2010 Volvo XC60 T6


IMG_20151001_113605

I purchased this Volvo XC60 T6 AWD in August of 2015 to replace my XC90 V8. It is loaded with Technology Package, which includes adaptive cruise control and keyless entry and ignition. The T6 motor provides ample torque and power at low RPM (peak torque starts at 1500RPM) and sips fuel compared to it’s larger V8 brother in the XC90.
