Volvo S60 Denver Wheel & Tire Options | Rickenbaugh Volvo

Often the most reliable mechanical designs on the planet are produced in Sweden. Take for example watches, knives and nonetheless, cars. Cars coming out of Sweden are produced with a high standard of quality and mechanical performance and while they are reliable, they are also sleek in their design and strong on the road. In the vast line of cars that Volvo has to offer, there is something that is new and stylish which houses the various technologies that are being used in the most new and up to date vehicles that are on the market. The new, Volvo S60 Denver is a sporty looking car with an aerodynamic shape in its design. It has a pointed and shapely nose with contours running along the hood and making a smooth transition into the remainder of the body. The exterior shape rolls downward off the trunk and the rear end has a flatter surface. The Volvo S60 Denver has a starting price of about $32,400 and for that price, its interior and new technology designs are above average and worth the cost. These can be viewed at any Volvo Dealership in Denver.

Volvo S60 Denver Front or All-Wheel Drive Selections
There are a few things to note about the Volvo S60 Denver that regard its variety of styles that are available at a Volvo Dealership in Denver. There are three specific types of this sports sedan and those are the Volvo T5, the Volvo T6 AWD and the Volvo T6 AWD R-Design. These three different styles have some interesting qualities and attributes to them which offer more power along with some more luxury and functionality options, as well. Mainly the difference between these few trim options is in the drivetrain and also the power output and engine size, as well. The options among the wheels vary and for the first and most basic trim version there is front wheel drive, however, the T5 is available with the option of all-wheel drive which will make the vehicle a bit more capable in terms of its performance on and off road. The T6 and the T6 R-Design come standard with all wheel drive and their engines differ from the basic model. The Basic model is equipped with a strong, 2.5 liter engine that is a 5 cylinder layout. This is unique for most cars that are sold in America as we do not usually see 5 cylinder vehicles being made. The next two trim models are fitted with a 6 cylinder, turbo charged engine, however, the R-Design has 25 more horsepower than the regular T6.

Volvo S60 Denver Innovative Wheel-System Designs
One of the most amazing things about the latest Volvo S60 Denver sports vehicle is that it has a load of technologies including some of the latest in the various electronic features. Some of the most important and useful technologies are attached to the drivetrain and wheels with things like Instant Traction which comes with the Haldex all-wheel drive system. This Instant Traction is on the ball with real time monitoring. It keeps track of the engine speeds, wheel speed, braking systems and throttle to make minor adjustments that will make a world of difference in the vehicle’s safety and performance. The adjustments made are such that the wheels which are getting more traction will get more power allotted to them so that strength and performance is not diminished. This consequently saves on gasoline and makes the engine operations more practical. Another innovative aspect about the wheel and drivetrain technology is that the brakes have an energy regeneration system. That is where energy that is used while braking is harnessed and transferred back to the battery when the brakes are released. This is said to reduce fuel emissions and it obviously saves on battery power when the vehicle is in operation.

Volvo S60 Denver Tire Additions
As mentioned previously, the Volvo S60 Denver is capable of some innovative features and designs that increase its performance and safety, but there are some other features not yet mentioned. Snow chains on a Volvo’s tires are a delight and a great advantage in the snowy seasons of the year. This easy-to-install addition greatly enhances the tire performance on the Volvo S60 Denver during the winter. For traveling in extreme conditions there are also snow socks that can be easily pulled over the tires. Even the all-wheel drive versions of the Volvo S60 can be at the relentless whims of winter, especially in Colorado, so the addition of snow socks are a great advantage. The available snow socks are made of a highly durable fiber and some innovative technology is used to create them. They are pretty simple to install and remove at any given time and during their use, they become a bit rougher to provide for better surface traction in the snow. Take a look at the new S60 at Rickenbaugh Volvo today.

Volvo S60 Denver Winter Driving | Rickenbaugh Volvo

Winter is only half over. Now the temptation is great to park the Volvo S60 in Denver until spring and opt instead for a truck or SUV to get thru the winter snows, slush and stormy weather of which everyone knows there’s still plenty more to come. However, with a little careful thought and planning before the snow and ice in the coming storms start to fly, the Volvo S60 Denver, Volvo Dealership in Denver at Rickenbaugh Volvo, could be all you need for the rest of winter. The leading sporty, dynamic midsize luxury sedan in its class, the Volvo S60 in Denver combines great performance and beautiful design inside and out with the latest technology and the best available safety features to deliver a truly great vehicle. Those safety features in the Volvo S60 help make winter weather driving safer for the driver and passengers alike, even in the worst of winter conditions. The Volvo S60 in Denver and throughout Colorado could be enough for whatever the rest of winter might bring.

