Volvo Trucks North America is introducing the abutting bearing of its turbo admixture technology, accouterment up to an added 3% advance in ammunition ability over the accepted 13L turbo-compound engine, the D13TC. This new agent delivers up to 11% ammunition accumulation all-embracing compared to model-year 2015 trucks, Volvo said.
Volvo appear added improvements for the next-generation D13 as well, including added ability over a added ambit of applications, added agent ratings, and a new EE Extra Ability drive mode.
The new D13TC will be accessible for adjustment in the fourth division of 2019 and go into assembly at the end of the aboriginal division of 2020.
“We developed our aboriginal bearing of the Turbo Admixture agent in 2017, and back again about 300 actor afar accept been logged, acceptance the up to 8% fuel-savings benefits,” said John Moore, artefact business administrator at Volvo Trucks North America. “This new D13TC builds aloft this game-changing agent technology, added accretion ammunition ability by up to 3% over the accepted D13TC engine, extenuative about $1,200 per year per truck, based on the boilerplate ammunition amount and 125,000 afar per year.”
Volvo Trucks’ new D13TC offers three alone drive modes, Dynamic Torque, an added 405-hp rating, and the abutting change of the Volvo Trucks’ patented beachcomber agent design. These updates accredit further-increased ammunition ability over a added ambit of loads, agent speeds and agent rpm. This offers a broader use of applications compared to the aboriginal bearing of the D13TC engine, which was advised accurately for over-the-road, long-haul applications for trucks loaded at 80,000 pounds.
The three alone drive modes accessible with the new D13TC agent are Extra Efficiency, Economy, and Performance. These modes will acquiesce the disciplinarian to bigger optimize ammunition ability for the agent with adapted performance, depending on application, cartography and active conditions. This new agent additionally appearance a added rpm ability band, which enables top ammunition ability for best periods of time.
Volvo describes Dynamic Torque as an incremental torque arrangement advised to accommodate the appropriate torque at the appropriate time. Rather than operating in silos of high-torque and low-torque modes, Dynamic Torque automatically sets a torque akin abased aloft the weight of the truck, the grade, and the alley altitude at any accustomed time. Dynamic Torque additionally appearance an automated 12th accessory lockout on abundant endless with Adaptive Gearing agent ratings. A kick-down about-face forth with achievement drive approach acquiesce admission to abounding torque for barter acute it on demand. This simpler, added able arrangement on the new D13TC agent will accommodate an alike added constant advance in ammunition ability beyond altered applications, enabling barter to cut costs on a added ambit of operations, Volvo said.
The new agent additionally appearance a revised beachcomber piston, advised and patented by Volvo Trucks. The bigger architecture optimizes beachcomber technology to analogously administer the air/fuel admixture in the cylinder, afire the ammunition added consistently than a acceptable piston. Volvo’s architecture increases the compression arrangement from 17:1 to 18:1 while advancement up to a 90% abridgement of charcoal in the cylinder, added convalescent ammunition ability in the engine.
“The alone drive modes acquiesce drivers new heights in ammunition ability after sacrificing performance. We are additionally demography it to the abutting akin with a simpler torque amalgamation that delivers the appropriate torque at the appropriate time,” said Moore. “Not alone is it acid bend back it comes to acceptable use of agent in the busline industry, but it is the best fuel-efficient Volvo agent on the bazaar for our customers, with trucks active cleaner at a bargain cost.”
