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.

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.

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.

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.
Check the dash before you enter.
Make sure you locked the doors and
that the optional alarm is properly
activated. Should the alarm go off, you’re
immediately alerted.
Do your pre-trip inspection before you
get in. 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 a 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 optional My Truck software enabled.
Then just head away to the App Store and
download the app. Now all you need to
do is to connect your truck from the app.
It couldn’t be any simpler.
No need to be in the cab to activate the
parking heater. My Truck allows you to
start it instantly from anywhere. You can
also set it to start on a timer or schedule
weekly settings, so you’ll always arrive to
a perfect workplace temperature.

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.

I-SHIFT

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.

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.

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.

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.
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‑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.

sufficient engine torque to drive 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 panic braking 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.

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.

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
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. 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 and oil cooler.
