Volvo has tossed everything possible at the powertrains of the XC90. For the 2023 model year, that means offering hybridization to every model.
If last week in the automotive world didn’t excite you, you can’t call yourself a true automotive enthusiast. There are many new models on the way, upgrades that we want to enjoy and some old names making the rounds back to becoming some of the most impressive and admired vehicles on the road. Because there was so much covered with the new items coming down the line, you can enjoy a wrap up of last week from the AutoGuide team and know that they have shared and we’ve discussed some of the amazing new developments.
It used to be that Volvo had only one thing going for it, even though this brand has made some of the most admired cars and SUV ever built, safety was the name of the game at Volvo. This was most the case because a Volvo model meant you chose a car that had no style or elegance to it. Some of the wagons and sedans from Volvo have been heavy hulking tanks of vehicles that felt safe, but weren’t a joy to drive or look at. All that has changed and we have a new era of Volvo.
The North American International Auto Show, also known as the Detroit Auto Show brings us a great menu of new cars for us to admire and desire. This show is the beginning each year of a full year of discussions when it comes to the concept models as much as for those that are deemed ready for production for the next model year. What we say this year in Detroit gave us a look at some cars that are ready to be enjoyed and some exceptional new looks that should show up with the technology we want to see and enjoy.
Even though we all want to know we are getting a great deal, some vehicles are expensive just because a particular name is on them. Normally when a higher brand has its name on a vehicle it’s for good reason, offering a great deal of awesome features to support the need to have a more expensive vehicle that drives better, rides quieter, gives you great off road capability or any of a variety of other reasons to have the price escalated. Here are the most expensive crossover SUVs for 2016, as you will see, most of them are expensive for good reason.
Volvo has a reputation for safety. When you see a Volvo vehicle from many years ago you see one that appears to be a square tank on wheels with all the increased safety features and protection but lacked any real design. The most recent lineups from Volvo offer a huge amount of style and design to give us looks that are exactly what we want to see in vehicles of this caliber. The new XC90 is a great example of the style ambition Volvo has brought forth and shows off with a complete rebuild from the ground up.
