2015 Volvo XC90 Starts at $49,825
Pricing for Plug-In Hybrid Not Yet Announced
It’s one of the most highly anticipated new SUV introductions in the past year, and certainly for Volvo, the stakes could not be higher. Today, the Swedish automaker announced pricing for the 2015 Volvo XC90 fullsize crossover for the U.S. market, with the T6 AWD Momentum model starting at $49,825, including an estimated $925 destination. The more exclusive Inscription trim starts at $55,425, including destination.
Prices have not yet been announced for the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid or the T6 R-Design model. Unlike past variants of the XC90, which have been powered by everything from an I-5 to even a unique 60-degree transverse-mounted V-8, all future XC90s will be exclusively four-cylinder powered, in both gas, diesel, and hybrid variants. The most powerful variant, the T8 Twin Engine, has a combined system output of 400 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque, while the T6 has 316 hp out of its turbo-and-supercharged 2.0L I-4.
The outgoing 2014 model went more than a decade on the same platform, receiving evolutionary updates and a variety of different engines over the years, including the aforementioned 4.4L Yamaha-designed narrow-angle V-8. The last available engine in the outgoing XC90 was a transverse-mounted 3.2L I-6 producing 240 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque.
