2018 Volvo XC60 Release Date – Volvo’s second-generation XC60 crossover, caught screening in Amsterdam putting on Playskool-like plastic body cladding as well as camouflage disguising its outside. The XC60 is Volvo’s mid-size two-row SUV, slotting in below the range-topping XC90 and also over the upcoming XC40 compact. On sale considering that 2010, today’s design is among the oldest Volvos in the array and is due for an upgrade.
No high-end brand can be successful without crossovers. The new XC90 is a remarkable item, and also its freshness stands in stark contrast to the current XC60’s oldness. This brand-new variation of the latter will sit a lot more pleasantly beside the XC90 in display rooms and must grab much more buyers with its reduced price while continuouslying carry the torch for Volvo’s popular safety and security expertise and smartly straightforward style visual.
2018 Volvo XC60 Redesign
The 2018 Volvo XC60 will not just comfy as much as the XC90 in display rooms; the two share similar bones. That skeleton is Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) modular system, which could support gas, hybrid, plug-in-hybrid, and even full-electric powertrains. Its flexibility permits it to underpin the XC90 (in addition to the new S90 sedan and also V90 wagon) along with the smaller sized XC60.
It’s tough to tell just what the XC60 could appear like– Volvo’s camouflage game is solid on this model– however anticipate its seek to split the difference between the elegant 90-series models as well as the obviously rather funky 40-series compacts yet to make their launching in manufacturing type. Some aspects will not be a total shock, certainly– even with this test vehicle’s whitewash, we can spot the brand’s trademark Thor’s Hammer LED front lights flourish and also tall, hot taillights. This being a new Volvo, security equipment and modern technology will sign up high on the automobile’s functions checklist. Expect some variant on the XC90’s portrait-oriented touchscreen display screen, too.
2018 Volvo XC60 Engine
Having dedicated to marketing autos with three- or four-cylinder power exclusively, Volvo has actually taken a big amount of the uncertainty out of determining its future models’ powertrain secrets. The 2018 Volvo XC60 therefore will certainly use the very same Drive-E four-cylinder engine that is located in basically each Volvo on sale today. In fact, we would not be surprised if the brand-new XC60 debuts with the similar engines as its precursor, which comes requirement with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (the T5 variation) and an optional turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter engine (T6). A turbocharged inline-five also becomes part of the outgoing XC60’s engine mix, but it won’t proceed. Last outcomes are up in the air, however expect at the very least 240 horse power for the T5 and more than 300 hp for the T6. An eight-speed automated once again will provide power to the front or, optionally, to all 4 wheels. Later on, Volvo will probably include a crossbreed and/or plug-in-hybrid option too.
Remove this XC60 prototype’s treatments, and also we wager you ‘d locate a nearly-ready-for-sale crossover. Without a doubt, we expect the 2018 Volvo XC60 to find to market following year as a 2018 version, with a base price near the $41,945 asked for today’s variation.
