This might be Jay Leno's new ride

If I'm being honest, Volvo has never produced an automobile that caught my eye. Typically, I think of safety and boredom when I hear the Volvo name, but a new concept has surfaced that is certainly not boring. The concept car is called the Volvo S60 Polestar.

This concept is limited-edition to your vehicle with modified turbocharged straight six producing 508 hp and 421 pound-foot of torque. The machine also has a Haldex AWD system and special Ohlins suspension to make it right at home on the racetrack.

All that power equates to a Sprint from a stop to 62 mph in about 3.9 seconds and a top speed of over 186 mph. Apparently a rumor circulating that Jay Leno has purchased the blue car you see in the photos. Me likey.

First Look: 2015 Volvo XC90

Aug 28 2014 8:32am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN — All too often, a car that’s billed as being all-new really is not — the majority of it may have been tweaked or reworked, but seldom is it overhauled from bumper to bumper. The Volvo XC90 is the exception that makes the rule. Everything from the styling to the platform and powertrain choices is totally new, as is the company’s infotainment system. Stylistically, the new XC90 will not be mistaken for anything othe ...

10 Things You Need to Know About the 2016 Volvo XC90

Aug 27 2014 4:35pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Volvo touts its all-new 2016 XC90 SUV as the first product of the “new Volvo” and the launch of a company-wide rebirth. While Volvo isn’t completely flipping the script—and, say, making six-wheeled military motorcycles—the XC90 does represent its first independently developed car since being financially sugar-daddied by Chinese automaker Geely. The 2016 XC90, which we recently also in, is also the model’s first clean ...

With the future of the company perhaps relying on its wide sculpted shoulders, the all-new 2015 Volvo XC90 made its official debut this week after a summer full of teaser images.

Filed under: Technology, Crossover, Volvo, Design/Style, Luxury, Deep Dive The new XC90 isn't just about the new XC90 - it's as much about the new generation of Volvos that will result. Around the turn of the millennium, Volvo seemed like the perfect automaker to make a crossover. It had, after all, already established for itself a reputation for building all-wheel-drive wagons for transporting families in safety and comfort. But while its compe ...
