2018 Volvo XC60 Making U.S. Debut Next Week

Volvo’s best-selling crossover is getting a reworking, which we already saw last month at the Geneva Motor Show. Volvo has since confirmed the new crossover will make its U.S. debut next week at the New York Auto Show. Along with the reveal plans, Volvo has also confirmed some details regarding the U.S. version.

Stateside buyers will be able to select from T5, T6 and T8 TwinEngine trim levels. Both the T5 and T6 will utilize Volvo’s well-known 2.0-liter engine with the T5 being a 250 horsepower turbocharged version, while the T6 pairs a supercharger as well to bump to 316 horsepower. The top tier T8 TwinEngine will stack the T6 engine with a plug-in hybrid system to generate a whopping 400 horsepower.

Also in typical Volvo fashion, the U.S. version of the XC60 will feature partial self-driving technology and Volvo’s sexy design theme shared with the 90 series cars.

Volvo is also slated to reveal some minor changes to the 2018 S90 during the New York show next week.

    Volvo is really nailing it lately. I love the S90, XC90, and their new Cross Country products.
    in pix at least, I don't like the side-sculpting

    dunno if it'd (even) be noticeable in person


    would it cause physical pain to Volvo stylists to have a HINT of a BUMPer in front??


    tho the ribbon-like dash trim is interesting, I'd really hafta see it in person to judge
    Meh, not my cup of tea. It does look OK though on second thought.
    Looks very nice. The XC60 needed an update badly.
