VAH Features

Maximize Every Load

Reasons to love the VAH

We packed the VAH with innovative engineering solutions like Volvo Active Driver Assist, Remote Start, Volvo’s I-Shift automated manual transmission, and new LED lighting. These unique improvements to our auto-hauler will help you deliver your load with greater safety, efficiency, and comfort.

Volvo Active Driver Assist (VADA)

In the VAH, our collision-avoidance system integrates radar and automatic braking features. VADA monitors for hazards from highway speed down to 15 mph, with the ability to completely stop in emergency braking situations.

Remote Start

The optional Remote Start feature allows drivers to start or stop the engine from outside the cab, while the PTO is engaged, using a switch which can be mounted to the rear of the cab. It also includes an in-cab switch on the left side of the dash, which is accessible from the ground. Remote Start provides greater productivity and improved fuel savings.

New LED Lighting

The VAH features LED high/low beam headlights for greater visibility and a distinctive new daytime running light. Turn, marker, and parking lamps are all LED powered. The fully sealed headlamp component delivers a brighter, more focused beam. The new design offers more robust bulb life and even includes a de-icing feature for cold weather climates.

Unique Configuration, Maximum Profits

Deep-drop front axles, low-height Volvo Air Ride rear suspensions, and reduced height cab options all contribute to lower overall height, offering the flexibility to position a car, pickup, or minivan over the cab.

I-Shift

Our newest I-Shift makes every load more productive, using intelligent electronics to continuously monitor grade, speed, weight, and engine load, shifting when necessary or holding a gear—whichever saves more fuel.
