What does a
truck of the future
look like?
The future may seem uncertain. Thoughts of fuel costs, legislation and demanding customers can keep a
grown man up at night. We know investing in a new truck is a big thing. Because we just did. And we know
how important it is that it’s great, not only today, but for many years to come.
That’s why we designed the new Volvo FH with one particular person in mind. One person who, today and
tomorrow, undoubtedly will have a huge impact on the success of any transport operator. The driver.

i-see*
Now every road is worth
remembering.
Lower fuel consumption by 5%.
Just activate the cruise control.
Wherever you are,
you can get help from the cloud.
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 and stores it in a
central database. When you’re driving, it
automatically uses its knowledge to save
fuel – up to 5% during a driving cycle
(when I-Cruise is engaged the whole time).
I-See doesn’t rely on maps. Since reality
tends to be more accurate, it memorises
the actual slopes instead. And now you
don’t have to have travelled the route
before to save fuel. The new version of
I-See stores all hills in a database free for
all other trucks to use. As long as someone has travelled the route before, I-See
can download the data and start saving
fuel immediately. So you might even save
some on your very first trip in your new
Volvo FH.
on the crests:
staying calm.
When approaching a downhill, I-See keeps the
truck from accelerating unnecessarily.

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.
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 and I-Cruise are also available as accessories. See page 50.

handling
If you recognise
the driving feel,
it’s probably
from your car.
Volvo FH has handling characteristics above the ordinary. We’ve virtually
designed every part of the truck to contribute to the stable feel and precise
steering. You really have to experience the result for yourself. But if you
want to know why it performs so well, here are the highlights:
Volvo Dynamic Steering.
It will revolutionise the way you drive.
This is a ground-breaking invention making driving more
relaxed and safe. We have fitted an electrical motor to
the steering gear. The motor is controlled 2000 times
every second via the truck’s electronic control units and
produces torque overlay. It provides power when needed,
obtaining a predetermined steering feel, independent of
load and tyres. It’s almost like driving a car.
Perfect stability at high speeds.
The steering cancels out disturbances and swallows
potholes on the road.
Total control at low speeds.
Up to 85% additional power simplifies steering and
contributes to reduced strain on your muscles.
Less sensitive to crosswinds.
The steering reduces the disturbance caused by
crosswinds, which makes driving more comfortable.
Stable on banked roads
Volvo Dynamic Steering improves course stability
when driving on banked roads.
The rear suspension stabiliser bar.
The engine suspension.
The rear cab suspension.
New Volvo-patented design with stabilisers
in front of the axle eliminates rear-chassis
torsion. This provides a very stable course
and therefore comfortable, safe and rapid
ride. The re-designed stabiliser bar also
makes it possible to specify the truck with
short rear overhang, a benefit for construction applications.
Improved front mounting prevents vibrations from spreading through the truck, to
provide an even more comfortable ride.
The cab must be softly sprung in order to
be comfortable to ride in. But it must not
lurch because this would result in gravity
shifting of the vehicle, which would affect
the handling characteristics adversely. We
solved it with a sophisticated suspension.
Vertical springs with increased spread
promote stability and driving comfort.
The front suspension.
Enhanced geometry on both leaf and air
front suspensions. Here is one of the major
reasons why the truck behaves very stable
and safe on the road. Take a drive yourself
and feel the comfort.
Easier reversing.
Reversing is also done much easier, because the
steering will keep you on a straight track.

i-shift
Forget the gearbox.
Just drive.
Eases your mind.
And lets your left foot rest.
Let I-Shift save you fuel.
The money will roll right in.
Remember your route?
I-See does too*.
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 allows you to step in and
shift gear manually.
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. It’s 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.
I-See literally takes the intelligence of
I-Shift one step further. It’s a groundbreaking software feature that stores all hills
in a database free for all other trucks to
use. As long as someone has travelled the
route before, I-See can download the data
and your truck can start using them. This
way, I-Shift can not only choose the best
gear at the time, but also prepare for the
upcoming topography. It’s like having an
experienced co-pilot, who knows every
bit of the road by rote. I-See saves up to
an additional 5% fuel (when I-Cruise is
engaged the whole time). Learn more
about I-See on page 6.
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 40.
How it works.
It may seem strange. Beneath the surface of I-Shift, the hallmark 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. See page 50. * Available for Euro 5.

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.
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.
5 levels for loading.
3 for driving.
All at your command.
Add functions from the
bodybuilder.
Use it as a door key.
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.
Keeping the chassis steady.
And the load in place.
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.
Load indicator.
Accurate and easy to overview.
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.
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.

Every drop
counts.
Cutting fuel costs and emissions is essential and should be easy. That’s why we have developed a number of
components and services that are designed to save fuel. How the driver handles the truck and how efficiently
the truck is used can make a huge difference in this respect.
Here are some important truck features and services that will enhance your truck’s fuel efficiency and help
your drivers to save fuel. Every drops counts.

