Up to 520hp of fuel-efficient power
VOLVO DIESEL ENGINES
Powerful. Torque-strong. And super efficient. Our world leading diesel engines boost productivity and improve your fuel-efficiency. They’re kinder to the environment, too.
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
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.
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.
