New Volvo XC90 Confirmed for Production

Rumored to have been axed, Volvo North America CEO Doug Speck has confirmed plans to keep the XC90 SUV alive. In a recent interview with Automotive News, Speck commented that the automaker intends to “bring an all-new XC90 to the market.”

Introduced in 2002, the XC90 is still on its first generation, receiving new engines and visual updates along the way.

The move is part of a larger push by Volvo to reestablish itself as a true premium brand, and to focus on building up its core models first. Based on the same platform as the S80 sedan, look for a new version of that car to arrive over the next few years first.

    While I’m tempted not to care, the new S60 really is amazing, so I’m not ready to give up on Volvo yet.
