New Volvo S80: T6 Turbo With AWD

May 10, 2007

The new Volvo S80 will soon be available with a six-cylinder, 285 bhp T6 performance engine and all-wheel drive. The T6 petrol engine is based on the compact 3.2-liter in-line aluminum engine that has been part of the S80 engine range since its 2006 introduction. The turbo version has a displacement of 3.0 liters, producing 285 bhp and no less than 295 lb/ft of torque. Maximum torque is on tap from just 1,500 rpm and remains available all the way up the rev range, resulting in remarkably quick acceleration and smooth drivability. The smaller cylinder displacement of the turbo version, owing to the slightly narrower cylinder bore and shorter stroke, is compensated by the turbocharger which in this engine takes in exhaust gases in two stages. The inflow is divided into two lots of three cylinders each–a system known as twin-scroll technology. The T6 model in the Volvo S80 is also equipped with Volvo's All Wheel Drive. Using an electronically controlled hydraulic clutch, the system distributes drive between the front and rear wheels to ensure the best possible road grip in all situations.
