Volvo Trucks introducing new 17L engine for FH16 truck

Volvo Trucks is introducing a new engine for its FH16 truck. With up to 780 hp and 3800 N·m, the new 17-litre engine delivers outstanding fuel efficiency and durability. The new engine is certified to run on biofuels.

The new engine comes with three power levels; 600 hp, 700 hp and 780 hp. Torque levels have been increased to 3000 N·m, 3400 N·m and 3800 N·m in the top version. The higher power and torque levels translate into faster engine response, better driveability, maximum productivity and improved fuel efficiency.

The D17 engine is equipped with a single efficient turbocharger that boosts engine responsiveness and improves the driving experience. Volvo’s innovative patented wave piston design (earlier post) optimizes combustion and reduces emissions, while the new injection system ensures the best fuel economy, and the increased peak cylinder pressure enables high power output.

The engine brake power across the entire speed range has been greatly improved with outstanding engine response. This enables fast gearshifts and results in less wear and tear on the brake pads and disc brakes, while being more efficient going downhill.

The new D17 engine is certified to run on HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) in all power ratings. The 700hp version is also certified to run on 100% biodiesel (B100). The gearbox has been updated to handle up to 3800 N·m, and internal gearbox efficiency has been further improved on the 3000 N·m and 3400 N·m versions.

Sales start for the Volvo FH16 with the new engine is in mid-2024. Production start is due in the second half of 2024.

The new engine is available in the all-new Volvo FH16 Aero and the latest version of the Volvo FH16.
