Volvo launches FH Unlimited Edition

Volvo Trucks has launched its FH Unlimited Edition tractor unit, which comes with a choice of three drivelines that optimise fuel economy, productivity and performance, or power.

The FH Unlimited Edition also comes with a luxury Globetrotter XL cab interior and a full range of active safety equipment.

Available as a 6×2 pusher or tag axle tractor unit, the FH Unlimited Edition has three driveline options available. For those looking for fuel economy, there is the Volvo FH 500 with I-Save, which has the latest generation turbo-compound engine and additional 300Nm of low down torque to boost journey times.

For maximum productivity and performance, fleets can opt for the Volvo FH 500 with I-Shift Dual Clutch, enabling seamless gear changes using sports car technology that is unique in the heavy truck market. For applications which demand a lot of shifting, this gearbox comes into its own.

Completing the line-up is the Volvo FH 540 – offering top-of-the-range power and torque from the FH range, combined with Volvo’s I-Shift transmission.

The FH Unlimited Edition is being offered in two colours: Clearcoat Baiguini Blue or Titan Silver Metallic, although fleets may select their own solid or metallic cab colour if preferred.

All vehicles come with chrome detailing, Alcoa Dura Bright alloy wheels, Conger Black premium chassis paint and Unlimited Edition cab graphics.

Inside the cab, drivers can enjoy premium black leather upholstery embossed with the Volvo iron-mark, a black leather steering wheel, black seats and black door panels. Other features include an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, 7” touchscreen, single bunk living package and a high level of standard equipment including under bunk fridge, microwave and television preparation.

All FH Unlimited Edition trucks include a range of active safety equipment. Key driver support systems include Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Warning and Advanced Emergency Brake, Volvo Dynamic Steering working in conjunction with Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Changing Support. All vehicles also get the Visibility Plus package, featuring rain sensing wipers, automatic switching Bi-Xenon headlights with washer jets, plus fog lights and static cornering lights.

In addition, all Volvo FH Unlimited Edition models come with Volvo’s Long Haul Fuel Package+, which comprises long-haul gear changing software with I-Roll and the latest generation I-See predictive cruise control.

John Comer, head of product management at Volvo Trucks UK, said: “With the Volvo FH Unlimited Edition we’re taking the very definition of premium to the next level, with a model where every single component and feature is designed to deliver productivity, performance, safety and driving pleasure.

“Plus we’re including a three year subscription to Volvo Connect, allowing operators to access driver, vehicle and position data in real time at the office, and manage efficiencies through the driver app. With this level of performance information at their fingertips, customers will be able to see in an instant the tweaks they need to make to secure a genuine improvement in profitability.”

Volvo Trucks will also be making a £1,000 donation to NHS Charities Together for every FH Unlimited Edition sold in the UK.

The FH Unlimited Edition range is available to order from dealers nationwide now.
