History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Volvo VN page on 22 July 2020, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Volvo VN (also known as the Volvo VNL) is a heavy duty truck produced by the Swedish vehicle manufacturer Volvo Trucks. Initially developed in North America, it was introduced in 1996 as the second generation Volvo Class 8 tractor. For the 2004 model year the third generation model was introduced with a revised hood, headlamps, fairings and interior, the VN was officially renamed as the VNL. Other models included the VNM (until 2017) and the VNR (from 2017).

It was the first Volvo commercial vehicle to be assembled in the United States after the discontinuation of the WhiteGMC brand (however Volvo didn't purchase the remainder of General Motors' interests in truck tractors until 1997, rechristening its U.S. truck division from Volvo GM to Volvo Trucks North America). It is currently available exclusively for the North American market.

On July 11, 2017, Volvo Trucks officially launched the 2018 VNL series at the event in Greensboro, North Carolina. On September 25, 2017, the display of the new 2018 VNL series to a public audience occurred at the 1st annual North American Commercial Vehicle Show held in Atlanta, Georgia.
