Who says linehaul drivers deserve all the creature comforts?

Volvo has upgraded its VHD 300 daycab and VHD 400 regional sleeper interiors that include LED lighting, new seating options, and “connectivity points” to support daily work.

In the midst of the gauge cluster is a five-inch color driver information display for trip and diagnostic data, while a dash-top tray offers 12-volt power and USB connection. Another option comes in the form of Volvo’s new smart steering wheel attached to the Perfect Position air-assisted adjustable steering column. Those adjustments even allow the steering wheel to tilt relative to the column itself.

An optional infotainment system features a seven-inch color touchscreen, navigation information, and back-up camera.

All this can be seen from the different seating options which feature more seat travel and offer optional heating and ventilation. A refrigerated passenger seat even offers a cool spot for food and beverages when on the job site.
