Advanced connected vehicle technologies and fuel-efficient solutions will be featured in the Volvo Trucks booth at the Technology & Maintenance Council's (TMC) 2015 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition Feb. 16-19 at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

Volvo will showcase a Volvo VNM 200 model powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) and a diesel-powered Volvo VNL 630 model in booth No. 2622 during the show. The VNL 630 model, like all Volvo-powered models, comes standard with Volvo Remote Diagnostics, a telematics-based system that monitors critical fault codes, enabling proactive diagnostics and repair planning to maximize uptime.

With excellent visibility and a tight turning radius, the Volvo VNM 200 is ideal for regional or short-haul applications. Powered by clean-burning CNG fuel, the VNM 200 CNG features up to 20 percent lower greenhouse gas emissions than a comparable diesel-powered model. In addition, it requires no exhaust aftertreatment, eliminating weight and added complexity.

  • The Cummins Westport ISL G, featuring 320 horsepower, 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque;
  • The Allison 3000 HS Series six-speed automatic transmission;
  • The Volvo VF12 – 12,000 lb. front axle; and a
  • Meritor RS23-160 – 23,000 lb. rear axle.

The Volvo VNL 630 model is engineered for lighter weight and increased fuel efficiency, making it an ideal match for regional bulk haul and specialty applications. The VNL 630 model features Volvo's XE – eXceptional Efficiency – High Torque powertrain package, including the Volvo D13 engine and Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission to offer improved fuel efficiency benefits.

Featured in the Volvo VNL 630 are:

  • The Volvo D13 XE-High Torque featuring 455 horsepower, 1,750 lb.-ft. of torque;
