Mid-American Trucking Show is the largest truck show in the U.S. At this event drivers, fleet owners and trucking companies meet up for a few intensive days to inspire each other. Of course Volvo Trucks were also in place at the fair and visitors flocked around hybrid truck Mean Green. We also took a look at a really homely truck - who would not want to have a truck with its own shower and kitchen?

CRASHES 2013 Volvo FH
The driver of a new Volvo FH would emerge from an 80 km/h collision without
any serious injuries. And if the truck rolled over, there is an emergency
exit at hand. But not only the driver's safety has improved.
Thousands of simulated collision tests and about 100 real crash tests have
allowed Volvo Trucks' engineers to develop a safer truck cab. For instance,
high-strength materials such as dual-phase steel have been used in
collision-absorbing beams and in the doors. The cab too uses the strongest
steel available today for body panelling -- ultra-high-strength, thermoset,
press-moulded boron steel.

My '07 Volvo 780
This is the Volvo I had for a very short time, one run to be exact. It had
some serious damage to the top of the sleeper I hadn't noticed until I ran
into rain!! USX isn't getting any more Volvos unfortunately, they truly do
have more room and driver comforts than the Petes and Freightliners. These
Volvos had a 77" deep sleeper compared to the standard 60" on the
aforementioned two and cabinets galore. Although I did use the top bunk for
sleeping and left the table set up all the time, it was really hard to make
your bed standing on the ladder; especially when changing your sheets and
blanket. Also, I did miss all the under bunk storage I have in my
Freightliner, (There are small storage spaces under each booth seat.) Each
truck I've been in has unique likes and dislikes, it would be neat to take
all the good attributes form each truck and create an entirely new
truck....what would it be called?

All new Volvo FH16 750
The Volvo FH16 is now available with 750 hp and 3550 Nm to handle the
heaviest and most demanding transport assignments. It will reach the market
just in time to celebrate the 16-litre engine's 25th anniversary. 1987 saw
the introduction of the Volvo F16 with Volvo's first-ever 16-litre engine,
producing 470 hp. Since then, market needs have driven the development
towards increasingly powerful trucks.
2013 Volvo FH Series on the Road
With its new Volvo FH series, Volvo Trucks is pushing the envelope for what
a premium truck can offer. Fuel economy, reliability, ergonomics, superior
handling, active and passive safety, and time-saving features. The Volvo FH
is a truck built with the driver in mind and with the focus on improving
the haulage firm's profitability. There is no doubt that fuel economy is
one of the highest priorities for haulage firms today. So it was naturally
also in firm focus during the development of the new Volvo FH. The already
fuel-efficient Euro 5 driveline is now even more economical. At the same
time, Volvo's first Euro 6 engine sees the light of day, significantly
reducing emissions. Moreover, the new I-See function makes it possible to
cut fuel consumption still further -- by up to 5 percent. And in autumn
2013 a new driveline will be launched, Volvo I-Torque, setting a new
technological benchmark and delivering even lower fuel consumption and
further improved driveability: features that will benefit both haulage firm
