I see in some of the pix that there is an <B>AWD</B> badge on the right of the liftgate under the <B>XC90</B> badge.<BR>The left side is empty.<BR>Any idea if a badge will be used to denote which engine is powering the XC90 such as <B>2.9T</B>? If so, think it will go on the liftgate or maybe the front fenders?<BR>(I'm bored... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">)<P>

<IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/resources/gallery/cars/02_xc90/large/40.jpg"> <P>I'm going to guess no. Volvo just released more pics of the XC90 and they all just say XC90 AWD. As they have the larger rims, I'd guess they are T-6 models depicted. You could probably buy a T-6 badge at your dealer or make a 2.5T badge by cutting up a 2.4T badge and a T-5 badge. <P>Although, the XC90 is supposed to sell in FWD setups minimally in the North American South East section of the country. If you use the V70 and S60 as an example, the non AWD XC90 will probably be badged 2.5T. So you might be able to source one at the dealer anyway.

George,<P>I just read the latest CAR magazine and they have a nice story on the XC90, have you checked it out yet?<P>In one of the pictures you can clearly see that is says <B>T6</B> and next to it <B>AWD</B>. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/confused.gif"><P>Maybe North America doesn't get those designations.<P>-Drew

If it is a FWD model, it will just be XC90 2.5T. The rest will be XC90 AWD and below that the engine badge.<P><BR>Yannis<P><P>

The T6 model will show: "XC90 AWD" and "T6" below that. Sorry for the confusion. I am also looking into getting some info about the bi-Xenon headlights. The info I have receive so far is that CLIMATE package needs to be ordered if one has to have the xenon lights. But I will get some more info and then let you know. Most of our customers want them so I hope the first cars come with them anyway. But it is a stand alone option for both 2.5T and T6 models.<P><BR>Yannis<P><P>

I'be been bemoaning the fact that its not available in Canada with the 2.5T so you can only get the bi-xenon's on the T6.<P>Pat<BR><P>

Here's the first photo I've seen with a T6 badge: <BR> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/resources/gallery/cars/02_xc90/xc90_1stdrive/large/12.jpg"> <BR> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>
