Volvo launches long-haul autohauler

VAH family shotAdding to its lineup of Volvo Autohauler models, Volvo Trucks North America has introduced the Volvo VAH 630, a premium sleeper version for long-haul operations. The VAH family, which Volvo Trucks launched in March 2011, already includes the VAH 200 day cab and the VAH 430, which features a 42-inch sleeper and full-size bunk.

The VAH 630, now available for order, features a 61-inch sleeper, offering a full-sized bunk, ample storage cabinet capacity and space for comfort and entertainment amenities. The model is available with either Volvo’s D11 or D13 engine; the D11 features 355 to 405 hp and 1,250 to 1,420 lb.-ft. of torque, while the D13 features 375 to 500 hp and 1,450 to 1,750 lb.-ft. of torque. The VAH 630 also is available with the Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission.

All VAH models incorporate deep-drop front axles, low-height Volvo Air Ride rear suspensions and reduced-height cab options provided by Fontaine Modification Co. designed to reduce overall height and provide optimal loading flexibility.

The lower overall height offers the flexibility to position a vehicle as large as a minivan over the truck’s cab to maximize payload. In addition, a clean top-of-frame behind the VAH cab is designed to help simplify body mounting and trailer hookup.

The VAH 630 model comes equipped with Remote Diagnostics, Volvo’s telematics-based proactive diagnostic and repair planning system. Remote Diagnostics has been standard on all Volvo-powered models since 2013. Volvo Action Service personnel at Volvo’s Uptime Center are available 24/7 to assist and communicate proactively with customers and dealers.
