Engine Volvo D13C500The D13C engines are equipped with unit injectors that provide high pressure injection. The design of the combustion chamber and intake manifold ensures optimal fuel combustion. The gas filling ratio is extremely high, which contributes to high efficiency.

This design contributes to the creation of an economical engine with high power and high torque over a wide rpm range. This gives the D13C engines an excellent driving performance.

The low maintenance costs of the engines of this model are supported by the long intervals between the next technical inspections. And, for example, the engine oil is changed every 60 thousand kilometers. Among other things, Volvo D13 engines can operate for a very long time before the first overhaul, which allows them to easily pay off and bring profit to their owner.
