The Volvo FH16 is a commercial 18-wheeler truck that was released back in 2004 appearing similar to the original FH. They varied in engines and brake horse power. Starting at 510 BHP building all the way to 660 BHP, it was the fastest truck that Volvo has ever built.

After delaying introduction of new 16 litre engine for 2 years, in 2003 Volvo had introduced what was at the time its most powerful truck ever built. The D16C engine was available in two power outputs configurations 550 hp and 610 hp and it was a completely new design similar in the lines of D9 engine introduced a couple of years earlier for FM series. The notable design changes included timing gears being on the flywheel side of the engine (rear mounted), design which allows for increased airflow around the engine , more precise injection and valve operation, noise reduction and manufacturing cost due to flywheel casing being used to house timing gears as well. In 2005 Volvo had increased the available power of D16C to 660 hp respectively making in it one of the most powerful production truck available. Currently D16E engines are available in Selective Catalytic Reduction at power output 540 hp, 580 hp 660 hp.

Now Volvo have unveiled a new FH16 but with a face-lift. It looks a lot smarter and has a lot of new and exciting toys to play with. Plus all new Volvos are more spacious than the old ones.
