Winter is coming, and Volvo has released pricing information for its upcoming V60 Cross Country station wagon, launched at the LA Auto Show and expected to go on sale during the first quarter of 2015. The V60 Cross Country is exactly what it sounds like; an all-wheel drive version of the V60 with some extra off-road bits in the form of skid plates front and back, plastic cladding for the wheelarches, and a ride height that's been raised by 2.6 inches. The V60 Cross Country will also be equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels wearing high profile rubber.
The V60 Cross Country will start at $41,925, which will place it well below the starting price of the range-topping V60 T6 AWD R-Design Platinum, which stickers for $49,475, but $5,250 above a base V60 T5 Drive-E.
The V60 Cross Country will make use of Volvo's 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder gas engine, which is good for 250 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. Volvo says that the Cross Country version should return a combined 23 mpg, though detailed EPA figures will be available closer to the car's launch in the states.
The V60 Cross Country will have a pretty impressive list of standard features including leather seats, a navigation system, a sunroof, Volvo's Sensus Connect connected car system, as well as the Volvo on Call telematics system.
Volvo will bring the all-new 2015 XC90 to the Los Angeles Auto Show alongside the V60 Cross Country, with the replacement for Volvo's largest offering scheduled to go on sale in April of next year. There should still be some snow on the ground by the time both new models hit showrooms.
