Volvo announces engines for US V60 Wagon

The V60 will be available with a choice of 3 engines in the US.

-2.0 Liter Turbo with 240hp. First engine of their new Drive-E family. Available only in FWD models.
-2.5 Liter Turbo with 250HP. This is the base engine for AWD model-
-3.0 Liter V6 with 325HP. AWD only.

The 2.0 is an all new engine. Soon, both the 2.5 and 3.0 engines will also be replaced by the new Drive-E family of engines.

The V60 goes on sale in January in the US.
I have seen a few in Europe over the years, and all I can say is that it looks great in person.

I'm still pissed about the whole Chinese ownership thing. Incompetent Swedes.

But I must say that this looks rather beautiful.

Whatever happened to Scandinavian design?

They've been using the same interior with the "waterfall" centre console for years.

It always looked cheap, grey, and dull. Now it looks cheap, grey, dull, and dated. Compare and contrast to the i3 interior, or the Cactus, or just about any recent car.

It's not a cheap car, why does it have to look so depressing on the inside?

Great to know that SOMEONE is bringing the wagon back.

Time for them to redesign the interior. I quite dislike the dash design...
