Re: 2.5T or T6 - which one is better and more reliable for towing 3,500 lb. boat (tweekme)

We pull a 4,000 pound plus Cobalt on tandem trailer over our mountain pass with 2005 2.5T. Runs fine at 60 mph, no overheat, etc. Absolutely great & stable pulling and braking.

I would encourage you to research the T6 discussions on this forum for problems with the early years of that model (many issues other than transmission problems). As you may know, that model was discontinued and replaced with the V8, but a litany of problems apparently even led some owners to receive buy-backs and/or exchanges for a new XC90 (non-T6) from Volvo.

Search for:
T6 lemon
buyback
Transmission

but you need to check the "archive" box (these were conversations from a year or so ago) and the "search message" (as opposed to the "title") box

You should find a number of threads about it such as this one:
