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.
