Volvo VT 800 Day Cab

Description

The VT 800 Day Cab was built Sept. 4, 2006 and features a 16-liter Volvo D16 engine.

HISTORY OF THE VOLVO VT

The Volvo VT was a highway tractor introduced in the 2006 lineup with a Volvo D16 liter engine.  The model configurations included day cab and sleeper versions, and were designed with 2007 emissions standards in mind.

 The Volvo VT was designed to appeal to independent drivers by focusing on the buyer who desired a long hood, chromed air filters on the sides of the hood or cowl, and a large chrome bumper— all taking steps toward ensuring the model’s aerodynamics and visibility.

 By Dec. 31, 2009 Volvo  stopped production of the VT Series as the high horsepower owner operator segment had contracted, and fuel cost per gallon had escalated and the market preferred the more aerodynamic, fuel efficient Volvo VNL series.  Today, the new VNL 860 offers owner-operators and independent drivers the large cab they desire, as their truck is often a home away from home. The top-of-the-line Globetrotter XL package brings premier in-cab comforts to the VNL 860.
