It's sometimes hard to understand why automakers announce engines before it's put into whatever new model it's intended for. Since many new engines are put into facelifted versions of older models, it's kind of like saying, "Don't buy this car yet, because it's about to get more powerful and more fuel efficient."
As a fan of current Volvos, with the fat inline turbo six and the good ol' warbling T5, I'm sad the company has chosen an all-four-cylinder path moving forward all in the name of weight-savings and fuel economy. My eyes rolled even more this week when they announced the new range of four-cylinder engines would be called the Drive-E range. Stupid, stupid made-up name. It also sounds like an adjective, not a noun.