Fast rear axle ratios.
Dynafleet.
Fuel Advice.
I-Shift – Volvo’s automated gearchanging
system – has set a new standard when it
comes to comfort and fuel economy. It’s
as convenient as an automatic transmission
and as close-ratio as a manual gearbox.
The airflow package consists of air deflectors on the roof and sides, as well as chassis skirts and side under-run protection.
The air deflectors have been developed
through comprehensive tests in the wind
tunnel and on the road to ensure the greatest possible fuel savings.
Volvo’s diesel engines deliver immense
pulling power. With higher torque it is possible – without raising engine revs – to fit
faster rear axle ratios, which helps lower
fuel consumption.
Precision. That’s what Volvo Trucks’ fleet
management system Dynafleet is all about.
At any given time you can see the exact
location and status of your trucks and drivers.
But even better, this information also shows
you precisely what areas to improve in order
to reach better profitability. The three Dynafleet services make this happen. Ready to

The gap.
A huge visibility improvement.
Ultra-slim housing.
For safety.
Upright A-pillars with a slim cross-section
and newly-designed mirrors – this has done
wonders for the visibility from inside the
Volvo FH cabs. The gap is up to 25% larger
on the driver side, and up to a massive 85%
larger on the passenger side. Invaluable,
not least in city traffic, allowing you to spot
other road users, such as pedestrians and
cyclists.
The new FH mirrors have slimmer housing
than ever before. That means they not only
help you see better backwards, they also
reveal more when you look ahead. On the
driver side, the area of vision has been
improved by over 20%. On the passenger
side, by over 10%. As a bonus, the design
also helps improve aerodynamics and is
less sensitive to soiling.
Electrically controlled
and heated.
Exterior vision cameras.
When there’s more to see.
Lane Changing Support.
Goodbye blind spot.
No need to scrape frost or moisture off
the mirrors. The heated mirrors take care
of that for you. And since all rear-view
mirrors are electrically controlled, you can
adjust them precisely without leaving the
cab. Just as convenient as it should be.
There are certain angles no mirror in the
world can reach. Fortunately, Volvo FH
is factory-prepared for fitting up to four
exterior cameras, wherever you need them.
Connected to the integrated secondary
information display (SID-High), they provide
a handy way to take a glance backwards,
for example when reversing or checking
the load.
Just beside the rear-view mirrors on the
passenger side is a small but significant
icon. When lit up, it indicates that Lane
Changing Support has spotted something
in the blind spot area, and you should
refrain from changing lane until it’s clear.
Indeed a life-saving safety feature. Read

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.
With the all-new My Truck app installed, your new Volvo FH 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.

Dynamic headlights.
Static cornering lights.
When driving at night, Volvo FH is a particularly good friend. The headlights produce
a powerful beam, providing you with an
early view on what happens down the road.
And, just as important, other road users
will see you stand out in the dark.
Never before seen on a truck. With dynamic
headlights, the dipped beam can 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 turn a corner 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.

Equip the headlamps with Bi-Xenon to

When approaching the truck at night, just

driver support systems
Keeping an extra eye
on the road.
Adaptive Cruise Control
and Collision Warning with
Emergengy Brake.
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.
The Emergency Brake takes this one
step further. It automatically assists you
in emergency braking if an impact is imminent, thus significantly reducing the risk
of severe injuries.
Lane Keeping Support.
Emergency brake light.
Drifting off lane is a common cause of
serious accidents. Too common, we think.
Lane Keeping Support tracks the road
markings with a camera, and alerts you
if you should unintentionally cross them.
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 be major and lead to
major pile-ups and cause fatal injuries.
Stretch Brake.
Driver Alert Support.
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 that 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.
Driver Alert Support is an intelligent system
that tracks your driving behaviour. If it differs
from normal and indicates tiredness, you
are alerted by a signal and a message in
the display, advising you to take a break.
The blind-spot area on the passenger side
can easily hide other road users. Lane
Changing Support is equipped with a radar
that checks that 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.
Also available as an accessory. See page 50.

Tailoring your Volvo FH.
No single truck fits all. That’s why the Volvo FH provides endless possibilities. The flexible chassis layout and VBI
(Volvo Bodybuilder Instructions) make it easy to prepare the truck for a superstructure. And the driveline, cabs and
equipment packages provide you with even more options. So welcome to a world of choices. A world where your
dealer happily will guide you in finding the perfect truck for your needs and wants.

