Up to 540 hp ofup to 540 hp of fuel-efficient power


The next step towards cleaner and more fuel-efficient engines. Several small advances results in a big improvement. Giving increased engine torque and response at low rpm on the D13 engine. As well as longer oil drain intervals on the D11 engine. This means less environmental impact.

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.

Built-in fuel efficiency – and environmental care

Common-rail injection for all engines and fine-tuned software to give the best engine control: plus, lowered internal friction. Everything in order to optimise fuel-efficiency, and give improved engine torque and response at low rpm. This makes a difference to your bottom line. And to the environment.

Volvo engine brake: VEB and VEB+

Our patented engine brake system, VEB and VEB+, uses a unique camshaft design to absorb up to 300 kW (402 hp) and 375 kW (502 hp) respectively on the D13 engine. Coupled with our manual or I-Shift transmission system, you can maintain a high average speed, without compromising safety or fuel economy.
