Volvo Trucks will once again send a commemorative truck to Washington, D.C. as part of the Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom taking place during Memorial Day weekend. The Volvo VNL 670 pays tribute to the sacrifices of America’s military personnel. This year’s design was developed by Volvo Trucks’ New River Valley plant in Dublin, Va., in conjunction with UAW Local 2069’s Veteran Committee.
Volvo Trucks’ one-of-a-kind Volvo VHD pickup truck, adorned with commemorative badging, will also make the trip to Washington, D.C. in support of the Ride for Freedom.

The Volvo VN and VHD trucks are assembled in the United States at the New River Valley Plant in Dublin, Virginia, while Volvo engines for North America are assembled in Hagerstown, Maryland. Both plants are certified to ISO14001 environmental and ISO9001 quality standards.
