XE Packages

EXCEPTIONAL EFFICIENCY THROUGH PROVEN DRIVETRAIN INTEGRATION.

The XE Package offers exceptional efficiency by combining Volvo Power with the revolutionary I-Shift, where all elements - engine, transmission, axle ratio and tire size - work together to combine optimum power with maximum efficiency. With this award-winning technology, each component always knows the demand placed on the other. This constant communication allows Volvo's I-Shift transmission to control the engine, rather than the other way around.


DOWNSPEEDING: THE KEY TO SAVING FUEL.

"Downspeeding" is Volvo's term for lowering engine rpm at a given vehicle speed to save fuel. The XE Package is designed to cruise comfortably in the engine's sweet spot, reducing friction and increasing fuel efficiency.


200RPM = 3% BETTER FUEL EFFICIENCY.

An XE package consistently operates in the sweet spot of 1050 to 1500 rpm, with the most efficient range typically between 1100 to 1200 rpm. For every 100 rpm of downspeeding, fuel efficiency can improve by approximately 1.5%. Because the XE Package downspeeds by 200 rpm or more, total fuel efficiency increases by 3% or greater. Savings are even more impressive for light loads or empty returns.


PROVEN SAVINGS.

Volvo XE packages can save you as much as 0.2 MPG or higher, yielding a savings of $2,000 or more, per year, per truck.


PROVEN ON NORTH AMERICA'S HIGHWAYS.

Whether you run regional bulk haulers or long haul LTL, Volvo Trucks offers you exceptional efficiency. The XE packages are optimized for speeds between 61 and 68 miles per hour but work well at all speeds. There are no highways where the XE package can't go.


PROVEN TECHNICAL INNOVATION.

The XE powertrain technology was named North American trucking industry's most significant technical innovation by the Truck Writers of North America.
