2016 Volvo XC90

Post your wish list, comments, questions and thoughts right here about the up-coming 2016 Volvo XC90, which will debut in 2014/Q4 as a 2015 MY or in 2015/Q2 or Q3 as a 2016 MY, depending on the rumor you hear; my best guess is 2015/June-July +/- as a 2016 MY.

Below you will find a couple articles and a few videos of Volvo concept design studies (Volvo Concept XC90 Coupe revealed @ the 2014 Detroit AS, and the Volvo Concept Estate revealed @ the 2014 Geneva AS) that will wet our appetites with design elements and feature content that will ultimately make it to production to some degree for the next XC90 and V70 Wagon.

    @ushy66, looks like it's going to be a 2015 now.

    "The all-new interior of the 2015 Volvo XC90 was revealed on Tuesday, with a full debut of the seven-passenger SUV set for August. Pricing and launch timing were not announced."

    The centerpiece of the redesigned interior is a tablet-like touchscreen control console that is "virtually button free," the automaker said.

    More Detail on 2015/2016 XC 90 Infotainment System

    The large portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment system/display, was first introduced in a production model by Tesla in the Model S, and now a variation of that large (not quite as large as Tesla's on the Model S or future Model X) infotainment system/display form factor will be offered in the 2015/2016 XC 90. A protoype of this was first show-cased at the 2014 Geneva Autoshow two months ago, and described in a previous post regarding Apple's CarPlay in Volvo and other brands; this type of large vertically oriented touchscreen infotainment system will very likely find it's way to many new models from many auto manufactures in the future.

    "The new High Performance Drive-E Powertrain Concept makes use of the same basic 2.0-liter four-cylinder and includes two parallel turbochargers. A third, electrically powered turbo-compressor is used to feed the two traditional turbochargers.

    In the end, the powertrain is good for a whopping 450 hp, which is as much power as a C7 Corvette Stingray."
