Volvo FH16 Introduces All-New D17 Engine Technology: More Power, Less Fuel

globalautonews Views  

Volvo Trucks has unveiled the new Volvo FH16 model, which boasts excellent fuel efficiency and is equipped with the all-new Volvo D17 engine. It is particularly notable for its superb performance, increased durability, 17-liter power, and 780 horsepower.

The new 17-liter 780 hp Volvo FH16 adds 7% torque while achieving 5% less fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions compared with its predecessor. This is the optimal combination to increase efficiency and productivity in difficult and diverse transportation processes, and it also has the advantage of running on 100% renewable biofuel.

The all-new D17 engine is also available in the new Volvo FH16 Aero, which offers even better fuel economy when combined with the aerodynamic truck cab.

“Our engineers have delivered an engine that combines the highest torque and power level in any European truck with superior fuel efficiency. The facts speak for themselves – more torque and power with significant fuel and CO2 savings is a fantastic result. This means that our customers can carry out their assignments more efficiently and with higher productivity”, said Jan Hjelmgren, Head of Product Management and Quality at Volvo Trucks.

This all-new fuel-efficient engine is one example of Volvo Trucks’ continuous effort to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions from existing driveline technologies while introducing new technologies.

Three Power Levels

Volvo’s new 17-litre Euro 6 engine has three power levels: 600 hp, 700 hp, and 780 hp. Torque levels have been increased to 3000 Nm, 3400 Nm, and 3800 Nm in the top version. The gearbox has been updated to handle up to 3800 Nm, and internal gearbox efficiency has been improved on the 3000 Nm and 3400 Nm versions.

Biofuel certified

The new D17 engine is certified to run on HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) in all power ratings. The 700 hp version is licensed to run on 100% biodiesel (B100).

The Volvo FH16 and FH16 Aero with the all-new D17 engine will be available for ordering from mid-2024, and production will start in the second half of 2024.
