The Volvo Auto Hauler (VAH) 300, Volvo Trucks’ North American day cab, is now available for order at an unladen 94.5-inch height.
The lower overall height of the VAH 300 offers the flexibility to position a larger vehicle over the truck’s cab to maximize payload, Volvo says. A clean top-of-frame behind the cab also allows for easier body mounting and trailer hookup, the company adds.
In addition to this new model, Fontaine also modifies a full range of Volvo Trucks models for any auto hauling application or load size, including:
- VAH 300 (available as Fontaine model 94 or 97)
- VAH 400 (available as Fontaine model 97 or 102)
- VAH 600 (available as Fontaine model 97 or 102)
Consistent with the rest of the VAH family, the new, reduced-height VAH 300 model features deep-drop front axles and low-height Volvo Air Ride rear suspensions, the company says. The model is available with Volvo’s D11 and D13 engines. The D11 features 325 to 425 HP and 1250 to 1550 lb./ft. of torque, while the D13 features 405 to 500 HP and 1450 to 1850 lb./ft. of torque. The Volvo VAH 300 is also available with the Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission.
