New Turbo-Diesel D3 For Volvo

Volvo has announced the availability of a revised diesel engine on its 2013 models.

The new entry-level 5-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo diesel will be available in the S60, V60, XC60, V70 and S80 Volvo models.

The engine, which has an output of 136 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, will be identified as D3. The engine is available both with a manual and an automatic gearbox. All variants except the XC60 D3 with automatic gearbox will have start/stop technology.

Among the changes, this 2.0-liter engine has lighter camshafts; new piston rings, vacuum pump and flywheel sensor; lighter connecting rods and crankshaft; electric cooling jet control valve; and a new turbocharger.

Depending on the model it is installed in, the D3 will have CO2 ratings between 114 and 119 grams.

The D3 is also available in the new V40 model, with more power at 150 horsepower, but with the same torque rating.

Other configurations of this diesel engine includes the D2 with 115 horsepower, the D4 with 163 horsepower and the D5 with 215 horsepower.

To clear the confusion, a D3 with 163 horsepower and 295 pond-feet of torque was introduced in the Volvo S60 and V60 in 2010. This one is now known as D4.

It is unlikely that the D3 will make its way on North American shores, at least for now.
