Rockleigh, N.J. - (July 10, 2012) - Volvo Cars of North America, LLC (VCNA) released pricing for its 2013 model year lineup today. The announcement highlights Volvo's commitment to offer customers outstanding value across its full range of cars, crossovers and SUVs.
For 2013, the S60 lineup starts at $31,750 for the front-drive T5, while the turbocharged T6 AWD lists for $40,450. For the first time, Volvo's All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction is available on the value-leading S60 T5. Providing the best possible grip in all situations - on wet, slippery or completely dry roads - All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction can be added to any S60 T5 as a stand-alone $2,000 option. Additionally, the T5 engine receives upgrades for better drivability and to improve overall performance.
Introduced last year to the delight of enthusiasts, the S60 T6 R-Design returns for 2013. With the most powerful six-cylinder currently offered by Volvo, the R-Design's 3.0-liter turbocharged engine puts out a remarkable 325 horsepower and a stout 354 lb.-ft. of torque. The S60 T6 R-Design AWD lists for $43,900.
Released earlier this year, the popular XC90 received a boldly refreshed look. The base XC90 3.2 starts at $39,500. A fully color-coordinated exterior makes the XC90 look sleeker and lower to the ground. Design elements include new body color front and rear bumpers, sill moldings and wheel arches. Enhancing the visual magnetism are new standard LED daytime running lights and taillights.
As in the past, each trim level contains previously available optional equipment that has been grouped together based on historical customer preference for pairing of specific features. Three trim levels, Premier, Premier Plus and Platinum builds upon the previous. Each model remains available without the new trim levels. Customers retain the flexibility to select stand-alone option packages as well as single options.
Two new safety features make their debut on the Technology Package for 2013. Active High Beam automatically switches the headlights to low beam when opposite traffic is detected. Road Sign Information (RSI) displays traffic speed signs for the driver on the instrument cluster based on the Forward Looking Camera (FLC).
The Technology Package is optional on all XC60s. The XC60 T6 R-Design AWD starts at $44,650, while prices begin at $34,200 for the front-drive 3.2. A new optional package for XC60 features the Power Tailgate and Rear Park Assist Camera.
Volvo's flagship S80 luxury sedan and the XC70 crossover start at $38,950 and $33,450, respectively. Armed with youthful spirit, the C30 is as fun to drive as it is to admire. The new Premier trim level debuts for 2013. To the extensive list of standard features, the Premier trim adds a power glass sunroof, power driver's seat with memory and soft loadcover. With a starting price of just $25,500, the C30 remains the most attainable Volvo.
