The 2023 Volvo XC60 redesign is a mid-cycle refresh for a sleek Volvo vehicle that looks great on the road and helps you save at the pump. The vehicle traded out its gasoline-only powertrains for mild-hybrid versions for the 2022 model year, which carries over into the 2023 model. The car does, however, gain some new nomenclature to describe its various available trims.

The plug-in hybrid version of the car returns as the 2023 Volvo XC60 Recharge. We expect that this vehicle will eventually be offered as an all-electric SUV, but for the time being, it seems that role is still reserved for the Volvo XC40. This article will go in-depth on the trims we expect to see as part of the 2023 Volvo XC60 redesign, the specs of the vehicle, and the projected release date.

2023 Volvo XC60 Trim Levels

While the 2023 Volvo XC60 redesign is not a complete overhaul of the vehicle, it does offer new trims to consider. We do not have the full range of details about the 2023 Volvo XC60 trim levels just quite yet, but we'll share what we already know — alongside some of our speculation.

2023 Volvo XC60 B5 Core

The B5 powertrain is the base option for the vehicle, and the "Core" appellation leads us to believe that this trim will be the base model of the 2023 version of the Volvo SUV. We expect it to pair a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with a mild-hybrid battery-and-motor system to achieve 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

The Volvo XC60 B5 Core will be replete with features despite its status as the base model. We think it will have an eight-speed automatic transmission that pairs with front-wheel drive. It will have modern features like smartphone connectivity, a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot, and convenient features like remote start.

2023 Volvo XC60 B5 Plus Bright

This trim will use the same powertrain as the Core model, but we expect it to have more luxury features. The term "Bright" makes us think that this vehicle's interior will have light-toned leather. We expect that heated seats and a heated steering wheel will be optional and that the vehicle will have the usual suite of safety features we've come to expect from Volvo Cars. These include:

  • Rear-view camera
  • Blind-spot monitor
  • Lane-departure warnings
  • Lane-keeping assistance system
  • Automated emergency braking

2023 Volvo XC60 B5 Plus Dark

We don't know if the Dark version of the B5 model of the 2023 Volvo XC60 will be above, below, or next to the Bright version on the trims tree. We think that it is likely to have the same features lineup as the Bright model and that the major point of difference between the two will be aesthetic. Industry experts do expect these B5 trims to offer leather interiors; we think this version will have black or dark brown leather upholstery.

2023 Volvo XC60 B6 Ultimate Bright

The B6 powertrain takes the same configuration found on the B5 models and adds a supercharger to the mix. This should raise the horsepower output to 295 ponies and increase the torque to 310 pound-feet. The B6 powertrain versions of the car enjoy all-wheel drive as a standard offering. We also expect to see real wood interior trim and extra luxury features such as standard heated and ventilated front seats on this trim.

2023 Volvo XC60 B6 Ultimate Dark

Like the Dark version of the B5 models, we expect this vehicle version to be equivalent to the Bright B6 trim but with a different aesthetic. The interior wood accents may be darker, and the leather will be the same. We're excited to see precisely what Volvo Cars has in store for the 2023 Volvo XC60 redesign.

2023 Volvo XC60 Recharge

We're glad to have heard that the 2023 Volvo XC60 redesign will keep the Recharge version of the vehicle. This plug-in hybrid is even more fuel-efficient than the B5 and B6 mild-hybrid car versions. It uses the T8 powertrain, which pairs a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a powerful lithium-ion battery pack and electric motors to get over 400 horsepower.

The 2022 version of the Volvo XC60 offers a trio of available Recharge models. We are not sure what to expect of the 2023 lineup, given the newly available trims. We might see a 2023 Volvo XC60 Recharge Core, Bright, and Dark, but that's just our speculation.

2023 Volvo XC60 Release Date

The exact 2023 Volvo XC60 release date has not yet been announced, but we expect the car to arrive at dealerships around the country in late 2022. That means we're only about half a year out from the release of this sleek new Volvo SUV — we can hardly wait to see the results of the 2023 Volvo XC60 redesign.

When can you order a 2023 Volvo XC60?

The precise day on which the 2023 Volvo XC60 will be released has not yet been announced. Industry experts do, however, expect the car to be available to the public in late 2022. That means pre-orders are liable to open up any day now — reach out to us to get on our list. We'll contact you when the pre-orders open so that you can ensure you place at the front of the line. Given the current difficulties getting materials to build new cars, you'd do well to move quickly to secure your new 2023 Volvo XC60.

What does B5 mean on Volvo XC60?

The B5 powertrain is a fuel-efficient mild-hybrid powertrain. It consists of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that sports a turbocharger and a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that pairs an electric motor and a battery for excellent gas mileage. The design makes 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. That's enough to send your new Volvo XC60 zipping down the road. Perhaps best of all, this sleek SUV looks great doing so.
