Volvo FL now comes with 4×4
The Volvo FL is now available in a four-wheel drive (4×4) version with exceptional get-you-there ability on slippery, steep and uneven roads.
The truck is ideal as a special purpose vehicle in both urban environments and more demanding conditions, or as a service truck for quarries and construction sites.
Does the job in all road conditions
With smooth external dimensions, high comfort and high torque, the Volvo FL is ideal for hectic urban traffic.
“With four-wheel drive and improved ground clearance, it drives equally effectively on pitted gravel paths as on asphalt roads.
“Many of our customers work in areas where weather and road conditions can change quickly. The Volvo FL with four-wheel drive is so versatile that it can perform tasks that might otherwise require an extra truck on challenging road surfaces,” says Pernilla Sustovic, segment manager for distribution at Volvo Trucks.
With a total weight of up to 16 tonnes, it has plenty of loading capacity and supports advanced equipment such as skylifts, cement mixers and cranes.
The distribution gearbox has a high gear and a low gear setting. The high gear is used during normal operation, and in challenging conditions the low gear can easily be engaged by pressing a button on the instrument panel.
The truck can also be equipped with an extra air nipple on the chassis for operating various accessories or inflating tyres.
The new Volvo FL with 4×4 is available with Euro 6 configuration, and will be sold in all EMEA markets where Euro 6 is mandatory.
