Volvo says its new VNL daycab gives customers a larger 123-in. bumper-to-back-of-cab (BBC) and is rated up to 80,000 GCWR, with a more robust spec than the natural-gas powered Volvo VNM daycab. Introduced in 2011, the VNM features a 113-in. BBC and is rated up to 66,000 lb.

Equipped with a 12-litre, 400-hp Cummins Westport ISX12 G engine that develops 1450 lb ft of torque, it requires only a three-way catalyst to meet EPA 2010 emissions standards, says Volvo.

Production will begin in conjunction with commercial availability of the 12-litre gas engine.
