Volvo has made its plans to integrate a V8 engine into its popular XC90 sport utility vehicle official this week, and in so doing directly targets other premium brands such as BMW, Cadillac and Mercedes-Benz, while also taking on Volkswagen's new Touareg SUV which also sports an optional V8.

When I started looking to replace my 12 year old Isuzu Trooper I went to a Volvo dealer to look at their SUV. When I asked whether or not the roof rack could fit my canoe the salesman actually said that I did NOT want to buy the Volvo because it had NO offroad capability. I said OK and left the lot without even getting into the truck (if you can call it that). Its a good thing I was only there to see how the Vovlo compared to the TReg. Obviously not very well in one critical area for an SUV.

wahoo99,
Big Joe did not write the article. I just posted it.
But it looked like a Yamaha engine to me.

What were you doing at a Volvo dealer in the first place?
