I-Shift

I-Shift is Volvo’s gearbox with automated gearchanging for all applications. Well known for fast gear shifting, it both increases driver comfort and reduces fuel consumption. Can be fitted with a power take-off or emergency power steering pump. For certain applications, an extra transmission oil cooler is available. I-Shift is manouevred from a stalk behind the steering wheel.

I-Shift software packages for the Volvo FE

Basic (TP-BAS)
The basic software designed to suit most transport demands.

Distribution & Construction (TP-DICON)
Improving performance in more challenging conditions, for example tight manouevring.

Fuel Economy (TP-FUEC) Designed to optimise the driving for best fuel economy.

Manual gearboxes

The manual gearboxes are operated with servo assistance. The short gear lever, which is placed on the tunnel, is vibration-free and gear lever movement is short and crisp. The automatic transmission is operated via push-buttons. All gearboxes can be specified with a power take-off.
