Volvo adding air disc brakes to VN models

Updated Mar 27, 2013

New Volvo air disc brakes will make their debut on VN models later this year.

The company says Volvo’s new air disc brakes reduce stopping distances from 355 to 250 feet, adding the brakes also create smoother stops and reduced brake fading and provide a more comfortable ride.

Longer brake pad life is an additional benefit, resulting in lower maintenance costs.

Volvo air disc brakes will initially be available on all VN model front axles in August 2013 and will expand to include all axles in 2014.
