  1. Following in the footsteps of the Volvo XC70 Cross Country, the Swedish automaker has revealed another wagon that isn't afraid to go off the beaten path. The 2015.5 Volvo V60 Cross Country will be debuting at 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show later this month. Compared to the standard V60, the V60 Cross Country features 2.6-inches more of ground clearance and a set of skid plates for the front and rear. Body modifications for the V60 Cross Country include side scuff plates, fender extensions, and exhaust outlets integrated into the rear bumper. A choice of either eighteen or nineteen-inch wheels finish off the exterior. Power will come from a turbocharged 2.5L inline-five producing 250 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. This will be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. "We are delighted to add the third true Cross Country model to our product portfolio. The successful combination of dynamic styling and rugged capability places the V60 Cross Country in a class of its own," said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars. The 2015.5 V60 Cross Country goes on sale in the first quarter of 2015. Source: Volvo William Maley is a staff writer for Cheers & Gears.

Press Release is on Page 2 Volvo Cars reveals new V60 Cross Country All-road, all-weather capability and rugged design V60 sporty driving feel with added 'go-anywhere' capability Extends Volvo's acclaimed Cross Country product line-up Important product for North American growth plan Volvo Cars will unveil the long-awaited V60 Cross Country at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show later this month. "We are delighted to add the third true Cross Country model to our product portfolio. The successful combination of dynamic styling and rugged capability places the V60 Cross Country in a class of its own," said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars. Heritage The Cross Country brand has a long and distinguished heritage. Volvo Cars was the first premium brand to offer increased all-road capability and styling on its wagons as far back as 1997 when it introduced the V70 Cross Country, creating a whole new type of car experience that has since captured the imagination of the motoring public. Reflecting Volvo's Scandinavian heritage and love of nature and adventure, the V60 Cross Country brings together the best of both worlds – a sporty, connected yet comfortable driving experience with the freedom to explore new horizons. Sporty capability "With ground clearance increased 65mm (2.6 inches) compared to the V60, the Cross Country's sturdy construction offers unparalleled control on and off the beaten track, coupled with an enhanced sporty driving experience thanks to torque vectoring technology and corner traction control. The V60 Cross Country really is a getaway car – enabling an adventurous lifestyle in pure rugged form," said Lex Kerssemakers. Offering new Cross Country 18" and 19" wheels, the V60 Cross Country comes with high profile tires, adding comfort and off-road aesthetics, reducing road noise and providing added wheel protection whether climbing curbs or negotiating rocky roads. The V60 Cross Country also comes standard with Hill Descent Control, which controls the car's speed automatically when driving down steep inclines. The Hill Descent Control function makes it possible for the driver to focus completely on driving when descending steep hills. The driver can control the speed with the brake pedal or the accelerator when Hill Descent Control is activated. Rugged individualist design Central to the Cross Country concept is the expression of go-anywhere capability and rugged design. It caters to those who have an active lifestyle, favoring the dirt road over the paved, handling either with ease. This is manifested in the V60 Cross Country through rugged design cues that enhance the adventurous nature of the car. With increased ground clearance, skid plates front and rear, side scuff plates and fender extenders, the V60 Cross Country conveys an imposing, muscular presence that underlies its capable nature, while integrated tailpipes reflect its sporty side. To complement the capable exterior styling, sports seats in black leather with distinctive brown stitching will be available from launch, while two new two-tone leather upholsteries will be offered in early 2015. Powertrains The US and Canada will get the first V60 Cross Country cars, and they will launch with Volvo's five-cylinder 250 hp gasoline engine with All-Wheel Drive coupled to an automatic transmission delivering a highly competitive 23 mpg.