Volvo S60 Denver  Snow Tires
Of course, some winter conditions are so bad that it’s advisable, if possible, to not drive at all in any vehicle. However, in such circumstances when driving can’t be avoided, the best advice out there for driving the Volvo S60 during the winter months is all about the tires. Snow tires, that is. The Volvo S60 experts say winterizing the Volvo S60 means installing a good set of snow tires, front and back. Why? Snow tires installed on a Volvo S60 provide three things for the Volvo S60 to drive well in all that fresh snow. First, snow tires provide tread depth, more tread depth than nonwinter tires. Second, snow tires provide tread design, especially those that come with a directional style tread that throws off slush and snow. Snow tires also provide more siping to chew through snow and ice. Third, snow tires provide tread compound that in cold weather remains flexible even in very cold weather. Nonwinter tires can become hard and less able to grip the road, which can spell trouble in snow. Those snow tires, combined with the proven reliability of the Volvo S60 can make all the difference in driving the Volvo S60 thru drifting fresh snow.

Volvo S60 Colorado Strategies
In addition to snow tires, driving in winter certainly requires quite a lot of common sense driving habits, especially in big winter storms. Such winter storms may be anticipated, allowing drivers to plan for sever inclement weather. However, everyone knows the stories of storms that arrive without warning. With the Volvo S60, it’s possible to prepare for such situations. Drivers of the Volvo S60 also can utilize important winter driving strategies to insure greater safety while driving or riding in the Volvo S60. One strategy is simply anticipating what may come in upcoming moments while driving or riding in the Volvo S60. Anticipation is a great way to avoid collisions and other accidents. Winter also is a good time to cut down on distractions while driving, such as using a cell phone, playing the radio (though it’s best to keep it tuned to a good weather station), or eating while driving, all of which inhibit the driver’s ability to fully anticipate what may come in upcoming moments. Other strategies for winter driving the Volvo S60 is to use a good ice scraper to clear all windows; drive slow; fill up on windshield washer fluid; add some weight, such as sand bags, to the back; keep the Volvo S60 in good repair and avoid night driving.

Volvo S60 Colorado Engine Choices
It also is important to consider the kind of power that comes with every Volvo S60 that can help mitigate many inclement driving conditions. The choice of engine in the Volvo S60 is trim driven. The 2014 Volvo S60 T5 or Premier trims come powered by a standard five-cylinder turbocharged 250-horsepower engine paired with front-wheel drive and an automatic transmission. T6 or Premier Plus 2014 Volvo S60 sedans come with an even more-powerful six-cylinder turbocharged engine while the T6 R-Design trims come with engine choices that rev it up to 325 horse powers.  T5 or Premier trims of the 2014 Volvo S60 can get from zero to 60 miles per hour in 6.4 seconds with an EPA estimated fuel economy of 21 miles per gallon in town, 30 miles per gallon on the highway. All trim levels are offered in All-Wheel-Drive editions, exceptionally helpful in inclement weather driving conditions.

Volvo S60 Colorado Safety Features
Another consideration for surviving severe winter driving conditions is the kind of safety features equipped in every Volvo S60 that could well help mitigate the danger involved in winter driving. So recently awarded the 2013 Top Safety Pick+ accolade by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the S60 personifies Volvo’s long dedication to auto safety on the road. Advanced IntelliSafe Technology includes features like City Safety and Pedestrian Detection, which help prevent slow-moving collisions with smart automatic braking. There’s also the wide array of other safety features, such as the Innovative radars behind the grille that detect pedestrians and bikers. The new Adaptive Digital TFT Display allows for dash customization. There’s also the Blind Spot Information System Package and an enhanced Tire Pressure Monitoring System. The Technology Package Volvo offers in the 2014 Volvo features adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, driver-attention warning, Collision Warning with Full Auto Brake, and Cyclist Detection/Pedestrian Detection

Volvo S60 in Denver winter driving | Rickenbaugh Volvo

Of course we all know that the entry level luxury sport sedan segment is full of very talented, attractive, and well known entries. While many of the best known players come from Germany, Japan and America, let us not forget that the Swedish built 2014 Volvo S60 in Denver is capable of more than holding it’s own in the entry level luxury sports sedan market. This has never been more true than in the 2014 model year where the Volvo S60 from your Volvo Dealership in Denver gets bit of a makeover, resulting in a lower and leaner look. The exterior isn’t the only area that gets this attention though, the cabin has received some fresh new changes as well. You will find new instruments, new seats and the addition of some metallic accents to round out the inside. You also get a an upgraded tire pressure monitoring system and much gentler and brighter white back lighting instead of the traditional Volvo green. The Volvo S60 has received a bit of a new lease with fresh new option packages as well, and the sport mode on the T6 version has gotten a bit of a performance boost with new and quicker transmission shift times. As we can see the Volvo S60 from Rickenbaugh Volvo is certainly a force to be reckoned with in the sports luxury segment, but none of this means anything if you can’t use your new Volvo S60 in the winter time. After all, we are all Colorado drivers right, and we know that the wintertime isn’t just business as usual when it comes to your commute.

