Welcoming the iconic Volvo wagon back to U.S. shores, Volvo has posted pricing information for the new 2015 Volvo V60 wagon on its consumer website.
According to the site, a base 2015 Volvo V60 equipped with Volvo's new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder Drive-E engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive can be had for $36,215, including destination fees. The first of Volvo's Drive-E engines to arrive, the 2.0-liter four makes 240 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, and is specifically designed for lightness, efficiency, and future hybrid compatibility.
The 2015 Volvo V60 is also offered with two existing engine options, Volvo's 250-hp 2.5-liter T5 and 325-hp 3.0-liter T6 inline engines. Equipped with the 2.5 liter turbocharged inline-five with all-wheel-drive and a six-speed automatic transmission, the mid-level 2015 Volvo V60 costs $37,715, while the top-level 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six with the all-wheel-drive and six-speed auto will run you $45,215 including destination fees.
Both of these engine options already exist within the 2014 Volvo S60 sedan lineup, although the 300-hp version of the T6 engine will not be offered in the V60 wagon.
By comparison, the base 2.5-liter 250-hp 2015 Volvo S60 sedan costs $33,515 when equipped with front wheel drive, and $35,315 with Volvo's optional all-wheel-drive. All in all, the five-door V60 constitutes in this case a $2,400 premium over the four-door Volvo S60. The top-level R-Design 2014 Volvo S60, using the 3.0-liter inline-six, starts at $43,615, which is only $1,600 cheaper than the similarly equipped 2015 Volvo V60.
The 2015 Volvo V60 will be on sale in January 2014, much to the joy of Volvo fans nationwide.
