2021 Volvo XC90: Luxury Midsize Family SUV for Sale in Chicago

Luxury. Practicality. Performance. These aren't mutually exclusive in the 2021 Volvo XC90. With its spacious and upscale cabin, versatile passenger and cargo accommodations, and three potent powerplant options, the XC90 is perfect for discerning Chicago-area drivers seeking maximum driving enjoyment from a family vehicle.

What's New for 2021?

The 2021 XC90 continues its successful second generation with a new naming convention for its plug-in hybrid powertrain. To maintain continuity across Volvo's hybrid and electric initiatives, T8 models have been renamed to Recharge.

The new model year also sees more features added to the base Momentum trim level. Newly standard amenities include steering-adaptive LED headlights, power-folding, auto-dimming mirrors, front parking sensors, and a wireless charging pad. XC90 T6 and Recharge models also add leather upholstery and integrated Sensus navigation to the base trim


Despite its larger dimensions, the XC90 charges forward with confidence thanks to three robust powertrain variants. Each variant is based on a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

  • T5: The standard engine sends 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels. All-wheel-drive is an available option.

  • T6: By adding a supercharger to the mix, T6 models increase their output to 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel-drive is standard.

  • Recharge: This plug-in hybrid adds a pair of rear-axle electric motors to the T6's twincharged powertrain, generating an immense 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque. XC90 Recharge comes standard with all-wheel-drive and has an all-electric range of 18-miles.

In-Vehicle Technology

With Volvo's Sensus infotainment system, Bucktown drivers can conveniently and safely access useful smartphone functions via the 9-inch central touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto seamlessly integrate features like hands-free calling and messaging, streaming media, your music library, Google and Apple maps, traffic data, weather, and more.

The XC90's Adaptive Digital Display makes driving even safer by placing essential information directly behind the steering. The configurable 12.3-inch high-resolution TFT screen shows you standard driving data, as well as driver aid status, navigation directions, and infotainment details.


Inside the XC90's spacious and inviting cabin, you won't find a cluttered dash with all manner of knobs and switches. Nor will you find gaudy over-compensating design elements; just an ultra-refined, minimalist-inspired blend of luxury, integrated technology, sophisticated style. The XC90 also offers an array of comfort and convenience enhancements across its lineup. Standard amenities include four-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, a hands-free liftgate, and power front seats with driver seat memory settings.

The 2021 XC90 comfortably accommodates seven passengers, or six with available second-row captain's chairs. The spacious interior provides plenty of headroom, legroom, and elbowroom, and up to 85.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity.

Advanced Driver Aids

The 2021 XC90 offers the convenience and enhanced safety of advanced driver-assistance technologies without requiring a higher trim level or additional package. Every XC90 comes standard with a full suite of IntelliSafe driver aids, including:

  • City Safety Collision Avoidance
  • Pilot Assist
  • Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane Keeping Aid
  • Run-off Road and Oncoming Lane Mitigation
