2017 Volvo XC90 Powertrain and MPG Options
The 2017 Volvo XC90 is an indulgently-fitted three-row crossover that provides Billings and Lockwood drivers with surprisingly high mpg ratings thanks to a sophisticated set of powertrain options that rival competitors. With two high-end engine variants available, as well as one of the most intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) systems in the segment, the XC90 is as impressive across city, highway, and backcountry as it is at the pump. Keep reading to learn more about both of the powertrains on offer with the 2017 Volvo XC90
The 2.0L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder
When you sit behind the wheel of a 2017 Volvo XC90, you can count on enjoying superior power as standard thanks to the 2.0L turbo engine, which is able to harness up to a competitive 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.
An eight-speed automatic transmission comes as standard to deliver swift and seamless shifts, plus the ability to make up to 22 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway. Even AWD efficiency ratings are impressive, standing at 22 in the city and 25 on the highway.
The 2.0L Turbocharged & Supercharged Four-Cylinder
For next-level performance, add supercharging into the mix in order to have up to 316 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque at your disposal, with AWD as standard to ensure flawless performance.
The 2.0L supercharged engine’s output is enough to take you from zero to 60 mph in just 6.6 seconds, which is a phenomenal time for a three-row SUV. Even so, efficiency ratings remain strong at 20 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway.
With that kind of power on tap, it should come as no surprise to Billings and Lockwood drivers that the Volvo XC90 was named SUV of the Year by Motor Trend. Of course, that’s not the kind of distinction that is awarded on the basis of sophisticated powertrain options alone. Accordingly, the 2017 XC90 offers a number of further performance features, including:
- Multiple Drive Modes: Choose Dynamic for quicker gear changes and acceleration, ECO to emphasize efficiency, or Off Road to answer tougher roads and conditions.
- All-Wheel Drive: The XC90 is ready for any condition or terrain type thanks to the innovative Instant Traction feature, which provides the best possible grip across all situations
