Up to 750 hp of fuel-efficient power
Volvo FH16 VOLVO DIESEL ENGINES
Powerful. Torque-strong. Super efficient. And now with less impact on the environment – thanks to updated engines and software. Our world leading diesel engines boost productivity. And they cooperate perfectly with I-Shift gearboxes to improve your fuel-efficiency.
Look at our curves
Excellent torque at low revs. An extremely wide max torque range. And peak torque that overlaps peak power in the mid rev range. Compare our torque curves and you’ll see the difference. Climb in the cab and you’ll feel it – incredible acceleration, unrivalled pulling power and a fuel-efficient, pleasurable ride at speed.
Power for your business
The D16 engine’s massive power and wide max torque range means that the FH16 can carry out really heavy assignments with a high level of productivity. Your bottom line will reap the benefits.
Volvo Engine Brake – VEB+
Our patented engine brake, VEB+, uses a unique camshaft design to absorb up to 470 kW (639 hp) on the D16. Coupled with our I-Shift transmission system and clever cruise control, you can maintain a higher average speed without compromising safety or fuel economy.
Cleaner, greener engines
With our Euro 6 step C engines, we take another leap towards cleaner transportation and reduced environmental impact. The performance is the same, only the fuel consumption is lower.
How our Euro 6 solution 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 DPF and good SCR functionality.
3. 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.
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.
