If you're considering the 2015 Volvo VNL truck, with its impressive D13 12.8L engine, automatic I-shift, and new tires and brakes, then you might also want to take a look at these three rival vehicles:
2014 Freightliner Cascadia
This model is renowned for its durability and efficiency on the road. It's powered by a Detroit DD15 14.8L engine which offers similar horsepower to the Volvo VNL. The Cascadia also features an automated manual transmission system for smooth shifting and comes equipped with air brakes for reliable stopping power.
2016 Kenworth T680
The Kenworth T680 is known for its fuel efficiency and comfortable sleeper cab, making it ideal for long-haul trips. It's powered by a PACCAR MX-13 engine that provides comparable horsepower to the Volvo VNL's engine. Additionally, the T680 has an automated transmission system and features tandem axles like the VNL.
2015 Peterbilt 579
Peterbilt trucks are synonymous with quality and this model is no exception. The 579 comes with a Cummins ISX15 engine that delivers similar performance to the Volvo D13 engine in terms of horsepower range. It also boasts an Eaton Fuller automated transmission system for easy shifting and has air brakes for superior braking performance.
Each of these trucks can offer similar capabilities to the 2015 Volvo VNL truck you're considering but have their own unique strengths as well.
