Outside, the XC90 gets new color-coordinated trim with revised bumpers, sill moldings and wheel arches. In addition, standard LED running lights and tail lamps add a fresh-tech look. Base XC90s receive a new silver front "bumper bar"ť and chrome and silk matte exterior trim. Two new colors, Twilight Bronze and Flaminco Red, are on the options list.
The XC90's cabin gains new sanded silver aluminum inlays and white instrument lighting, as well as a leather tailgate strap. The higher-end Premium Plus and Platinum trim levels receive special Sovereign hide soft leather and walnut wood, while a revised wood rimmed steering wheel is newly available.
The 3.2 and R-Design trim levels return from last year, both powered by a 3.2-liter inline-six with 240 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of twist. A six-speed automatic handles shifting duties. The FWD 3.2 will start at $40,395, while the FWD R-Design commands $43,195. Both prices represent increases of $1120 from the 2012 model. An available AWD system adds $2000 to either trim.
