Volvo's refreshed '07 XC90 to get new 3.2-liter

AutoWeek | Published 03/28/06, 5:30 pm et

Volvo is applying some nip and tuck work to its XC90 ute for the 2007 model year.

While the refreshed vehicle will retain much of its current exterior look, changes include slight modifications to the front and rear bumper areas, with brushed metal-look sill plates adding a touch of brightwork. The vehicle’s front and rear taillamps have also received a slight makeover.

Inside, the interior has been reworked in an effort to up the luxury ante and help it better compete with the upscale competition.

Under hood, Volvo’s new 235-hp, 3.2-liter in-line six cylinder engine, first seen in the second-generation S80 shown at the recent Geneva motor show, will be added to the engine option list. The new engine will likely spell the demise of the XC90’s 2.5-liter, five-cylinder turbo base powertrain.

No word yet on when the vehicle will debut on a show stand, but don’t be surprised to see it on a turntable soon and in showrooms later this year.

What it really needs more is a lower step-in height and vastly improved 2nd/3rd row passenger room-its as bad as the Jeep Commander.

Damnit, now my parents are going to start wanting to buy one.

(Ew, messy sentence... that that make sense?)

While respectable power for its displacement, the XC90 needs more power than that. I like the new wood though.
