Volvo Announces Pricing on 2014 Lineup

Volvo announced pricing this week for its 2014 lineup, across which exterior updates and technological enhancements have been made. Powertrains carry over from the previous year and include the 250-horsepower T5; 240-hp, 3.2-liter six-cylinder; 300-hp, turbocharged T6; and the Swedish automaker's most powerful engine, the turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder, which makes 325 hp and 354 pounds-feet of torque. Click on each of the models for details on what’s changed for 2014 on the S60 sedan, S80 sedan, XC70 wagon and XC60 compact SUV; the XC90 SUV continues virtually unchanged.

New offerings for the 2014 model year include the Adaptive Digital TFT Display instrument cluster that allows drivers to choose between three themes — Elegance, Eco and Performance — all with different configurations and functionality, Volvo stated. New paddle shifters, coupled with the automaker's Advanced Quick Shift transmission-optimization software, are said to improve the speed of each gear change, increasing zero-to-60-mph times by as much as 0.4 seconds on some models. Safety equipment debuting for 2014 includes pedestrian and cyclist detection with full auto brake, cross-traffic alert and a new radar-based blind spot monitoring system.

Volvo's 2014 lineup is on sale now. Pricing, including a $915 destination charge, is as follows:

The S60 starts at $33,315 for the T5 model and goes up to $46,615 for the T6 RD Platinum model.

The S80 starts at $40,815 for the 3.2-liter with front-wheel drive and goes up to $49,065 for the T6 Platinum version.

The XC70 starts at $35,415 for the 3.2-liter with front-wheel drive and goes up to $46,565 for the T6 Platinum model.

The XC60 starts at $35,765 for the 3.2-liter with front-wheel drive and goes up to $50,715 for the T6 RD Platinum version.
