Volvo Canada/US states the T6 has a 1500kg towing capacity, yet the UK Volvo site gives a 2000kg towing capacity.

Is this just a difference in safety standards? What could one theoretically pull with an XC60 T6?

Re: T6 Towing capacity. (C70drvr)

Maybe the UK capacity is for the D5??

US capcity is 3300 lbs(guessing thats 1500 kg).
I wouldn't exceed that, usually bad things happen if you do.

Re: T6 Towing capacity. (GrecianVolvo): Unrelated

Yannis,

I was on Swedespeed some three to four years ago and about to leave Germany coming to the Northern Virginia area and inquiring about local dealers for the Home shipment option. Well, you steered me towards Don Beyer Volvo and Ryan Jones to receive our XC90 T6. Finally, after some years, I'm letting you know that everything worked out like a charm, once the navigation software was converted from European to US specs, and I never thanked you before and wanted to do so now, especially when I saw one of your posts on the XC60 forum.

Thanks again!!!

Oh! My pleasure! I am glad everything went as you expected! I always love to read/hear good stories!


Best of luck with your new...XC60!
