    Oh well, maybe if I want a Volvo, I should wait for the next S60R ? Guys when is that scheduled to come out ? Maybe I can get most of the goodies and a real Volvo, engine for the price I'm wanting to pay ?

    Rocky,

    I'm a little confused. You seem OK with an Acura RL or a S60R, but it seems that you don't want the S80 3.2 (6 cylinder). Is that true? Because you can get a fully loaded S80 3.2 for less than $53K. Am I missing something?
  • Options

    Currently, there are no firm plans for another S60R.

    Volvo can't hold a candle to GM in the giveaway dept.

    well, hell, i don't think ANYBODY can do that.

    I don't track GM rebates because they have nothing I want, but volvo can still get way up there ... what was the offer up to on S60Rs? $10k off? that's pretty darned hefty.

    My loaded S80 came to $57,000. I skipped the adaptive cruise control. Did you know that mud flaps are considered sporty? ;)

    One other Yamaha-built car engine - a DOHC Inline 6 in the much loved Toyota 2000GT of nearly 40 years ago.

    Didn't know that. Thanks!

    I only drove a few of them (not owned), but the SHO's engines, from what I know, were pretty impressive. Would eat a good bit of oil, but for those of us with Italian car backgrounds, de nada ;)

    The 3.2 would be like using a buncha Jack Russell Terrier's as your sled dogs. Get enough of em' you will move, but not very fast. ;) The V-8 is more on the line of a Husky, the appropriate size for the task. ;) If I'm spending that kind of money ($53K) I would assume the power-plant would be sufficient. The S60R uses a Turbo 5 cylinder, and has very good performance. It has 300 hp. and run 0-60 in 5.4 secs. ;)

    I'm not saying the Volvo S80 V-8 isn't worth every penny, because it's as good if not better than a loaded Caddy STS V-8 at that price. However I can get a Caddy STS V-8 with "deep discounts" and with as much if not more technology. #1 My GM discount + incentives. #2 Fly or drive to Dallas, and I could save a bundle by watching the specials, especially at the end of the model year.

    I'm not saying that is what I'm going to do, but I was very surprised the S80, crossed the $55K mark fully loaded, thus it makes it out of reach for me unless Volvo, has some sort of a "fire sale" or special "red-carpet" lease deal. I guess I could keep my eyes peeled. The way I look at it is if it were meant to be, I'll have one someday. ;) Maybe I'm meant to own something else ???? :)

    Volvomax,
    I know that for BMW, the Eurodelivery prices listed on the BMW website are MSRP, i.e. you can negotiate below those listed prices. Do you know whether the Volvo OSD prices "negotiable"?

    Thanks.

    Yes. There's a big dealer show in Las Vegas (or something like that) in early December. Demos should be available shortly after that. Still no brochures, but maybe early December.

    Hi:

    For 2007 S80, dose anyone hear anything (rumor, car magazine,..etc) that Volvo will bring in AWD for I6 at least as an option? I live in northeast US, AWD will be very much a "safety feature". I checked with Volvo HQ, they said nothing about "future plan". But Europe, and even Canada got I6 AWD, why can't US? Is this just a marketing thing?

    V8 is a bit too rich for me as a family car..
  • Options
    rockyleerockylee Member Posts: 14,014
    I'll let our expert Volvomax answer that one if he has a answer.

    volvomaxvolvomax Member Posts: 5,238
    I would expect the AWD in the I6, but maybe not till next model year.
    Volvo is trying to keep the cost down, and see how well the 3.2 is recieved before they spring for an AWD version.
    The previous S80 was available in AWD and sold poorly, even in the mountain states.
  • Options
    lansdownemikelansdownemike Member Posts: 54
    Funny you should ask. There was a Volvo press release today, I'm not sure in which country, that says that the 3.2 AWD will be available from now on. See:

    Sounded like Britain (petrol, 175 kW output, torque of up to 80 Newton metres ...). But it did say: "The model will be available on all markets, but we expect Sweden, Canada and Switzerland to be the biggest markets, followed by Russia, Finland and Germany."

    Thank you all for the info on 3.2 AWD. www.volvocanada.com already has 3.2 AWD on list, while Volvo UK hasn't shown this yet..

    Another thing I am curious about will be the side impact score by IIHS on this new s80. Volvo always has top numbers on front and rear impact (www.iihs.org). But both 2007 s40 & s60 have only "acceptable" ratings on side-impact that made them miss "Top Safety Pick 2007" by the institute (Volvo got XC90 on this list). s80 never had side impact tested by IIHS before. As a Volvo fan, I wish the new s80 will pass it with flying colors..
  • Options
    volvomaxvolvomax Member Posts: 5,238
    Actually, the original S80 was the first car to geta 5 star rating in both the front and side test by IIHS.
    Volvo says the new S80 should easily live up to that standard.

    Just got a 6-page glossy brochure in the mail. Contains an offer for a free "emergency kit" if you test the car by 1/1/7. Could the car itself be far behind?

    What, a free car? I doubt it :P

    I'm surprised that they're offering test drive promotions on a vehicle that's not yet in stock.

    Just got back from the S80 ride and drive.
    The new car is a quantum improvement over the old one.
    I was even impressed with the 3.2.
    The V8 stole the show, in the hands of a professional it is a very competent road car.
    The active crusie control took some getting used to, not sure that I really would want it.

    VM, tell us more. Is the BLIS useful in practice? Was the GPS popup display annoying? What kinds of people would be comfortable with which options?
  • Options
    volvomaxvolvomax Member Posts: 5,238
    Personally, I don't find the BLIS useful, but others may.
    I'm used to properly setting up my mirrors. Most people don't. The mirrors are always pointing right behind the car, which is not what they are for.
    As for the GPS, I find the displays in other cars, that are buried in the center console to be annoying. You have to take your eyes off the road to see them. Having the display at eye level is easier for me, and it is safer for everyone.

    For me, the Personal Car Communicator would be the cat's meow! :shades: Did you get to try it out? Can it really detect heartbeat if someone is hiding in the car? What's the range of the thing? Can I be upstairs in a highrise office tower and check if my car is locked and armed?
  • Options
    lansdownemikelansdownemike Member Posts: 54
    This is a beautiful ride. The local dealer got its first S80, a vanilla 3.2, and even without any gadgets or enhancements, it's a really fine car. Comfortable, a very classy design, improved exterior. Next week he's expecting a loaded V8, and I will expect a call!
  • Options
    volvomaxvolvomax Member Posts: 5,238
    the range is about 300 ft.
    The alarm has to be set off in order to detect a heartbeat.
    Yes, it really does work! :D
