The coolest Volvo XC90 you'll ever see
11/5/2004

Could a performance version of the Volvo XC90 be that far off?

Check out the concept we saw in Vegas...










Volvo XC90 PUV

First unveiled at the Paris Auto Show in September, Volvo's refined V8-powered XC90 has undergone a radical transformation for the 2004 SEMA show. Boasting a lowered stance, an aggressive body styling treatment and high performance wheels and tires, the XC90 Power Utility Vehicle (PUV) takes Volvo's hottest selling vehicle to the next level. But the transformation is more then skin deep. Still a work in progress, the V8 is slated to eventually produce 650 horsepower through its six-speed automatic "Geartronic" transmission and standard electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system.

The XC90 PUV, however, is still a Volvo. Meaning that wrapped within its eye-popping new looks are a number of state-of-the-art safety systems. Introduced with no fewer than five automotive world's firsts when it debuted two years ago, the Volvo XC90 was the first SUV to the market with standard Roll Stability Control (RSC), head curtain airbags for all three rows of seats, pyrotechnically charged pretensioning seatbelts in all seating positions and an incredible Dolby Pro Logic surround sound stereo system.

Nice, but will it be like Prodrive and come out making people drool, and then leave them with nothing.

Instead of an authentic "Scuderia Shield," it's a Moose crossing sign.
XC PUV = "Cross-Country Power Utility Vehicle" just to be different.

Bundling XC90 with 650HP engine makes about as much sense as mating a lawn mower motor to a bar stool. :roll:
Although apparently they've done that too.
