Sales of the Volvo FH16 Euro 6 are now under way, and with up to 750hp and 3500 Nm of torque it retains its position as the strongest truck in the world.
The latest model comes equipped with a new generation of 16-litre engines producing a choice of 750, 650 or 550hp – all conforming to the latest Euro-6 emission legislation. Maximium braking effect has also been raised, from 425kW to 470kW at 2,200 rpm, further improving safety and reducing wear on the foundation brakes.
“The Volvo FH16 with Euro 6 engine has the same high reliability, the same fuel consumption and the same power as before. But now the driver has access to maximum torque from just 900 or 950 revs a minute depending on engine version. This improved torque curve also allows customers to choose a faster rear axle ratio for best fuel efficiency,” said Astrid Drewsen, Product Manager, Drivelines at Volvo Trucks.
The first Euro 6 versions of the Volvo FH16 will be delivered in early June.
