NEW 12-LITRE HORIZONTAL ENGINE: LOWER IN FUEL, HIGHER IN TORQUE
Low fuel consumption, environmentally compatible, operating reliability and exceptional power. These four terms well describe Volvo Buses' latest innovation in the engine field, the Volvo DH12, one of the most important elements in Volvo's new product platform. The Volvo DH12 is a horizontally constructed, electronically controlled 12-litre diesel engine based on Volvo Trucks' most modern 12-litre engine. In addition to turbocooling, the engine offers 4-valve technology, overhead camshaft and unit injectors for each cylinder.
