New Volvo FMX Truck Goes on Sale in September
text size: A- A+
Since it was built specifically for heavy duty construction activities, the Volvo FMX underwent tough testing prior to its launch, and the team was extremely pleased with how the new truck passed them.
"A quick glance at this truck and its powerful stance immediately reveals the close connection between Volvo Trucks and our sister-company, Volvo Construction Equipment - among the world leaders in dumpers, excavators and wheel-loaders," Staffan Jufors, President and CEO, Volvo Trucks, said in a release. "The new Volvo FMX literally breathes construction - reflecting its capabilities, inside and out."
Based on the FM platform, the new Volvo FMX will be available in a choice of two powertrains, namely the 11-litre engine (330 to 450 hp) or the 13-litre engine (380 to 500 hp). In addition, the truck will feature the updated construction version of the I-Shift gearbox, while a braking power of 375 kW at 2300 rpm is provided by the Volvo Engine Brake Plus.
"This is the perfect construction truck - and our customers have largely driven its development," added Jufors. "With all the improvements in the Volvo FMX, combined with the development of a strong service offering for the construction business, we hope that our existing customers will become even more satisfied. We also have high expectations that this new truck and our unique total offer for the construction segment will attract many new customers."
Pricing of the new Volvo FMX is scheduled to be released at a later date, prior to the market launch.
