mounted on the
frame. Now available not only in the wheelbase area, but also on the rear overhang.
A low chassis and high axle loads. That
is what’s on every crane builders wishlist.
Volvo FM comes with both. What’s more,
we can create a free frame space near
the cab, and even deliver your truck with
factory-mounted crane plates.
More reinforcements
than ever before.
We never allow our engineers to place anything above the top of the frame. This area
belongs entirely to the bodybuilder – adding
a lot of flexibility.
Also available as an accessory.
Some heavy applications put a lot of pressure on the frame. But don’t worry. The
new Volvo FM has more choices of innerliners than ever, providing all the reinforcement you may need.
13
instrument cluster
All you need
to see to focus
on the road.
Information is central.
A quick glance at the centre of the speedometer is enough to get key information about
gear, I-Shift mode, (adaptive) cruise control,
auxiliary brakes and tachometer.
14
Secondary Information Display.
To the right of the instrument cluster, you’ll find the home of infotainment – an integrated display. It’s called the SID (Secondary
Information Display) and contains plenty of nice features. Some of
them require the SID-High variant (shown), which is a high-end 7"
colour display.
driver times feedback
audio system
Helps you handle your driving and
resting times, so you’ll know when
it’s time to take a break.
Lets you enjoy full information on
each track, and navigate easily
among them.
Built-in GPS navigator
exterior vision cameras
phone
dynafleet
Volvo FM has a brand new, fully
integrated navigator. Knowing the
truck’s specification, it can use map
data to help you choose a route
that suits your axle load and vehicle
height. It also integrates nicely with
Dynafleet, so you can receive exact
GPS destinations from the office.
SID-High shows the input from up
to four cameras in full resolution.
Connects via Bluetooth so you can
browse your phone book, talk into
the built-in microphone and listen
through the speakers.
No separate display needed. All
information from Volvo’s transport
management system is now integrated in the SID-High.
Driver Information Display.
Convenient 4" display showing a lot of additional information.
Choose what you want to see, using the steering wheel buttons.
Also available as an accessory.

