Volvo FMX torque

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.

Euro 6 engines

When it comes to Euro 6, no news is good news.

Lowering NOₓ emissions by almost 80% and reducing particulates by half is a tough challenge. Especially if you don’t want to compromise on engine performance. But we have succeeded. Our range of Euro 6 engines still offer the same driveability and reliability as our widely appreciated Euro 5 engines did. And the fuel economy is almost on par.

Engine fuel efficiency

Fuel-efficiency built-in.

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.

Volvo engine brake plus

VEB and VEB+.

Up to 375 hp of braking effect. Minimise wear on the brake pedal. Volvo’s patented engine brakes absorb up to an impressive 375 kW (510 hp) on the D13 and 290 kW on the D11. Integrated with I-Shift and the cruise control, it makes a descent into the gravel pit or mine comfortable, without compromising safety or fuel economy.

Volvo engine range

Up to 540 hp. Pick yours.

The engine range for Volvo FMX comprises eight different power ratings: four 11-litre (D11) and four 13-litre (D13). You can rest assured there’s always one that suits your transport operations.

Engine

A closed loop butterfly, a waste-gate turbo, a so-called uncooled EGR and more. The new engine components serve two main purposes: to improve gas-flow and make sure the exhausts reach the after-treatment system at optimum temperature.

7th injector

A special diesel injector is used for heat management of the DOC and ensures the efficiency of the DPF and good SCR functionality.

Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)

The DOC produces the NO₂ necessary for the DPF to efficiently combust the particulates. In cold conditions, it also provides the heat needed for regeneration.

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)

The filter collects particulate matter (PM) and stores it until it’s burned off during regeneration. The regeneration is done automatically and the driver doesn’t need to take any action.

Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)

In the mixing zone, the exhausts are sprayed with AdBlue. When they reach the catalyst, the nitrogen oxides (NOₓ) are efficiently transformed into harmless nitrogen gas and water.

Ammonia Slip Catalyst (ASC)

The last step before the tailpipe where the remaining ammonia (NH₃), if any, is removed.
