The FH also has downhill cruise control, but also a speed and spacing regulator up to 0 km / h, useful especially in town. Finally, the FH offers five cab models.
Back on the outside of the truck, the major innovation remains the adaptive high beam: some of the twelve LED segments go out when a vehicle driving in front is detected. In addition, the look is more muscular and robust. The four new models proudly display a new iron mark, larger and thus more visible. The FH also sports a new grille and a new step-in.
