Volvo Trucks will showcase the design and performance innovation of the new Volvo VNR series regional haul and Volvo VNL series long-haul tractors at the inaugural North American Commercial Vehicle Show Sept. 25 to 28 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Volvo’s booth (No. 2816) will be the first public exhibition of the new Volvo VNL series long-haul tractors. Volvo will debut the new interior for its VHD model, bringing on-highway driver comfort and productivity to the vocational market.

“This year has been a transformative time for us with the introduction of the new VNR and VNL series,” said Göran Nyberg, president, Volvo Trucks North America. “We’re eager to publicly share with many for the first time our unparalleled truck and powertrain innovations that will serve as our platform for the future.”

Most of the trucks on display at the Volvo booth feature an integrated powertrain with Volvo engines, including the new Volvo D13 Turbo Compound (D13 TC) engine, and a Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission.

All trucks on display equipped with Volvo engines feature Volvo Remote Diagnostics, which monitors critical fault codes, enabling proactive diagnostics and repair planning to maximize uptime. Volvo made Remote Diagnostics standard on all Volvo-powered trucks in 2013. Remote Diagnostics is a central component of Volvo Trucks Uptime Services, which also includes 24/7 live support from Volvo Action Service agents at Volvo’s Uptime Center, and ASIST, Volvo’s service management platform. Volvo’s factory-installed Remote Diagnostics hardware supports Remote Programming, allowing Volvo customers to perform over-the-air powertrain software and parameter updates to increase truck uptime and reduce downtime costs.

Volvo Trucks will display the following models at the 2017 North American Commercial Vehicle Show:
