Apparently they're not doing as well moving those, and lease incentives are insane, basically same as T6. I too would be wary of owning this gen 1 hybrid technology out of warranty though, but that's the configuration that you want to look at if you're looking at an XC90.

My $0.02..
Right now the only way to get a T8 is to order one via their Concierge service and pick it up at the factory. They're going to do the same with the V90, whereas the V90 Cross Country will be regular-old deal-with-the-sleazy-car-salesman-at-the-dealership car buying experience.

And the T6 gets better gas mileage than the T8 did in C/D's recent testing. The T8 is nearly 500lbs heavier, with only 87 more hp helping out.

I'm trying to stay away from the silly add-ones as much as possible. That said, I want high-gloss black window trim ($230) and hitch (not silly). Also want aluminum door sill inserts (extra on Base) and maybe aluminum trim ($550 but not in my build).

Still only have Connect instead of full NAV.

Pretty sure I can get 6-7% discount with little effort.

Just playing for fun right now.
Yes, you can run the price up on a Porsche if you're not careful with the a la carte options. (Yikes!) My optioned Base build is $54,615 ($56,265 with 19" Turbo wheels) and my optioned S is $61,145 . . . both equipped essentially the same: White/Agate Gray standard seats, memory seats, Connect (no Nav), hitch, roof transport system, Bose, heated seats (F&R), PASM, model delete, painted wheel crests (got to have a little bling).

Just for grins I optioned a $126,000 Macan Turbo. Why anyone would do this, though, is beyond me.

I'm encouraging Fincher considers new/used. Let someone else pay for the first two years of depreciation.

Ford to revive Bronco SUV, Ranger pickup and make them in Mich.

DETROIT Ford Motor plans to revive the Ford Bronco sport-utility vehicle and Ford Ranger mid-size pickup truck in a strategic bet on a surge of American nostalgia, hefty vehicles and low gasoline prices.

The Ranger, which is currently available in some foreign markets, will hit U.S. showrooms with new styling and powertrain options in 2019. The Bronco will return to dealerships in 2020.
