Powerhouse. Business as usual for Mack MP10 its Volvo D16 stablemate.

 

Volvo Group Australia (VGA) has moved quickly to bluntly refute competitor rumours that the future of its highly successful 16 litre engine is under threat.

The rumours have emerged in the wake of a recent North American decision to discontinue production of the Volvo D16 and Mack MP10 engines due to a decline in market demand in the US. 

However, according to senior VGA sources, the decision impacts engines produced in North America only and will have absolutely no bearing on Australian operations where the popular D16 and MP10 engines are sourced from Sweden with current Euro V emissions technology.

VGA insists demand for the high horsepower heavy-duty vehicles continues to climb in Australia, with the Volvo FH600, FH700, and Mack Super-Liner playing critical roles and continuing to increase market share in the heavy-duty sector.
