Don't know if that will happen since people may associate this drive train with the earlier T6 that had transmission problems.

Didn't stop them from putting it in the new S80; even though the previous T6's were trouble.

I thought the T6/GM transmission combination was O.K. in the S80, but had problems in the heavier XC90.

Nope. Transmission issues also plagued the S80 T6.

No where near as much as the XC90 T6.

My recollection is different... the T6/GM transmission internet hysteria started way before the XC90 was even introduced - as early as 2000. I remember not even looking at T6 when buying XC90 because of the existing bad rap...

Perhaps not as many S80 T6's sold as the XC90 T6?

If there is going to be another T6, I would like to imagine it to be a hybrid.

new US fuel consumption guidelines mandate more efficient cars not too long from now.
