New Renault Trucks Range

Renault Trucks is taking advantage of the switch to the Euro 6 standard to totally renew its entire range including light, medium and heavy-duty trucks for distribution, construction and long-haulage. The presentation of the new Renault Trucks Euro 6 range on June 11 was the first time that any manufacturer has ever renewed its entire range at a single stroke. The Volvo Group has made an investment of approximately EUR 2 billion over five years in the project and Renault Trucks have carried out the most stringent testing program of its entire history.

Volvo Trucks has renewed its entire European truck range and launched Euro 6

Since September 2012, Volvo Trucks has launched five new truck models. It all began last year with the launch of the new Volvo FH, followed this year by the introduction of the new Volvo FM, Volvo FMX, Volvo FE and Volvo FL. All the new models include innovations and features that make the driver’s job easier and more efficient. Volvo Trucks has also introduced new trucks with Euro 6 engines ranging from the smallest medium-duty 5-liter engine to the heavy-duty 13-liter variant.
