    Volvo’s SuperTruck is part evolution, part revolution

    I read through the article. Pretty much a prototype where the engineers are given carte blanche ( what ever, I don't speak French:rolleyes:)
    Some features could be integrated into the next generation of truck. No one or company is going to pay 2 mill for a truck and Volvo would never produce it.

    I admire Volvo for their innovations. I hate Volvo because they pile all this technology in their products and it makes them buggy and expensive to repair and maintain.

    The technology isn't "validated" if it can't pull a grade without slowing down to a walking speed.

    11 liters? LMAO.

    20 hp is enough to cruise an average sized car along, but it ain't gonna accelerate in a reasonable amount of time and it certainly isn't going to climb any hills unless you gear it like a riding lawnmower.

    you can say that about all of these manufactures today they all put so much eletronic BS in what ever they make that the crap won't last 5 years and most of the time it looks like it's ready for the landfill as soon as it leaves the plant

    A lot of technology there that will end up in future trucks. !0 years ago folks were crying disc brakes will never be viable. ALl our new trucks have them and the guys love them.

    10 years ago no one was running 1300 rpms cruising at 65. We do it all the time.

    Technology is coming folks. Better hold on.

    as tazz stated alot of this tech will wind up in future trucks. i really don't see anything special about this truck to make it worth 2 million plus the engine and powertrain
