At 1500 rpm the standard I-VEB puts out an impressive 420 braking hp and a whopping 600 hp at 2200 rpm, an improvement by more than 20% over its predecessor. The I-VEB is controlled by a new brake stalk switch, allowing three engine-brake increments.
An oil drain interval of up to 35,000 miles with the low maintenance oil pan, which is an option in the VNL, helps to reduce operating costs. The D16 engine offers a dependable, fuel-efficient solution for heavy haul applications that require maximum muscle under the hood.
