And of course we have covered the whole story since the first day when the interior images were released, and also when the powertrain spec were available, to the latest crash test results.


Yesterday, the first production 2015 XC90 has rolled off the assembling line in Torslandaverken (The Torslanda Works – one of the largest Volvo factories which is located in Torslanda, Sweden).

2015 Volvo XC90 T8 Trim: Canada Pricing Released

For some consumers, a V8 engine seems to be a must-have when purchasing an SUV. Those who have this in mind must be disappointed when they first looked at the upcoming 2015 XC90’s specification sheet: because only 4-cylinder engines are offered in the new XC90.


But how about a powertrain that is equivalent, or even better than the traditional V8 engine? The XC90 has an answer for you: the XC90 T8 trim.


The 2015 XC90 T8 has a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, which is good for 320hp; it also has an electric motor driving the rear wheels, which offers another 80hp. The total combined output is rated at 400hp and 472 lb-ft of torque...

Current Volvo XC90 Will Keep On For Sale in China, Renamed to XC Classic

We all know the redesigned 2015 Volvo XC90 will be in dealership’s showroom very soon. It is natural for us to think the current generation of XC90 will be discontinued.

Well, this is true for most of the markets in the world, but not the case for China market. Just like VW is still selling the B5, B6 together with the B7 Passat in China at this moment, Volvo is going for the same route for the retired XC90.

According to Volvo, it has planned to keep the current XC90 in China market for the next couple years. To distinguish the old XC90 from the new generation, it will be renamed to “XC Classic”.



The “new” XC Classic will be made in Volvo’s China factory, located in Daq...
