Volvo D11 Powertrain

Overview

LIGHTWEIGHT, HEAVY-DUTY PERFORMANCE.

It costs a lot less to run a D11 engine these days. With Volvo’s new 2014 GHG-certified (Greenhouse Gas) D11 engine, you’ll see a fuel efficiency increase of up to 2%. How did we do it?

  • Compression ratio increase to 17.0:1 for increased efficiency.
  • New piston, liner and oil scraper ring for reduced internal engine friction.
  • New 7-hole injector optimizes fuel atomization.
  • Clutched air compressor runs when it needs to reducing engine load. You demanded more value. Volvo’s new 2014 D11 delivers.
The Volvo D11 is a fuel efficient, lightweight engine designed to improve reliability and minimize cost of operation.

Five power ratings are available in the range from 355 to 405 hp. The engine provides impressive performance with excellent low-end torque for improved drivability. The new variable geometry turbo also makes the engine very responsive while improving fuel economy.

A 385 Eco-torque rating provides a “dual-personality” torque level for the regional highway carrier to provide the performance of a 1450 lb-ft engine, when needed with, the fuel economy of a 1250 lb-ft torque engine.

The Volvo D11 is sold in VN Daycabs, VAH auto haulers and VHDs making it the perfect choice for regional operations.

The engine delivers competitive performance compared to larger displacement engines with an impressive 405 hp and 1,550 lbs.ft. of torque, and provides lighter solution for maximizing fuel economy in regional, less than truckload (LTL) and distribution situations.

At 1500 rpm the optional I-VEB puts out an impressive 270 braking hp, with 440 braking hp at 2200 rpm, dwarfing many bigger engines' brake performance. 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 helps to reduce operating costs. The Volvo D11 engine delivers a dependable, cost-effective solution -- for a wide variety of short haul applications.
