2015 Volvo V60 Prices Set in Advance of January 2014 Arrival

Volvo expects its new 2015 V60 sport wagon to start arriving in dealer showrooms by the end of January 2014, and the company has set a starting price of $35,350 for the car, not including a destination charge of $925. The new 2015 Volvo V60 will be offered with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive (AWD) and in standard, Premier, Platinum, and R-Design trim levels.

The most affordable model is the V60 T5 with front-wheel drive, which is equipped with Volvo's new Drive-E powertrain. A turbocharged, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine generates 240 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, the latter available from 1,500 rpm to 4,800 rpm. An 8-speed automatic transmission with manual shifting capability drives the front wheels, and Volvo claims the car accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds. The EPA had not finalized fuel-economy figures as this article was written.

To take advantage of the optional Instant Traction AWD system, buyers can choose between two engines. The most affordable model ($37,725 including the destination charge) adds a turbocharged, 2.5-liter 5-cylinder engine making 250 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque, paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Versions equipped with R-Design trim also gain a "T6" designation and have a turbocharged, 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine delivering 325 horsepower and 354 lb.-ft. of torque, as well as a 6-speed automatic transmission equipped with Advanced Quick Shift technology and paddle shifters that help the car reach 60 mph in a claimed 5.4 seconds. This model also benefits from sportier chassis tuning for improved handling, and comes with most equipment as standard. Prices start at $45,225 for the V60 T6 AWD R-Design model.

Interested parties can configure a 2015 Volvo V60 on the company's U.S. consumer website.
