Volvo V60 XC Coming to USA In February With AWD and T5 Turbo; Pricing From $38,000

First details today on the newest Volvo – a US-bound V60 Cross Country!

The new V60 XC is a tough and rugged version of the V60 sportwagen, and will ship to the US with standard AWD and the 250-horsepower T5 engine.

Some have asked if the V60 Cross Country is necessary, considering the presence of the XC60 SUV in the lineup. There is certainly some overlap, but the V60 XC will appeal to a sportier customer and have pricing a few thousand less than the taller XC60 SUV.

More models are a good thing for Volvo in the US – where it makes sense to bring over almost everything the company makes in an effort to appeal to various buyer niches. Think of the V60 XC as an Audi A4 Allroad competitor, and the XC60 as a Q5 competitor.

Timeframes for US delivery and official pricing are not yet available, but we expect it to arrive by January or February of 2015 as a 2015.5 model.

Current V60 pricing ranges from $36,000 to $46,000, with performance from the T6 engine that delivers 325-horsepower and sprint pace of 4.9-seconds to 60-mph.

Volvo Cars reveals new V60 Cross Country

 

  • All-road, all-weather capability and rugged design

  • V60 sporty driving feel with added ‘go-anywhere’ capability

  • Extends Volvo’s acclaimed Cross Country product line-up

  • Important product for North American growth plan

 

Volvo Cars unveils the long-awaited Cross Country version of its successful V60 sportswagon at the 2014 LA Motor Show this month.

 

“We are delighted to add the third true Cross Country model to our product portfolio. The successful combination of dynamic styling and rugged capability places the V60 Cross Country in a class of its own,” said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars.

 

Heritage

The Cross Country brand has a long and distinguished heritage. Volvo Cars was the first premium brand to offer increased all-road capability and styling on its wagons as far back as 1997 when it introduced the V70 Cross Country, creating a whole new type of car experience that has since captured the imagination of the motoring public.

 

Reflecting Volvo’s Scandinavian heritage and love of nature and adventure, the V60 Cross Country brings together the best of both worlds – a sporty, connected yet comfortable driving experience with the freedom to explore new horizons.

Sporty capability

“With ground clearance increased 65mm compared to the V60, the Cross Country’s sturdy construction offers unparalleled control on and off the beaten track, coupled with an enhanced sporty driving experience thanks to torque vectoring technology and corner traction control. The V60 Cross Country really is a getaway car – enabling an adventurous lifestyle in pure rugged form,” said Lex Kerssemakers.

 

Offering new Cross Country 18” and 19” wheels, the V60 Cross Country comes with high profile tyres, adding comfort and off-road aesthetics, reducing road noise and providing added wheel protection whether climbing kerbs or negotiating rocky roads.

Rugged individualist design

Central to the Cross Country concept is the expression of go-anywhere capability and rugged design. It caters to those who have an active lifestyle, favouring the dirt road over the paved, handling either with ease. This is manifested in the V60 Cross Country through explicit design cues that heighten the adventurous nature of the car.

With increased ground clearance, skid plates front and rear, side scuff plates and fender extenders, the V60 Cross Country conveys an imposing, muscular presence that underlies its capable nature, while integrated tailpipes reflect its sporty dark side.

To complement the capable exterior styling, sports seats in black leather with distinctive brown stitching will be available from launch, while two new two-tone leather upholsteries will be offered to coincide with the EU and Rest of World Launch in early 2015.

Powertrains

The US and Canada will get the first V60 Cross Country cars, and they will launch with Volvo’s iconic five cylinder 250 hp petrol engine with All-Wheel Drive coupled to an automatic transmission delivering a highly competitive 23 mpg.

 

Drive-E power

Volvo’s new class-leading Drive-E four-cylinder diesel and petrol engines, which will be available in the V60 Cross Country globally in early 2015, will be the base for the Front-Wheel Drive variant, while the proven five-cylinder D4 powertrain will provide the power for the All-Wheel Drive variant.
