Volvo Used Trucks - vehicle preparation
When buying a used truck of any kind the main considerations must always be the maintenance history, preparation and the warranty. Nearly all of our stock comes from our own contract hire portfolio, which means they’ve been maintained by Volvo from new. If you add to this the comprehensive pre-sale preparation that we do then you can be comfortable in the knowledge that the truck you’re buying is ready for work and covered for a long time by the manufacturer.
A new record score set by fuel test winner Volvo FH with I-Save
The Volvo FH with I-Save didn’t just win truck magazine Commercial Motor’s gruelling Fuel Test – it crushed all previous records. Watch as the champion truck takes on challenges that include 20 per cent elevations, sharp turns, tough road conditions and a 44-tonne load.
High performance and low climate impact. The technology behind the LNG driveline
The LNG driveline builds on proven diesel technology. When running, the liquid gas carried in the tank is heated and turned into compressed gas. Before it is injected, a very small amount of diesel is added to the engine to ignite the gas. The result is a driveline which combines high performance and low climate impact, making it unique on the market.
How the new D13TC engine cuts fuel consumption while increasing power
At the core of the Volvo FH with I-Save is the new, state-of-the-art D13TC – Volvo Trucks’ most fuel-efficient long-haul engine to date. It features pistons with a patented wave-shaped interior that improve combustion and increase efficiency by guiding heat and energy to the centre of the cylinders. Excess energy in the exhaust gases is then used to power the engine through an additional turbine in the exhaust flow.
