There was a time when wagons roamed the interstates ferrying families from
one National Lampoon vacation to another. With the rise of the crossover,
those looking for the original "looks practical but handles like a sedan"
mode of transport have few options and most of them live in the luxury
segment. Let's count them before we go too far. We have the
soon-to-be-cancelled TSX, the last-generation Cadillac CTS (the new wagon
may arrive next year) Jetta, E-Class, 3-Series and Prius V. Even if you
expand things to include "off-road wagons"the list only grows by three
(Allroad, Outback and XC70.) Despite the shrinking market, Volvo's brand
has long been associated with practical wagons that it's almost hard to
believe it has been three full years since Volvo sold one in America.
That's about to change with the 2015 V60.
Back in 2010 Volvo was selling two wagons in America. The V50 was based on
the compact S40 sedan and the V70 shared its soul with Volvo's 5-series
competitor the S80. Although the V70 is still sold in Europe and the V40
(the replacement for the V50) splashed down in 2013, Americans will have to
settle for Volvo's middle child: the V60 wagon. Based on Volvo's S60 sedan,
the V60 competes internationally with wagon variants of the 3-Series,
C-Class, Audi A4 and many others. But this is America and Volvo's only
direct competitor is the BWM 328i xDrive wagon. More on that later.
Despite ditching the boxy form years ago, Volvo's style remains the
automotive Birkenstock to BMW's Prada. The entire Volvo lineup in America
(except for the XC90) received a 2014 face lift with a more aggressive
grille and more creases in the hood. Volvo has finally tucked their radar
cruise control module behind a plastic panel that blends into the grille
rather than sticking out like a gray sore thumb. Out back we get bumper
cover integrates Exhausts, a large
black surround on the rear glass that made me wish it was separately
hinged, and a continuation of those oh-so-sexy Swedish hips. Volvo's
engineers kept the V60's roofline fairly high at the rear, but even the
Swedes have given in to modern "coupé" styling cues, most notable in the
greenhouse shape. The raked rear glass which looks sexier but takes a toll
on cargo space.
Birkenstocks are comfy. Prada? Hit and miss. (Or so I'm told.) And so it is
with Volvo and BMW interiors. The S60 on which the V60 is based is now 5
years old. Aside from massaging color and trim options, the only
substantive changes to the interior since it was launched is Volvo's LCD
disco dash, a new steering wheel with shift paddles (optional) and a new
gear shift knob. Despite its age, the Scandinavian chic cabin has what it
takes to complete with BMW, especially now that the 3-Series has gone
slightly down-market with more hard plastics in this generation. My only
major gripe is the small 7-inch infotainment display that is clearly
outclassed by BMW's ginormous iDrive screen.
The V60 has been priced aggressively for 2015 starting at $35,300 that's an
$800 upsell over then S60 and $6,150 less than a base 3-series wagon.
Adjusting for feature content, the base V60 is still $5,000 less. If
bargain wagons with premium badges are your thing, the TSX is king at
$31,985 starting but the delta shrinks to less than two grand when you
adjust for the V60's feature set. The $36,800 might be the more appropriate
competitor for the AWD-only 3-wagon, but a more interesting match up is the
$44,300 V60 T6 AWD. Configuring a 3 or the CTS wagon with the same
equipment you find on the Volvo will set you back at least $2,000 more. In
addition to the value factor, the Volvo brings 35% more power to the fight.
The extra power and AWD go a long way in compensating for the better weight
balance in the BMW or the Caddy. Since GM hasn't refreshed their wagon yet
the 3.0 and 3.6 liter V6 engined are outclassed in every metric by the
Swede. Option your V60 with every conceivable option and you end up at
As a former Volvo wagon owner I'm probably biased, but all the reasons I
opted for a Swedish cargo hauler in 2006 apply to the V60. Aside from the
fact that "value" strikes a fire in my loins, the Volvo is the clear
performance option in this segment. Want more shove than the $44,300 Volvo?
Pony up $64,900 for the CTS-V wagon or $102,370 for an E63 AMG wagon. I'll
reserve my final judgement until I can get my hands on one for a more
thorough evaluation, but in the mean time the V60 is quite simply the best
performance and value option in this phone booth sized segment.

