The redesigned 2018 Volvo XC60 two-row SUV is available in three options: the 3.2 offers a 3.2-liter inline-six cylinder engine that generates a 240 horsepower; the T6 is equipped with a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 that delivers 300 horsepower; and the R-Design pushes 325 hp. Front-wheel drive is standard on the 3.2, with all-wheel drive optional. The T6 comes with all-wheel drive standard. All XC60s feature a six-speed automatic with manual shift control. The XC60 T6 accelerates from 0-to-60 miles-per-hour in about seven seconds. There’s also a new Volvo XC60 Plug-in Hybrid, which combines a supercharged, four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery.

Standard features on the 3.2 include alloy wheels, a power driver seat, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and iPod control. The T6 adds the turbocharged engine, leather upholstery and a power passenger seat. The T6 R-Design adds 20-inch wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, sport-tuned suspension and steering, a panoramic sunroof, privacy glass and special styling elements. Options include heated front and rear seats, a power liftgate, parking sensors, keyless ignition/entry, a navigation system, a 360-degree back-up camera and Volvo’s integrated child booster seats.

The XC60 ranges from $41,500 MSRP for the base 3.2 to $48,700 for the top-of-the-line T6. The T8 Plug-in Hybrid starts at $52,900.

Located at the corner of Lemmon Avenue and Inwood Road near Dallas Love Field, Park Place Volvo has repeatedly been recognized with the Volvo President’s Club award, which recognizes the top Volvo dealers in the country for exceptional customer service and superior sales and service performance.
