The new 2007 truck engines being produced by Volvo Trucks
North America and its sister company, Mack Trucks, have won the approval of the
Environmental Protection Agency.
The EPA certified that the engines meet the new emission
standards, which require a 50-percent reduction of nitrogen oxides and a
90-percent cut in particulates, or soot.
According to a press release from Volvo AB, the company is
currently testing more than 70 trucks equipped with '07 engines, including 30
in customer fleets.
