Default 2011 Volvo FH16 gets 750hp and 3550Nm

The Volvo FH16 will be available at 3550Nm and 750hp, making it capable of handling the heaviest and most demanding transport tasks. Production for this Volvo Trucks unit is slated to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the 16-litre engine next year. The Volvo F16 was launched in 1987 with the company’s first-ever 16-litre engine, which produces 470hp. Since that time, the needs of the market have propelled the focus of development towards increasingly powerful trucks. Volvo Trucks President and CEO Staffan Jufors commented that with the Volvo FH16-750, the company can now provide customers with trucks that have absolute top performance, extremely low emissions and good fuel efficiency.

He further stated that it is an “uncompromising combination for the heaviest and most demanding of transport operations.” The new engine is derived on the same technology as the company’s current 16-litre 700hp diesel engine, which is an in-line six with overhead camshaft, unit injectors and four valves per cylinder. It has been optimized for higher torque and power, with the fuel consumption unchanged. The 750hp engine is available in two variants with one for Euro-5 and the other for Enhanced Environmentally-friendly Vehicle (EEV), giving an even lower particle emission and less smoke. The Volvo I-Shift automated gear changing system is available as a standard feature, modified to handle the high torque of the engine.

Moreover, the rear axle range encompasses axles for a maximum gross combination weight of 250 tons. For quick long-haul tasks, the latest RS1360 solo axle is a fuel-efficient alternative. The new 750hp engine gives out 2800 Nm of torque at 900 revs/minute. The torque curve then increases sharply and reaches its peak level of 3550Nm at 1050 revs/minute, then plateaus at 1400 revs/minute.

This makes it possible to keep a high speed on even the toughest climbs uphill. Volvo Trucks Product Manager Hayder Wokil disclosed that the more power that’s at the driver’s disposal at low revs when beginning to haul a heavy load, the less strain there is on the engine and the more fuel-efficient the progress would be. He added that this in turn results to “superb drivability.”

Sweet jeebus: 250 tons? That'd be one hell of a road train. The US maximum is 168,000 lbs or so, in Michigan iirc.
