Powered for performance and efficiency

The D17 is the most powerful engine ever put in a Volvo truck. But it’s the fuel efficiency and the high torque that make the Volvo FH16 Aero the perfect match for demanding heavy transport assignments with high average speeds.

Up to 780 hp

The D17 is a 17-litre inline six-cylinder engine, with low weight and high efficiency. Choose between 600 hp, 700 hp and 780 hp. 

More efficiency and higher torque

The Volvo FH16 Aero engines all deliver more power, up to 3800 Nm of torque and more engine braking power at low engine speeds. This means you can tailor a smooth, powerful and efficient powertrain and potentially reduce your fuel costs.

Perfect gear changes with I-Shift

With I-Shift, every gear change is smooth and timed by the millisecond. It makes your driving comfortable and efficient. A choice of software packages lets you tailor your I-Shift for your heavy transport needs.

Volvo Dynamic Steering: a steady hand

Maneuvering heavy loads at low speed, precise and controlled? Like a steady hand, Volvo Dynamic Steering is there to make your driving easier. It also offers interaction with your driver support systems.

Features depicted may not be standard or available for all equipment levels and powertrain options.
