Stage 5 Engine Gets More Power

Volvo Penta has announced a higher power output for its latest 11 L diesel engine, increasing it to 422 hp (315 kW) from the 382 hp (285 kW) that was given when it was introduced.

The D11 engine was revealed as part of the company’s Stage 5 solution earlier this year, and the new higher power output has been verified through extensive testing, it said.

The engine now has a power output of 315 to 422 hp (235 to 315 kW), which is complemented by an exhaust aftertreatment system (EATS) to comply with forthcoming European Union (EU) Stage 5 emissions regulations.

EU Stage 5 emissions legislation will come into force in 2019 and require a reduction in the number of particles emitted in addition to minimizing the overall particle mass.

The D11 is part of Volvo Penta’s off-road diesel engine range and is suitable for a variety of applications including straddle carriers, terminal tractors and heavy forklift trucks, said the company.
