Re: XC 90 I6 (James748S)

how different is it supposed to be?<p>The 04 models have a 2.9L I6 and twin turbos.<p>Any news if the same weak transmission on the current I6's is being used in the new one?<p>

Re: XC 90 I6 (MagoonR)

235hp, actually. And it's mated to the oh-so-nice 6 speed auto (like the V8).<p><A HREF="http://volvocars-pr.com/index.asp?mediaid=3648&menupar=newsroom&lang=1&flash=0&menuhighlight=archive" TARGET="_blank">http://volvocars-pr.com/index....chive</A><p>Tom.

Volvo people have told me the acceleration is slightly better with this engine than what the 2.5T gives you. Probably because of the transmission.<p>Yannis

Re: XC 90 I6 (GrecianVolvo)

Have the EPA milage ratings been released yet? I have not been able to find them, but am curious how the 3.2 compares to the I5 turbo.<p>thanks

Re: XC 90 I6 (T5_awd)

I was just interested at the comparison between the 2.5t and I6, we have a 05 XC70 LE which we are more than happy with, excellent car!<br>I scored a drive in a demo XC90 2.5T whilst our car had its 15k service last month in Cairns and was quite impressed. The extra weight doesn't affect the performance anywhere near as much as I had anticipated.

Re: XC 90 I6 (James748S)

Looking at the small amount of data that Volvo has povided, the overall performance of the 2 engines should be similar. The turbo 5 is probably a little quicker off the line, but the I6 should catch up and pass it @ highway speeds.<br>Fuel mileage should improve by a couple miles per gallon.

Re: XC 90 I6 (VolvoMax)

It's perhaps worth pointing out that in 2007, there won't be any XC90 turbo model! Both engines will be available only normally aspirated.<p>Wow - how long has it been since that happened in the Volvo line? Hey get those engineers cracking on the I6T!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Tom.
