Up to 500 hp of fuel-efficient power
VOLVO DIESEL ENGINES
Improved power and performance. Better fuel efficiency. And lower emissions. Our world-leading diesel engines deliver superior pulling power. And they’re kinder to the environment, too.
Built-in fuel efficiency – and environmental care
Increased compression ratio on the 420 and 460 engines. New optimised turbo on the 500 engine. Common-rail injection for all engines and fine-tuned software to give the best engine control: plus, lowered internal friction. Everything in order to optimise fuel-efficiency, and give improved engine torque and response at low rpm. This makes a difference to your bottom line. And to the environment.
Volvo Engine Brake: VEB and VEB+
Up to 510 hp of braking effect
Our patented engine brake, VEB+, uses a unique camshaft design to absorb up to 375 kW (510 hp) on the D13 engine. On the D11, the Volvo Engine Break (VEB) absorbs up to 290 kW. Coupled with our I-Shift transmission system and clever cruise control, you can maintain a high average speed, without compromising safety or fuel economy.
