Volvo announced pricing of $36,775 for its segment defining cross country, the all-new Volvo XC70.
Flexing its muscles still further, for the first time the XC70 will be available with a six-cylinder engine: a 3.2 liter in-line drivetrain producing 235 horsepower and 236 lb.-ft. of torque. Further defining its versatility, the all-new XC70 introduces a height-adjustable booster cushion - an industry world’s first enhancing child safety.
Other highlights include a first-time Hill Descent Control, and a world-class sound system which contributes to a comfortable and pleasurable driving experience. These features, in addition to a myriad of safety and convenience adaptations from the recently introduced all-new Volvo S80, clearly illustrate the all-around personality of the all-new XC70.
The United States is Volvo’s largest market for the all new XC70, with approximately half of the projected 38,000 annual production coming to North America. Traditionally in the U.S., the XC70 has garnered a wide range of press acclaim including: Best All-Weather Wagon in New England; Best in Class wins at the Texas Truck Rodeo; Mudfest honors in the Pacific Northwest; and Best Overall Vehicle of the Rockies.
At $36,775 this cross country segment leader is a key player to Volvo cars’ lineup in the U.S. All-new Volvo XC70 sales in North America begin October 1, 2007.
