Volvo XC90 0-60 Time, Horsepower, Performance



As impressive as her comfort, practicality, and cutting-edge tech is, the Volvo XC90 0-60 performance will delight just as well. You may not expect it from an SUV that stands tall with luxurious accommodations for up to seven, but under the hood lies plenty of fun. And under the skin, innovative chassis engineering makes her not only a straight line powerhouse but an agile thrill ride too.

It's just a fraction of what makes a new Volvo XC90 for sale so exciting. The luxury and tech features are a whole other ballgame, and we'd be happy to help you explore them all at our dealership. On this page, though, you'll find all the performance specs a new Volvo XC90 offers across her trim and powertrain choices and how fast each makes the 0-60 mph sprint.

Your Volvo XC90 Trim Selection

For the 2022 model year, the Volvo XC90 takes the stage with two available trim levels. Both represent the pinnacle of SUV luxury, safety, and more, and both represent powerful performance as well.

The 2022 Volvo XC90 performance thrills don't just rely on power, though. Underneath, an innovative Touring Chassis forms the backbone of every Volvo XC90 trim. Designed to be smooth while cruising and sharp while cornering, you'll find handling that's precise and in control at all times. In the front, aluminum double-wishbone suspension confidently holds her to the road, while exclusive rear integral link suspension balances the road-holding with sumptuous comfort.

Any will satisfy your comfort and corner-carving cravings, but when you lease a Volvo XC90, here are your trim options:

Volvo XC90 Momentum

Standard with seven seats, you'll find that this base level trim is downright astounding. Why? Because a selection of high-end features all come standard. Yours for a starting price of $49,900 MSRP,1 style and comfort reach new levels with standard premium touches like Iron Ore aluminum decor, a hand-stitched leather-trimmed steering wheel, and near-endless seat adjustability. A High-Performance sound system and connectivity, including Apple CarPlay®, also come standard, and so does a whole lot more.

Volvo XC90 Inscription

A refined dose of additional luxury and tech, the standard Volvo XC90 0-60 run gets a boost, and so does everything else with this trim. For a starting price of $63,600 MSRP,1 standard Nappa leather upholstery joins in, and so do more features like heated and ventilated front seats, a Harman Kardon® premium sound system, upgraded interior ambient lighting, and much more. Standout 20-inch alloy wheel designs are just one more attractive side of this top trim.

Volvo XC90 Horsepower per Powertrain

Two trims await your selection, and so do two different powertrains. Performance varies between them, and your choices are as follows:

The T5 Powertrain

For this powertrain, your choices include T5 front-wheel drive (FWD) and T5 all-wheel drive (AWD). Standard on a new or used Volvo XC90 for sale in the Momentum trim is the T5 FWD powertrain, but all the others (including T6) are available as options.

With both T5 FWD and AWD powertrains, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder lays down a hearty 250 horsepower along with 258 lb-ft of torque. A towing capacity of up to 4,000 lbs when properly equipped comes with both T5 powertrains as well. Choose the standard T5 FWD powertrain for efficiency on top, or opt for the T5 AWD powertrain for an added dose of all-weather confidence and cornering agility.

The T6 Powertrain

Available only in AWD form on the Volvo XC90, the T6 AWD powertrain comes standard on an Inscription trim Volvo XC90.

With it, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that's both turbocharged and supercharged takes over. Laying down a vigorous 316 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, you also get an upgraded towing capacity that can handle up to 5,000 lbs when properly equipped. As well, the Volvo XC90 0-60 sprint gets a huge boost with this powertrain.
