Video test drive: The new Volvo FM and FE

By: Matt Wood, Photography by: Walter Repich

Matt Wood tries out the updated Volvo FM and FE trucks as well as Volvo's new dynamic steering system.

Following up on the Australian release of the new FH last year, Volvo have shown off the updated version of the heavy rigid FE and the FM prime mover.

Matt also talks to Volvo Australia vice president Mitch Peden about the new Volvo Dynamic Steering (VDS) technology. VDS is a power steering unit that can make up to 2,000 adjustments per second to minimise the effort required by the driver to spin the wheel. Check out the video to see whether this optional unit is worth getting.
