Volvo Adds Turbo to S80 Lineup


We were mightily impressed with Volvo’s all-new S80 when we tested the V-8 powered AWD version a few months back. At the time, the only other engine offered was a 235-hp six-cylinder, with front-wheel drive. Now, Volvo is adding a turbocharged version of that six-cylinder, which produces an impressive 295 hp and 285 pounds-feet of torque paired to an AWD system. The V-8, for comparison, produces 311 hp and 325 pounds-feet of torque.

No pricing has been announced for the new model, called the S80 T6 AWD, but the current six-cylinder starts at $38,705 and the V-8 AWD starts at $47,350. It’s easy to assume the new T6 will fall somewhere between those two figures. No on-sale date has been announced.

Now if they put it in the Lincoln MKS that would be cool.


"...the current V-6 starts at $38,705..."

V-6? I-6, maybe, but Volvo hasn't had a V-6 in recent memory.


Well, according to Volvo (, it is indeed an I-6.

I swear I didnt' put V-6 in there. Sorry. Fixed.

Hi! Thank you so much for sharing! I admire Volvo as one of the best cars on the market. Yes, the automobile industry is becoming bigger and bigger. Every year, we have new models released in the market. But then, aside from vehicle safety, it's also important to consider how these cars contribute to the environment. More so, in purchasing cars, consideration on the gas price is a necessity. Japan is most famous for compact cars due to their effective fuel consumption. Toyota and Honda are just in lined with this matter. In fact, Honda Civic Hybrid is named as Car of year at USA car show. These are smaller compared to other cars but with the skyrocketting fuel price, I think I'd like to see these in the next car shows.

Also, these days, Japan opens its gateway to online Japan used car sales and it's becoming a trend where you can buy cars directly from Japan directly and it will be shipped to your city port! You can check this web site: Again, thanks so much for sharing and keep em coming! :) Have a nice one!
