Enhanced design, a new six-cylinder in-line engine, and new, advanced safety systems contribute to strengthening its position on the SUV market. <p><A HREF="http://www.swedespeed.com/news/publish/Volvo_News/article_827.html" TARGET="_blank"><b> Full Story </b></A>

Very nice, with the exception of the front and rear skid plates. Seems to detract from the clean lines, IMO.<p>I do like the variation on the exhaust, however. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Hey, this is good news, as there seems to be no hope for a hybrid in the near future.<br>Thanks! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0">

Sweet... we may be getting a diesel XC90... I think that is better than a hybird... as the cost of a hybrid ends up leveling the savings.

Re: (Bradley W)

I've seen diesel prices much higher than premium gas in my area.<p>So now I can pay more, have less power, and have smelly exhaust fumes? Sign me up!

<I>So now I can pay more, have less power, and have smelly exhaust fumes? Sign me up!<br></I> <br>You may be pleasantly surprised if you get near a D5 or drive one!.....There is not the clickity-clack and noisy engine you are referring to....quite the opposite really! Very quiet inside and out! AND absolutley no black smoke to see or smell!<br>Don't knock it ..till you've tried it! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> I'm sure it will not be the engine of choice for everyone....just as the hybrid will not be everyones choice....but HAVING the choices is what I see as Volvo's position.....offering the variety of engine options to meet the driver/owners needs.

Re: (universityvolvoOSD)

I'm surrounded everyday by XC90's D5 on the highway, ... beleave me they smoke and make rattling noices.<p>It's sounds like a 2.5T with a hole in the engineblock.