New Volvo V40 2012 - Active TFT Display at instrument cluster
http://www.volvotips.com is the ultimate Volvo website which will contain
all info about classic Volvos! If you need any parts manuals, hints and
tips or service manuals you can view them at Volvotips.com. We're still
developing the website so stay tuned for extra info about your favorite
This video (made by Volvo) shows how the new customizable Active TFT
crystal display in the instrument cluster of the new 2012 Volvo V40 works.
The dash and interior of the new Volvo V40 are really nice and points out
the "Design around you"-concept perfectly. It's very easy to customize the
instrument cluster to the color you want and it's a very cool feature in my
opinion. The 3 standard modes (or better said: themes) are: Elegance
(brownish), Eco (blue/green) and Performance (red). Note: the customizable
Active TFT display is an option for a Volvo V40 and doesn't become as a
standard so you'll have to buy it as an accessory. On the more luxurious
models it's already installed. The new Volvo V40 is for sale at the local
dealer since August 2012 and has already Modelyear 2013.

Hemi Buildup on a '55 Chevy Bel Air! - Roadkill Ep. 29
In Episode 8 of Roadkill we introduced you to the greatest engine swap
project ever—a Hemi into a 1955 Chevy Bel Air. Nearly two years later, we
finally get Mike Finnegan's Mopar-powered Tri-Five on the road, but not
without a few problems along the way. Blown head gaskets, frayed wires, and
severe sleep-deprivation are all overcome as Finnegan, Freiburger, and
friends push to get this polarizing project car running again in time for
an epic road trip.
The BlaspHEMI '55 Chevy rides on a Jim Meyer Racing Gasser tube chassis
with Viking coilover dampers and Firestone Cheater slicks out back. Up
front the car has a tubular straight axle, parallel leaf springs and tires
small enough to fit on a VW Bug. The rear axle is a John's Industries
9-inch with 5.43:1 gears. The Hemi began life as a 528ci Mopar crate
engine, which Finnegan rebuilt with a 0.030-inch overbore, ported aluminum
heads, and a Comp Cams solid roller cam. The mill is topped off with a
Hilborn stack injection system with EFI controlled by a FAST EFI ECU. An
Aeromotive Stealth fuel tank and pump provides the fuel while MSD provides
the spark. The engine is backed by a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual gearbox
with an American Powertrain installation kit and a twin-disc clutch. The
car was wired with a Speedwires kit and the guys built their own fenderwell
headers using parts from Hedman.
To save weight, the original steel front clip was swapped out for a
lightweight fiberglass tilt front end from Unlimited Products and the
windows were replaced with lexan parts from ProGlass. The rollcage is a
10-point arrangement built from chrome-moly steel and TIG welded to the
floor and frame. To save a ton of time, High Tech Auto Wraps covered the
car in flat black vinyl instead of paint while the last of the parts were
installed onto the car.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

2015 Volvo S60 T6 FWD Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB
Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF
Volvo has always done things a little differently than BMW and Mercedes.
Rather than hold back updates and release them all in "mid-cycle
refreshes," Volvo prefers to let the changes dribble out slowly year after
year. As a result of this process a car can change significantly over time
but it happens so incrementally that to the casual observer it's still the
same car that launched four years ago. Such is the case for the 2015 Volvo
S60. Vurses the S60 launched just four short years ago (US launch was three
years ago in 2011), this S60 has new bumpers, hood, grille, seats,
dashboard, infotainment system, gauge cluster, headlamps, new and revised
safety systems, all-new engines, and a new 8-speed transmission. The
question before us today is: are these changes enough to keep the S60 fresh
and competitive while we wait for the complete model-line makeover we're
all expecting in the next few years?
