Not everyone knows how to read engine graphs. However, those who do are always impressed when they see the graphs for Volvo’s 13-litre engine. The engine characteristics are truly extraordinary. High torque from low revs – something that really pays off in rugged terrain. And maximum torque that remains on tap across a wide rev range does wonders for the truck’s driving properties.
Massive braking effect
As you know, however, there are as many descents as there are ascents. And they can be as difficult to handle. Volvo’s exhaust brake system (EBS) provides extra braking support to enhance the brake-lining life and ensures you don’t risk losing control of your truck on steep downhill gradients.
