Volvo Trucks. Driving Progress VOLVO FM PRODUCT GUIDE 2 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 maximum effect. 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 and with less effort. This is exactly what we designed the new V olvo 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. 3 OVERVIEW A closer look at the new V olvo FM. 20 CAB INTERIOR An ergonomic driving position, a roomy bed and plenty of new electronic features make sure you stay relaxed.

VIEW THE COMPLETE SPECS, FROM CHASSIS TO EXTRA EQUIPMENT, ON PAGES 40 – 57 26 5 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 a 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 greatly improved steering stability, since roll forces are efficienctly dampened. You’ll 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 suspension makes a truck behave like a boat, forcing the driver to constantly correct the course. The new Volvo FM is different. The truck simply follows your control both in a straight line and around tight bends. Keeping unwanted forces away. The rear air 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 bend. 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 must book a test drive and experience it for yourself. But if you want to learn more first, see page 16. 7 I-SEE Save fuel – even on roads you haven’t travelled on before. Lower fuel consumption by 5 %. Just activate the cruise control. Wherever you are, you can get help from the cloud. Combine I‑Shiftand 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‑Cruiseis engaged the whole time). I‑Seedoesn’t rely on maps. Since reality tends to be more accurate, it memorises the actual slopes instead. So now you don’t even have to have travelled the route before to save fuel. The new version of I‑Seestores all hills in a database free for all other Volvo trucks to use. As long as someone has travelled the route before, I‑Seecan download the data and start saving fuel immediately. ON THE CRESTS: STAYING CALM. When approaching the brow, I‑Seekeeps the truck from accelerating unnecessarily. BEFORE THE UPHILLS: TAKING OFF. When I‑Seeapproaches a hill it lets the speed increase, to gain momentum. To ensure the truck stays longer in the highest possible gear. 8 ON THE UPHILLS: KEEPING FROM DOWNSHIFTING. BEFORE THE DOWNHILL: ROLLING ON. When climbing, I‑Seeuses its stored knowledge to avoid unnecessary downshifts towards the top. You approach the crest smoothly without wasting fuel in a lower gear. Just before the downhill slope, the driveline temporarily disengages, allowing the truck to I-Roll. This uses the vehicle momentum thus saving energy. ON THE DOWNHILLS: BRAKING IN TIME. Ready for the next hill I-CRUISE I‑Seeknows when the gradient ends. Thus, when gaining speed downhill, it can apply the engine brake gently in time – to prepare for the upcoming topography. When a downhill is followed by an immediate uphill, I‑Seereally comes into its own. It lets the truck roll, gaining speed and momentum to climb uphill with less effort. One part of I‑Seeis 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. 9 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. When it comes to Euro-6, no news is good news. Lowering NOX emissions by 77 % and reducing particulates by half is a tough challenge. Especially if you don’t want to compromise on engine performance. But we have succeeded. Our range of Euro-6 engines still offer the same driveability and reliability as our widely appreciated Euro-5 engines did. And the fuel economy is on a par. Learn more about the technology on page 47. 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 good engine brake. That’s why the Volvo Engine Brake (VEB), available on the D11, is so widely appreciated. Plus, 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 INLINE SIX 6 cylinders. 7 bearings to distribute the forces. Reliability never goes out of style. EMS-CONTROLLED INJECTION Common rail on the D11 and unit injectors on the D13. Both with perfect timing thanks to the Engine Management System (EMS). FROM 330 TO 500 HP Volvo FM is available with a choice of four 11-litre and three 13-litre engines, with power ratings up to 500 hp. Details on page 46. CLOSED CRANKCASE VENTILATION Recycles the crankcase gases, for improved air quality around the vehicle. REAR TIMING MECHANISM A compact and weight-saving design, powering the air compressor along with the power steering, oil, and fuel feed pumps. NEW PTOS WITH CLUTCHES The range of engine-mounted power take-offs has been expanded to include three new declutchable ones. Learn more on page 50. 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 to great lengths to make things easy for the bodybuilder, because this not only saves time, but also improves quality by avoiding unnecessary and costly reconstruction work. Here’s some of the features that bodybuilders like most about Volvo. 12 Volvo Bodybuilder Instructions. Power take-offs for every need. Parallel Frames. Prior to even ordering your new Volvo FM, exact drawings of your own truck are available in the intuitive VBI online portal. The bodybuilder can then start work on the truck and help define the specification before any order is placed, which will dramatically shorten lead time and improve the overall quality of the complete truck. Our vast array of PTOs has been expanded even further, with a new range of energy saving clutchable engine driven PTOs. See page 50. Unlike most 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. 