Volvo Trucks Introduces New Engine Range With More Power From Less Fuel

Volvo Trucks is introducing a new range of engines and transmissions that give up to three percent lower fuel consumption, 40 percent lower emissions of carbon dioxide and higher power outputs. At the start of the year, the company launched the world's most powerful truck, a Volvo FH16 with a power output of 700 hp and is now introducing some of the market's most fuel-efficient trucks. The focus is on the Volvo FH and Volvo FM with 13- and 11-litre engines, which account for the vast majority of Volvo Trucks' sales. Volvo's 7-litre engine, which powers the Volvo FE and Volvo FL, is also being launched in a new version. Available video includes engine and truck driving shots as well as soundbites.
