Extended engine output range for the Volvo FE.

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. 

The D5K and D8K engines are ready for alternative fuels

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).

A wide and flat torque curve characterise the Volvo FE engine


Excellent torque at low revs. Great response and up to 1,400 Nm maximum torque. Compare our torque curves and you’ll see the difference. Climb in the cab and you’ll feel it – incredible acceleration, excellent low speed handling and firstclass pulling power.

Power take-offs for your load-handling equipment

Power take-offs

Power your load-handling equipment. Power take-offs transfer power from the engine to separate attachments – like a crane or cement mixer. The Volvo FE offers a variety of power take-offs that can be tailored to your needs.

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%.

The Euro 6 solution from Volvo

How it works

1. Engine
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.
