Summer next year will see the arrival of the Volvo Trucks’ new flagship model – the FH16, in Euro-6 configuration. With a new generation of 16-litre engines, it not only conforms to the strict standards for low emissions, it also meets high expectations on performance and productivity from customers in the most demanding operations.
“We are proud to have succeeded in meeting the Euro-6 requirements while at the same time retaining the best driveability and performance on the market. Fuel consumption also remains highly competitive,” says Kristin Signert, Long Haul Segment Manager at Volvo Trucks.
The new Euro-6 engine range comprises three output levels: 750 hp (3,550 Nm), 650 hp (3,150 Nm) and 550 hp (2,900 Nm). All three engines are mated to Volvo’s automated transmission, I-Shift. The 550 hp version is also available in a variant with 2,800 Nm for a manual gearbox.
Launched originally in 1993, the Volvo FH16 was then available in two variants – 470 hp and 520 hp at Euro-1.
Sales of the Volvo FH16 with Euro-6 engine will get under way in next spring, with production scheduled for early June.