The chassis is developed to give optimum space for superstructure and equipment. Here are some of the key features, which may vary depending on
the truck’s specification.
Solo
tractor
rigid
Rear air suspension and
Battery box (bbox-l)
Free frame space
short rear end
It is moved forward 300 mm compared
with previous design. On tractors this offers
100–120 litres more fuel capacity.
The chassis packaging can be moved
rearwards to create space for crane legs or
other equipment. (FAA10; approx. 500 mm),
(FAA20; approx. 600 mm).
The rear overhang can be shorter thanks to
a redesigned forward-mounted stabiliser bar.
This is a benefit for construction applications
and improves the asphalt-layer interface and
swapbody applications.
Battery box (BBOX-EF)
Placed in the rear between the chassis
frames is an option on tractors.
AdBlue tank*
On tractors the AdBlue tank can be mounted
on top of frame, behind the cab, offering more
fuel capacity (ADTP-BC).

The upper hole row is reserved for the body
builder. All brackets in upper hole row have an
offset and a 8 mm spacer. No rivets are used
in the upper hole row.

Volvo EBS (Electronically controlled Brake System) disc brakes are available with program packages STD and MED for rigids and tractors. 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 features of the EBS Standard
package, see below.
Automatic Parking Brake Release
ESP (Electronic Stability Program)
The parking brake is released when the driver
pushes the accelerator pedal and a gear is
selected (only I-Shift gearbox).
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.
EBS Status Control
EBS status monitoring via the TEA2+ vehicle
electronic system and Volvo Tech Tool.
additional options
In addition to the programme packages there
are the following options:
Hill Start Aid
The brakes are only released once there is
sufficient engine torque to propel the vehicle
forward.
Lining Wear Analysis
Emergency Brake Light
Enables the driver to request puls braking
of the trailer. The brake is then automatically
activated and the risk of jack-knifing is minimised. Only for rigid.

i-shift functions explained
i-shift
12-speed splitter and range gearbox with automated gearchanging system. I-Shift can be fitted with a compact retarder, power take-off, emergency
power steering pump and oil cooler.
I-Shift
Type
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.

Gives faster and gentler changes through
intelligent utilisation of the engine brake, the
vehicle’s clutch and a special transmission
brake.
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.
Basic Gear Selection Adjustment
Smart Cruise Control
Makes it possible to adjust gear selection via
the gear lever’s buttons during engine braking
in automatic mode.
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.
I-Shift software packages
Basic
Supplied as standard with I-Shift and gives
the gearbox its basic functions.
I-Roll
Distribution & Construction
Long Haul & Fuel Economy with i-see*
Tailors the gearbox’s work for distribution and
construction operations. Features include
functions that aid the driver when starting and
in close-quarter manoeuvring.
Adds I-See, including I-Cruise, to the Long
Haul & Fuel Economy package, for even
larger fuel savings.
Heavy Duty Transport
Long Haul & Fuel Economy
Contains intelligent functions that minimise
fuel consumption. This makes the program
package particularly suitable for long-haul
operations.
Optimises I-Shift for heavy gross combination
weights (>85 tonnes).

driving in automatic mode. The kick-down
function selects the right gear for maximum
acceleration.
Enhanced performance – Bad roads
Several functions that adjust gearchanging
and assist starting and driving in poor road
conditions and hilly terrain.
Gearbox Oil Temperature Monitor
Shows the gearbox oil’s temperature in the
information display.
I-Shift software packages
Enhanced PTO Functions
By interacting with EBS and ECS, starting
and close-quarter manoeuvring are made
easier. Maximises the VEB braking effect
by automatically selecting the right gear so
that the engine operates at high revs. When
changing gear during engine braking, the
wheel brakes are activated to compensate
for loss of braking torque.
I-See*
A smart I-Shift software that can store
topography data and use this information to
optimise driving when the truck travels the
same stretch of road a second time. I-See can
be used for saving fuel and improving driving
comfort. When ordering I-See the cruise
control I-Cruise is also included. I-Cruise can
also be ordered seperately.
Heavy Duty GCW control
Optimises gear selection for high gross combination weights, 85–180 tonnes, for certain
engine/gearbox combinations.

i-parkcool
Centre front drawer, high
I-ParkCool produces cool air at standstill and
can interact with the cab parking heater to
generate a comfortable climate, for example
during nights when the temperature often
goes from hot to cold in a few hours.
The system checks the battery health to ensure the startability of the truck. It calculates
how much cooling power is needed in order to
air-condition the cabin. If the batteries aren’t
fully charged, the system will calculate how
much it can be used (without jeopardising the
startability). This way, it provides a nice and
steady cooling performance during the whole
night.
The system is roughly 20 dB more silent than
competing systems in the market, further
improving sleeping quality.
The climate system is fully integrated in the
vehicle’s normal air ventilation system* and hot
or cold air respectively is distributed through
the ordinary vents comfortably and equally divided. Cab aerodynamics and standing height
inside the cab are not affected.
* Except the cab heater (PH-CAB).
