2023 Volvo XC90: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The Volvo XC90 is the Swedish brand’s largest vehicle, featuring loads of safety technology, seating for up to seven, and tons of space. The 2023 model year for the vehicle is expected to be a carryover, so all those great assets will remain the same.

Volvo’s styling has remained incredibly fresh looking inside and out, even though the current version of the XC90 has been around for seven years. Its exterior looks poised and reserved, yet still high-end with just the right amount of flash. Inside, the XC90 is precisely designed with wood and metallic trims mixed with high-quality leather and materials creating an undeniably Scandinavian feel.

The engine options are a series of 2.0-liter four cylinders but don’t think they leave the XC90 wanting for power. The base option is turbocharged, with 250 horsepower, and a turbocharged and supercharged version is available with 316 horsepower. The Recharge plug-in hybrid model adds an electric motor to the mix, giving it a total of 400 horsepower.

A long-running joke is that Volvos are cars people buy to carry their airbags around in. The XC90 is no exception, but Volvo includes so much more standard safety equipment than airbags these days. All XC90s get adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane departure warnings, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts, traffic sign recognition, and automatic high beams. Park assist, a surround-view camera and a heads-up display are all options that can help out even more.

Pricing & Release Date

We haven’t heard anything from Volvo about when the new XC90 will be hitting dealer lots, but we’d expect it towards the end of 2022. Chip shortage and supply chain issues may push it further back, but only time will tell.

Prices will likely remain in line with what they are currently. The XC90 starts at $51,995 for the Momentum trim and ranges up to $72,195 for the Recharge Inscription.

As a luxury crossover, the XC90 has a lot of competitors from all over the world. Germany offers the Audi Q7, BMW X7, and the Mercedes GLS, South Korea has the Genesis GV80, while the Lincoln Aviator represents the best of American brand offerings.
