In North America, the Volvo Brick family first appeared with the 140 in the 1968 model year, and the sensibly square Swedes remained on sale here through the last of the S90s and V90s (formerly known as the 960) in 1998. I’ve managed to find junkyard examples of all of these cars, including such oddities […] The post Junkyard Find: 1970 Volvo 164 appeared first on The Truth About Cars ..read more

These Are the Best New Cars for OVER $90,060
The Truth About Cars | Latest Volvo Reviews and News
by Jo Borrás
2y ago
Before we get to this list of “best luxury cars”, I feel like you might be wondering about that headline. Why $90,060? I chose that number because the ceiling for my “best cheap cars” post was based on half the average selling price of a new car (more or less), and arbitrarily decided to keep […] The post These Are the Best New Cars for OVER $90,060 appeared first on The Truth About Cars ..read more

by Chris Tonn

There’s a meme floating around, as memes do, with little localized variants. The one I see here in my little slice of Ohio reads something like: “Treat yourself like Interstate 70. Never stop working on yourself, no matter how much it inconveniences others.” Like most humor, there’s a bit of truth there – it always […] The post 2021 Volvo XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered Review: A Hot Hatch for the PTA President? appeared first on The Truth About Cars ..read more

Quantum Leaps: Geely Saves Saab Instead of Volvo

These days, it’s hard to imagine a company better positioned to take on Tesla than Geely-owned Volvo and Polestar. Volvo made headlines back in 2015 when it promised that all new Volvos would be electrified starting in 2019 and ruffled more feathers when it spun off its successful motorsports brand, Polestar, into a purely electrified […] The post Quantum Leaps: Geely Saves Saab Instead of Volvo appeared first on The Truth About Cars ..read more

Ever since I began my effort to document some of the interesting machinery that shows up in car graveyards, the quantity of discarded Volvo 240s has remained steady. Back in the late 2000s, I’d had an idea that just about every 240 owner would make the transition from safe and sensible Swedish bricks to green […] The post Junkyard Find: 1979 Volvo 245 DL With 338,475 Miles appeared first on The Truth About Cars ..read more

Rare Rides: Bertone by Any Other Name, the 1979 Volvo 262C
The Truth About Cars | Latest Volvo Reviews and News
by Corey Lewis
2y ago
Today’s Rare Ride is an example of the first time Bertone added heaps of Italian build quality to an ordinary Volvo midsize. We’ve covered Bertone’s second effort (the 780) long ago, so it’s past time we talk 262C. Though Volvo fancies itself upscale today, the company was not a luxury manufacturer in the Seventies. The […] The post Rare Rides: Bertone by Any Other Name, the 1979 Volvo 262C appeared first on The Truth About Cars ..read more

When I’m searching car graveyards for interesting examples of automotive history, discarded rear-wheel-drive Volvos from the Swedish Brick era (roughly 1967 through 1998) have been easy enough to find over the last decade. Yes, 140s, 200s, 700s, 900s— I’ve been able to document each type. Even the pre-brick Amazon isn’t so hard to find in […] The post Junkyard Find: 1964 Volvo PV544 Sport appeared first on The Truth About Cars ..read more
