Volvo Trucks. Driving Progress volvo fh product guide – euro 3–5 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. 2 3 overview 24 new Volvo Gold Contract With the new Volvo Gold Contract your truck can now be constantly connected to the workshop, allowing us to plan your service based on your operations and actual needs.

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. 6 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. 7 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. 8 9 cab interior Globetrotter reinvented. the sky is the limit new, Modern and ergonomic dashboard Back-saving steering wheel adjustment with neck-tilt more features overleaf Wider bed for sleep and rest 10 4 extra cm between wheel and belly 11 cab interior Packed with new features.

New rear cab mounts. New steering-gear position. New front end geometry. New engine mounting. And more. We’ve taken many steps to increase driving comfort. We have to say the result is pleasing. Alcohol doesn’t belong in traffic. That’s why the alcolock does. Factory fit it to your Volvo FH, and send a clear message to your customers how seriously you take road safety. Also available as an accessory. See page 50. 13 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. find all gearboxes, i-shift and manual, on pages 40–42 15 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. work remote 16 Also available as an accessory. the fuel deal 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. the truck that saves fuel the services that save fuel Intelligent shifting. Airflow package. 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 get started? 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. If needed you can get more help via the dedicated support, or log on to the site to find hands-on tips and inspiration. 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 the nights in the cab. Clutchable air compressor. No unnecessary pressure. The air compressor is automatically declutched when not needed, leading to lower fuel consumption. I-See. The farsighted co-pilot.* I-See memorises the roads in a database. When driving the route, it controls gearshifts and speed to make maximum use of the truck’s momentum, leading to substantial fuel-savings. 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. Dynafleet. Fuel & Environment. Volvo’s fleet management system lets you monitor fuel consumption in real time from any location, 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. Driver training. Efficient Driving. Skilled drivers have an enormous impact on fuel-efficiency. Efficient Driving is the course where we focus on how to drive smartly and save fuel. Also available as an accessory. * Available for Euro 5. 18 19 rear-view mirrors New mirrors you’ll see less of. +25% 20 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.

Just as easy as it should be. 28 29 headlights The future ahead looks bright. So do the curves and corners. side turn indicator main beam dipped beam 300 m turn indicator Leading main beam. 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. position light and Daytime Running Light Auxiliary lamps 30 Also available as an accessory. See page 50. Bi-Xenon. Approach light. Equip the headlamps with Bi-Xenon to experience a new level of brightness. They also offer longer service life compared with regular halogen lamps. When approaching the truck at night, just push the button on the remote key fob. The interior and exterior light up, letting you easily find and safely enter your truck. Room for fog lights, along with static cornering lights or extra spotlights. 31 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. 32 33 specifications chassis 1 Tailoring your Volvo FH.

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 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).
