2022 Volvo XC90: Launch, Release Date, Features


Here's something to get excited about — the 2022 Volvo XC90 redesign is coming soon. Perhaps it's the all-electric XC90 you're most looking forward to or maybe it's the advanced supercomputer and platform update. There's far more to it than just that, so buckle up; we're going to take a look at the entire story behind the 2022 Volvo XC90 and the changes she'll be arriving with. To do that, though, we need to first look at the current model you'll find in our inventory of the new Volvo XC90 for sale.

Simply put, the XC90 is the largest Volvo SUV. That's due to her flagship status, and the XC90 tops off the Volvo SUV range with a remarkable assortment of premium materials, luxury features, advanced tech, and much more. Every Volvo SUV carries such an assortment, so being able to stand on top speaks volumes. For more details, just know that every XC90 packs competitive driver assists, plenty of horsepower, efficiency, seating for eight, and massive cargo space, along with luxury features like available massaging front seats.

Sounds good, doesn't it? Well, with the 2022 Volvo XC90 redesign things are only going to get better. You'll find new models on their way for 2022, like the all-electric C40 Recharge, alongside an all-electric XC90, too. When the day comes, we'll be happy to help you explore these new additions in person at our Volvo dealer near Apex. But for now, let's look deeper into the 2022 XC90.

The 2022 Volvo XC90 Redesign May Kick Off a New Generation

The 2021 XC90 you currently see on sale is a member of the nameplate's second generation. Introduced in 2015, this generation revamped the styling with sleek looks, redesigned the chassis and interior, and added new powertrains like the Volvo XC90 plug-in hybrid. Now, rumors of a third-generation have been circulating - though we can not confirm this. The second generation could also carry on, and this is likely the case. That's because the first generation XC90 lasted on sale for a total of 12 years.

There are confirmed generation changes, though, and they involve the platform underpinning the XC90. Dubbed the Volvo Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, Volvo vehicles including the XC90 SUV and V60 wagon have been built atop the SPA platform since its introduction. Now, a second-generation called the SPA2 is on its way. The 2022 Volvo XC90 redesign will be using it as a basis.

Another detail worth noting is that SPA2 and 2022 Volvo XC90 production will occur in Ridgeville, SC. That means you'll be getting a Scandinavian-developed, American-made luxury vehicle.

The 2022 Volvo XC90 Release Date Will Bring All-Electric Power to The Table

No 2022 Volvo XC90 spy shots have been seen yet, but we do know that the redesign will involve a sleeker front and rear end. What we also know, but don't have many details on, would be the all-electric XC90 arriving for 2022. This is the path Volvo Cars is following, as by 2025, an aim of having a 50% all-electric lineup was set forward. You can see this in models like the XC40 Recharge and the forthcoming C40 Recharge.

No official battery specs or electric performance have been released yet. Still, if our inventory of the already remarkable Volvo XC90 hybrid for sale is anything to go off of, she'll be well worth the wait.

The Remarkable Tech You'll Find in a 2022 Volvo XC90 Interior

At the core of the SPA2 platform, and therefore the 2022 Volvo XC90 redesign, an AI-powered supercomputer lies in wait. Many drivers near Apex choose a Volvo vehicle for the competitively advanced driver assists and tech features inside, and that's only going to get better. Updating the radar-based Volvo Pilot Assist system, the new Highway Pilot system will use a light-based LiDAR system in tandem with the supercomputer to achieve Level 4 autonomous driving capabilities. Your attention will still be required on the road, but this system is a standout showcase of the technological achievements Volvo vehicles come equipped with.

More updates are coming soon, so stay tuned for details like the release date, battery range for the electric XC90, and many more. Of course, we're excited to see the 2022 Volvo XC90 redesign in person, and we'd be just as excited for you to test drive and explore all that one will offer once she arrives on our lot.
