Re: Changes in model years (ouikikazz)

As JRL said do a search, there are lots of thread on this topic.

In general, there were some significant changes from 04 to 05 (better Haldex, better GT, painted body mouldings, etc), 06 got a bigger rear anti-sway bar (21mm vs. 20mm) and new HU, and 07 got a few asthetic changes.

NO,
Haldex and GT change was 2006, mostly cosmetic changes were for 05, also some SUM differences (suspension)

'06 was also the introduction of Sonic Blue and Electric Silver.
Flash Green went away and I believe "base" silver did as well. Not 100% sure on this last point though.
'07 got the turn signal moved to the sideview mirrors and different center caps on the wheels.

Yes, E. Silver replaced "classic" silver as the only choice.

05 got the brushed aluminun trim around the HU and centre console and new 'slider' cup holder cover, 06 got the plastic OTE pipe, 07 got more aluminum around the knobs and turn signal/wiper stalks.

That's a half NO and a half YES...
NO: 05 Got the newer Haldex (ie the pre-charged coupling to avoid the 1/7th of a wheel rotation to transfer torque) ...the V8 XC90 also got it in 05.
YES: 06 got the newer 6spd GT.

NO What don't you understand about NO?
2006 was the pre-charged haldex
(I don't know what the XC90 has and doesn't have, not my area of expertise)

I rest my case
(Thanks)


Okay, okay. I stand correted. I was thinking that I test drove an '05 and I knew it had the 'Instant Traction' feature but it was a Sonic Blue (ie had to be an '06) so all I can say is "What a stupid I am"

Great link, thanks!!! This thread has been added to the FAQ list.

Good idea http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif So this means we will never have another thread like this one again

Re: Changes in model years (LTA)

Just wanted to add something:

The gear ratio listed for 06/07 6speed automatic is wrong for fourth gear.

It's listed as 1.55:1, but should be 1.155:1

2007 Rs -- at least those with the HU-850 radio -- also have an analog audio input jack, located in the console storage bin under the armrest.

correct


also the charge pipe for '06, '07 changed to plastic


as for cosmetic changes, bumpers were different starting in '05 as well, can't do direct swap without a little modification. didn't '05 and up get slightly different tail lights as well?

maybe later '05's then?

after reading the (rodents)rat thread earlier this morning... an attempt to chew through my charge pipe confirms it is not plastic on my '05.
