Volvo Trucks has introduced the new “Xceed” fuel efficiency package for Volvo VNL 760 and VNL 860 models operating in dry van and refrigerated trailer operations. The new fuel efficiency package will be available for order beginning in January for 2020 model year trucks.

“The new Xceed fuel efficiency package is the most efficient package Volvo has ever offered for the VNL series, and it’s tailored for our large sleeper models operating with dry van and refrigerated trailers, which make up more than three-quarters of the trailers used in on-highway operations,” said Johan Agebrand, Volvo Trucks North America’s director of product marketing.

According to Volvo, the Xceed fuel efficiency package improves fuel efficiency by up to 11% when compared with Volvo’s Fuel Efficiency Plus specification, and is 3.5% more efficient than the Fuel Efficiency Advanced specification, which was Volvo’s most efficient offering prior to the introduction of Xceed.

“The Xceed package bundles our most efficient features to help simplify the truck spec’ing process and ensure critical components of the fuel efficiency equation aren’t overlooked,” said Allison Athey, Volvo Trucks North America’s product marketing manager. “The Xceed packages for our VNL 760 and VNL 860 represent a systems approach, building on our learnings from the SuperTruck projects and engineering expertise, to ensure we’re including important components that work together to help maximize efficiency.”

The Xceed package provides dedicated wheelbase options to ensure the optimal trailer gap of around 44 in. for dry van or refrigerated trailer applications. Lightweight components like a horizontal exhaust system, a dedicated rear axle, limited fuel tank configurations, lightweight fifth wheels, aluminum chassis components, and more help reduce the weight of the VNL models by up to 950 lbs., the company says.
