Volvo VNX tridem model: 8x6 built for power, traction

Volvo Trucks’ Volvo VNX 630 model, designed for heavy-haul tasks like heavy equipment hauling, oil and gas delivery and timber transport, is now offered with a tridem rear axle group to provide maximum traction and an increased payload.

Customized to meet the demanding requirements of heavy-haul applications, the Volvo VNX 630 tridem features three rear drive axles instead of two, resulting in an 8x6 configuration that can easily manage up to a 69,000 lb. rear axle load, the company says. The extra traction capabilities of the tridem axle enable the VNX 630 tridem to easily traverse steep terrain, mud, ice and other off-road conditions.

Equipped with the Volvo D16 engine delivering up to 600 horsepower and 2,050 lb.-ft. torque, the VNX comes standard with the Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission. The I-Shift’s integrated sensors identify truck load and road grade to place the truck in the right gear for the conditions, allowing for smooth, optimum shifts, improved fuel efficiency and extended clutch life and service intervals.

The VNX 630 features a mid-roof sleeper equipped with Volvo’s ergonomic dash, ample storage room and contemporary styling and trim levels, ranging from vinyl for rugged applications to premium leather for ultimate driver comfort.