Respectable Power
First and foremost, you have to know that your Volvo S60 in Denver can power its way out of a snow drift, and the performance area is where we will find all of that data. The 2014 Volvo S60 from your Volvo Dealership in Denver T5 comes with a 2.5 liter turbocharged inline 5 cylinder motor that gives us 250 horsepower and 266 lb ft of torque. This is plenty of power to get your wheels turning even when your Volvo S60 is up to the rockers in snow. The T5 also comes with a standard 6 speed auto trans and a front wheel drive drivetrain. For those who do a little more driving in the areas that the snow plows don’t hit first there is an all wheel drive option as well. The T5 can accelerate for zero to sixty in just 6.4 seconds, although with the AWD this bumps up to 6.6 seconds. The fuel economy comes in at 24 combined for the FWD and 23 combined for three AWD, this is not a bad bit of economy when you consider the kind of respectable power you get from this base model of the Volvo S60 from Rickenbaugh Volvo.

Massive Sports Performance
You can step the power up a little bit more and get yourself into the T6 AWD. You can probably figure out from the name that the Volvo S60 in Denver T6 AWD comes standard with AWD. If you were really paying attention then you also could probably foretell that the Volvo S60 T6 AWD also comes with an inline 6, replacing the inline 5 that comes in the Volvo S60 T5. The Volvo S60 T6 is also turbo charged for that extra boost when you need it. You will get up to 300 horse in the Volvo S60 T6 and 325 lb ft of torque. That is massive sports performance that can get you out of any kind of drift that yo might find yourself in and is sure to prove itself even more fun in the summertime when you can really open up the throttle and show some of the hairpin Rocky mountain corners what’s for. The Volvo S60 from your Volvo Dealership in Denver T6 can reach 60 from 0 in just 5.9 seconds You can also step it up just a little more with the Volvo S60 T6 R-Design. With the R-Design you will get the same engine as the regular T6 AWD, but with a little more performance tuning. The MPG stays the same, but the power goes through the roof to 325 horses and 354 lb ft of torque.

Ultimate in Safety
Where the Volvo S60 in Denver can really shine is in the safety department. Volvo has long been known as one of the safest vehicles on the road and that is for some very good reasons.

The Volvo S60 is a top choice.

Volvo S60 in Denver Interior Features | Rickenbaugh Volvo

The Volvo S60 in Denver has just received a new look and new lease on life. This redesign has truly made the Volvo S60, from your Volvo Dealership in Denver, a sports sedan in each and every sense of the word. The Volvo S60 has never lacked in power, or in handling, yet the looks of the Swedish sports sedan, while not being unattractive were far from what most people would consider “sporty.” This is no longer the case with a new look for the powerful yet safety minded machine. While some of the signature lines that we have come to associate with the Volvo badge are still there the overall look is much less boxy and gives feeling of superior aerodynamics and makes the Volvo S60 look as if it’s speeding down the highway even when it’s just parked at the store. This market segment is full of competition from all over the world, yet the Volvo S60 manages to stand it’s ground as a solid competitor more than ever before with it’s bold new design and with some other great improvements to the overall vehicle that makes the Volvo S60 not just a great choice for the safety conscious driver, as it has always been, but for anyone looking for a great all around sedan with a bit of extra bite when the road is calling you.

Volvo S60 in Denver

Volvo S60 in Denver abundance of features
While there are an abundance of features that make the Volvo S60 in Denver stand out from the rest of the crowd in the sports sedan market we are going to focus, today, on the interior features that make the Volvo S60, from your Volvo Dealership in Denver, such a great choice for anyone looking to make their way into the higher end of the entry level sports sedan market. First off we have to take a look at the interior materials that grace the cabin of this sporty machine. In line with the overall attitude of Volvo the Volvo S60 offers the standard fare that you would expect from a sports sedan like leather, wood, and metallic trim, but then it takes them in a different direction than any of the competitors in the market. The door trim panels, for example, use a very high quality leather but they have a much more defined grain then what we are typically used to in a vehicle. Not only does this show the quality of the material, but it also gives the Volvo S60 a little more personality than many of it’s rivals. The Volvo S60 does make use of vinyl and plastic in it’s interior, yet these are not the cheap materials that you might expect out of some of the lower end sedans on the market, even when using more cost effective materials to help keep your sticker shock to a minimum the Volvo S60 from Rickenbaugh Volvo still delivers high quality goods.

