Volvo FH Trucks For Sale

3 Average
Rating

The biggest of all trucks made by Volvo, the FH celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2013. However, the range has undergone several redesigns over the course of its relatively short history, both on the outside and underneath the bonnet. Today, the FH, both new and used, is available with 12 and 16 litre engines, giving them plenty of power to go with their extra payload capacity.

What’s most impressive about the Volvo FH is the size. They’re ideal for major jobs that involve crossing borders for delivery, while they’re seen as surprisingly easy to drive. The variety of cabs available makes them worth a second look, especially for businesses that routinely need to make regular large-scale deliveries. The range of tech available on board is pretty wide too.

Find out more about the Volvo FH and all its technical specs, not to mention the opinion of Trucklocator’s experts.

The first trucks with this engine were first introduced in early 2006.

The amazing launch of the new Volvo FH
 
 

Power and capacity are the name of the game with the Volvo FH. Today, buyers can get an FH with 550bhp or, if they need a little bit more, one with a whopping 660bhp, more than any other truck currently on the market. In terms of capacity, the biggest FH can hold well in excess of 20 tonnes, depending on what it’s being used for.

Gearbox options for the Volvo FH are as follows – 9-speed manual, 14-speed manual and the 12-speed I-Shift. If unsure of which one is best, the I-Shift gearbox is the best possible choice if you want an automatic gearbox. However, the others do have 14-speed range change and splitter versions with optional overdrive.2013 Model Volvo FH Euro 6

There are four cab types to choose from – Day, Sleeper, Globetrotter and the huge Globetrotter XL. The latter of the four is full-height and has enough room for a few riders, not to mention any luggage needed for a long trip.

Both the tractor units and rigids in the FH range are very popular in the UK. They have generally been well received, no matter how many changes have been made. As there have been so many alterations, there are plenty of used models available on the market.
