Volvo Trucks says the Bose Ride seat suspension system is now available as a factory-installed option on its VNM and VNL highway tractors.
Volvo Trucks is the first North American truck manufacturer to offer factory installation of the Bose Ride system. Beginning mid-summer, Volvo will also become the first manufacturer to offer Sears Seating’s new premier driver’s seat, the Atlas II, as a factory-installed option. Sears Seating’s value-oriented Sentry models will also be available as an option on Volvo VNM and VNL models.
The Bose Ride system, the company says, intelligently controls the motion of the driver’s seat to cancel harmful vibrations that can lead to pain and injury – during and after the drive. The system counteracts up to 90 percent of the vibrations that drivers feel from the road, making it similar to riding in a high-end passenger car.
The Atlas II by Sears Seating features new contemporary styling, improved seat extension and tilt and redesigned, intuitive controls. The driver’s seats can be customized from a variety of features, including heat, massage and swivel, and a wide range of colors in either cloth or leather fabric.
