GREENSBORO, N.C. — Volvo has added a VAH 630 premium sleeper tractor designed for long-haul transport to its auto-hauler line.

The new offering rounds out a line of auto-haulers that already include a VAH day cab and small sleeper model.

“We are pleased that we now have a solution specifically tailored to the long-haul segment of this highly specialized market,” said Göran Nyberg, president, Volvo Trucks North American Sales & Marketing. “As with other VAH models, the Volvo VAH 630 is designed to maximize payload capacity while still delivering the efficiency, driver productivity and uptime benefits that all customers expect from Volvo Trucks.”

The newest offering is available now for order. It features a 61-inch sleeper, offering a full-sized bunk, ample storage cabinet capacity and space.

It can be spec’ed with Volvo’s D11 or D13 engine with 355-500 hp and 1,250-1,750 lb.-ft. of torque.

A low ride height allows for optimal loading flexibility in auto-hauler applications, Volvo says. A vehicle as large as a minivan can be positioned over the trucks’ cab to maximize payload. The truck also boasts a clean top-of-frame behind the VAH cab to allow for easier body-mounting and trailer hook-up.
