VNL Fuel Efficiency Packages
Discover the Savings
Volvo Trucks now offers three Fuel Efficiency packages to increase fuel savings* when compared with our baseline offering. Our Plus, Advanced and XCEED packages each allow you to tailor powertrain performance and maximize fuel efficiency for your specific application.
Our newest I-Shift makes drivers more productive, using intelligent electronics to continuously monitor grade, speed, weight, and engine load, shifting when necessary or holding a gear-whichever saves more fuel. So regardless of experience or training, I-Shift helps every driver become more fuel-efficient.
Volvo's Adaptive Loading is designed to help trucks run at peak fuel efficiency and performance every mile of every haul. It senses weight differentiation and automatically lifts the axle to reduce friction and save fuel. From a full load down to an empty trailer, this integrated and automated technology makes every driver a more efficient driver.
I-See Predictive Cruise Control
Combine I-Shift with an intelligent cruise control and you get I-See. It's a unique system that learns the topography of the road. Later on, it automatically uses its knowledge to save fuel when the intelligent cruise control is engaged.
Performance runs in the family
Volvo’s family of engines is built on a foundation of proven, developed architecture that leverages innovative
hardware to maximize performance and efficiency.
Innovative technology. Optimized power.
The Volvo D11 is a fuel-efficient, lightweight engine designed to improve reliability and minimize cost of operation. The D11 delivers performance competitive with larger engines, beginning at 325 hp and up to an impressive 425 hp at 1,550 lb-ft. torque.
The Volvo D13’s efficiency & power improve operating costs, while meeting 2017 GHG emissions standards. Twelve power ratings are available, from 405 to 500 hp. XE, Eco-Torque, and Dual-Torque ratings provide “dual-personality” torque output for customers who desire the fuel economy of lower torque with the strong performance of higher torque.
Ideal for applications operating at 65 mph, the D13TC engine for the new Volvo VNL uses turbo compounding to capture and harness energy typically lost through the exhaust. This gives you greater fuel efficiency and increased power.
Cummins X15 Performance Series
Cummins is a valued partner in developing engines that deliver everything from better fuel economy to improved reliability and durability. The X15 Performance Series (505-605 hp, 1850-2050 lb-ft.) upholds Cummins’ long tradition of innovation and dependability. It features Cummins' powerful engine brake with up to 600 bhp and the improved VGT turbocharger with an actuator that’s more than four times stronger than previous versions.
The great shift
Our newest I-Shift makes every load more productive, using intelligent electronics to continuously monitor grade, speed, weight, and engine load, shifting when necessary or holding a gear—whichever saves more fuel. So regardless of experience, training, or application, I-Shift helps every driver become more fuel efficient.
I-Shift for Severe Duty
The Volvo I-Shift for Severe Duty includes upgraded hardware and software, improved engaging sleeves for greater durability, and a countershaft brake for improved performance and smoother shifting. The electronic control unit can handle any load and any road, shifting perfectly every time. Clutch durability and torsional dampening are also upgraded. So the Volvo I-Shift not only keeps fuel costs down, it slows driveline wear, reduces noise, extends transmission life, and lowers maintenance cost.
I-Shift with Crawler Gears
When steep-grade startability and low-speed maneuverability are critical, the I-Shift with Crawler Gears is the answer for maximum Gross Combined Weight (GCW) loads. The crawler option adds either one or two gears to the I-Shift, a low gear and ultra-low gear, for low-speed control.
The I-Shift with Crawler Gears’ weight capacity is among the industry’s highest for automated manual transmissions. It enables controlled forward and reverse travel at extremely slow speeds, perfect for paving and curbing applications. Upgraded software optimizes shifting for high GCW applications, allowing shifting to occur at higher revs, and enabling drivers to control downshifts.
