The 2018 Volvo XC60 is is completely redesigned this year, offering all that has made this line a favorite for years, but adding a wide range of luxury features, new engines, and more. The all-new XC60 has raised the bar this year, and we're going to look at some of the new features for the 2018 model available at Volvo Cars of Dayton.


Power & Driving

One of the big new features in the 2018 XC60 is its engine lineup. Sharing engines with the larger XC90, the XC60 is available with a 2.0l turbo, a supercharged variant of the same engine, and a hybrid model. These are designated T5, T6, and T8, respectively. The T5 offers plenty of acceleration, and is also quite efficient, but the T6 truly impresses with more than 60 additional horsepower with a cost of only 1 mpg over the T5. This will have Centerville owners feeling confident on the highway, and adds to the Volvo XC60's luxury feel.

Meanwhile, the T8 is a great spin on hybrid technology, using the electric motors to power the rear wheels while focusing the T6's engine on just the front. This results in a full 84 horsepower boost to a total 400 horsepower and 472 lb. ft. of torque. That is some serious power, and it comes while improving fuel efficiency. Volvo has really pushed hybrid technology forward with the 2018 XC60 T8, bringing impressive performance through smart implementation.

And while the luxury seats envelop you after a hard day's work, there are also advanced safety features standard across the range to keep drivers safe and in control on the road. From adaptive cruise control to collision detection and avoidance, owners of the 2018 Volvo XC60 will feel confident knowing Volvo has a singular focus on driver and passenger safety.
