GREENSBORO, N.C. — Volvo says its VE 465 engine has met all EPA emissions standards while improving power and torque.
It also says oil change intervals remain unchanged from the pre-EPA ’02 engines and there is no aftertreatment necessary to achieve the improved performance and reduced emissions.
Volvo says the engine is an attractive option for truck owners, as customers can avoid the expense and additional size and weight that comes with particulate traps and catalytic converters without sacrificing performance. The VE 465 also runs without the use of a variable geometry turbocharger.
The company also says driveability is improved, since the VE 465 delivers a flatter power output curve allowing drivers to access peak power throughout more of the engine’s range.
The engine, like other Volvo heavy-duty truck engines, utilizes the company’s V-Pulse technology to reduce emissions to acceptable levels. The VE 465 is available with features such as an exhaust pressure governor, an oil level indicator and a live PTO port on the side of the engine.
