2023 Volvo VNL 860 - A True Beauty

2023 Volvo VNL 860 - A True Beauty

Since Volvo entered the U.S. truck market in 1959, the company has earned a sterling reputation for quality, durability, and safety. The new 2023 Volvo VNL 860 carries on the company’s tradition and builds upon it with a captivating design and modern features. Our team at Distance Trucking enthusiastically welcomes this spectacular vehicle and its potential to add value to our long-haul fleet.


The 2023 Volvo VNL 860 is a long-haul truck with a 77” sleeper cab that provides plenty of space for drivers to rest and recharge between the legs of their journey. It measures 190.4” from the bumper to the back of the cab and 89.4” over the cab.

Fuel Efficiency

The Volvo D13TC (Turbo Compounding) engine delivers up to 500 horsepower while using up to 6% less fuel than the D13. It adjusts the torque as needed to boost performance.

For extra fuel efficiency, the XCEED package will help drivers conserve every drop of fuel. It provides an engine and transmission tailored to minimize fuel consumption by up to 16%.


The 2023 Volvo VNL 860 shows off its style at a glance. Its aerodynamic shape with rounded edges reduces drag and promotes the image of your company or trucking fleet as sleek and dynamic. The improved aerodynamics of design elements in the chassis and cab optimize airflow under, around, and over the truck for a comfortable, fuel-efficient ride.

The ergonomic cabin makes it easier for Volvo VNL 860 drivers to reach controls when they need them, attend to the dashboard display without taking their eyes off the road, and sit comfortably on long drives. Dynamic steering adapts the response of the steering column depending on how fast your truck is going and other factors.


Many trucks on the market can deliver power. The extra features on the 2023 Volvo VNL 860 set this vehicle apart from the competition as a leader in safety and convenience.

Volvo Active Driver Assist (VADA)

The Volvo Active Driver Assist system became standard on all VNL trucks in 2017. VADA uses a combination of cameras and radar detectors to detect and track objects in the truck’s path. The VADA system keeps the truck at a safe following distance from other moving vehicles. It will warn the driver and eventually engage the brake if the truck approaches a non-moving object, person, or obstruction.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Drivers need to conserve mental energy on long trips to stay alert and drive safely. The 2023 Volvo VNL 860 includes an adaptive cruise control system that maintains an appropriate speed and works with the active driver assist system to protect the driver if an obstacle or other driver poses an unexpected hazard on the road.

An Electrical Outlet in the Upper Bunk

Make the most of your travel time by charging your laptop, phone, and other devices. Drivers can use an electric blanket or massager to relax aching muscles after a long day or night on the road.

Multimedia Information and Entertainment

The 2023 Volvo VNL 860 includes a high-quality audio system and a readable console display. Trucking can be a monotonous line of work when the route covers long, empty stretches of road. Volvo drivers can keep alert and engaged with music or keep informed with crisply presented news radio.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Connectivity

The 2023 Volvo VNL 860 allows users to connect to the internet, allowing the driver to stay connected using their laptop or smartphone while on the road. Access to the internet can be a vital lifeline in an emergency.


The 2023 Volvo VNL 860 sells for over $180,000, making it a substantial but worthwhile investment. You can expect a Volvo to last over 1,000,000 miles. Even if you drive it for 50,000 miles a year, above average mileage for the industry, your truck will be with you for a generation.

If you want to get the most out of your driving experience for the next twenty years, consider the Globetrotter package, an ensemble of futuristic features for 21st-century trucking. The Globetrotter provides a more comfortable cabin, adaptive cruise control, active driver assist, and other options.