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. 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 now be factory cut exactly as you need it – in 50 mm increments – to perfectly match your super-structure. Regardless of whether you need an extremely short rear overhang or a longer one. Tailored exactly to your needs. 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 wheel bases. See pages 41–43. We can now deliver your FM from the factory with four different rear frame end cuts: upper (for tippers, hook-lifts and refuse trucks), lower (for centre-axle trailers), tapered (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 and overall height of the complete vehicle. 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 for maximum operational efficiency. Attachment brackets. Prepared for a crane. olvo FM can be factory prepared with V body attachment brackets, mounted on the frame. Now available, not only in the wheelbase area, but also in the rear overhang. A low chassis and high axle loads. That’s what’s on every crane builders wish-list. Volvo FM comes with both. What’s more, we can create a free frame space behind the cab, and even deliver your truck with factory-mounted crane plates. More reinforcements than ever before. 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 inner-liners 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‑Shiftmode, (adaptive) cruise control, auxiliary brakes and tachometer. 14 Secondary Information Display. To the left of the instrument cluster, you’ll find the home of ‘infotainment’ – an integrated display called the SID (Secondary Information Display) and which 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 between them. EXTERIOR VISION CAMERAS PHONE DYNAFLEET SID-High can show the input of up to four cameras in full resolution. Connects via Bluetooth so you can browse your phone book, talk using 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. The SID high is required if office to vehicle messaging is specified, along with a remote keyboard supplied in the cab. 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. GAUGES YOUR WAY 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 tells 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. How it works. Volvo Dynamic Steering consists of an electrical 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 2,000 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. Perhaps you have to 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. 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 self centres, reducing the strain even further. Furthermore, if you need to reverse over long distances, here’s something new. The course stability is so great that you now 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 get in it, to make sure it’s ready to drive when you are. 18 Always return to a comfortable climate. Keep it safe.

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 different trim levels: practical vinyl, textile or leather. The new, gently curved dash not only looks appealing. It’s designed for an ergonomic and comfortable driving position with all switches, instruments and storages within easy reach. Loads of storage options. All at your thumb tips. Advanced interior lighting. The roomy storage facilities at the front and under the bunk are accompanied by several handy compartments for smaller articles. There are also two new bedside storage pockets for magazines and other items. Buttons for cruise control, audio, phone and information displays, allow you to keep a tight grip on the wheel. With leather as an option, it’s a comfortable one. The energy-efficient and powerful light sources make for fantastic in-cab lighting. All are easily controlled in three pre-set steps or with the dimmer. When driving in the dark – switch to red lighting to preserve your night vision. ECC – Electronic Climate Control. Have a good night. Keeping the outside noise out. The optional electronic climate control makes sure you always have a comfortable climate in the cab. Just set your preferred temperature and with the new My Truck app, you can control the parking heater remotely to always return to a comfy cab. Learn more on page 18. Don’t compromise on sleep quality just because you spend your night in the cab. The lower bed is 70 cm wide, features 16 cm pocket springs and a choice of three different firmness levels. Volvo cabs are famous for being well insulated. The new Volvo FM is no exception. And thanks to new engine mountings, less vibrations reach the cab. Altogether reducing the stress on your ears. Electric parking brake. Electronic remote key. 28° Leading steering wheel adjustment. The steering wheel can be adjusted 90 mm vertically and tilted 28 degrees, allowing you to find your perfect driving position. Conveniently controlled by a foot pedal, it folds away easily when you enter or exit the cab. The electrically-controlled parking brake