    You guys should be able to afford them, the kid just closed a terminal that had been in the same place for over 25 years... I guess he can buy him a new Mercedes now...

    The XE powertrain package.
    Cruise at 1,150 rpm and save up to 3% fuel.
    A torque-strong Volvo engine perfectly matched to an intelligent I-Shift overdrive transmission – that’s the base of the exceptionally efficient XE package. It’s fully integrated so you can cruise at 65 mph at a mere 1,150 rpm – 200 rpm lower than an average truck – helping you lower fuel costs as much as 3%. Available for Volvo’s 13- and 16-liter engines.

    Are you sure about these new tractors, they appear to run VNM's, not VNL's for day cabs unless they have changed. Don't they run 12 liter engines with low horsepower?

    Saw one of the newer trucks in Charlotte this week. It was a VNM with the 13L engine and a 12 speed overdrive automatic transmission. Driver said that it would run low rpms at 65mph while outpulling other equipment and he had heard we ordered another 360.

    The 2014 will be VNL a change from the 2013.

    Sounds like the truck I'm driving, 2014 13 ltr. 12 speed auto, pulls great.Smart shifts as in skips gears according to load size, like starts in 5th and hits every other gear until top out. 7.4mpg. I can out run a straight shift by 3 truck lengths in the mile, same weight. Only negative is it drops to 52 mph before downshifting but quickly gains speed.
