Volvo Trucks North America announced it completed its transition from production of its legacy VNL 670 model to full production of the new VNL 760 designed for the longhaul market.

“Exceptional design, efficiency and productivity-boosting interior features make the VNL 760 a fitting successor to the VNL 670, which has been a mainstay in our on-highway lineup since its 2002 introduction and our highest-production volume model for North American fleets,” VTNA President Göran Nyberg said in a statement.

When combined with the efficiency benefits derived from the Volvo D13 Turbo Compound engine, the new VNL can help drivers achieve up to a 7.5% increase in fuel efficiency compared with a 2015 VNL model equipped with a 2014 D13 engine, according to the Greensboro, N.C.-based company.

VTNA is a unit of Volvo Group.