controlled by an easy-access dashboard lever. Automatically engages at key-off, and – with a little help from EBS – automatically releases when pulling away when the I-Shift gearbox is specified. Keeping your eyes on the road. Room for alcolock. With the new, intuitive instrument cluster comes plenty of new high-end features. All making it easier to focus on what’s important. Learn more on page 14. Alcohol doesn’t belong in traffic, which is why the alcolock does. Factory fit it to your V olvo FM and send a clear message to your customers how seriously you take road safety. Also available as an accessory. It’s more than a key. Lock or unlock from a distance. Turn on the lights to approach the cab safely. And, if you’re feeling threatened, just push the panic button to blast the horn. 23 HEADLIGHTS The future ahead looks bright. So do the curves and corners. 300 m 24 Leading main beam. Dynamic headlights. Static cornering lights. The headlights produce a powerful beam, providing you with an early view of what is happening down the road. And, just as importantly, other road users will see you stand out in the dark. First introduced on the new Volvo FH – now available for the Volvo FM. It allows the dipped beam to follow the road. Whenever you turn so do the lights, 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 aid. As soon as you activate the indicator, the immediate area on the side lights up, helping you spot unprotected road users. Approach light. Bi‑Xenon. 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. Equip the headlamps with Bi‑Xenonto experience a new level of brightness. They also offer longer service life compared with regular halogen lamps. Also available as an accessory. SIDE INDICATOR MAIN BEAM DIPPED BEAM INDICATOR POSITION LIGHT AND DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT AUXILIARY LAMPS Room for fog lights, along with static cornering lights or extra spotlights. 25 I-SHIFT Forget the gearbox. Just drive. 26 Eases your mind. And lets your left foot rest. An unexpected option. I‑Shiftwithout gearstick. Let I‑Shiftsave you fuel. The money will roll right in. Driving with I-Shift is a real pleasure. Without the clutch pedal, you can safely sit back and concentrate on the road. 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 almost impossible for even the best of drivers to match. Still, if you want to get more involved, you can. The lever on the shift selector or the new dash mounted switch control allow you to step in and hold a 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 also makes it a little bit easier to move around the cab. I‑Shiftis 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 gear change is timed precisely, to let the engine work at its most efficient rpm range. And then there’s I‑Roll – a feature used when driving downhill, which automatically disengages 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. How would you like your I‑Shift? The software makes it possible to tailor I‑Shiftto your driving conditions. Choose from four available packages: ‘Long Haul & Fuel Economy’ (with or without I‑See) for efficient highway driving, ‘Distribution & Construction’ with smart functions for close-quarter manoeuvring or ‘Heavy Duty Transport’ optimising I‑Shiftfor 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 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‑Shiftthan that. The secret lies in the intelligent electronic control unit. It’s responsible for controlling the pneumatic system that handles the clutch and gear changes. By constantly receiving information about vehicle speed, acceleration, weight, road incline, torque demand and more, it can carry out every gear change with extreme precision. It also communicates closely with the engine, which in turn adjusts revs and engine brake effect for fast and comfortable changes. Also available as an accessory. FIND ALL GEARBOXES, I-SHIFT AND MANUAL, ON PAGES 48–49 27 UPTIME Stay on the road by staying online. Our promise: 100 % uptime. No truck is more costly than one that’s standing still. With the new Gold contract, we promise an uptime of no less than 100 %. This means your truck will always be available when you need it. 28 New Service Planning. One step ahead. Features Online. Your wireless technician. Thanks to the telematics gateway, the workshop can access information such as engine data, mileage, fuel consumption, diagnostic fault 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 more importantly, we’re always perfectly prepared when you do visit 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 remotely. All you have to do is stop at the roadside for a short while. Service has never been quicker. New Volvo Gold Contract. The all-inclusive uptime package. To keep your truck on the road making money, there’s the new Volvo Gold Contract – the ultimate service package that includes both service and repairs and preventive maintenance. And it includes New Service Planning and Features Online, two truly ground-breaking service features made possible by the new TGW (Telematics Gateway). The bottom line? An uptime promise of 100 %. Need help? Just push the button. An unplanned stop out in the middle of nowhere? Volvo Action Service is now 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 fault codes. 