Volvo FH torque curve

The Volvo torque curve. You’ll feel it in the pedal.

Excellent torque at low revs. An extremely wide max torque range. Peak torque meets peak power. 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, not least, a fuel-efficient and pleasurable ride at cruising speed.


Engine fuel efficiency

Fuel-efficiency built-in.

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.
