Efficient power and performance
VOLVO D8K ENGINE
Our own Volvo D8K engine is a top performer in any situation. When tight manoeuvring is required, its fast response can be relied upon every time. It’s also powerful. Torque-strong. And efficient, too.
Now UP TO 350 HP
The D8K engine is now available with a 350 hp power rating and 1,400 Nm maximum torque. It extends the Volvo FE’s area of applications for demanding distribution, refuse and light construction transports. Single truck with two or three axles, with or without trailer – the Volvo FE has the power and torque needed.
Ready for alternative fuels
One truck model. Many fuels. The Volvo FE gives you the choice between several alternative fuels that fit your assignments. And help the environment.
All D8K engines can run on synthetic diesel – HVO (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils). And you can run the same truck on regular diesel fuel.
One variant of the D8K320 engine can run on pure biodiesel – RME (Rapeseed Oil Methyl Esters).
Cleaner, greener engines
Our Euro 6 engines are a huge leap towards cleaner transportation and reduced environmental impact. Power and fuel-efficiency are on par with Euro 5 models, but we’ve halved particulate emissions and reduced oxides of nitrogen by nearly 80%.
How it works
New engine components improve gas-flow and ensure the exhausts reach the after-treatment system at optimum temperature.
2. Seventh injector
A special diesel injector is used for heat management of the DOC and ensures the efficiency of the Diesel Particle Filter and good SCR functionality.
3. Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)
The DOC produces the NO2 necessary for the Diesel Particle Filter to efficiently combust the particulates. In cold conditions, it also provides the heat needed for regeneration.
4. Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
The filter collects and stores particulate matter (PM) until it’s burned off during regeneration. Regeneration happens automatically – you don’t need to take any action.
5. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)
In the mixing zone, the exhausts are sprayed with AdBlue. When they reach the catalyst, the nitrogen oxides (NO2) are efficiently transformed into harmless nitrogen gas and water.
6. Ammonia Slip Catalyst (ASC)
The last step before the tailpipe where the remaining ammonia (NH3), if any, is removed.
