The latest lean mean Swede machine will be priced at $45,395, "well-equipped". While Volvo has not officially equated the term "well-equipped" with "ships standard with Swedish bikini team in the trunk", they do inform us that the XC90 will be packing a 4.4 liter V8 (a first for the car maker) putting down 311 hp and 325 ft/lbs of grunt. Paired with a 6 speed automatic AWD transmission, the new SUV is expected to meet stringent ULEV II emissions standards. At nearly $8,000 less than an X5 4.4, Volvo is expected to give BMW a run for its Deutschemarks in bang for the buck.
