The R seems to be finding it's way to the XC90

Well, so much for "R" exclusive blue guages and Passion red! Volvo is making a Sportier version of the XC90, I guess to fill the gap where the R will be left out at the end of '07. I noticed that they stole the blue guages and tried to give it sportier seats! <A HREF="http://www.swedespeed.com/news/publish/Volvo_News/article_877.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.swedespeed.com/news....html</A>

Where's the 6spd manual attached to the V8? <br>That would really do it for me. The suspension and the painted body panels get me about 60% of the way there, but I really need a manual to push me over into SUV land.

Because of that, the economies of scale preclude this happening. How many SUV's out there that are not hard core SUV's (i.e. no car based crossovers) are offered with an MT? None. <p>I don't think Volvo offers the V8 / Manual Trans combination in any vehicle even in Europe.

As far as non-car based unibody constructed SUVs, the X5 3.0 and Cayenne both come standard with manuals. The bigger engined X5 4.4, 4.8 and Cayenne S, Turbo and Turbo S do not (at least as far as I'm aware).<p>-Eric<BR><BR>

Interesting because you cannot build a Passion Red T5 or lower on Volvo's site.

Perhaps they are taking a cue from BMW who refuses to classify the X5 (or any performance version of a utility) under the M line?

When Volvo switches over to 2007, you'll be able to buid Passion Red on the other variants online.

drivinfast,<p>I noticed that yesterday as well, saw and article and then noticed in the pics that they ripped off our gauges!! That's what burns me most; those gauges make the R seem so special... now they're going to show up in an SUV of all things. <p>Next thing you know Ford will be dropping Atacama interiors into the Explorer... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Ah well, those XC90 sport drivers will never get our Axle ping! That's all I need, this axle ping. And this turning circle, that's all I need, this axle ping and my turning circle and nothing else... (apologies to Steve Martin) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>gb

I said that you could not get passion red in anything else but a R currently and you can get it in the S40.<p>Regarding MY07, I have yet to see a non-R that's in Passion Red. There's a lot of information out there that states things that simply isn't true about the MY07.<p>So yeah enough fellas.
