Volvo Diesel engines with excellent torque curves at low revs

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.

Lowered emissions, still fuel efficient

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 VEB engine brake with its unique camshaft design

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.
