After the redesigned Volvo XC90 debuted in 2016, a lot of people began to wonder about the fate of the aging XC60. After much anticipation, the all-new 2018 Volvo XC60 will debut at the 2017 New York International Auto Show.
Using Volvo’s new Scalable Product Architecture, the XC60 will have a lot of similar design cues as the XC90, but it will be smaller in stature. Like its bigger brother, the 2018 XC60 will have several (three to be exact) engines to choose from. The T5 trim will come with a turbocharged four-cylinder making 250 horsepower, while the T6 will be a turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder totaling 316 horsepower. If customers really want to get sucked back into their seats, they can opt for the T8 trim with a twin engine plug-in electric hybrid producing a 400 horsepower. The T8 XC60 will reportedly hit 62 mph in 5.3 seconds.
Production of the all-new 2018 Volvo XC60 will begin in mid-April and the debut is scheduled to take place at the 2017 New York International Auto Show on April 12th, 2017.
Volvo will also be celebrating their 90th year of production by bringing along restored classic Volvos to the 2017 New York International Auto Show...in addition, hopefully, to a little champagne toast.