load indicator
Plenty of status indicators and trip
information. The customised view
lets you select up to three favourites.
The enhanced load indicator allows
you to precisely monitor axle load.
Understandable
error messages
No perplexing fault codes. The error
messages quickly and accurately
tell you what’s wrong – in plain text.
15
Volvo Dynamic Steering
Responding to your
slightest command.
And nothing else.
What has been called the biggest thing since power steering is now available in a series-production truck. Volvo
Dynamic Steering is based on a patented concept, and will completely change the way you drive. Try it, and you’ll
never want to go back to a regular truck. Even your car will pale in comparison.
How it works.
Volvo Dynamic Steering consists of an electric motor,
connected to the steering gear. By receiving input from
several sensors, the ECU (Electrical Control Unit) can
determine where the truck is going as well as what the
driver’s intentions are.
The motor is controlled 2000 times every second, using
a principle called “torque overlay”, to correct unintentional
steering movements and to provide extra torque when
needed. Altogether creating a perfect and consistent
steering feel, regardless of load and tyres.
16
Effortless
Volvo Dynamic Steering
increases the steering
force by up to 85%.
At high speeds:
Let nothing set you off course.
Driving straight isn’t as easy as one would
think. In fact, you often have to compensate
for kicks from road ruts, pot holes and road
markings. Or correct your course after
braking on a mixed-friction surface. Yes,
sometimes even side winds can disturb
your ride.
Volvo Dynamic Steering changes this
completely. Just loosen your grip on the
wheel, concentrate on the traffic and be
sure the truck won’t change direction until
you want it to.
At low speeds:
Steer with one finger and save
your back.
This is where Volvo Dynamic Steering
really will change your day. And your future.
Because you no longer need to strain your
muscles to manoeuvre the truck at low
speeds. Volvo Dynamic Steering provides
you with all the steering force you need.
You can literally steer the truck with one
finger. This not only gives you complete
control of the vehicle but also practically
eliminates the strain on your neck and
shoulders.
When reversing:
Perfect control without strain.
Reversing with a fully laden truck is one of
the most challenging and trying aspects of
the job. Especially where you need to focus
every bit of your attention on the surroundings. Not so with Volvo Dynamic Steering.
You now reverse with perfect precision –
almost without effort. And as soon as you
let go of the wheel, it automatically returns
to neutral, reducing the strain even further.
Furthermore, if you need to reverse long
distances, here’s something new. The course
stability is so great that you can reverse a
truck and trailer more than a hundred metres
without drifting off course.
17
my truck
Keep your truck
where it belongs.
In your pocket, for example.
With the all-new My Truck app installed, your new Volvo FM is
just a tap away. Now you can monitor the status of the truck
before you arrive, to make sure it’s ready for take-off when you
are. Just as easy as it should be.
18
Always return to a
comfortable climate.
Keep it safe.
Check the dash before you enter.
Make sure you locked the doors and that
the alarm is properly activated. Should the
alarm go off, you’re immediately alerted.
Do your pre-trip inspection before you
arrive. My Truck lets you check your fuel,
AdBlue, engine oil, washer and coolant
levels, as well as the status of the battery
and lights.
One app to rule them all…
…or one truck with multiple apps.
How to get started.
Connect your entire fleet to one app. All
you have to do is to tap the button and
follow the instructions. Provide each of the
trucks with a unique name and picture, and
it’ll be easy to find them in the list.
Sharing the truck with other drivers? Does
your boss also want the app? Or do you
want to use it on both phone and tablet?
No problem. The app is free to download,
and you can connect an unlimited number
of devices to one truck.
First of all, you need a new Volvo FM with
the My Truck software enabled. Then just
head away to the App Store and download
the app. Now all you need to do is connect
your truck from the app. Couldn’t be any
simpler.
No need to be in the cab to activate the
climate system. My Truck allows you to
start it instantly from anywhere. You can
also set it to start on timer, or schedule
weekly settings, so you’ll always arrive to
a perfect workplace temperature.

Every driver knows the value of a good
seat. The one in the new Volvo FM can
be adjusted 20 cm fore-aft and 10 cm
vertically. And it features a new cushion
that’s more comfortable than ever.
The Volvo FM interior has been redesigned.
Colours and materials have been carefully
selected to create a calm and attractive
driver’s environment. Choose from three

When driving at night, Volvo FM is a particularly good friend. The headlights produce
a powerful beam, providing you with an
early view of what is happening down the
road. And, just as important, other road
users will see you stand out in the dark.
First introduced on the new Volvo FH –
now available for the Volvo FM. They allow
the dipped beam to pan to follow the road.
Whenever you make a curve, so do the
lights. On many stretches, this leads to a
massively increased field of vision.
When you slow down to make a turn in
the dark, the enhanced static cornering
lights come to your assistance. As soon as
you activate the turn signal, the immediate
area on the side lights up, helping you spot
unprotected road users.

