Volvo has announced the V60 Sportwagon will be offered in the United States with three different engines.
The entry-level model will be equipped with a 2.0-liter T5 four-cylinder engine that produces 240 bhp (179 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. The mid-level model will have all-wheel drive and a 2.5-liter T5 five-cylinder which churns out 250 bhp (186 kW) and 266 lb-ft (360 Nm) of torque. Last but not least, the range-topping V60 R-Design will have all-wheel drive and a 3.0-liter T6 six-cylinder engine that produces 325 bhp (242 kW) and 354 lb-ft (479 Nm) of torque.
According to Volvo Cars of North America President and CEO, John Maloney, “This is an exciting time of transformation for Volvo and shows our Swedish heart is beating strongly." He added, "The V60 signifies our first step in a gradual move toward powerful, highly efficient, four-cylinder engines across the entire portfolio of our vehicles.”
The V60 will arrive at U.S. dealerships in January and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
