The Ultimate Test Drive: Volvo VN780 with I-SHIFT

Today’s Trucking presents The Ultimate Test Drive. You’ve seen and read dozens of our Test Drive stories, but you’ve never seen one like this. Ride along with seasoned journalist and 20-year driver, Jim Park, as he puts the trucks and equipment you’ll soon be driving through their paces.

Our premiere Ultimate Test Drive video features Volvo’s I-Shift transmission in an urban setting, with a special feature, The I-Shift Performance Challenge.

Today’s Trucking went to Greensboro, N.C. drive Volvo’s new fuel-saving feature XE13. While we were there, Jim decided to give I-Shift a run for its money.

“I’m really excited about The Ultimate Test Drive series,” Park says. “It’ll open up a whole new way of exploring a truck in a test drive setting. The I-Shift Performance Challenge is something we just couldn’t do in print.”

Watch for the XE13 video, plus many more to come from your favorite OE, as The Ultimate Test Drive takes to the street in the latest and greatest hardware this industry has to offer.
