Overview

The XC90 is Volvo's midsize SUV. Introduced in 2003, it was one of the pioneers of the car-based crossover market. It provides many luxury features as standard equipment, and offers several detailed option packages. The XC90 is a 7-seater, and Bluetooth and satellite radio are newly standard for 2011.

The 2011 Volvo XC90 comes in two trims featuring an inline 6-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive (with all-wheel drive(AWD) optional), and one that features a V-8 engine with standard AWD. The entry-level XC90 3.2 includes 18-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control, sunroof, and a full range of power accessories (including power front seats), plus an 8-speaker sound system. The XC90 3.2 R-Design trim steps up to 19-inch wheels, sport suspension and steering, upgraded upholstery, and special exterior ornamentation. With it, the Dynamic option package adds 20-inch wheels and adaptive bi-xenon headlights.

The 2011 Volvo XC90 V8 adds the more powerful engine and standard AWD; it provides 18-inch wheels with 19-inch wheels optional. The Climate option package addresses cold-weather issues; the Multimedia package includes a navigation system, upgraded sound system, and satellite radio. The V8 trim qualifies for the Luxury option package, which provides a long list of other upgrades.

Standard on the 2011 Volvo XC90 3.2 and 3.2 R-Design is a 240-horsepower, 3.2-liter, inline 6-cylinder engine that delivers 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The XC90 V8 features a 311-horsepower, 4.4-liter V-8 engine that produces 325 lb.-ft. of torque and delivers 14 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.
