    Video: Volvo demos autonomous self-parking car concept
    1371754740

    A number of companies are developing autonomous vehicle technology – Google and Audi come to mind – but Volvo is applying its work in the area to a particular usage case: parking. The Swedish automaker has the technology up and running in a concept vehicle, which it says can be dropped off at the curb by its owner and left to its own devices ...

    Spy Shots: 2015 Volvo XC90 mule spotted testing in the snow
    1363872420

    The Volvo XC90 was a big step for the Swedish automaker in 2003, but the midsize crossover has changed very little since its introduction. All that's about to change as Volvo starts its initial development on the 2015 XC90, which we see for the first time in these spy shots showing a cobbled-together XC70. Like the current XC90, the next-generation model ...

    1358363640

    There's not a whole lot of life left in the current Volvo XC90, but it seems a replacement is on the way. According to What Car?, Volvo will launch its new flagship crossover sometime in 2014, riding on an all new platform that will eventually underpin several models in the company's range. According to Volvo boss Hakan Samuelsson, this new architecture ...

    Frank and Heather Laudo got a surprise recently as they drove by the Northwest Regional Airport in Roanoke, Texas. The couple's Volvo XC90 was struck by a small aircraft coming in for a landing.

    Report: Volvo XC90 to become Geely
    1337292060

    Volvo recently unveiled yet another model year of the impossibly old XC90 – promised to be the final one before a complete redesign. But the overripe vintage of the first SUV to fall from Volvo's vine isn't stopping corporate parent Geely from absconding with the platform to launch a new high-end brand for China. According to China Car Times, ...

    Official: Volvo releases details on ever-so-slightly updated 2013 XC90
    1336168680

    It's hard to believe that the Volvo XC90 has been on the market since 2003. That's 10 model years ago, predating our own existence as a website. Even the XC90 mid-cycle refresh that happened in 2007 seems like an eternity ago. So it stands to reason that for 2013 Volvo would introduce... yet another year of the same old thing. Well, not exactly. The 2013 ...

The Swedish automaker has released a volley of design sketches that portray the variety of directions that the company could take with the popular crossover once it goes under the knife.

    Official: Volvo XC90 gets modest tweaks for 2012
    1315330200

    The Volvo XC90 has always been a strong seller, and apparently the Swedish automaker sees no reason to rock the boat with a full-scale retooling of the luxury crossover. Still, that doesn't mean an update wouldn't breathe a bit of fresh air into the XC90 – and by our clock, it's (over)due for a freshening, as the segment stalwart is entering its ...

    eBay Find of the Day: Caresto T6 Roadster, 2004 Hot Rod of the Year [w/video]
    1314387000

    We have something of a hard time applying the term "hot rod" to the Caresto T6 R. The unusual Volvo-based retro one-off has simply transcended the art. Whereas most builders start with chassis manufactured by one of the illustrious Big Three, the T6 R is a clean-sheet design with a mid-engine turbocharged I6 swiped from the XC90 that puts power to the ...

    Peter Ronchetti is the general manager of Legoland in California. He drives a Volvo XC60, but the Legoland staff decided he should jump up to the XC90. Seeing as the Legoland staff is rather skilled at turning interlocking plastic bricks into art, they decided to give Ronchetti a full-size Volvo. Sort of... The result is one amazing, and lighthearted, ...

    Report: Volvo to cut models, V50 first confirmed

    Volvo wants to increase the number of units it sells each year in the U.S. So, it's going to... um... cut the number of models it offers? It may seem a little bass-ackwards to those of us without a business degree, but that's apparently the plan. Says Doug Speck, head of Volvo's operations in the U.S., "Five or six [models] is probably a good number... ...

    It's a refrain that two-box enthusiasts have to be tired of hearing, but proper station wagons apparently remain a really hard sell in America. The latest casualty appears to be segment-stalwart Volvo, which, according to a leaked dealer document from an AB tipster (click here to view), is apparently giving up on its V70 estate in the U.S. As noted in a ...

Long a sponsor of Red Sox baseball, Volvo's rolled out a special edition of its stubby C30. The Kammback hatch comes with a factory-fitted Team logo stuck to the glass of the rear hatch, ...
