The next step towards cleaner and more fuel-efficient engines. Several small advances results in a big improvement. Giving increased engine torque and response at low rpm on the D13 engine. As well as longer oil drain intervals on the D11 engine. This means less environmental impact.
Excellent torque at low revs. An extremely wide max torque range. And peak torque meets peak power. 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.
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.
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.
Choose from seven different power ratings. There are four 11-litre (D11) and three 13-litre (D13) options.
