Get to Know the 2022 Volvo XC90 Luxury SUV

The 2022 Volvo XC90 is the largest and most expensive model in the automaker's lineup. We looked at this three-row SUV in a new light after substantial improvements for the 2020 model year. The plug-in hybrid version, in particular, changed from a hard pass to a must-have seemingly overnight. With top-notch interior materials, a pleasant ride, and an intriguing selection of powertrains, the Volvo XC90 should make the to-consider list of anyone looking at a midsize three-row luxury SUV.

What's New for the 2022 Volvo XC90?

The 2022 XC90 line receives additional standard features, like a navigation system in the base trim and a couple of new revamped packages and accents:

  • The Advance package has a 360-degree camera system, head-up display, and an enhanced air purification system
  • The Climate package now has a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and the previously-mentioned headlight cleaner
  • Models that previous had leather-wrapped steering wheels now offer leather-free wrapping

Trims and Powertrains

The 2022 Volvo XC90 is a three-row midsize luxury SUV. It comes with three trims-Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription-and three powertrains-T5, T6, and Recharge. The powertrains are paired with the different trims to enhance how each configuration performs and increase the number of included features.

  • The T5 has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque
  • The T6 upgrades to a turbocharged and supercharged version of that engine creating 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque
  • The Recharge uses the same engine as the T6 but adds an electric motor and battery pack producing a combined 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque

The T6 is a plug-in hybrid powertrain that can travel up to 18 miles on all-electric power before switching to gas power. All XC90s have an eight-speed automatic transmission. The T5 powertrain has a standard front-wheel driveline or optional all-wheel drive, while the T6 and Recharge are paired with standard all-wheel drivelines.


The XC90 is a three-row SUV seating up to seven passengers with a gorgeous interior designed for comfort and luxury. Select trims can be outfitted with second-row captain's chairs for up to six passengers. A powered panoramic sunroof, hands-free liftgate, and adaptive LED headlights that swivel in the direction of your steering wheel to illuminate poorly lit street curves are a few of the top-level amenities that make every drive an amazing one.

High-end materials make up each interior part from the front to the. Growing families will love the third row where their youngest can buckle in and get comfortable. It may be a snug fit for adults in the back, but the increased legroom of others in its class creates more room for pre-teens and adults. The structured shape provides generous cargo space for groceries, packages, luggage, and personal gear, while personal storage throughout the cabin isn't as bountiful. Other interior amenities you'll find, starting with the base Momentum trim, include:

  • Heated front seats (all-wheel drive only)
  • Faux leather upholstery (T5) or leather upholstery (T6 and Recharge)
  • Four-zone automatic climate control
  • Driver's seat memory settings
