Video explaining the benefits of Stretch Brake

The Stretch Brake

When you’re turning or driving downhill on a slippery road, the Volvo FM’s new Stretch Brake kicks in to help prevent jack-knifing. It works by applying braking pulses to the trailer, which stretches the vehicle combination. You can choose to automatically activate the Stretch Brake in risky situations, at speeds up to 50 km/h. Stretch brake is available for both rigid trucks and tractors.

Driver Alert Support

Driver Alert Support is an intelligent system that tracks your driving behavior. If it differs from normal and indicates tiredness, you’re alerted by a signal and a message in the display, advising you to take a break.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Collision Warning

In traffic, radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control helps you keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front by controlling the accelerator and all available brakes. If there is a risk of collision, warning lights are projected on the windscreen.

Lane Changing Support

When activated, Lane Changing Support uses radar technology to scan the blind spot on your passenger side for other road users. If it’s not safe to change lanes, you’re alerted with a buzzer and a flashing icon next to the passenger mirror.

Electronic Stability Program

Our Electronic Stability Program (ESP) efficiently reduces the risk of skidding and rollovers. In risky situations it instantly steps in, reducing engine power and applying brakes to each wheel of the truck and trailer individually. ESP is now available for most truck specifications – both tractors and rigids.
