Volvo Trucks introducing 17 L engine for FH16 truck

31 January 2024

Volvo Trucks is introducing a new 17-liter diesel engine for its FH16 truck. With up to 780 hp and 3,800 Nm of torque, the new D17 inline six-cylinder engine is the strongest engine in the industry, intended for heavy transport applications.

The new D17 Euro 6 engine comes with three power levels: 600 hp, 700 hp and 780 hp. Torque levels have been increased to 3,000 Nm, 3,400 Nm and 3,800 Nm in the top version. The higher power and torque levels translate into faster engine response, better drivability, maximum productivity, and improved fuel efficiency.
