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.
