2016 Volvo XC90 For Chicago Drivers

It has been 12 years since the popular Volvo XC90 first went on sale, and we haven't seen any major updates - until now. Volvo fans all across the United States, specifically in Chicago, Illinois, are very excited to get their hands on the new 2016 Volvo SUV. This SUV debuts an outstanding compliment of technology and is, according to the company themselves, the safest car it has ever built. Howard Orloff carries a fine selection of Volvo models and has been the premier dealership for Illinois and the Chicago area for over 50 years. Volvo has done an excellent job of updating the 2016 XC90 with modern-day conveniences. This seven-passenger luxury crossover SUV comes in three different trim levels: 'Momentum', 'R-Design' and 'Inscription'.

This Volvo SUV may seem like it has less power because of the use of a 4-cylinder engine, but fear not. With today's technology, Volvo is able to use 4-cylinders to get great gas mileage while maintaining impressive power. Chicago drivers will likely choose between two Drive-E engines (though a 3rd option could be offered). The base "T6 engine" manages 316 hp, while the top-of-the-range XC90 'Twin Engine - T8' combines a two-litre, four-cylinder supercharged and turbocharged gas engine with an electric motor and offers an unbeatable combination of power and clean operation - around 400 total horsepower. Normal driving for this AWD plug-in model is done in the default hybrid mode, utilizing an engine that powers the front wheels and an 80 hp electric motor that drives the rear wheels. These T8 models can also run on electricity (up to 25 miles) or gas alone.

Another feat that the new Volvo is offering is that it is one of the safest cars on the street. There are many new safety features that will be offered in the Spring of 2015 from Volvo. These include two world first safety technologies: a run-off road protection package and auto brake at intersection capability.

If you're into styling, you can bet that you'll be impressed by Volvo's latest upgrades. There are two style packages to choose from for the 2016 XC90. The Urban Luxury package combines a color coordinated body kit with polished stainless steel details, such as front deco frames, front and rear skid plates and side scuff plates. The 21-inch wheels complete the urban look. The Rugged Luxury kit enhances the toughness of the XC90 SUV with tech matte black exterior trim, stainless steel skid plates, running boards with illumination and integrated exhaust pipes. This version gets extra style points for its 22-inch wheels.

Illinois Volvo fans, there's a lot to look forward to with this new luxury SUV. And of course, if you're interested in buying a new Volvo, the price might come to mind. The 2016 Volvo XC90 price should start around at $48,900 but check our website for real time pricing.
