VOLVO DYNAMIC STEERING ON VOLVO FMX

Dynamic Steering during your day

With Volvo Dynamic Steering the vibrations and kicks that feedback through the steering wheel while driving on uneven road surfaces are eliminated. Reversing and close-quarter manoeuvring is also made easier – steering wheel resistance is reduced by up to 70% at low speeds. In addition, the steering wheel automatically self-centres as soon as your grip on the wheel lightens.

At higher speeds, the truck confidently maintains its direction even on poor surfaces and in strong side-winds. The technology works with your truck’s hydraulic power steering, assisted by an electronically regulated electric motor that continuously adjusts steering inputs and provides added turning force if and when you need it.

From day one, Volvo Dynamic Steering has provided perfect stability at high speeds, total control at low speeds and reduced the strain on your muscles. Now, it also helps you avoid skidding and unintentional lane changes, lets you set the steering wheel preferences and even offers remote steering control.

Take the load off

Uncompromising surfaces. Difficult manoeuvres. Challenging conditions. Construction driving can hit your body – and your productivity – hard. Volvo Dynamic Steering makes it effortless. It provides steering assistance and compensates for disturbances, so you can drive safer and smarter. And clock off less tired.  

The five differences you can feel

Smoother driving at high speed 
At high speeds, disturbances are cancelled and potholes swallowed, for a smoother ride with fewer kicks and jolts.

More power at low speed

85% additional steering force means you can sit back and steer a fully-loaded truck with just one finger.

Easier reversing

Reversing is stable, straight and effortless, and the steering wheel automatically returns to neutral when you let go.

Less sensitive to crosswinds 

Disturbances caused by crosswinds are greatly reduced, making driving more comfortable.  

Stability on banked roads

Volvo Dynamic Steering compensates for slanting, improving course stability on banked roads.  

How it works

We combined hydraulic steering with an electric motor that’s controlled 2,000 times per second. The resulting torque overlay gives you a powerful – and predictable – steering feel, whenever you need it.
