The 2022 XC90 is impressively powerful, offering four robust powertrain options:

  • T5 FWD (250-horsepower & 258 pound-feet of torque)
  • T5 AWD (250-horsepower & 258 pound-feet of torque)
  • T6 AWD (316-horsepower & 295 pound-feet of torque)

The Volvo XC90 provides peace of mind for you and your family on treacherous roadways, as safety comes standard. If there's a vehicle in your blind spot and you try to change lanes, the Blind Spot Information System with Steer Assist is designed to alert and gently steer you back into your lane. Plus, the Safety Assistance system is always watching. If it detects a potential hazard, such as a pedestrian or large animal, and you don't react in time, it can automatically apply the brakes to help avoid or mitigate a collision.


For the ultimate expressive luxury SUV, the 2022 XC90 revels in its available model configurations, boasting three unique designs, including the Momentum, Inscription, and R-Design models.

With elegant craftsmanship comes comfort for the whole family. Illuminated by natural light under the standard panoramic roof, the XC90's spacious cabin is tailored to fit your needs, as drivers can opt for the available six or seven-passenger seating configuration. The 6-seater option makes the third row more accessible than ever as passengers can walk through the wide middle aisle with ease. The seven-passenger configuration offers an integrated booster seat, allowing each member of the family to sit safely in luxury. Available with your choice of leatherette, leather, or Nappa perforated interior upholstery, the XC90 is easily customized to reflect your personality when seeking something modern or more sophisticated.


For premier connectivity, the XC90 offers drivers the ability to connect to Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. You'll be able to intuitively interact with popular apps like Waze navigation from the 9" Sensus Touchscreen. The digital driver display projects pertinent information directly in front of you and will even modify brightness based on the light conditions in your environment. For utmost convenience, voice control within the XC90 responds to natural speech, allowing you to seamlessly control the suite of technology features at your fingertips. Standard Pilot Assist makes driving easier by automatically maintaining a set distance from the car in front of you by adapting your speed. It can also help to keep you centered in your lane by automatically making small steering adjustments. And using map data from the car's navigation system, your car identifies hills and curves ahead and adapts the speed and road positioning to help optimize your comfort and safety when cornering.
