Performance runs in the family

Volvo’s family of engines is built on a foundation of proven, developed architecture that leverages innovative hardware to maximize performance and efficiency.

Volvo D11

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.

Volvo D13

The Volvo D13’s efficiency, power, and light weight improve operating costs while meeting GHG emissions standards. Multiple power ratings are available, from 405 to 500 hp.

XE and Eco-Torque ratings both feature Dynamic Torque, an incremental torque system designed to provide the right torque at the right time. It provides an ideal solution for customers who desire the fuel economy of lower torque with the strong performance of higher torque.

Volvo D13TC

Ideal for applications operating primarily at cruise speed, the next generation D13TC uses turbo compounding to capture and harness energy typically lost through the exhaust to recover lost horsepower and improve fuel economy. The D13TC can offer fuel savings of up to 6% compared to the standard D13. The D13TC uses Dynamic Torque to automatically set a torque level dependent upon the weight of the truck, the grade and the road conditions at any given time.

The great shift

Volvo continues to offer the industry’s most advanced automated manual transmission.


Our newest I-Shift makes every load more productive, using intelligent electronics to continuously monitor grade, speed, weight, and engine load, shifting when necessary or holding a gear—whichever saves more fuel. So regardless of experience, training, or application, I-Shift helps every driver become more fuel efficient.

I-Shift for Severe Duty

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 cost.

I-Shift with Crawler Gears

When steep-grade startability and low-speed maneuverability are critical, the I-Shift with Crawler Gears is the answer for maximum Gross Combined Weight (GCW) loads. The crawler option adds either one or two gears to the I-Shift, a low gear and ultra-low gear, for low-speed control.

The I-Shift with Crawler Gears’ weight capacity is among the industry’s highest for automated manual transmissions. It enables controlled forward and reverse travel at extremely slow speeds, perfect for paving and curbing applications. Upgraded software optimizes shifting for high GCW applications, allowing shifting to occur at higher revs, and enabling drivers to control downshifts.
