2015 VOLVO XC70: Volvo’s XC70 is on display at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, with bold new features. Major news is the introduction of Volvo’s new Drive-E technology. An all-new engine teamed with a new transmission and ECO+ functionality to deliver maximum fuel efficiency. Now offered with a choice of three distinct powertrains, XC70 continues to combine the ambience of a luxury car with premium wagon cargo flexibility and the adventuresome spirit of an off-road activity vehicle. Volvo’s trim level include the XC70 T5 Drive-E and 3.2 AWD, offered in base, Premier, and Platinum trims while the T6 AWD comes in Premier and Platinum. Volvo signature electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction is standard on the midrange XC70 3.2 AWD and T6 AWD. This employs a 3.2-liter naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine that delivers 240 horsepower. A 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine that puts out 300 horsepower is standard on T6 AWD. Teamed with an efficient six-speed “Geartronic” automatic transmission, All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction provides the best possible grip in all situations – on wet, slippery or completely dry roads. Volvo brought the XC70 into sharper focus last year with redesigned front and rear styling including a new grille with a bolder, wider proportion, a larger Iron mark, a wider lower intake and new bumpers projecting an enhanced horizontal stance. The changes included new headlights and LED daytime running lights, updated front and rear matte silver décor trim, rear skid plate décor and new taillight design. The XC70's versatile luggage compartment floor is equipped with aluminum rails and movable storage points to secure the load. With rear seat backs lowered, there is a large 36.5 cu.ft. of cargo room.
