\"We are very proud to be able to offer two modern and safe trucks with unique bodybuilding solutions for this type of assignment. With the nimble Volvo FL and the robust Volvo FMX, we have a wide range of trucks with crew cabs,\" says Pernilla Sustovic, manager of the Distribution segment at Volvo Trucks. The new Volvo FL Crew Cab is intended for gross vehicle weights (GVW) of up to 16 tonnes. The cab offers space for up to seven people. A low entry and doors that open 90 degrees make it easy to get in and out. \"With the new Volvo FL Crew Cab we can offer far more scope for customer-tailored solutions straight from the factory. For instance, we have two engine alternatives, five and eight litres respectively, two alternative wheel dimensions and several different chassis heights,\" says Tobias Bergman, product manager for the Volvo FL and Volvo FE
The Volvo FMX Crew Cab is built for heavier and more demanding assignments and is a robust and powerful truck that can get just about anywhere. The Volvo FMX Crew Cab is available in 4x2 and all-wheel drive 4x4 configurations. The air-suspended cab takes six people, features an easy to clean interior and doors that open 90 degrees. \"We have also attached considerable importance to the design of small but vital details. For example, the rear footsteps on the Volvo FMX Crew Cab open out at an angle that makes it easier to quickly and safely exit the cab in operations where time is of the essence. The entry grab-handle is yellow so it is easy to see under all conditions, and the in-cab lighting is far improved,\" says Peter Hardin, product manager for the Volvo FM and Volvo FMX. Both the trucks have full-vehicle type approval in the EU and are factory-prepared for simple bodybuilding. 2015 will also see the introduction of versions for Euro 4, Euro 5 and Euro 3 (Volvo FMX).
