Since there is a sensor and taking a peek inside the 2021 model, uh you’re, not going to notice any huge design changes, which is a good thing.

These are some of the most comfortable seats i’ve ever set in in my life and the leather quality. Here is absolutely phenomenal. Now this cabin has won a lot of awards since it was introduced, and it does continue to be a lovely place to spend time in 2021. So across our upper dash, you will find a tailored leather dashboard.
Then you also have a big piece of napa leather that runs where your knee would rest against. So everything in here is really just absolutely lovely to look at and to touch now to start up the 2021 Volvo XC90. You have a twist button down here on the dash and you’ll notice, right from the start that difference by having the t8 recharge model, you’re, not going to hear the engine fire up.
So you notice the gauges are a little bit different on this 2021 Volvo XC90. You still have the 12.3 inch fully reconfigurable gauge cluster and you can change the stuff in the middle, like the map etc. However, with this t8 recharge you’ll notice. We have a special gauge over here this basically coaches, you into how to stay in full electric mode. Now, up top here, you’re, going to notice a head-up display. This is part of the advanced package and then checking out the steering wheel itself.
You have a nice felt lining, as well as a removable rubber lining at the bottom, and this is also where you & # 39. Ll, find your two charging usb ports. Now, when we get our big stack of coupons out, it is going to be a tight fit, but we’ll, see.
If we can make this work looks like it barely fits uh. We might squish them up just a little bit now. we do want to go ahead and talk about this region. This is what has changed for 2021 Volvo XC90, so they’ve redesigned this storage configuration our cup holders have moved back a little bit further to make room for a new wireless phone charging pad.
So let’s, go ahead and get you with some specs this. As far as the actual 2021 Volvo XC90 engine is going to be concerned, it’s, going to be the 2-liter turbo and super charged four-cylinder engine from the t6. From there we add two electric motors we have an 11.6 kilowatt hour battery pack, which is larger than back in 2019.
They upgraded it and all together. 400, horsepower is what that’s, going to be good for when they’re working in cahoots, you can put it in a sport mode and they’ll all work together to give you that maximum power yeah – and it Is worth noting that the range for just full electric is around 20 miles? So if you have a short commute, you could be fully electric in your 2021 Volvo XC90 going to work each day, which is definitely a cool benefit.
Now, of course not all of you guys are going to want a full electric or not a full electric, but a plug-in hybrid model uh. So there are different options for you, so the 2021 Volvo XC90 comes standard with the t5 that’s, going to be a 2-liter turbo. I4 250 horsepower 258 pound-feet of torque the vast majority of 2021 Volvo XC90. They’re, going to sell the t6, which adds a supercharger to that engine, to get you 310 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and then, as far as zero to 60, then performance difference between those t5 is seven and a half seconds.
T6 is 6.1 and then this t8 is 5.3, and once we get up here, we will go ahead and demonstrate what happens when they all work together. When you’re ready to have some fun and you’ve, you know deplete the battery a little bit. That very fast, very quick yeah. That was about 65 miles an hour that that acceleration there and you know one thing that we noticed is even when you know the of course the gas engine kicked in.
You could hear the battery still helping it out. So it’s, not just like a regular t6 when the engine kicks in. It also has that battery to boost the power up. This thing is really fast guys yeah, that was uphill to 60 miles an hour and no trouble at all.
Now we’re back cruising again. It goes straight back to the you know, electric mode, so the engine has now shut off and we’ll, go ahead and get a sound level meter kind of cruising here so, like you said, we’re, going around 45 right now And we’re, looking at 51.9 decibels going 45 now granted. That is a tiny bit slower than what we normally test at.
But 52 is one of that’s about the lowest you can get with the sound level meter. So very impressive, and we just kind of want to hammer in the fact of you know this is an 2021 Volvo XC90 and the thing it’s really really good at is being a luxury vehicle. So just the level quietness in here and refinement is great. As far as like the comfort level, we mean i’m incredibly comfortable right now. These seats are fantastic. The ride quality is fantastic heck.
