The 2017 Volvo V90 is a premium family wagon along with an equally as premium fee tag. You are a broke wagon lover, however likewise a patriot. The service is obvious.
We still don’t understand specifically exactly how a lot the S90/V90 pair will certainly expense in America, however I was told it will certainly be a lot more pricey compared to the outgoing S80 ($43,450). Volvo likewise says that despite exactly how lots of selections you tick, the S90/V90 can’t get hold of a lot more pricey compared to the top-of-the-line XC90 T8 hybrid SUV. Our guess? They need to begin somewhere in between an Audi A6 ($46,200) and a BMW 5 Collection ($50,200).
You will certainly get hold of very much for you money, featuring semi-autonomous features as standard, due to the fact that the S90 will certainly have the ability to accelerate, brake and steer at speeds up to 80 mph free of needing a vehicle to comply with in front. Neat.
But just what if you don’t have actually $50K, or probably don’t fancy an front/all-wheel drive car? Jalopnik reader and filmmaker Darwin Brandis went LS1 to get hold of his excellent Volvo V90.
The donor vehicle was a dealer loaner along with 200K+ about the clock, while the engine came from a beefed up GTO, packed along with aftermarket hardware. The guys at National rate merged both to ensure that Darwin could possibly wind up along with 500 HP street vehicle that has actually energy steering, A/C, cruise manage and an exhaust cutout for the utmost sleeper wagon experience. Overall price: method cheaper compared to a brand-new Volvo.
Twenty-3 MPG about the highway, if you’re basic about the noise. Not bad!
Also, Finland says hi!
