Will The Volvo S90 Become The Standard For European Luxury?

Industry News / 10 Comments

Volvo certainly hopes so.

Volvo has been on a recent hot streak, punctuated by the XC90 winning North American Truck of the Year at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. The automaker also unveiled the new S90 at the show and has just released the available powertrains for the S90. Volvo will offer customers in the US with three engine choices: a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine from the T5, a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine from the T6, as well as a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter T8 Twin Engine.

The range-topping T8 Twin Engine has an electric drive system and has been confirmed to produce 410 horsepower, while the 2.0-liter from the T5 will make 240 hp and the engine from the T6 will generate 302 hp. Regardless of what kind of engine you opt for, all models will come with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Drivers that choose the beastly T8 Twin Engine will get a hybrid all-wheel-drive system to handle the engine and electric motor combination. Other S90s will come with front-wheel drive as standard with a mechanical all-wheel-drive system as an option. It looks like Volvo has really thought this through.
