Koln, 22. June 2010 – Volvo introduces seven new engines: three gasoline and four diesel. In the gasoline engines, the power of the 3.0-liter six-cylinder T6 was increased to 304 hp – with reduced consumption. Similar applies to the 3.2-liter six-cylinder, which now makes 243 hp. New in the program is the 2.0T GTDI (Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection), a four-cylinder petrol engine that connects turbocharger and direct injection and makes 203 hp. The new diesel variants pay the D2 unit, a 1,6-liter motor with 115 hp and the D3 motor, a funfzylinder which is available with 150 and 163 hp and with 2.0 or 2.4 liters of displacement. At the D4, this is a funfzylinder with 2.0 liters capacity and 177 hp.
Always with braking energy jerk production
All drives are combined series-maby with a braking energy jerk recovery. In addition, the electrohydraulic power steering for consumption reduction was improved, which, however, in the face of their already transparent energy demand only a small contribution.
With the model change Volvo also introduces a new series nomenclature. The gasoline engines are artistic with a T and the diesel variants with a D. The high the number is behind the respective letter, the powerful is the engine. In the vehicles operated with E85 bioethanol, a F is added as before. The consuming gasoline or diesel variant of each series, as before, bears the name Drive.
