The diesel engine's torque curve

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. 

Fuel efficiency puts money in your pocket as well as contributing to sustainability

Built-in fuel efficiency – and environmental care

The optimised combustion chamber geometry. The fast and precise EMS-controlled injection. The high gas-fill ratio. We could go on listing what makes Volvo engines hard to beat when it comes to fuel economy. Your bottom line will reap the benefits. So will the environment.
