About the Volvo XC90

Unlike any full-size three-row SUV in its class, the stunning Volvo XC90 delivers seductive styling, premium comfort amenities, and groundbreaking driver-assistive safety technologies which inspire confidence. Starting at $49,900 MSRP for an XC90 T5 Momentum FWD which seats 7 passengers, you'll also have the ability to equip your XC90 with available all-wheel drive for maximum control in even the harshest weather conditions. Other trim options include the luxurious Inscription and the sport-focused R-Design. Regardless of which you choose, you will enjoy standard features such as a panoramic sunroof, CleanZone Air Quality System, and Volvo On Call services.

Perfect for your next weekend getaway, the XC90 features generous seating for up to 7 full-sized adults. Every seat is tailored specifically to deliver the utmost comfort while the interior boasts a massive 85.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity -- perfect for a weekend's worth of luggage. Several turbocharged and supercharged engines are offered on the XC90, ranging from 250 horsepower up to the range-topping 400 horsepower from the T8 Hybrid powertrain. The Volvo XC90 offers uninhibited styling combined with innovative technology to create an unmistakable luxury SUV.

What the Critics Say

"One reason we like the XC90 so much is that it's far prettier than any of its competition. It's easy for a three-row crossover to turn out as a dull box, but Volvo's designers manage to drape delicate sheetmetal over the XC90's bones in a way that draws the eye. On this tester, the graceful Denim Blue bodywork contrasts against chrome and brushed-metal accents. Bold lighting elements, with LEDs and the well-known "Thor's Hammer" running lights, also add curb appeal." -- Roadshow by CNET

"After driving the XC90 again, it reminded me of why I fell in love with it initially. The style, the easy-going driving experience and the well implemented safety features still make it a standout in this class - the sum is somehow greater than the parts." -- Cars.com

What's New for 2022

Shoppers will find a number of small updates to the Volvo XC90 for the 2022 model year.

Integrated navigation is now standard on Momentum trim levels equipped with the T5 powertrain. Additionally, R-Deign grades receive a leather-wrapped steering wheel instead of the previous grained leather trim. Available previously as a standalone option, the optional enhanced air filtration system is now included in the available Advanced package. Lastly, headlamp washer nozzles now come as part of the optional Climate package.

2022 Volvo XC90 Powertrain Options

Multiple Powertrain Options

The T5 and T6 engines are two of the most popular powertrain choices available on the XC90. Although both are 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engines, there is one key difference that separates the two. The T5 features a single turbocharger while the T6 is twin-charged, meaning that both a supercharger and a turbocharger work in tandem to deliver power.

Available in both front wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) configurations, the T5 produces a balanced 250 horsepower. In comparison, T6 models feature 316 horsepower and are available exclusively with all-wheel drive. Sitting atop the range is a T8 Plug-In Hybrid engine that delivers E-AWD, 400 combined system horsepower, and an exceptional 54 MPGe fuel economy equivalent**.

Refined Interior

The Volvo XC90 offers an interior that features not only elegant styling but also spacious cargo room. The leather upholstery and aluminum and wood accents express the Scandinavian design and the 50/50 third row offers impressive legroom of 31.9 inches. And with up to 85.7 cubic feet of cargo space, the XC90 can accommodate any weekend adventure. Available CleanZone air technology helps to improve interior air quality while simultaneously removing harmful bacteria and particles throughout the cabin.

Volvo XC90 Towing Capacity

The Volvo XC90 has a maximum towing capacity of 4,000-5,000 pounds when properly equipped with the available towing package. T5 front-wheel-drive models can tow up to 4,000 pounds. All other XC90 models have a 5,000 pound maximum towing rating, giving you plenty of power for towing a small boat, pair of jet skis, or a small pop-up camping trailer. Combined with a massive 85.7 cubic feet of cargo space, XC90 is ready for your next weekend vacation.

XC90 has an available air suspension system on all four wheels. This system comes in handy when loading cargo or hitching up a trailer. Simply press a button inside the cargo area to lower the rear of the car by up to 2 inches, giving easier access for loading cargo or lining up a trailer to its hitch.
