The Volvo XC90 makes pure aesthetic changes along with larger functional ones. The XC90 renames its T8 hybrid engine to the "Recharge", makes some changes to the base trim, and tweaks some of the upper trim level offerings. What hasn't changed is the suave Scandinavian design and ample tech, comfort, and safety offerings.

What's New

The full list of changes is extensive but mostly limited to minor changes. To start, the base Momentum trim gets several new standard features. The Momentum now comes equipped with active bending lights, high pressure cleaning, front parking sensors, a programmable care key, and hazard light/slipper road alerts. The new standard features don't stop there! Indeed, the new Volvo XC90 also adds two USB-C ports to the second row. Moving away from the Momentum trim, we see the new XC90 changing some upgraded components to its Bowers & Wilkins audio system along with changing the T8 engine name to the "Recharge".

XC90 Engine Options

The XC90 doesn't make changes to its engine lineup (other than in name). The 2021 XC90 features the same three engines, all of which can be paired with any of the trim levels. The base T5 engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 powertrain that makes 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. If that's not enough, then the XC90 offers drivers a supercharged variant, which provides 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque (T6). Clocking in as the most powerful and the only hybrid is the top-level Recharge engine. The Recharge is a 2.0-liter turbocharged/supercharged inline-4 hybrid that makes 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque. All engines work with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The base T5 engine is available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive while the T6 and Recharge engines come equipped with all-wheel drive.
