Power and green efficiency
Volvo’s 7-litre diesel engine is one of the most efficient in its class and it complies with Euro 3, 4, 5 and EEV standards. An output of 290 bhp and 1200 Nm of torque contribute to smooth handling in all situations. There is also a version available with an output of 240 bhp (920 Nm) for Euro 3 and 4 standards. The choice of gearboxes allows for combinations that will suit any need, and Volvo’s single-reduction rear axle is available in a range of ratios. The benefits are the traditional Volvo hallmarks of first-class driveability, outstanding fuel efficiency and low environmental impact.

Cleaner with DPF and SCR
The DPF, Diesel Particulate Filter, reduces emissions of harmful particles by approximately 80%. The engine also features SCR, Selective Catalytic Reduction, in order to reduce NOx emissions.

Volvo means world-class ergonomics. Clear instrumentation and logical control panels help the driver stay alert, focused and in control.