i-shift
Forget the gearbox.
Just drive.
26
Eases your mind.
And lets your left foot rest.
An unexpected option.
I-Shift without gearstick.
Let I-Shift save you fuel.
The money will roll right in.
Driving I-Shift is a real pleasure. Without
the clutch pedal, you can safely sit back
and concentrate on the other two. I-Shift
uses its built-in intelligence to quickly and
automatically choose the right gear at all
times. And the software provides shifting
skills that are impossible for even the best
of drivers to match. Still, if you want to get
more involved, you can. The buttons on the
shift selector allow you to step in and shift
gear manually.
If you’re used to driving with I-Shift, you’ve
probably noticed that you don’t actually use
the shift selector that much. That’s why the
new Volvo FM offers you the option of getting rid of it altogether and have it replaced
with four switches on the dashboard (still
within easy reach, of course). Freeing that
precious space makes it a little bit easier
to move around in the cab.
I-Shift is designed to save fuel. First of all,
the internal energy losses are low – actually
lower than on manual gearboxes. But it’s
the electronics that really make the difference. When driving in Economy mode, every
gearchange is timed precisely, to let the
engine work at its most efficient rpm range.
And then there’s I-Roll*. A unique feature
used when driving downhill, automatically
disengaging the engine to make use of
the truck’s momentum instead of fuel. The
result? Up to 2% lower fuel consumption.
Not enough for you? Add I-See**. Learn
more on page 8.
* Available for Euro 4 and 5.
** Available for Euro 5.
How would you like your I-Shift?
The software makes it possible to tailor I-Shift to your
driving conditions. Choose from four add-on packages:
Long Haul & Fuel Economy (with or without I-See) for
efficient highway driving, Distribution & Construction
with smart functions for close-quarter manoeuvring
and Heavy Duty Transport optimising I-Shift for gross
combination weights above 85 tonnes. For a complete
overview, see page 48.
How it works.
It may seem strange. Beneath the surface of I-Shift, the archetype of modern transmissions,
hides an old-school unsynchronised manual gearbox. (Hence the compact design and low
internal losses.) But of course there’s much more to I-Shift than that. The secret lies in
the intelligent electronic control unit. It’s responsible for controlling the pneumatic system
that handles the clutch and shifts. By constantly receiving information about vehicle speed,
acceleration, weight, road grade, torque demand and more, it can carry out every shift with
extreme precision. It also communicates closely with the engine, which in turn adjusts revs
and engine brake effect for fast and comfortable shifting.
Also available as an accessory.

New Volvo Gold Contract.
The all-inclusive uptime package.
New Service Planning.
One step ahead.
Features Online.
Your wireless technician.
To keep your truck on the road making
money, there’s the New Volvo Gold Contract
– the ultimate service package. It includes
service and repairs. It includes preventive
maintenance. And it includes New Service
Planning and Features Online, two truly
groundbreaking service features made possible by the new TGW (Telematics Gateway).
Thanks to the telematics gateway, the
workshop can access information such as
engine data, mileage, fuel consumption,
diagnostic trouble codes, driving conditions
and status of crucial components (brake
pads, clutch, battery, air dryer etc.). That
means we can alert you in time, before
you risk an unplanned stop. But most importantly, we’re always perfectly prepared
when you enter the workshop. So you’ll be
back on the road before you know it.
Some things shouldn’t require a workshop
visit. And now they don’t. With Features
Online, a service technician can access
your vehicle remotely to calibrate displayed
fuel consumption, fuel tank size (if you’ve
fitted extra tanks) and your preferred road
speed limit. It’s even possible to enable
the load indicator function from a distance.
All you have to do is stop at the roadside
for a short while. Service has never been
quicker.
Need help?
Just push the button.
An unplanned stop out in the middle of
nowhere? Volvo Action Service is just
a button push away. VAS On Call automatically connects you to an operator who
speaks your language (the truck checks
the nationality of the card in the digital
tachograph). Once connected, service
is both fast and accurate, because they
already know your chassis ID, position
and possible diagnostic trouble codes.

Low sleeper cab
Spacious where it matters.
Above the roof.
1.39 metres at your disposal.
A clean cab roof.
If you transport cars, you know how to
appreciate a low truck. Because whether
there’s room for one more or not is often
a matter of centimetres. That’s why you’ll
be pleased to know that the low sleeper
cab on the new Volvo FM is lower than
ever – only 2.61 metres (given the right
specification). This leaves as much as
139 centimetres for your precious cargo,
if you need to stay within the European
4-metre limit.
If you want to take advantage of the low
cab height, you don’t want anything sticking
up from the roof. Fortunately, the antennas
on the Volvo FM can all be moved out of
the way. The WLAN antenna can be moved
to the front shelf, the phone antenna to the
dashboard and the toll collect, FM, CB radio
and Dynafleet antennas can be fitted to
the cab sides.
Driving comfort.
A matter of height.
Great handling has always been a key
feature of the Volvo FM. Now it’s better
than ever, and it doesn’t get any better
than with the X-Low chassis. Plus, the
new air suspension system ECS4 lets
you choose from three customisable
driving heights, improving ride comfort
even further. Learn more about ECS4
on page 32.
Easy entry and exit.
One of the most appreciated features of
the Volvo FM cabs is the entry step. And
it doesn’t get any lower than with the X-Low
chassis – only 26 cm above the ground
(depending on tyre dimension and brand,
of course). Add to that a door that opens a
full 90 degrees and an optional grab handle,
and you have a cab you comfortably enter
and exit many times a day without strain.

