As we mentioned last week, we’re quickly moving into the buying season for the new 2015 model year. One of the popular auto manufacturers is Volvo, which was recently purchased by Geely. Many industry watchers have been curiously waiting to see what this new version of the Volvo brand would produce. With the introduction of the model we’re featuring today, many feel that this will completely redefine the Volvo brand.
Volvo has finally revealed the all-new 2015 XC90 luxury crossover SUV, perhaps their most important new product in decades. Notice the engine selections available with turbocharged, supercharged and hybrid models. Consider a couple of reaction comments from automotive enthusiasts made when first seeing this new reveal: “One of a kind vehicle. This new Volvo xc90 2015 is pushing all possible boundaries. BMW Mercedes and all other luxury levels watch out for New VOLVO products coming soon in the near future. This particular model is phenomenal, it’s stunning and the technology is mind blowing. Whoever purchases this vehicle is a winner in every way.”“It looks like a Q7 from the front, an X5 from the side and an X3 with Volvo lights from the back. If it’s a much more affordable competitor to the Q7, X5 & ML, it will probably sell well in the USA.”
All of us that have ever owned a vehicle, know that parts wear out and break down, occasionally leaving us on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck. Regular servicing and maintenance can help diagnose small issues before they become huge repairs, but no matter how much you keep your car in top shape, repairs are simply a fact of life for car owners. Depending on the type of repair needed, costs can be minimal or you might seem you need a second mortgage in order to pay the mechanic.
The development of self-driving vehicles continues to accelerate faster and faster. following up on announced plans last year, Volvo has become the latest manufacturer to being public road testing with actual vehicles. They plan to eventually have a fleet of 100 text cars on the roads around their headquarters in Sweden. Volvo has branded this phase of their testing “Drive Me”. Federal and local government agencies are cooperating on the project.