29 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 V olvo 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 aerials on the Volvo FM can all be moved out of the way. The WLAN aerials can be moved to the front shelf, the phone aerials to the dashboard and the toll collect, FM, CB radio and Dynafleet aerials can be fitted to the side of the cab. 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). Add to that a door that opens a full 90 degrees and conveniently positioned grab handles, and you have a cab you comfortably enter and exit many times a day without strain. 30 HOW IT ALL ADDS UP Cab1807 mm Frame266 mm Suspension107 mm 355/50 tyres (laden) 435 mm 2615 mm 31 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. 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. Gross vehicle weight, axle loads and bogie loads are all shown 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 even have the same icons as the relevant dash mounted switch. Yes, it is a bit bigger than the regular key fob, but still ... It’s very 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 program and then conveniently raise and lower the tail lift too. WORK REMOTE 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 rails, 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 –120 extra litres of fuel. But that’s not all. It can also be installed at the rear on airsuspended tractors. This corresponds to an additional 300 litres of fuel space now available on the side of the vehicle. 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 up space on the side of the chassis. 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 packaged our most efficient fuel-saving options into two packages. One of them adds features to the truck itself and 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.

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‑Seeuses pre-recorded data about the topography of the road to lower fuel consumption. It controls gear changes and speed to make maximum use of the truck’s momentum, leading to substantial fuel-savings. Read more about I‑Seeon page 8. CLUTCHABLE AIR COMPRESSOR. NO UNNECESSARY PRESSURE. The air compressor is automatically declutched when not needed, leading to lower fuel consumption. 37 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 situation. 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 30 mph. 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 indicator. 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 or 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. 38 Also available as an accessory. Follow the traffic rhythm without effort. The radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) keeps a safe distance from the vehicle in front by controlling the accelerator and all available brakes. If there’s a risk of collision, warning lights are projected onto the windscreen. 39 SPECIFICATIONS Tailoring your Volvo FM. No single truck fits all. That’s why the Volvo FM 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 will happily guide you in finding the perfect truck for your needs and wants. 1 2 3 4 5 40 CHASSIS Axle configurations, chassis heights, wheelbases, bogies, rear suspensions and brakes.

DRIVELINE 2 OUR SOLUTION FOR EURO 6 7th injector Mixing zone AdBlue Mixing zone ENGINE DOC SCR DPF ASC ENGINE DIESEL OXIDATION CATALYST (DOC) SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION (SCR) A closed loop butterfly exhaust brake, a waste-gate turbo, a so-called uncooled EGR and more. The new engine components serve two main purposes: to improve gas-flow and make sure the exhaust reaches the aftertreatment system at optimum temperature. The DOC produces the NO2 necessary for the DPF to efficiently combust the particulates. In cold conditions, it also provides the heat needed for regeneration. In the mixing zone, the exhausts are sprayed with AdBlue. When they reach the catalyst, the oxides of nitrogen (NO X) are efficiently transformed into harmless nitrogen gas and water. DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER (DPF) The filter collects particulate matter (PM) and stores it until it’s burned off during regeneration. The regeneration is done automatically and the driver doesn’t need to take any action. 7TH INJECTOR A special diesel injector is used for heat management of the DOC and ensures the efficiency of the DPF and good SCR functionality. AMMONIA SLIP CATALYST (ASC) The last step before the tailpipe where the remaining ammonia (NH 3), if any, is removed.

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 ENHANCED PTO FUNCTIONS ENHANCED GEAR SELECTION 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. 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. 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. 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 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 topo graphy 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. HEAVY DUTY GCW CONTROL Optimises gear selection for high gross combination weights, 85–180 tonnes. MANUAL GEARBOXES 14-speed splitter and range manual gearbox.
