Safest SUV, Stop Crying about MPG
By Dave on
2008 Volvo XC90 V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
People, you're talking a Volvo not a Honda, you will live through a horrific crash, you will have 311hp, this vehicle is safe, and because of that it weighs as much as much larger SUV's so the 13-18 mpg isn't that bad. Stop crying about fuel economy, put your family in a Prius if that's important to you, if you want a truly safe, well built, nice looking SUV this is the truck for you! Remember you get what you pay for, there's a reason that this truck is over $50,000 without things like navigation and rear view cameras, because you are paying for safety! This is another of those "imports" that you can buy and still buy American, Volvo is a proud member of the Ford Motor Company!
Wood steering wheel, 6 speed auto, awesome exterior styling, 18" wheels, 311hp, tons of torque, 3 rows of seating, rear AC, many many cup holders, American owned (Ford motor company), ample interior space, drives a lot smaller than it's substantial and heavy size. Adjustable 2nd row seats (sliding).
Standard navigation, power folding mirrors, power folding third row seats, continue the awesome real wood accents throughout the cabin, projector headlights! Offer an extended wheel base (e.g. Mercedes GL Class). Although the 311hp is nice a diesel option would be economical for green cry babies.
