I am curious if anyone has learned any details regarding the updates for the 2014 V70/V70 Cross Country/S80's. It's possible that we see the 2014 starting production in January on these and then in May for the S60/V60/XC60.

Just got back from a VCNA manager's meeting and here is the skinny....2014 S60 & XC60 get new front and rear fascias, some new interior treatments, new wheel styles, new headlamps and LED light accents along with a new hood design. Front ends become less bulbous looking and the illusion of appearing wider and lower. S80 & XC70 will get similar treatments but they do not look as dramatically different. More of an evolution than a revamp.

The 2014's will be launched in the summer as normal with the current powertrains. The new 4 cylinders will become available January 2013 as a mid-model year update. Horsepower and MPG were not discussed today.

Did you intend to state January 2014 and not 2013 for the 4 cylinders?

Can't wait to see the new interior treatments. Particularly the instrument cluster.
