Volvo Vt Series Discontinued

Mack 3P

Recommended Posts

One of the key market segments for the VT series – high horsepower owner operators – has contracted rather than grown as we had expected. We’ve decided to focus our efforts on the VN series, our highest-volume offering, where we have the biggest impact in this market. Our VN line includes nine models that continue to be popular with owner-operators because of their performance, reliability, fuel economy, comfort, safety and resale value. Volvo also has an advantage in that – unlike some of our competitors – our 16L engine will be fully ready for EPA’10.

While no new orders for the VT series will be accepted, any trucks currently on order will be built at our New River Valley plant through Dec. 31, 2009. And as we do with all of our legacy products, VTNA and its dealers will continue to support the approximately 900 VT series trucks in service today.

This was a difficult decision, because the VT product line represented excellence in the heavy-haul trucking market – what Volvo is all about. Looking ahead, I’m confident that our VN series will fill the gap and allow us to continue serving a wide range of transportation needs in the North American market.
