You’ll forget you’re driving a truck
The suspension in the Volvo FM has been re-engineered to match the handling performance of the Volvo FH. Course stability and steering control are noticeably improved. Engine vibration is reduced.
The entire suspension has been revised and fine-tuned. Everything’s been replaced, upgraded or enhanced to improve the handling.

Steady as a train
Redesigning the geometry of the front leaf suspension reduces roll forces and dramatically improves steering stability, giving you an enhanced feeling of control in any situation. The improved front suspension also reduces the amount of course correction required – so the truck follows your lead on the motorway and around tightest bends.
We’ve transformed the rear air suspension, too. The Volvo-patented design features stabilisers in front of the axle that prevent unwanted road forces transferring to the frame. The design also stops forces from the trailer causing the truck to oversteer when entering a bend.
