Volvo FH is the most massive saddle tractor not only in the CIS, but also to the near abroad. Since the beginning of the 1990s, when the new FH replaced the previous line of trucks, the company began to count the successful activities of the company, which worked with enviable constancy to improve its products.
It all started at the end of 1992, when the FH12 tractor was developed from the very beginning. He had a completely comfortable spacious salon, which was almost unchanged until the beginning of the 2000s. He met all safety and aerodynamics requirements. And there were no complaints about his comfort and ergonomics. A simple, even at that time, a 12 -liter engine with a classic computer was located under the cabin. A little later, the 16 liter modification of the same block for more than 450 horsepower appeared. Until 2000, there were several more significant improvements, among which an even more reliable and powerful gearbox and modern, at that time, Can-Bus, which allowed not only to keep the driver in the course of all the processes in the motor, but also to make as quickly and accurately adjustments On services.
Any serious customs representative will confirm that the priority selection of large carriers is FH. Mostly, new generation models that have appeared since 2000. The new cabins have even more streamlined design, they have become even more furious, thanks to a new design, specially designed optics and mirrors, allowing you to control not only the road, but also the cabs of the cab and semi -trailer.
From fresh developments-an automatic I-SHIFT gearbox, which allows to seriously increase the torque and unload the engine to comply with fresh environmental standards. Helps in this I-Roll, a system that turns off the fuel supply on protracted descents. Therefore, these cars can be found with a sticker on board S, which means that this is a particularly safe car (Greener and Safe Lorry).
At the moment, the sale of the third generation Volvo FH has begun, which we will consider in more detail a little later.
