If Volvo ever wanted to take its automobile company over to the next level, now is the perfect time for that. With the release of their latest 2016 Volvo XC90, this franchise is more than willing to allow its cars talk for themselves. It is of no doubt that this 2016 model of XC90 might be one of the best SUVs in its time. Its predecessor, the 2015 model, was a page-turner for this company. However, this current 2016 model has taken it to a notch higher than any of its contemporaries.
Not only does it provide a great engine with high performance specs and quantifiable fuel economy, it also makes sure that the design is fresh and accommodates extra effort from the automakers. Excellent features cover this vehicle, starting from its interior configuration and up to its new alloy wheels. So, let’s take a look at some of its amazing features.
2016 Volvo XC90 New Engine Specs
It is good to keep things simple. Instead of providing multiple engine options for a single SUV, Volvo has taken the liberty to provide just a single power train for this 2016 Volvo XC90. This power train is well equipped, and consists of a Turbo charged inline 4 cylinder gasoline unit. Maximum power output stands at 316 HP. Having said that, Volvo might be looking to expand itself in to hybrid car technology. So there are chances that this engine will be coupled with an electric motor, thereby making a separate hybrid engine unit. The max power output for this configuration is around 400 HP.
This engine unit will be mated with an all-wheel drive train spec for better handling and control. Acceleration seems good, with a range of 0 – 60 MPH in just under 6.5 seconds.

The new chassis for 2016 Volvo XC90 will be constructed entirely out of a new platform – Volvo’s Scalable Product platform. This is a new platform for Volvo, and it has turned out to be great in concept images.
