Posted on October 17, 2005

Volvo Trucks North America, Inc. announced that it will offer a complete family of Volvo diesel engines to meet the new emissions standards which take effect in 2007. The new family of engines will include 11 and 13 L models, along with the 16 L Volvo D16 introduced earlier this year. Volvo said the new engines will use proven technologies to meet the stringent 2007 emissions requirements, specifically high-performance exhaust gas recirculation (HEGR), along with a diesel particulate filter (DPF).

“Volvo plans to use its resources and expertise as the largest manufacturer of heavy-duty diesels in the world to give our customers an exceptionally broad, powerful and reliable line of diesels,” said Peter Karlsten, president and CEO of Volvo Trucks North America. Volvo said it plans to launch the engines to customers and dealers during the first quarter of 2006.
