What to Look Forward to in the New Year

2013 was a busy year for Volvo, with new technology, design changes and investment in future vehicles. However, 2014 will be even bigger for more than a few reasons. Here is a rundown of some of the things you will want to check out in the New Year...

1. The Return of the wagon. Yes, Volvo is bringing the wagon back to the US. Not just any wagon, but the new 2015 Volvo V60. It will come in a variety of powertrains and packages. We cannot say enough good things about this vehicle. Starting at $35,300 (plus destination), the V60 is truly in a class of its own when it comes to safety, versatility, driving dynamics and fuel efficiency.

2. The all-new Volvo Drive-E engine range. A major investment, the new Volvo Drive-E engines will be available in most of the Volvo line-up including the S60, V60, S80, XC60 and XC70. With start-stop technology, amazing fuel economy AND performance (240 horsepower in T5 trim, 300+ horsepower in T6 trim), the Drive-E engine range will impress in all areas.

3. 8 Speed Automatic Transmissions. Yes, you read that right...a new 8 speed transmission. Connected to Volvos with the Drive-E engine, the new automatic transmission will provide smooth shifting and help deliver even greater fuel efficiency. In addition, performance will also be increased with faster shifting.

4. The Fastest Volvos Ever Produced. Volvos are safe, yes. But Volvos are also exciting. That will be the emphasis of the all-new Volvo S60 Polestar and Volvo V60 Polestar. Featuring a long list of performance items (Brembo brakes, unique suspension, aerodynamic styling, special wheels, etc.) the Polestar Volvos will produce 350 horsepower and be able to reach 60 miles an hour in under 5 seconds.

5. Turbo charger + Super Charger. The all-new Volvo T6 engine not only provides over 300 horsepower, but it also features turbo power with a super charger. This unique design will ensure power in the lower end (with the turbo charger) and power in the higher end (with the super charger), giving you a seamless band of power with none of the drawbacks.

There are other exciting changes and announcement for 2014, but we cannot share them all yet. Stay tuned with Lehman Volvo for all the latest news.

Surprise! The gift of Safety

Yes, people do get surprised with new vehicles for Christmas. In fact,  Lehman Volvo usually has at least one surprise vehicle purchase each year (sometimes more).

We have had clients surprise their friends, family members or significant others with a new or pre-owned Volvo from Lehman Volvo. In fact, it just happened to Angela Chapman, whose sister surprised her with a very nice 8,500 mile Certified Pre-Owned Volvo S40.

As Angela walked into the showroom and saw the Volvo S40 sitting there with a note on the windshield she said: “Oh, isn’t that nice! Someone is getting a Volvo for Christmas!” Little did she know, it was hers! Here’s to many happy miles from everyone at Lehman Volvo.

Your surprise gift of safety could be waiting at Lehman Volvo in York www.lehmanvolvoyork.com  or Lehman Volvo in Mechanicsburg www.lehmanvolvo.com

How to put 4,542 miles on your new Volvo before you take it home

As a follow-up to our last post, we thought we would share exactly how the Andersons put 4,542 miles on their new 2014 Volvo S60 in Europe. After flying to Sweden on Volvo's dime (part of the benefit of ordering your new Volvo through Overseas Delivery) the Andersons picked up their Volvo at the factory delivery center, and took a little excursion...and by little we mean big:



St. Pair Sur Mer (Normandy)
St. Malo





After their trip, the Andersons gave their newly broken-in Volvo back to the factory where it was shipped to Lehman Motors Volvo before they took final delivery. Quite an adventure for a new car, and a great story. Order your next Volvo through Lehman Volvo and tell them you want your new Volvo through Overseas Delivery. You can drive your new Volvo in Europe for up to 2 weeks with insuraunce and registration covered by Volvo, or you can just check the car out and let Volvo ship it to our dealership with a lot less miles than the Andersons.

The 4,542 Mile New Car


Pictured above are the Andersons, who just took delivery of their new 2014 Volvo S60 T5 all-wheel-drive. And all four wheels drove 4,542 miles before they took delivery of their new car at Lehman Volvo. The Andersons took advantage of Volvo’s Overseas Delivery program through Lehman Volvo.

If you aren’t familiar with the program, Volvo Overseas Delivery gives you a chance to order your Volvo from us and fly to Sweden to pick it up directly from the factory. The roundtrip airfare comes at no charge and you get some very cool VIP perks along the way. Another benefit of the program is the opportunity to drive your new Volvo in Europe before it gets shipped to our dealership for final delivery. Volvo will cover 14 days of European registration and insurance. The red tourist license plates are yours to keep! With that in mind, the Andersons made the most out of the opportunity!

After picking up their car in Gothenburg, Sweden, they traveled to Stockholm, then to Malmo, then on to Copenhagen, Denmark. From there they travelled to multiple cities in Germany and France.  In total, nearly 4,600 miles were completed.  This is certainly a record for a Lehman Volvo customer, and one of the most well-travelled Overseas Delivery cars Volvo has seen as well.
