The Volvo engine family is built on a foundation of proven, developed architecture that leverages innovative hardware to maximize power and torque with greater efficiency. Energy that is normally lost is recovered with standard features, including lower friction pistons that optimize cylinder efficiency. A standard common-rail fuel injection system gets the most power out of every drop of fuel. And reliability isn’t sacrificed for greater efficiency. All Volvo D11 and D13 engines carry a B50 life of 1.2 million miles. Our reliable Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) compresses and moves the intake air while providing the correct back pressure to drive the EGR process. And the VGT enhances our intelligent Volvo Engine Brake (VEB). This gives drivers impressive engine braking and reduces some of the wear and tear on brake linings that’s so common in off-highway jobs.

Volvo D11

325-425 hp, 1250-1550 lb-ft.

The Volvo D11 is a fuel-efficient, lightweight engine designed to improve reliability and minimize cost of operation. The D11 delivers performance competitive with larger engines, beginning at 325 hp and up to an impressive 425 hp at 1,550 lb-ft. torque. Ratings for Eco-Torque are available. It’s also a lighter solution for maximizing fuel efficiency in tare-weight sensitive vocational applications.

Volvo D13

375-500 hp, 1450-1850 lb-ft.

The Volvo D13’s efficiency and power improve operating costs, while meeting 2017 GHG emissions standards. Twelve power ratings are available, from 375 to 500 hp. Eco-Torque and Dual-Torque ratings provide “dual-personality” torque output for customers who desire the fuel economy of lower torque with the strong performance of higher torque.


Every VHD comes with the Volvo I-Shift for Severe Duty transmission, built for rugged applications. The Volvo I-Shift for Severe Duty includes upgraded hardware and software, improved engaging sleeves for greater durability, and a countershaft brake for improved performance and smoother shifting. The electronic control unit can handle any load and any road, shifting perfectly every time. Clutch durability and torsional dampening are also upgraded. So the Volvo I-Shift not only keeps fuel costs down, it slows driveline wear, reduces noise, extends transmission life, and lowers maintenance costs.
