Volvo's 90th birthday falls on the month of the New York auto show, just days away from opening, and the Swedish marque will use the show to introduce the all-new XC60 to North America after its debut at the Geneva motor show earlier this year.
2018 Volvo XC60-Engines Announced Ahead of New York Appearance
The completely redesigned XC60 will go on sale in the U.S. in late summer, and ahead of its New York appearance, Volvo has detailed the engines that it will offer stateside. In T5 guise, the XC60 will use a turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 250 hp, while the T6 flavor will offer a turbocharged and supercharged unit good for 316 hp. Volvo plans to offer a range-topping hybrid powerplant on top of those two as well, in the form of the plug-in gasoline-electric T8 unit good for 400 hp.
That'll be a pretty big leap over the engines offered in the outgoing XC60, which has been on the shelf a little too long. Volvo will also offer a diesel version of the XC60 in other markets ranging in output from 190 to 235 hp, but we won't see them here, despite diesel making an unlikely comeback in the lineups of some European marques.
