Volvo VNL now available for order at dealers across North America

Sales have officially started for the all-new Volvo VNL, a truck designed to change everything and set the new standard for the North American trucking industry in fuel efficiency, safety, sustainability, driver productivity, connectivity, and customer uptime, bringing unprecedented customer value to fleets and owner operators. Since the announcement of the all-new Volvo VNL in January, dealerships have been participating in extensive competency development, with e-learning and in-person instructor-led courses from Volvo Trucks Academy, to be fully trained to support customers even before the trucks begin to arrive at dealerships. Production will start later this summer with customer deliveries beginning later this year. Demo trucks will start arriving at dealerships in the late summer.

“The Volvo VNL has long been the flagship model series at Volvo Trucks North America and is the premier long-haul truck in the United States and Canada,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president, Volvo Trucks North America. “We wanted to set a new standard for fuel efficiency, safety, driver productivity, connectivity, and customer uptime and to transform everything about the future of the heavy-duty trucking industry. We’re confident we’ve done that. Our customers have expressed that they are eager to deploy them into their fleet, and we are excited to be opening the sales books to get those trucks slotted and ready for production.”

With cutting-edge technology and engineering, Volvo VNL is establishing a new benchmark in fuel efficiency, adding value to the customer bottom line economically and reducing emissions. Safety features include use of advanced proprietary systems to protect drivers, pedestrians, and cargo. Connectivity has been enhanced for drivers and fleet managers. Uptime is optimized through the Blue Service contract and connectivity-powered intelligent maintenance. 

To explore the all-new Volvo VNL features and trim levels in an interactive way, Volvo Trucks has developed a new, state-of-the-art online configurator for the Volvo VNL. The configurator provides detailed information on the features and benefits of each trim level and cab option, as well as a 360-degree view of the truck interior and exterior. The Volvo VNL is conveniently packaged into four exterior and interior trim levels — Core, Edge, Edge Black and Ultimate — with six cab configurations, each designed to fit customers’ preference, brand identity, and operational use. Three cab configurations – the VNL860, VNL840, and VNL300 – are available to order immediately, while the remaining configurations will follow soon after.

Volvo Trucks is holding immersive dealer and customer launch events throughout the summer at the Volvo Trucks Customer Center in Dublin, Virginia. The Volvo Trucks Customer Center includes a customer experience track, recently expanded to three miles, offering a fully immersive driving experience of the full range of Volvo trucks. 

Volvo Trucks has estimated total savings of more than $20,000 annually per truck with the all-new Volvo VNL, considering fuel efficiency gains, connectivity, safety, and driver retention. This calculation factors in reduced fuel costs attributed to fuel efficiency, as well as increased uptime and reduced maintenance costs due to extended service intervals and intelligent maintenance. L is a cornerstone of Volvo Trucks’ vision towards achieving zero emissions and zero accidents.
