A smooth comfortable ride, superior noise suppression and ergonomically-optimized seating are just a few of the premium VAH features designed to enhance driver productivity. The VAH series employs a unique configuration that reduces overall height to provide the ultimate in loading flexibility. Deep-drop front axles, low-height Volvo Air Ride rear suspensions and reduced-height cab options all contribute to lower overall height, offering the flexibility to position a car, pick-up or minivan over the truck’s cab. A clean top-of-frame behind the VAH cab expedites body mounting and eases trailer hookup.

As the premier car hauler dealership in North America, we sell more Volvo VAHs than any other dealership in the country, and can spec one to meet your exact needs.