load handling
Keep a closer
watch on the load.
From afar.
The electronically controlled suspension (ECS) improves driving comfort and helps making sure the cargo travels
safely. ECS4 is the latest version and has brought even more possibilities, with the Work Remote as the most
prominent example. You now have perfect control, regardless of whether you’re sitting behind the wheel or walking
around the truck.
5 levels for loading.
3 for driving.
All at your command.
ECS includes four bellows per axle (two
for pusher axles), providing a virtually
parallel lift of the chassis. You can easily
set the height you prefer. The system lets
you store five different docking heights,
something that comes in handy when you
arrive at a familiar loading bay ramp. You
can also choose from three customisable
driving levels, to optimise ground clearance
or aerodynamics.
32
Also available as an accessory.
Keeping the chassis steady.
And the load in place.
Load indicator.
Accurate and easy to overview.
ECS steadily keeps the chassis level,
regardless of how the cargo is distributed.
It prevents sideway rolling, making sure
the truck is always in balance. The Work
Remote also allows you to manually compensate for side kneeling.
Intuitive menus and displays let you see
exactly how the load is distributed along
the vehicle. Weights, axle loads and bogie
loads are all specified separately, so you
can easily make sure they are within the
limits, on the truck as well as on the trailer.
Calibration is easy too. You can fine-tune
both truck and trailer, for accurate measure­ments at all times.
Balance it all with your fingertips.
Control your equipment.
Turn the lights on.
Cut the wire. With the Work Remote in your
hand, you can control the air suspension
manually while walking around freely.
Start and stop the engine and up to four
PTOs. You can also adjust engine speed,
and store the rpm setting for quick access.
Do you have work lights, beacons or specific
lights from the bodybuilder? Use the Work
Remote to switch them on or off.
Add functions from the
bodybuilder.
Use it as a door key.
Depending on superstructure, you can
control several other functions. All are
easily accessible through the menus, and
can have the same icons as the buttons
on the dashboard.
Yes, it is a bit bigger than the regular key
fob, but still. It’s quite convenient to be able
to lock and unlock the cab doors without
putting down the remote.
Integrated tail lift controls.
No need to carry around two remote controls. The upgraded Work Remote allows
you to conveniently raise and lower the
tail lift.

Chassis layout
Whatever you need space for,
here’s plenty.
The Air Production
Modulator (APM)
On tractors, the air compressor
control unit has now been moved
to the area between the chassis
frames, providing more room for
chassis-mounted equipment or
fuel tanks.
The battery box
We’ve moved the battery box 300 mm
to make room for some 100 to 120
extra litres of fuel. But that’s not all.
It can also be installed at the rear
and moved out of the way completely
(on air-suspended tractors). This
corresponds to an additional 300
litres of fuel space, and facilitates
body building.
34
The air tanks
Depending on your truck’s
specification, the air tanks can
be installed in a multitude of
different positions. This allows
for even greater flexibility.
The AdBlue tank*
On tractors, a new 50-litre AdBlue
tank can be installed behind the cab
(on top of the frame), freeing space
on the chassis side. * Available for
Euro 4 and 5.
An empty chassis side
If your superstructure requires it, it’s
often possible to have your Volvo FM
specified with all equipment on one
side, so the bodybuilder can have the
other side to himself.
The fuel tanks
If you’re like most people, refuelling is
something you want to do as cheaply
and as seldom as possible. That’s why
the Volvo FM can be equipped with a
vast range of fuel tanks in different
shapes, positions, heights, volumes
and materials. Sizes range from 150
to 900 litres and can be combined
in numerous ways to maximise your
fuel capacity.
35
the fuel deal*
Every drop counts.
So how about 11%?
Cutting fuel costs and emissions should be easy. That’s why we’ve bundled
our most efficient fuel-saving options into two packages. One of them adds
features to the truck itself. The other is a collection of several useful services.
If you sign up for both, you can count on reducing your fuel consumption by
up to a full 11%. You can of course also get the two separately, or just pick
the features you like.
Fuel advice
Gives you access to our fuel
management coaches – true experts
in reducing fuel consumption. Every
month, they send you enhanced fuel
reports with personalised advice on
how to improve. You can get more
advice via the dedicated help desk,
or log on to the site to find hands-on
tips and inspiration.
Dynafleet
Fuel & Environment
Volvo’s transport management system
lets you monitor fuel consumption in real
time from anywhere through an intuitive
web interface. Analyse trends and find
out where there’s room for improvement,
guided by built-in reports on fuel, driver
behaviour and environmental impact.

