Volvo engineers must be wizards because their new Twin Engine drivetrain translates to the top of the range XC90 T8 having 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque with CO2 emissions of around 60 g/km. That's better than the Prius and its 91 g/km of emissions.
The 2015 Volvo XC90 will be available with a variety of gas and diesel engines they call the Drive-E engine range. All of them are four-cylinders. If you prefer gasoline, the T6 will offer 320 horsepower and 295 pound-feet while the base T5 produces 254 horsepower and 258 pound-feet.
Diesel lovers can get the D5 with 225 horses and 346 pound-feet, or the most economical D4 with 190 horsepower and 295 pound-feet. The latter translates to 47 miles per gallon (European combined cycle) while still having the best interior we've seen in a long time.
