Volvo's new FH16 Truck travels Downunder
The Volvo FH16, Volvo's new truck for heavy long-haul operations, has been
tested in the toughest of all environments: Australia. Over a period of two
days, it was put through its paces by journalists Brian Weatherley and
Steve Brooks, both of whom have many years of experience in the transport

are vast, the roads are challenging, the speed limits are high and the
payloads are heavy. The long distances mean that Australian drivers average
