Volvo Trucks VNL models now standard with Volvo D13 turbo compound engine

The D13 turbo compound (D13TC) engine from Volvo Trucks is now standard on all Volvo VNL models, the OEM recently announced. The D13TC engine is designed to minimize greenhouse gas emissions while enhancing fuel economy. In the Volvo VNL 740, 760 and 860 models, the new D13TC engine offers increased fuel savings for a wider range of applications, such as long haul or local delivery, as well as fully or partially loaded. On average, the D13TC engine delivers improved fuel efficiency of up to 11% compared to 2015 Volvo truck models. Enhanced fuel efficiency options from Volvo Trucks like the Xceed package, available on the VNL 760 and 860, can include the FlowBelow Aerokit and other optimized exterior design features to deliver fuel efficiency gains as high as 16%, the OEM says.

Depending on the operation, the next-generation D13TC engine provides fuel savings up to 6% compared to the 2020 Volvo D13 VGT engine, Volvo says. According to the company, the new Turbo Compound engine improves emissions, reducing the overall carbon dioxide footprint while still maintaining high average transport speeds.

The new D13TC engine also provides optimized performance efficiency for a wide range of applications, including tanker, bulk haul and flatbed. Dynamic Torque, a feature standard on the D13TC engine, enables the vehicle to adjust to the exact load without impacting performance.
