Power increase

PLANT launches

Volvo Trucks has launched what it claims is the world's most powerful production truck. It has upgraded its FH16's engine to 660 hp and 3,100 Nm of torque.

Its engine features selective catalytic reduction and an additive to treat nitrogen oxide emissions.

It is compliant with Tier IV emission regulations, which will apply from October for roadgoing trucks.
