Underriner Volvo is Proud to Present the Volvo XC90 with Polestar

July 25th, 2016 by

2016 Volvo XC90 sideThe Polestar-tuned Volvo XC90 is coming to Billings and Lockwood later this year, and it’s sure to turn heads when you hit the gas. Polestar engineering has optimized the engine’s performance to turn out more torque and horsepower than ever. Keep reading to learn about this exclusive technology.

Polestar Power

The 2016 Volvo XC90’s standard T8 hybrid utilizes supercharging, turbocharging, direct-injection, and an electric motor to produce up to 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque, so it’s already surpassed hybrid expectations for drivers all across Billings and Lockwood.

However, Polestar were able to refine that powertrain even further; it now purrs commandingly with an output that is equal to 421 horsepower and 501 lb-ft of torque. That additional power comes with real world advantages. When you hit the gas, expect to hit 62 mph in just 5.5 seconds.

You’ll have more torque at your disposal than either the BMW X5 eDrive or the Mercedes-Benz GLE550e. The Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid, which delivers 416 horsepower and 435 lb-ft of torque, and the Lexus RX 450h, which comes with just 308 and 247, perform worse across both measures.

It isn’t even just raw power that rises, with Polestar Performance Optimization honing throttle and gearbox response for heightened responsiveness. Even better, fuel consumption, emissions, and warranty aren’t affected in the slightest.

High-End Technology

The Volvo XC90 will offer a ride unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before, and it boasts the comfort and convenience features to match, including:

  • 360? Camera: Delivers a virtual bird’s eye view of everything surrounding the car to help you maneuver at low speeds.
  • Sensus: This state-of-the-art infotainment system brings a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, so you’ll always stay connected on the go.
  • Volvo On Call: Want to start your engine remotely to warm or cool the cabin before you get inside, or receive roadside assistance as quickly as possible? With Volvo On Call, you can and do.

Polestar Have Taken XC90 Performance to Bold New Places

The XC90 has made its name by performing beyond expectations, and its reputation will only be enhanced by the introduction of the Polestar-tuned model. To find out more, just contact one of the team here at Underriner Volvo today. We look forward to seeing our Billings and Lockwood customers soon!
