2015 Volvo XC90

The new XC90 isn't just about the new XC90 – it's as much about the new generation of Volvos that will result. Around the turn of the millennium, Volvo seemed like the perfect automaker to make a crossover. It had, after all, already established for itself a reputation for building all-wheel-drive wagons for transporting families in safety and comfort.

    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 ...

    Report: Volvo to cut models, V50 first confirmed
    1296162120

    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'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 ...

    Automotive News is dishing on Volvo's product lineup plans between now and 2010. The newly released second-generation S80 won't see any major changes, nor will the new 70-series wagons, the C70, or the C30.