24V 150A ALTERNATOR.
more power
for less fuel.
A very energy-efficient alternator,
needing less fuel to charge the
batteries. Especially valuable if
you consume a lot of power, for
example when you’re spending
nights in the cab.
Engine idle shutdown.
Save fuel while standing
still.
A smart feature that lets you save
fuel by automatically turning the
engine off after two and a half
minutes of idling.
Also available as an accessory.
I-See*.
the farsighted CO-PILOT.
I-See uses pre-recorded data
about the topography of the road
to lower fuel consumption. It
controls gearshifts and speed to
make maximum use of the truck’s
momentum, leading to substantial
fuel-savings. Read more about
I-See on page 8.
Clutchable air

The air compressor is automatically declutched when not needed,
leading to lower fuel consumption.

driver support systems
Keeping an extra eye
on the road.
Stretch Brake.
Lane Changing Support.
Electronic Stability Program.
In certain situations, such as turning or
driving downhill on a slippery road, the
trailer risks catching up with the truck,
creating a hazardous jack-knife effect.
The Stretch Brake is a new Volvo feature,
designed to stop this from happening.
By pulse braking the trailer, the vehicle
combination is stretched, and the danger
reduced. The system can be automatically
activated in risky situations, at speeds up
to 50 km/h.
The blind-spot area on the passenger side
can easily hide other road users. Lane
Changing Support is equipped with a radar
that checks this area when you activate the
turn signal. If the area’s not clear, you are
notified by a sound and a flashing icon by
the mirror.
Volvo’s Electronic Stability Program (ESP)
efficiently reduces the risk of skidding and
rollovers. In risky situations it instantly steps
in, reducing engine power and braking the
truck and trailer. Each wheel of the truck
is braked individually. ESP is now available
for most truck specifications, both tractors
and rigids.
Emergency brake light.
Adaptive Cruise Control with
Forward Collision Warning.
If you slam on the brakes, the brake lights
flash rapidly to alert the vehicles behind
you. An easy way of avoiding rear-end collisions, which can lead to major pile-ups and
cause fatal injuries.
38
Also available as an accessory.
Follow the traffic rhythm without effort.
The radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control
(ACC) keeps a safe distance to the vehicle
in front by controlling the accelerator and
all available brakes. If there’s a risk of
collision, warning lights are projected on
the windscreen.
39
specifications
Tailoring your Volvo FM.

