Volvo XC60 Specials in Fredericksburg

Experience the Luxurious Versatility of the Volvo XC60

Volvo is known for creating high-end vehicles, and the XC60 is no exception. This is the smaller of their two crossovers, but it still offers more than enough room for the average person. You can easily seat five passengers in comfort inside the XC60 while they enjoy the standard leather seats that have driver's seat memory. With up to 67.4 cubic feet with the split rear seats folded down, there is room for everyone and everything.

Thanks to the recently revised engine lineup for the Volvo XC60, you get plenty of power and excellent efficiency. While those you pass by while in the XC60 won't know just how many features this vehicle has, they can appreciate the exterior styling with its bold grille and expressive headlights.

What Was Updated in the 2017 Volvo XC60?

You won't find many dramatic updates on the 2017 Volvo XC60. Volvo has plans for a complete redesign in the very near future, so they limited the changes somewhat for this model year. That being said, you will notice that the entire engine lineup has changed. In recent years, the Volvo XC60 has had a range of engines, including a 2.5-liter turbocharged 5-cylinder, a 3.0-liter turbocharged 6-cylinder, and a 3.2-liter 6-cylinder. For the 2017 model year, none of these are making a comeback. Instead, the XC60 gets the Drive-E engines found on many of the other Volvo models. The T5 engine is the base option and is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with a turbocharger that gives you 240 horsepower. The T6 takes this same engine to the next level with a supercharger as well and 300 horsepower. Since this engine provides seamless power to the bigger XC90, you will never feel a lack with the XC60.

Get a Glimpse of the Volvo XC60's History

The Volvo XC60 is only about a decade old. The automaker debuted the XC60 concept during the north American International Auto Show. The concept version had a bigger Volvo grille with a "V", a glass roof, an electronic liftgate, new shifting technology, and aesthetically appealing 20-inch wheels. The production version of the XC60 made its debut during the 2008 Geneva Motor Show and went on sale in Europe soon after. It didn't make it to North America until 2009 as a 2010 model year.

The XC60 built on the Volvo Y20 platform with some technology from the 2007 Land Rover Freelancer. During the early years of the Volvo XC60's history, it went through various 3.2-liter engines. They averaged about 240 horsepower and 320 pound-feet, and the XC60 quickly earned a reputation for its rugged drivability and styling. It also stood out in terms of safety with a long list of airbags, a collision warning system, and hill descent control among others. It also had City Safety from the start, a system that was at the time new and, like today, helped prevent collisions. Even then, it could automatically apply the brakes, something which Volvo was the first to offer as standard. The XC60 saw a significant redesign for 2014 although it wasn't a new generation. The front driving lights, taillights, grille, and exhaust were changed, as were interior trims.
