Spring 2014 will see the launch of the new Euro 6 version of the Volvo Trucks model, the Volvo FH16. With a new generation of 16-litre engines, this new model complies not only with the strictest standards in pollution emissions but also meets customer expectations in terms of performance and productivity.
The new range of Euro 6 engines offers three levels of power: 750 hp (3,550 Nm), 650 hp (3,150 Nm) and 550 hp (2 900 Nm). 3 engines combined with the I-Shift, Volvo's automatic transmission. The 550 hp version is also available in a 2,800 Nm version with manual gearbox.
