Review Of Volvo Truck 670 - We would like to show you the 2014 Volvo 670. This truck is the most fuel efficient truck on the road. You can see the aerodynamic bumper with the wind shroud along the bottom that Volvo developed, also the extra fuel tank fairing as well as the side cab fairing to make the truck as close to the trailer as possible to reduce the wind drag. Also we have the fuel efficient mirror shrouds on the side mirrors as well as the brand new hood mirrors. Now we are going to talk about the drivers point of view. When you step up into the truck the first thing you will notice is that Volvo has engineered 3 solid points of entry with a grab handle in the front, grab handle at the back of the seat, plenty of step room for your feet, and the steering wheel is pushed completely away from the seat with no obstructions for the driver to get in or out of the vehicle with this design. Once you step up into the truck the first thing you will notice is that Volvo gives a panoramic front windshield with no obstructions to the mirrors, no center post mounts, to split windshield. The view to the windows and mirrors allows for a tremendous safety feature for the driver.
They can see their corners, they can see traffic with no obstructions. The dash is designed with safety in mind. No sharp corners or buttons to poke you. Nothing is going to hit your legs or knees in the event of a crash. There is plenty of room for the driver to make the turn to go back to the bunk without any gear shift levers in their way. This is a safe cab, an easy on the driver cab. It is meant for comfort and efficiency. The reason why this truck is the most fuel efficient truck on the road is the engine and transmission.
This is the Volvo XE Package. It is an award winning package that Volvo has developed to get optimum fuel economy. This truck has 425hp yet it has 1750 ft lbs of torque. The same torque as a 500 but you are only using 425hp. This truck going down the road at 65 mph turns 1100 rpm. It’s the slowest running engine out there. The engine is matted with the Volvo I Shift. The Volvo I Shift is the most advanced automated transmission on the road, yet it is the easiest to drive. You simply put it in drive and go. The computer does all the work. It is synced with the engine. They both know what they are doing at all times. Thanks for read Review Of Volvo Truck 670.
