It looks tough because it is tough. The Volvo FMX is designed to help you get the job done. Minimum downtime. Minimal delays. Every detail there because it needs to be. Except the battle scars. We left those to you.
The more you use it the better it will look.
All the familiar Volvo FMX elements are there, just enhanced and improved. The bull bar is tougher and larger, as are the corner bumpers. The central towing device is made from cast iron and can pull up to 32 tonnes. And the new headlights are positioned higher up where they’re less likely to get damaged.
Notice the exposed fasteners on the corner bumpers and body panels. Not only do they add to the truck’s robust look, they mean you can quickly replace panels yourself. It’s all part of our philosophy of adding value to functionality – and reducing the amount of time you spend in the workshop.
The polypropylene coated steel bumper is built to withstand almost anything you can throw at it (or drive into). You’ve got a choice of two hardcore protectors for your powerful bi-xenon lights. And a 3 millimetre thick skid plate keeps the underbelly intact. So no matter the work, the Volvo FMX just keeps on going.
As a construction driver, you’re often in and out the cab. The low, foldable entry step makes that quicker, and its anti-skid design makes it safer. Slim mirror arms give you excellent forward vision, and the high air intake improves your reverse view. And don’t worry if mud sticks to your windscreen – just climb up the front of the cab to clean it. Every detail has been designed for the life you and the truck lead.

The front towing member is one piece of cast iron and the fact that it is exposed means, you can use it like a ladder to climb up the front. Wherever you step you’ll find it’s solid, nothing is going to break or crack.
Fixed footstep with improved anti-slip function secures the best possible grip in all weather conditions, for cleaning the windshield.
High illumination head lamps are provided in one unit. V-shaped ("V-light") day running light gives distinct look to the Cab. DRL are automatically turned on when the engine is running. When dipped beam is used, the DRL are automatically dimmed to form position lights.
