Volvo VAH Series

Get More Info

The VAH series employs a unique configuration that reduces overall height, allowing you to carry up to 11 vehicles per run. Deep-drop front axles, low-height Volvo Air Ride rear suspensions, and reduced-height cab options all allow for a lower the roofline, offering the flexibility to position a car, pickup, or minivan over the cab. Two lowered roof heights are available, partial (102.5 inches) and full (97.5 inches).

VAH 300

The VAH 300 daycab is the answer for auto hauling routes that are short on miles, but long on volume. The short BBC daycab configuration will make your drivers happy with a tighter turning radius, and keep your bottom-line healthy by carrying up to 11 vehicles per load.

VAH 400

The VAH 400 flatroof sleeper maintains maneuverability, but adds a 42-inch sleeper for a comfortable rest when you're on the road overnight. If your auto transport business stretches from multi-stop local delivery routes to full loads hauled region-wide, the VAH 400 is an ideal solution.

VAH 600

The VAH flatroof sleeper makes life more comfortable, productive, and safe with a 61-inch sleeper that delivers plenty of space for rest, meals and paperwork. When long haul distances and short deadlines require spending several nights on the road, the VAH 600 answers the call for a premium sleeper cab.


Purpose Built

Auto transport can be tough on equipment and drivers. So we began the Volvo VAH with many of the same heavy-duty features found in our off-road vocational vehicles. Everywhere you look on this vehicle you’ll find durable construction and improvements that help you deliver your load with greater safety, efficiency, and comfort.


Exterior Color Options

Work with your local dealer to customize a color to your liking. Choose your paint color from one of our solid, premium solid, metallic, or pearl options shown in this brochure.


We packed the VAH with innovative engineering solutions like Volvo Active Driver Assist, Remote Start, Volvo’s I-Shift automated manual transmission, and new LED lighting. These unique improvements to our auto-hauler will help you deliver your load with greater safety, efficiency, and comfort.

Volvo Active Driver Assist (VADA)

In the VAH, our collision-avoidance system integrates radar and automatic braking features. VADA monitors for hazards from highway speed down to 15 mph, with the ability to completely stop in emergency braking situations.

Remote Start

The optional Remote Start feature allows drivers to start or stop the engine from outside the cab, while the PTO is engaged, using a switch which can be mounted to the rear of the cab. It also includes an in-cab switch on the left side of the dash, which is accessible from the ground. Remote Start provides greater productivity and improved fuel savings.

New LED Lighting

The VAH features new LED headlights for greater visibility with distinctive daytime running lights. Turn, marker, and parking lamps are all LED powered. The fully-sealed headlamp component offers a brighter, more focused beam. The new design offers a longer life and even includes an optional heating feature for de-icing in cold weather.

Unique Configuration, Maximum Profits

Deep-drop front axles, low-height Volvo Air Ride rear suspensions, and reduced height cab options all contribute to lower overall height, offering the flexibility to position a car, pickup, or minivan over the cab.

Efficiency Runs In The Family

Volvo D11

The Volvo D11 is a fuel-efficient, lightweight engine designed to improve reliability and minimize cost of operation. The D11 delivers performance competitive with larger engines, beginning at 325 hp and up to an impressive 425 hp at 1,550 lb-ft. torque.

Volvo D13

The Volvo D13’s efficiency & power improve operating costs, while meeting 2017 GHG emissions standards. Twelve power ratings are available, from 405 to 500 hp. XE, Eco-Torque, and Dual-Torque ratings provide “dual-personality” torque output for customers who desire the fuel economy of lower torque with the strong performance of higher torque.

An automated manual transmission with digital intelligence


Our newest I-Shift makes every load more productive, using intelligent electronics to continuously monitor grade, speed, weight, and engine load, shifting when necessary or holding a gear—whichever saves more fuel. So regardless of experience, training, or application, I-Shift helps every driver become more fuel efficient.
