- The German ATS retail edition features an image with a Volvo VNL in its packaging. (left lower corner)
- If you see the steering wheel, It was similar to 2009 FH16 model. However, the latest 2019 variant has a steering wheel that is very close in resemblance to the 2012 FH16.
- This is the first truck in ATS to be made by a company based beyond the United States, as Volvo is a Swedish company.
