As part of the VNL 25th anniversary celebration, all Volvo VNL models coming off the production line in 2021 will have commemorative badges affixed to the exterior door panels.

For 25 years, the Volvo VNL has been assembled in the U.S. at the company’s New River Valley manufacturing plant in Virginia, and is the company’s most popular truck model.

Today, every Volvo VNL model is equipped with comprehensive diagnostics information, the company says, along with real-time, in-house 24/7 support from the Volvo Trucks Uptime Center in Greensboro, North Carolina. Volvo Trucks’ next-generation D13 Turbo Compound (D13TC) engine, first launched in the Volvo VNL in 2019, was made standard in the Volvo VNL 740, 760 and 860 models in 2021.