brakes
Volvo EBS (Electronically controlled Brake System) disc brakes are available with EBS Standard and EBS Medium program packages for tractors and
rigids. ESP is available for tractors and rigids with 4×2, 6×2 and 6×4 drive. In this way Volvo can offer ESP on virtually all ADR applications and EMS
combinations. The brake range also includes Volvo Z-cam drum brakes with ABS (Anti-lock Braking System).
EBS MEDIUM
In addition to the EBS Standard package,
EBS Medium adds the following features.
Automatic Parking Brake Release
The parking brake is released when the driver
pushes the accelerator pedal and a gear is
selected (only I-Shift gearbox).
EBS Status Control
EBS status monitoring via the TEA2+ vehicle
electronic system and Volvo Tech Tool.
Parking Brake Activator on Trailer
When the ignition is on, the parking brake is
automatically activated even on the trailer.
Hill Start Aid
The brakes are only released once there is
sufficient engine torque to propel the vehicle
forward.
Lining Wear Analysis
Brake lining warning – calculates the remaining mileage available with the current brake
linings.
44
Also available as an accessory.
ESP (Electronic Stability Program)
The brake stability system applies the brakes
individually on each wheel, thereby providing
stability for the entire vehicle combination and
counteracting jack-knifing, rollover and trailer
swing. ESP fulfils the legislation of Electronic
Vehicle Stability Control.
Emergency Brake Light
additional options
In addition to the program packages there are
the following options:
Stretch Brake
Enables the driver to request pulse braking
of the trailer. The brake is then automatically
activated and the risk of jack-knifing is minimised. Only for rigids.
When you panic brake from speeds above
50 km/h, the brake lights flash with four
flashes per second.
Hydraulic retarder
Gearbox-mounted compact retarder with a
max effect of 440 kW.

i-shift functions explained
Basic Shift Strategy
Automatic selection of the right starting ratio
(1st – 6th gear). The choice of starting gear is
influenced by gross weight and road gradient.
Launch Control
additional options
Optimises gear selection and EBS functions
for manoeuvring at low speeds. Among other
things, ensures that the Hill Start Aid function
is only activated on uphill gradients.
Several functions that make power take-off
use easier.
I-Roll*
Performance Shift
Gives faster and gentler changes through
intelligent utilisation of the engine brake, the
vehicle’s clutch and a special transmission
brake.
Enhanced PTO Functions
Enhanced Gear Selection
Automatic engagement and disengagement
of a freewheel function for the purpose of reducing fuel consumption. I-Roll is used when
neither engine power nor engine braking is
needed, for instance on flat roads.
* Available for Euro 4 and 5.
Adjustment including kick-down
Makes it possible to adjust gear selection via
the gear lever’s buttons during start and when
driving in automatic mode. The kick-down
function selects the right gear for maximum
acceleration.
Basic Gear Selection Adjustment
Makes it possible to adjust gear selection via
the gear lever’s buttons during engine braking
in automatic mode.
Smart Cruise Control
Gearbox Oil Temperature Monitor
Interacts with the vehicle’s Brake Cruise and
ensures that the auxiliary brakes are not activated unnecessarily. The free-wheel function
can thus be utilised to an even greater extent.
Shows the gearbox oil’s temperature in the
information display.
I-See*
Enhanced Shift Strategy
By interacting with EBS and ECS, starting
and close-quarter manoeuvring are made
easier. Maximises the VEB/VEB + braking
effect by automatically selecting the right
gear so that the engine operates at high
revs. When a gearchange is performed during
engine braking, the wheel brakes are activated
to compensate for loss of braking torque.
Enhanced performance – Bad roads
Several functions that adjust gearchanging
and assist starting and driving in poor road
conditions and hilly terrain.
A smart I-Shift software that can store
topo­graphical data and use this information
to save fuel and improve driving comfort. The
data is saved in a database available for other
I-See users. When ordering I-See, the cruise
control I-Cruise is also included. I-Cruise can
also be ordered separately.
* Available for Euro 5.
Heavy Duty GCW control
Optimises gear selection for high gross
combination weights, 85–180 tonnes.
Manual gearboxes
14-speed splitter and range manual gearbox. Cable operation – with separate cables for longitudinal and lateral movements – results in short and
distinct gear settings. Patented synchromesh with servo function means low gearchanging forces. The gearboxes can be fitted with a compact
retarder, power take-off, emergency power steering pump and oil cooler.
