The Volvo XC60 went through a full redesign for the 2018 model year. Because this appearance is still so fresh, we prepare for a total carryover when the 2019 XC60 debuts.
2019 Volvo XC60 Design and Features
As a carryover, we anticipate the 2019 XC90’s exterior to remain precisely the exact same. This should not present even the slightest problem, as the XC90’s redesign took motivation from the popular XC90– and by “inspiration,” we suggest it’s almost literally a scaled-down variation of the XC90. The exact same goes for the interior, as we expect its upgraded cabin to remain completely the same.
The range of basic features included with the 2019 XC90 should be the same as the 2018 model. If this is true, search for its base T5 Momentum trim to come standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, automatic high beams, a power liftgate, leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, automated dual-zone climate control, a 10-speaker audio system, and more.
2019 Volvo XC60 Engine
We also expect the 2019 Volvo XC90’s under-hood bits to remain totally unchanged. Try to find the T5 models to continue with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Going up to the T6 includes a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter with 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, the T8 offers a 2.0-liter supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder and an electrical motor to create 400 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque. All three powertrain options will consist of an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
Volvo has a long-standing tradition of using some of the best vehicles on the roadway, and this continues with the current XC90. It is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and without any changes in the works, we expect this to remain the same in the 2019 XC90.
2019 Volvo XC60 Pricing & Release Date
There is no main release date yet for the 2019 XC60, but we anticipate to see it in the fall of 2018. Prices likewise remains uncertain for now, but without any changes in store, we don’t expect to see any big rates swing. The 2019 XC90’s cost range must resemble the 2018 model’s $42,495 to $57,695 range (destination fees included). The essential competitors for the 2019 XC60 will include the 2018 BMW X3, the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, and the Jaguar F-Pace.
