Volvo: Camera and digital dashboard!

Interesting news about Volvo. We found news about the Federal Motor Safety Association (FMCSA) about the introduction of camera systems in stead of mirrors on www.cdllife.nl.

Special Volvo FM crewcab

Special Volvo FM crewcab

This Volvo FM crewcab was spotted by one of our friends during transport. This is probably going to be a heavy fire fighter truck, on its way to the bodybuilder. The double cab of the Volvo FM is not a common vehicle and we are curious if this is an official Volvo cab. And speaking…Continue Reading

The next Volvo FM?

Just a few days after the launch of the new Renault Trucks I found this on the web. It is the new Renault cab with a Volvo FM grille! I am convinced that it is a clever photoshop, but it does look good. Could it be that this is going to be the next Volvo…Continue Reading

It's a photoshop trick!

After the posting of the new FM of the Dutch company Wesseling I got some reactions about the photo. It seems that the Wesseling ordered the new FM’s, but they don’t even exist at the moment.

The interior has the same atmosphere as the FH, and it looks good! Volvo now offers the I-Shift with the traditional box on the seat or without…Continue Reading
