The newly redesigned Volvo VNX is built specifically for the needs of your heavy-haul trucking operation. Now available with up to 605 hp and 2,050 lb-ft of torque, the VNX provides the power and performance that you demand for for heavy-haul applications such as logging, machinery transport and long combination vehicles. The VNX is the premier heavy-haul truck and comes in four base models with tons of available options to meet your operation’s needs.
Every feature of the VNX is designed to stand up to any heavy-haul job you throw at it. Improvements include the bumper, axles, suspension, braking, powertrain and more. Every detail has been refined to increase durability and ensure you’ve got the tools you need to move extreme loads.
The rugged VNX bumper features a heavy-duty tow pin and center tow frame that equalizes forces to the chassis. The tow beam is constructed of remarkably strong, 100 ksi steel. The bumper fascia is constructed from 0.25″ thick, high-strength alloy aluminum for reduced weight and is supported by welded internal bracing. The fascia features a tough, black polyester powder paint finish while all steel components are covered in urethane paint for extreme corrosion resistance.
Volvo VNX series steer axles are specifically designed for the demands of heavy-duty applications, with better control, easier handling and less maintenance. The 16,500-lb. to 20,000-lb. capacity axles are the perfect choice for heavy-duty king pin with a tapered design. The Volvo axle provides improved handling, control and stability, as well as enhanced bearing clearance. The smooth, firm ride is maintained even in tight wheel cuts. A newly designed steering arm allows up to a 40-degree wheel cut with wide-based tires.
The drive axle on the VNX is designed for heavy-duty hauling or on/off-road applications with ratings up to 55,000 lbs. The drive axle is ideally suited for heavy line haul, logging, mining and construction. A wide selection of axle ratios allows you to tailor the drive axle to specific load and terrain requirements.
The VNX’s premium heavy-duty suspension is rated up to 52,000 lbs. The suspension design increases durability, reliability and handling characteristics.
Volvo heavy-duty air disc brakes offer safety and performance in demanding long-haul and vocational applications. A twin piston caliper design gives the VNX more controlled braking and a shorter stopping distance. Volvo heavy-duty air disc brakes utilize a 17” rotor with high level corrosion resistant calipers, increasing reliability, while working in conjunction with a friction couple (pad/rotor) longevity.
The seating in the VNX has been ergonomically optimized, while the dashboard and steering wheel bring controls and information efficiently to the driver. And the latest VNX sleepers are loaded with amenities to make your drivers feel at home on the road.
At the heart of the new and improved instrument cluster is a color LCD display. A full five inches wide, it can be configured to provide trip information, performance data and a wide range of vehicle diagnostics.
Volvo integrates a wide selection of standard switches and gauges in every VNX. But because each application is unique, the VNX conveniently allocated space on the dash for you to customize an additional control cluster for your specific loads.
The VNX lineup now includes a full 70″ sleeper option, providing an efficient, yet spacious living area. Volvo is proud to offer the first integrated, reclining bunk in a sleeper. The bunks are broader and more stable, featuring pocketed spring mattresses surrounded by an extra layer of foam.
Softer, more consistent LED lighting creates a more peaceful environment and keeps power consumption low. When it’s time to rest, integrated window shades block light with one simple motion.
