Standard Features


When the going gets tough, the driving gets easy.

You told us what you wanted. And we listened. The result is the Volvo VHD-the finest vocational truck you can own. We looked at every part of the vocational business from your perspective. Then we built the toughest possible truck from the strongest components and made sure it was reliable and easy to service.

A spacious cab makes life more comfortable and productive for the driver, with extra room between seats and plenty of storage for personal gear. Superior insulation and soundproofing keeps the cab as quiet as most passenger cars, and doors are double sealed to keep out water, wind and noise. Working under bad conditions? Bring it on. Your VHD can handle it.

Standard Features

Business is Good Even When Conditions are Bad.
 Volvo VHD trucks are designed for non-stop reliability in extreme weather, rugged terrain, and cramped construction sites. They’ll get the job done safely and on schedule, and take your payload anywhere it needs to go. A full package of protective features and a quiet, spacious, comfortable cab help ensure the safety of all onboard.  
Maneuver in and out, Quickly and Safely.
 The VHD gives you a panoramic, one-piece windshield and sloped side windows. A wheel cut of up to 50 degrees helps deliver one of the tightest turning radiuses in the industry, and with Volvo’s responsive steering, the VHD handles beautifully in heavy traffic or heavy snow.  
 Designed to deliver the best ride under the worst conditions, the standard Volvo T-Ride suspension features trunnion-mounted springs and rubber towers for excellent traction and articulation in off-road conditions.  
When it Comes to Payload Capacity, Think Big.
 Volvo’s VHD trucks are stronger and lighter, trading chassis weight for valuable payload capacity. The High-Strength Steel cab and taller-profile frame rails dramatically increase payload. Optional aluminum intermediate cross members save more weight, and a choice of front axle positions ensures correct weight distribution for every application.  
More Comfort than Expected. But You’ll Get Used to it.
 VHD trucks offer extra room between seats and ample storage for gear. Superior insulation and soundproofing keep the cab quiet, and an advanced climate control system maintains comfortable cab temperature. Cab doors are double sealed to keep out water, wind, and noise. On the dash, a centrally positioned screen displays all your key diagnostic information.  
Working with a Body Builder? No Sweat.
 The VHD’s flexible design allows for quick body mounting and easy hookups. The easily accessible body builder junction box has connections for all signal lights. The battery box, air tanks, and fuel tanks are positioned far forward. Dump, refuse, or mixer hydraulics can be powered with engine or transmission PTO integrated into the chassis and dash-mountable switches.  
Power to Meet the Challenges of Business.
 From the comfort and convenience in the cab to the power under the hood, a VHD is simply a better way to make business more efficient and more profitable.
