Designed for the heaviest and most demanding operations. The Volvo FH16 is our most powerful truck. Its distinctive design expresses the massive capabilities built into it, as well as its level of refinement. It is one of the safest and most comfortable workplaces in the industry.
Bold, sweeping lines and dynamic, aero-led curves give the Volvo FH16 its distinctive, purposeful stance. Redesigned from the ground up, yet unmistakably a Volvo, the truck’s design celebrates the driver. And drives profitability for your fleet.
The stance is solid and purposeful, with one thing in mind. Efficiency. The more aerodynamic the truck is, the more you'll get out of every drop of fuel. That’s why we've fine-tuned the cab design and spoilers. Making it all glide smoothly through the air. Saving fuel - and reducing the environmental impact.
FH16 XXL cab
*On the engine tunnel
The Volvo FH16 chassis is light, flexible – and it’s easy to customise and prep it for a superstructure. It gives you great handling, comfort and economy without compromising payload.
I-Shift makes driving easier, safer and more comfortable. There's no heavy clutch, and no stick to wrestle with. Every gear change is perfectly timed. The simplicity of the system reduces driver fatigue, helping you to focus on the road and the traffic around you. And if you do want to change gear manually, the button on the gearstick gives you direct control of the shift.
