2004 Volvo XC90 - Price Quote

Visit Volvo for more information on the Volvo XC90.

Volvo's innovative premium midsize SUV was first introduced in 2003. It allowed the manufacturer to present its own view of what sport utility vehicle should offer. What resulted is an upscale model that lacks nothing in the way of drivability, and has a safety package that is second to none.

One of the most appealing things about the 2004 Volvo XC90 is the way in which it handles. This can be attributed to the P2 large-car platform it uses, which it shares with Volvo's flagship S80 sedan. Taking corners with ease and making parking a snap, the Volvo XC90 is quite at home in the busy city.

Available Models
The 2004 Volvo XC90 is offered in two models: 2.5T and T6 AWD.

Interior Features
The 2004 Volvo XC90 is a large, four-door midsize sport utility vehicle that can easily handle five passengers. 93.2 cubic feet of cargo volume is at your disposal.

The term innovative is justly applied to the XC90, as it has five automotive firsts: Roll Stability Control (RSC), an inflatable side curtain airbag for all three rows of seats, an integrated sliding center booster seat for children, seatbelts with pretensioners in all seating positions and the availability of a Dolby 5.1 Pro Logic II surround sound stereo system with a 305-watt Alpine amplifier and 12 premium speakers.

The options for 2004 include a rear-seat DVD player, a rear-obstacle detection system, a navigation system and more.

Exterior Features
The 2004 Volvo XC90's 17-inch wheels get a fresh styling update for the new model year. Shoppers can also choose optional 18-inch wheels.

The base 2.5T model has a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline 5-cylinder model. It produces 208 horsepower at 5000 rpm and 236 lb-ft of torque at 1500 rpm.

Top-line Volvo XC 90 T6 AWD models use a 2.9-liter turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine that cranks out 268 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 280 lb-ft of torque at 1800 rpm.
Both models feature automatic transmissions with a manual shift gate. The 2.5T gets a 5-speed system and the T6 AWD gets a 4-speed setup.

T6 AWD models have standard all-wheel drive, while 2.5T versions can upgrade from front-wheel drive to all-wheel drive.

Safety and Security
Like all Volvos, the 2004 XC90 is covered from head to toe with safety equipment. Standard features include traction control, dual front airbags, front side airbags, front and second-row curtain side airbags, antilock 4-wheel brakes and a rollover protection system with an antiskid feature.
