Engine Volvo D16E660

Engine Volvo D16E6

The Volvo D16E660 is a 16.1 liter, 6-cylinder in-line diesel engine equipped with a turbocharger and intercooler. Engine power 660 HP The engine complies with the EU emission requirements of the Euro 4 standard.

D16E660 is designed for heavy freight transport. It is based on a robust and reliable design with an overhead camshaft, four valves per cylinder and a precision electronic fuel injection system. Thanks to its very high power, the D16E660 engine delivers impressive torque across a wide rpm range, guaranteeing excellent handling characteristics even in hilly terrain. And the high torque at low revs provides excellent traction performance. The D16E 660 engine is a low noise and low emission engine. The engine is Euro 4 compliant thanks to its Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust gas treatment. The Volvo D16E 660 can also be ordered with a Volvo engine brake (VEB +). This design provides very high braking force, enhancing safety and reducing wear on the service braking system.

Volvo D16E6The D16E engine is equipped with unit injectors providing high pressure injection. The specially designed combustion chamber and intake manifold ensure optimal combustion. The gas filling rate is very high, which contributes to high efficiency. It is an economical engine with high power and high torque over a wide rpm range, giving the D16E excellent driving performance, even in harsh transport conditions.

In addition to the optimal combustion process, the exhaust gases are treated with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. In this process, AdBlue is injected into the SCR catalytic converter before the exhaust gases enter the SCR catalytic converter. AdBlue reacts with nitrogen oxides to significantly reduce emissions. Thanks to this system, the D16E engine is approved according to the Euro 4 emission standard.
