The FH16 550 is part of Volvo’s most powerful lineup. In its tractor head form, this particular FH16 allows for the use of a trailer that can be used to haul containers and all sorts of cargo for varying industries. Optimized for demanding tasks, the FH16 550 features Volvo’s 16.1-liter engine that can take on some of the heaviest cargo you can throw at it.
Volvo claims that the FH16 can haul from 18 up to 20 tons of freight. To help along with its handling, Volvo equipped it with its Dynamic Steering which is also available on other trucks with dual front axles. This system helps the driver pilot the truck with ease, and GRAS-G2 air suspension is a new feature now available on the FH16.
Powered by the same 16.1-liter 6-cylinder turbodiesel motor native to the FH16 range called the D16, the model makes up to 550 hp and 2,500 Nm of torque. As for its transmission, it uses the Volvo I-Shift system that comes with a myriad of software packages available from Volvo. A manual transmission option is also available from Volvo for the truck.
As for its cab, the FH16 650 comes in a standard sleeper cab, which Volvo calls one of the safest and most comfortable workplaces in the industry. The cabin features a light and airy atmosphere that offers a lot of space, loads of room, and a full serving of refinement. Being a sleeper cab, it features a wide and comfortable bed along with a fully-adjustable and ergonomic seat. Air conditioning is handled by Volvo’s electronic climate control system, with a multitude of sensors that purify the air in the cabin. The FH16’s infotainment system is a touchscreen unit that has navigation features as well as Volvo’s Dynafleet OnBoard.
