Volvo Teases Polestar Engineered S60 Model

2019 Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered Announced With More Power

The package will be applied to the T8 Twin Engine models - finding its way first onto the plug-in hybrid variant of the new S60, followed by the V60 and XC60. That's an increase of 11kW and 30Nm over the standard 298kW/640Nm T8 Twin Engine setup.

A revised ECU raises the total power output of the Polestar Engineered to 409bhp - at least in the United States, though Volvo sources say that UK cars should be roughly the same.

The gearbox and brakes get some Polestar tinkering too, as does the multi-link front and rear suspension, which also gets Öhlins adjustable shock absorbers as well as a strut bar design inherited from the Polestar 1 high-performance coupé.

The announcement comes one week before the company will reveal its new S60 premium sports sedan at the inauguration of its first U.S. manufacturing plant in Charleston, South Carolina.

Getting sober revives Danny's powers, and he tries to put them to good use by working with terminally ill hospice patients. At the time, the film was considered a box office disappointment, earning $44 million on a $19 million budget.

With Polestar Engineered, various aspects of the auto like the wheels, brakes, suspension and engine control unit are improved using Polestar's performance engineering expertise. The tweaks are also expected to improve refinement of the eight-speed automatic transmission and lower the fuel consumption.

Not to be confused with the new Polestar EV brand, Polestar Engineered trim will include new wheels, brakes, suspension and engine control units. The Brembo calipers are painted gold, peaking out from new lightweight wheels for the Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered. The yellow hue is to become the new hallmark color for Polestar. Polestar emblems, black chrome exhaust pipes and gold seat belts round out the package's visual enhancements.

As with recent fast Volvos, the S60 T8 will receive Ohlins dampers - in this case the very fancy DFV items - using a design that's shared with the Polestar 1. "All components have been fine-tuned to work together, delivering a responsive and exciting drivers' vehicle".
