Volvo Trucks Model VNR 660

Volvo Trucks North America recently introduced the new Volvo VNR 660 truck model, available for order in the first quarter of 2020. The VNR line of trucks is designed for regional-haul applications with specs related to length, weight and driver comfort.

“The new VNR 660 truck model addresses the needs of regional-haul customers looking for ways to increase payloads by decreasing the weight of the vehicle and enabling the use of longer trailer sizes without sacrificing efficiency. This new model also offers the comfort and extra space of a high-roof sleeper, increasing driver comfort.”
