Swedes decided to turn their full attention toward the next generation of their flagship SUV and 2015 year model will be redesigned with many changes, this model was already presented and will arrive during the next year. The 2015 Volvo XC90 will be competitive on the market, fresh and different from what we are used to get.
The all new XC90 is available in two distinctive grades with entire lineup of powertrain options. It is interesting that everything will be based on the 2.0 liter inline four cylinder engines but those powertrains will include various combination. Turbocharged gasoline, turbocharged diesel and hybrid powertrains will be available for you to choose from and those will offer quite impressive power output range.
Powertrain lineup is the segment for which we could hear most rumors but at this point there are still not official information’s about the power that those will offer. What we could hear is that the top performance will be offered from engine that comes with supercharged and turbocharged engine plus electric motor. Total power of this system could be about 400 hp which is quite impressive even 2015 Volvo XC90 is one heavy vehicle. Diesel unit will bring more than 170 hp and a lot of torque while the gasoline unit is expected to push more than 240 hp and both of these will come with different tune levels and more than one power rating.
2015 Volvo XC90 Release Date
Before new model arrives in the next few months, the 12-year old design will be on the market. Even though XC90 can’t hide its age for a long time now, it is still one of the safest cars around. Many things will change and we will be getting more modern and interesting look. LED technology is available on both ends while at the front grille we have large and dominating Volvo badge. Front segment received few changes so it would offer better air supply to brakes and engine and the level of refinement in combination with aggressive looks is moved to the next level.
Interior offers three rows of seats, and while first two rows are superbly compiled, third row suffers from the lack of room. There are a few color options and the fact is that 2015 Volvo XC90 will also improve comfort on the inside. That’s possible thanks to the available luxury accents made of chrome and redwood, and of course thanks to the full leather seats. Dashboard is nicely rounded off and has all the essential controls in its instrument panel. Large touch screen on the center console will allow you to get all the most important details and to control almost all segments of the vehicle. Level of equipment will again depend on the trim level and you can expect to see quite impressive list of features.
Safety features of 2015 Volvo XC90 are rich, just like in any other Volvo. Airbag system includes side and side curtain airbags beside standard ones, while all models also get anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist, stability and traction control, roll-stability control, rollover mitigation and rear park assist. Blind spot information system is available as part of the optional package and so is rearview camera.
Price Of 2015 Volvo XC90
Price is not officially announced but we know that it will be similar to the previous version, with slight increase just like always when the new generation comes. Base price of the 2014th model was almost $40,000 so this one is expected to come with price tag of about $45,000. The 2015 Volvo XC90 will be a great mid-size luxury crossover and if you don’t mind waiting and slightly higher price, than go for it.
