More About The Volvo D13

Like all of Volvo's engines, the D13 is built on a foundation of proven, developed architecture that leverages innovative hardware to maximize efficiency. Energy that is normally lost is recovered with standard features including low-friction pistons and a two-speed water pump, as well as optional features like turbo compounding. A standard hybrid common rail fuel injection system gets the most power out of every drop of fuel.

Common-rail fuel injection

The unique design of Volvo’s common-rail fuel system delivers multiple benefits. Finer control allows quicker, more accurate fuel injection for improved fuel efficiency; while a clean installation improves reliability and dramatically reduces engine noise.

Low Friction Wave Piston Design

Improved piston skirt finishing reduces friction losses, benefitting power and efficiency. The piston's wave design increases compression to boost efficiency, improving combustion to minimize soot.

Improved Fuel Efficiency

Offering an impressive mix of power, efficiency, and value, all Volvo's engines are OBD 2016-compliant and built on a foundation of proven, developed architecture that leverages innovative hardware to maximize efficiency.

High-Efficiency Aftertreatment

"One-box" aftertreatment system offers smaller packaging and reduces weight by 17 pounds from previous systems. Provides better thermal encasing of exhaust energy, improves muffler efficiency.
