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
Australia's operating conditions are demanding in many ways: the distances
are vast, the roads are challenging, the speed limits are high and the
payloads are heavy. The long distances mean that Australian drivers average
five nights a week in their trucks, which imposes high demands on in-cab
working conditions and after-work comfort.
Comprehensive tests of the new FH series were carried out in Australia from
the earliest development phase. Now however it was time for two highly
experienced motoring journalists to see how the new truck measures up on
Australian roads. The test vehicle was a 700 hp FH16 fitted with a
Globetrotter XL cab.
