What if a trucker designed a truck?

“You used to have to choose between power and efficiency. We set out to fix that.” - Joel Morrow

Watch as driver Joel Morrow sees his new Volvo VNL with I-Torque for the first time and chats with Volvo’s Rob Simpson about what makes it the perfect balance of power and efficiency

Joel gets Radio Nemo host Tim Ridley out of the studio and behind the wheel to talk about life on the road, all while testing the VNL I-Torque’s fuel efficiency (even at 80 MPH on the Salt Flats)

Joel meets up with Al & Kym Hemmerson - a married couple with 6 million miles on the road - to talk about Al’s 47 years of driving and the comfort of the I-Shift before taking in the red rocks at one of Joel’s favorite stops

It’s time to toss the keys to Sharae Moore, a driver and founder of SHE Trucking; she and Joel discuss her efforts to help women and minorities in trucking before uphill testing the power and performance of the new Volvo VNL with I-Torque
