Fuel-efficient. Torque-strong. Reliable. These are the characteristics of Volvo diesel engines. The range consists of:
- D13, 13-litre with 460 to 540 hp
- D16, 16-litre with 540 to 700 hp
The Volvo torque curve. You’ll feel it in the pedal.
Excellent torque at low revs. An extremely wide max torque range. Peak torque overlaps peak power in the mid rev range. Volvo’s leadership in diesel-engine technology is clearly visible once you start comparing engine curves. You’ll experience fast acceleration, excellent pulling power, comfortable low-speed handling and, last but not least, a fuel-efficient and pleasurable ride at cruising speed.
The vertical, centrally positioned unit injectors. The optimised combustion chamber geometry. The fast and precise EMS-controlled injection. The high gas-fill ratio. We could go on listing what makes Volvo engines hard to beat at fuel economy. Your bottom line will reap the benefits. So will the environment.
VEB+. Up to 578 hp of braking effect.
Minimise wear on the brake pedal. Volvo’s patented engine brake absorbs up to an impressive 375 kW (510 hp) on the D13 and up to 425 kW (578 hp) on the D16, thanks to the unique camshaft design with four rocker arms. Integrated with I-Shift and the cruise control, it lets you maintain a high average speed without compromising safety or fuel economy.
From 460 to 700 hp. Pick yours.
