Re: why did volvo stop making the T6 S80 (keith718)

Because the engine was dropped in the XC90 in favor of the V8, and it wouldn't have been economical to continue to use the drivetrain in the S80.<p>This also allowed them to finally do away w/ the GM 4 speed tranny.

Re: why did volvo stop making the T6 S80 (VolvoMax)

Thanks!!<br>I just asked a Volvo Salesman @ Karp in New York and what a load of crap he gave me. I couldn't believe what he told me. I just moved on and looked at the cars....

Plus there's a new 3.2 T6 coming out in the new S80. The turbo 5-cylinder and the V-8 are enough for now.
