First-Class Performance Comes as Standard with the Luxurious 2017 Volvo XC60
Exhilarating performance specs ensure that the 2017 Volvo XC60 isn’t solely prized for its luxury fittings and state-of-the-art technologies. You’ll be just as engaged breezing through the short route between Billings and Lockwood as you would be travelling up to cross the Canadian border. With two engines both complemented by a ground-breaking transmission system, the ride of the XC60 combines power and efficiency like nothing else on the market. Keep reading to learn more about the performance capabilities of the 2017 Volvo XC60.
The 2017 Volvo XC60 has pioneered performance engineering by using turbocharged and supercharged versions of the same 2.0L four-cylinder engine, delivering power comparable to six and even eight-cylinder powerhouses without the associated fuel drain.
That engine comes in two grades:
- T5: Generates up to 240 horsepower alongside 258 lb-ft of torque.
- T6: Generates up to 302 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.
Regardless of engine choice, your 2017 Volvo XC60 will be fitted with a cutting-edge eight-speed Geartronic™ automatic transmission system as standard. Those added gears allow for optimized specialization, resulting in Best-In-Class fuel consumption rates across the board. Expect to earn up to 23 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway with the T5 engine or 20 and 27 with a T6.
Beyond outstanding efficiency, the XC60’s advanced gearbox has been designed to deliver quiet, smooth shifts for a composed and comfortable drive under all weather conditions you might encounter in Billings or Lockwood.
If you’d like to travel across the roads of Montana when the harsh winter weather draws in without experiencing any lack of peace of mind, make sure you equip your XC60 with All-Wheel Drive. Power is distributed intelligently between all four wheels to supply sure-footed performance, and the Instant Traction function ensures a flawless grip against the road beneath your wheels
For sportier performance, upgrade to the XC60 R-Design. It receives the 2.0L supercharged four-cylinder as standard, plus paddle shifters and a streamlined chassis.
