Volvo, the Swedish automotive manufacturer, produces a range of engines for their vehicles, including both gasoline and diesel options. Volvo’s engines are designed with a focus on safety, efficiency, and performance. Below, I’ll provide an overview of some of the engines commonly used in Volvo vehicles as of my last knowledge update in January 2022:

  1. Volvo Drive-E Engines: Volvo’s modern engine lineup often includes “Drive-E” engines, which are designed for a balance of performance and fuel efficiency. These engines come in various configurations, including 4-cylinder turbocharged and supercharged options, and they are often used in Volvo’s smaller models, such as the S60 and XC60.
  2. Volvo T5 and T6 Engines: Volvo’s T5 and T6 engines are part of the Drive-E family. The T5 is typically a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with a single turbocharger, while the T6 features a similar 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with both a supercharger and a turbocharger. These engines are known for their power and efficiency and are used in various models.
  3. Volvo T8 Twin Engine: The T8 Twin Engine is Volvo’s plug-in hybrid powertrain, combining a gasoline engine with an electric motor. It’s used in models like the Volvo XC90 and S90. The T8 offers both electric-only driving and hybrid power modes.
  4. Volvo Four-Cylinder Diesel Engines: In some markets, Volvo offers 4-cylinder diesel engines that are known for their efficiency and torque. These diesel engines are used in various Volvo models, especially in Europe.
  5. Volvo V6 and V8 Engines: Historically, Volvo has offered larger V6 and V8 engines for their more performance-oriented vehicles. These engines are designed to provide more power and are typically used in their larger and sportier models.
  6. Volvo Electric Vehicles (EVs): Volvo has been developing electric vehicles and plans to release several electric models. The Volvo XC40 Recharge and the upcoming C40 Recharge are examples of all-electric models with electric motors powered by batteries.
  7. Volvo Mild Hybrid Engines: Volvo has introduced mild hybrid technology in some of its models, which combines an internal combustion engine with a 48-volt electric system to improve efficiency and reduce emissions.

Please keep in mind that Volvo, like many other automakers, regularly updates its engine offerings to meet changing regulations and market demands. For the most up-to-date information on Volvo’s engine lineup and offerings, it’s recommended to visit the official Volvo website or contact a Volvo dealership.

 This automatic gearbox is a four-speed unit with electronic control of gear selection, shift quality and torque converter ock-up. Selections on the selector lever assembly are transmitted to the gearbox by a selector cable. A gear position switch on the gearbox transmits the gear selection to an Electronic Automatic Transmission (EAT) ECU, which outputs the appropriate control signals to an electro-hydraulic valve block in the gearbox. A mode switch enables the driver to change the control mode of the EAT ECU. The EAT ECU operates warning lamps in the instrument pack to indicate the control mode and system status.
The gearbox features a pressure lubrication system and is cooled by pumping the lubricant through an oil cooler.
On NAS market vehicles from 03 model year, the ZF 4HP24 transmission unit is introduced for use with the 4.6-litre V8 engine. This transmission is required to accommodate the increased power output of the larger engine. The ZF 4HP22 transmission remains in use on vehicles with Td5 and 4.0-litre V8 engines.
Both transmission units are of similar construction, with the ZF 4HP24 unit being 15 mm longer than the 4HP22 unit to accommodate a larger fluid pump. The operation of both transmission units is the same.
