    Interesting find in my new Volvo 2018 VIN decoder. https://m.imgur.com/gallery/wY5sV Check out the second to last row and last column. It implies a T8 or 400 HP XC60 in the next 12 months. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk

    Unveiled: 2017 Volvo V90 Cross-Country

    The polestar upgrade in the XC90 gives you 330 HP instead of 316. I am sure the V90CC will give you the same option.

    The "Questions for Spectre" thread

    I could bug one of the techs at our Land Rover dealership, they have essentially the same engine as the Jags, but I can guarantee anything. The two techs I know the best have both left. One retired one moved onto another brand.

    Volvo cleared 70,000 sales in 2016 for a 24 plus percent increase. I think that 100,000 sales target might be a conservative goal for 2018.

    Well the cars are still designed in Sweden but merely built in China. The inscription S60 is just the American name for the long wheel base S60L that was developed specifically for the Chinese market. Volvo is all about low VOC in their interior materials and I have been in enough late model...
