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-liter models, in addition to the 16-liter Volvo D16 introduced earlier this year.
The new engines will use proven technologies. Volvo has selected exhaust gas recirculation (HEGR) as the primary NOx emissions control and a diesel particulate filter (DPF) for particulate control for its EPA’07-compliant engines.
Volvo plans to launch the engines to customers and dealers during the first quarter of 2006.
