Volvo FH16

A beauty on the surface. A beast under the hood.

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.

Volvo FH16 Bold. Confident. Assertive

Bold. Confident. Assertive

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.

Peerless Design

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.

Volvo FH16 Just drive

Just drive

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.


Up to 700 hp of fuel-efficient power

Powerful. Torque-strong. And super efficient. Our world leading diesel engines boost productivity and improve your fuel-efficiency. They’re also kinder to the environment, too.

Volvo FH16 Space and comfort for driving and living

Space and comfort for driving and living

Every component and every conceivable space has been meticulously designed to make you more comfortable – whether you’re behind the wheel, resting or sound asleep in the bunk.

A spacious cab

The upright A-pillars, low engine tunnel and high roof makes for a really spacious cab. And it is – even for tall drivers, the standing height is a whopping 220 centimetres.

Loads of room for your stuff

You can bring a lot in this cab. The spacious front, under-bunk, rear and exterior storage can be tailored to your exact needs. And there are plenty of clever compartments for smaller items, too.

A class-leading seat

The seat adjustment range is world class. You can move it 24 centimetres from front to back and 10 centimetres up or down. The shape also gives superior lateral support and provides improved support for those with longer legs.
