Volvo Trucks launch new FMX

Volvo Trucks is launching the rugged, new Volvo FMX. Built specifically for heavy construction tasks, this truck will be available on European markets in September, followed by a global rollout during the rest of the year.
“We are extremely proud of this truck and can hardly wait to see it at work for our construction customers,” says Staffan Jufors, President and CEO, Volvo Trucks. “With the new Volvo FMX, we are truly breaking new ground for us and our customers’ operations.”

Rugged look for a rugged truck

The most obvious change with the new, high-clearance Volvo FMX is its robust, modern exterior. With a new upper grill, aggressive lower front, 3-part steel bumper with 3 mm thick steel corners, rugged skid plate and protective bull bar, this is a tough construction truck. For additional functionality, the Volvo FMX also features a powerful tow hook, headlamp mesh protection, new anti-slip steps and a convenient ladder – just to name a few examples.

“A quick glance at this truck and its powerful stance immediately reveals the close connection between Volvo Trucks and our sister-company, Volvo Construction Equipment – among the world leaders in dumpers, excavators and wheel-loaders,” says Staffan Jufors. “The new Volvo FMX literally breathes construction – reflecting its capabilities, inside and out.”
