For immediate release
More power, sophisticated all-wheel-drive, new refinement
plus new XC90 highlight 2003 models from Volvo
A horsepower boost for seven popular Volvo models, extended availability of the sophisticated Haldex all-wheel-drive system, enhanced audio offerings and a host of other new features plus the addition of the first Volvo SUV to the model line will make 2003 one of the busiest years for new Volvo products in recent history.
The new Volvo XC90 will steal the spotlight in the busy luxury sport utility vehicle segment when it reaches retailers' showrooms this fall. The next generation SUV with seating for seven passengers, industry-leading safety features and an aggressive starting price of $54,995, the 2003 Volvo XC90 is sure to carve out a share of the growing segment. The XC90 is built on the company's acclaimed large car platform.
Standard equipment in the new Volvo XC90 2.5T will include turbocharged 5-cylinder engine and 5-speed automatic transmission, Haldex electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system and the newly-developed Roll Over Protection System (ROPS), including a sophisticated computer-controlled system called Roll Stability Control (RSC), which helps reduce the risk of rolling over.
The line-topping Volvo XC90 T6 has a suggested list price of $59,995 and features a twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine and a long list of luxury and convenience features in addition to the extensive standard safety equipment.
Other changes for 2003 include:
