The Volvo VNL



The standard for long-haul

The Volvo VNL is built to exceed your expectations. It has been pushing the boundaries for a quarter century and will continue to set the standards of excellence today and tomorrow.

Aerodynamic Design

The VN line was introduced in 1996 with a revolutionary aerodynamic shape to dramatically improve fuel efficiency. The low-profile hood and contoured features have influenced every other North American aero truck design since.
