Four-year-old rolls a new Volvo truck.

The truck has been given several new functions over the year and the objective of the test was to show how much it can tolerate and how easily it copes in the most demanding environments. “To show what the truck can do, we want to give it a real challenge. Well, the guys from Volvo had something else in mind when they released a clip with this Volvo FMX Truck going through hell and yet showing off how easy it can be driven. Sophie steers the truck on the construction area in the film, and the truck takes unpredicted ways: Among others, the truck ends up climbing a steep, soft slope, before rolling all the way down in a full 360-degree roll. Little Sophie Brown, the star of the video alongside Volvo’s truck, makes the vehicle worth around $163,000 and weighing “just“ 18 tonnes go through different dangerous stunts while playing with it.

The event is well choreographed and it does seem at times that maybe an adult also a remote control to “assist” Sophie, but Volvo said it was all about demonstrating the truck’s ability to cope with the most extreme environments. “To help it do so, it has functions such as the new, Automatic Traction Control, keeping it going even on severely sloping and soft surfaces. After a walk through some fireworks and a water course for the truck, Sophie will get distracted by a drone from behind her and manages to accidentally flip the car over.

They also demonstrate its total strength with an unbeatable cabin design with sturdy front corners and a reinforced sub-frame.” If the video convinced you, you can get your own FMX with the D11K engine (11-liter diesel with 330, 370, 410, 450 hp) or the D13K one (boasting on a13-liter capacity with 420, 460, 500, 540 hp).

Here you can write a commentary on the recording "Volvo test out their new truck by giving the controls to a four-year old girl".
