When mud or sand has swallowed the road, the only way to stay out of trouble is to keep moving. A driven front axle with Automatic Traction Control (ATC) and up to 300 millimetres of ground clearance make sure you can do just that. On Volvo FMX in 4×4, 6×6, 8×6 and 10×6 configuration – this feature automatically engages the front axle at the exact moment you need it – and disengages it when you don’t. There’s a whole range of options for your Volvo FMX to make life easier in rough terrain.
Brake your truck to a full stop and the Autohold function keeps it there until you request it to move. And it works regardless of whether you want to go forward, reverse, start downhill or uphill – or on flat ground.
The I-Shift function Terrain Brake lets you manage tough terrain at low speeds by controlling both the engine throttle and the wheel brakes using only the accelerator. You don’t have to touch the brake pedal, and you can stop your truck with a wheel positioned on top of a rock without slipping off.
