Volvo Diesel engines with extremely wide torque range

Look at our curves

Excellent torque at low revs. An extremely wide max torque range. And peak torque meets peak power. Compare our torque curves and you’ll see the difference. Climb in the cab and you’ll feel it – incredible acceleration, unrivalled pulling power and a fuel-efficient, pleasurable ride at speed.

The fuel-efficient Volvo Diesel engines

Built-in fuel efficiency

The optimised combustion chamber geometry. The fast and precise EMS-controlled injection. The high gas-fill ratio. We could go on listing what makes our engines so fuel-efficient. What’s more important is the difference they make to you bottom line. And to the environment.

The patented engine brake VEB+ from Volvo

Volvo Engine Brake: VEB and VEB+

Our patented engine brake, VEB+, uses a unique camshaft design to absorb up to 375 kW (502 hp) on the D13. Coupled with our I-Shift transmission system and clever cruise control, steep and tricky descents are much safer and more fuel-efficient.
