With the launch of the Volvo D12, the Swedish automaker and parts supplier Volvo shows a true feat of engineering. This engine operates using diesel fuel. It comes in various designs, outfitting boats and commercial trucks. The Volvo D12 features a basic design of a V6 engine, with four cylinders and a direct-injection system. This engine has an electrical start system, and comes in a compact, lightweight design that provides a high power-to-weight ratio. For oceangoing vessels, this engine comes with a liquid-cooling system. This system operates using an internal computer sensor, which signals the release of cooling agents, including chemicals and oil, when the engine gets too hot. Land engines feature cooling systems that use air. These systems draw in air from front vents and draw it towards the engine, performing the same instant cooling function. You can use this engine in several designs, including a base edition with basic components, and higher-level editions compatible with turbo injections. The Volvo D12 turbo attaches to these engines, providing additional power and speed for optimal performance.
