Volvo launches Euro 5 heavy duty truck

Volvo has launched the FH16 truck, designed for the heaviest and most demanding of transport operations.

At the truck’s heart is the D16G Рthe 16-litre, Euro 5, Selective Catalytic Reduction engine, which has a 700 hp capacity and 3150 Nm of torque.

Although 40hp more powerful than previous engines, fuel consumption remains the same as the current engine generation. The engine also features a new oil thermostat that has a favourable effect on fuel consumption.

The truck features electronically-controlled exhaust brake as standard with an output of 230 kW.

The truck is also available in variants producing 540 and 600 hp respectively.
