Volvo donates brand new VNL to America’s Road Team

After announcing last year Volvo Trucks North America would extend its now-16-year sponsorship of the American Trucking Associations’ America’s Road Team outreach program, the truck maker delivered a new Volvo VNL 760 to ATA officials and America’s Road Team captains at a ceremony in Newport, R.I., this week.

The four America’s Road Team captain drivers at the ceremony have a combined 117 years of driving experience and 11.5 million accident-free miles.

In addition to the standard active safety technologies, the fully spec’d VNL 760 tractor is equipped with a Volvo D13 engine and I-Shift 12-speed automated manual transmission as well as remote diagnostics and remote programming.
