As driven, the tractor pulled a loaded flatbed and the rig scaled at a modest 77,780 pounds.

Introduced last year, Volvo’s VNX heavy haul tractor combines the frame and high stance of the vocational VHD with the highway comfort of the VNL. The cab is outfitted like a VN, so drivers are well housed for runs longer than what the VHD might be dispatched on.

The VNX is rated at up to 200,000 pounds GCW, but the one recently driven by Senior Editor Tom Berg was capped at 125,000 because of its transmission, the I-Shift automated mechanical, with which application engineers are being careful in approving.

The full road test article will appear in the June issue of Heavy Duty Trucking and will be posted on TruckingInfo.com shortly after.
