Which Volvo SUV is Right for You?

Volvo XC40

There are two powertrain options available to drivers when selecting a 2023 Volvo XC40. Under the hood, drivers can expect a two-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with the B4 base model. This powertrain provides 194 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque.

Opting for the B5 engine, Auburn, IN drivers can enjoy even more velocity with 247 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. These engine systems are wedded to an eight-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel or all-wheel drive. 18-inch alloy wheels are standard with the base model Volvo XC40, while the Ultimate model has 19-inch wheels.

The Volvo XC40 is a luxury SUV loaded with technology for drivers to take advantage of. With the base model, you will find dual-zone climate control, allowing drivers and passengers alike to find their ideal temperature for the journey ahead. An eight-way power adjustable driver's seat is covered in your choice of animal-free cloth/suede or leather upholstery. A 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen pairs easily with Apple CarPlay, allowing you to use your favorite smartphone apps with ease. If you're an Android user, there is a built-in Google infotainment system, with a year of complimentary Digital Services package.

Volvo XC60

If you need something a little roomier while maintaining a convenient physical footprint, then consider the Volvo XC60. This compact luxury SUV leverages its longer length for more legroom and larger cargo capacity. It also adds more amenities to the standard features list, including dual-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic moonroof, a hands-free liftgate, and more. It's a great choice for smaller families or anyone seeking extra versatility for their daily drives.

New for the XC60, Volvo has replaced the previous T5 (turbocharged) and T6 (turbo and supercharged) powertrains with B5 and B6 mild-hybrid (MHEV) versions. The B5 and B6 powertrains feature a 48-volt electric motor that captures energy typically lost during deceleration (regenerative braking). The energy is stored in a small battery and redeployed to assist the engine during ignition and stop-starts, resulting in smoother acceleration, lower emissions, and improved efficiency.

The XC60 is also available with the Recharge plug-in hybrid powertrain, which boosts performance and efficiency and enables up to 19 miles of electric-only driving.

Volvo XC90 & XC90 Recharge

For drivers seeking more space and seatbelts for their larger Fort Wayne family, there's Volvo's flagship model, the XC90. This midsize three-row luxury SUV offers ample accommodations for seven passengers and a maximum cargo area of 85.7 cubic feet. If you don't need the extra seat, an available six-seat configuration with second-row captain's chairs enhances the feeling of spaciousness and provides easier access to the third row. The Volvo XC90 is available with the T5, T6, or Recharge powertrain and includes even more standard features like four-zone automatic climate control, wireless charging, and Volvo's Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system with adaptive cruise control and lane-centering.

For those looking to maximize fuel efficiency and go eco-friendly, the XC90 Recharge powertrain is a plug-in hybrid. This provides a staggering 400 horsepower. The Recharge powertrain is capable of driving 18 miles on the electric battery alone, perfect for local commuting or running quick errands.

The 2023 Volvo XC90 provides bleeding-edge technology, making this vehicle one of the best in its class for Columbia City, IN drivers. Four-zone automatic climate control allows you and your passengers to find the ideal temperature while you're out on the open road.

A nine-inch touchscreen pairs with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to use your favorite apps from your smartphone through this handy onboard display. Choose your favorite playlists, podcasts, map applications, and more with ease. Drop your mobile devices on the wireless charging pad to keep them powered up at all times. Upper trim levels offer either a 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system or a 19-speaker Bowers & Wilkins premium audio system, making for a premium listening experience in the 2023 Volvo XC90.

All-Electric Volvo SUVs

Volvo C40 and XC40 Recharge

For Fort Wayne drivers seeking exhilarating performance with zero tailpipe emissions, Volvo offers the XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge pure-electric luxury crossovers. Electric motors on each axle combine to deliver 402 horsepower and 487 lb-ft of near-instant torque, propelling the XC40 and C40 Recharge Twin to 60 mph from a standstill in under 4.7 seconds. A 75-kWh battery pack provides up to 223 miles (EPA estimate) of range and can be fully charged overnight (~8 hours) with Level 2 (220V) home charging equipment. At 150-kW DC fast-charging stations, like those found at highway rest stops, the battery can charge 80% in just 40 minutes.

In addition to being more environmentally friendly, pure-electric vehicles also offer significantly reduced ownership costs. Electricity costs less per mile than gasoline, and permanently sealed EV motors don't require many standard maintenance items like oil changes.

For Columbia City, IN drivers seeking a fully electric SUV, the XC40 Recharge is a perfect choice. Powered by a 78-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, this vehicle is standard with all-wheel drive. This powertrain provides a whopping 402 horsepower and 486 pound-feet of torque. Drivers can expect 223 miles of EPA-estimated driving range.
