Volvo: 2010 emissions standards add nearly $10,000 to truck stickers

| 3/3/2009

With the rollout of 2010 engines nearing, Volvo Trucks North America became the first OEM to announce its new pricing structure for the EPA compliant equipment.

Volvo Trucks says its diesel trucks equipped with engines that meet the EPA’s 2010 standards will come with a $9,600 surcharge.

The surcharge will apply to new trucks built with Volvo D11, D13 and D16 engines, as well as those with the Cummins ISX. All of the engines will be equipped with SCR aftertreatment. The new technology also includes the development of advanced onboard diagnostics systems required by the new emissions regulations.
