30 COMMERCIAL CARRIER JOURNAL | MAY 2015 V olvo Trucks' VNX 630 model – designed for high gross weight applications and heavy-haul tasks such as heavy equipment hauling, oil and gas delivery and timber transport – now is offered with a tridem rear axle group designed for added traction and increased payload. The tridem features three rear drive axles instead of two, resulting in an 8×6 configuration designed to manage up to a 69,000-pound rear axle load and help the tractor traverse steep terrain, mud, ice and other off-road conditions more easily. Equipped with the Volvo D16 engine delivering up to 600 horsepower and 2,050 lb.-ft. of torque, the VNX comes standard with the I-Shift automated manual trans- mission with integrated sensors engineered to identify truck load and road grade to place the truck in the right gear for the conditions, allowing for smoother optimal shifts, improved fuel efficiency and extended clutch life and service intervals. The VNX 630 features a mid-roof sleeper equipped with Volvo's ergonomic dash, added storage room and contemporary styling and trim levels ranging from vinyl for rugged applications to premium leather for added driver comfort. The Volvo VNX also provides safety features such as a sloped hood and large windshield for added visibility, a standard driver's side airbag and a cab constructed with high-strength steel. – Jason Cannon INCREASE UPTIME AND DECREASE MAINTENANCE COSTS.