Volvo S60 in Denver intuitive and simple
One of the features that has been a very well received on all of the Volvo models of recent years and which continues on the Volvo S60 in Denver is the very easy to distinguish and use electronics and adjustment controls. The Volvo S60, from your Volvo Dealership in Denver, still features the “Mode Man” which is a small pictographic representation of the different climate control modes which you can select for your optimal comfort while driving the stunning new Volvo S60. The mode man is just a highlight of what seems to be the focus for the Volvo S60 control scheme, easy, intuitive controls for everything that you need to access for the most comfortable ride possible. The audio controls, just like the climate controls are in a simple and intuitive layout which makes operation of the audio system a breeze. The buttons are a bit small, which can be annoying for some drivers, but I think most Volvo S60 buyers will find them more than adequate. The navigation system of the Volvo S60 from Rickenbaugh Volvo is a huge leap forward from the previous generations. The older generation of Volvo S60 having a much maligned system which did not have the most user friendly of useful navigation software. The new system, is a much more modern version, and in keeping with the rest of the theme of the Volvo S60 controls it is quite simple to use with an intuitive and simple interface.

Volvo S60 in Denver superior ride
One area where the Volvo S60 in Denver has always shone above the competition is in the comfort and ergonomics of their seating. The new generation of the Volvo S60 is no different. Not only do you get the high quality materials that we discussed earlier, but the support offered by the interior of the Volvo S60 from Rickenbaugh Volvo makes it the ideal vehicle if you are wont to take longer road trips or have a decent daily commute. Any way you look at it, the Volvo S60 is a superior ride at a great price.

2014 Volvo S60 in Denver and Littleton Body Design | Rickenbaugh Volvo

The 2014 Volvo S60 in Littleton from Rickenbaugh Volvo has one of the most unique appearances and is possibly the most unique vehicle in the entry level luxury sedan category. The inline powertrain setup is something you won’t find from any of the competitors in the class. The styling, however, is what really sets the 2014 Volvo S60 in Denver well ahead of the competition that you might be looking at in the luxury sedan category. In no way resembling the German or American luxury sedans that have for so long dominated the market the Volvo S60 is a purely Swedish vehicle. If you are like me you are tired of seeing the same body style rolling around with different badges on it everywhere you look and the Volvo S60 from Rickenbaugh Volvo is quite refreshing. While the styling may be unique the power is similar to the rest of the categories. This is not a bad thing considering the rest of the class does boast some quite impressive power numbers. It may seem somewhat odd but to be  real contender a luxury sedan has to pack some serious sportiness, and the Volvo S60 certainly does that through its inline powertrains. The newest model of the Volvo S60 from your Volvo Dealership in Denver has sharpened up its exterior lines somewhat and I think you will be pleased with the results. Don’t worry if you were a fan of the old design, the trademark dropped fenders and long straight body are all still there , but the drops have become much more elegant and the body line that was a bit too embellished for my taste has been subdued just enough to know that this is a Volvo, but a Volvo that has thrown off the title of a boring sedan and stepped firmly into the stylish category.

Denver Volvo Model Lineup2014 Volvo S60 in Denver and Littleton Improved Overall Styling
As we mentioned the body of the 2014 Volvo S60 in Denver has had some changes for the most current iteration. While these may seem drastic at first look, when you look a little closer you will discover that the design is really not all that different from the classic 2014 Volvo S60 in Littleton design that you have come to know and love. Where previously the Volvo S60 was not necessarily the most pretty vehicle to look at the reduction of some of the drastic lines has improved overall styling ten fold. The lines that have been there for years are all still there, yet they have been gracefully designed so that they no longer look quite so boxy and sluggish. What we are left with is a body design that remains very much a Volvo S60 yet looks much more sporty and sleek. We end up with the Volvo S60 that many of us wish would have been available all along.

2014 Volvo S60 in Denver and Littleton Crowd Favorite
The Volvo S60 may not have been a crowd favorite for its looks for many years, yet the model had remained very popular, given the amount of choices that offer similar performance and a sexier body, it is easy to see why the 2014 Volvo S60 in Littleton remained so popular, and that boils down to safety. The Volvo S60 from your Volvo Dealership in Denver has long been known as one of the safest vehicles on the road, and while much of that safety is due to the airbags and seat belts the body is often overlooked as one of the most important safety features that the Volvo S60 has.

2014 Volvo S60 in Denver and Littleton Important Safety Feature
The reason that the body is such an important safety feature is that it is what provides your airbags and seat belts to do there work properly. After all, no amount of airbags can help you if the vehicle has collapsed around you while you sit in the passenger compartment. The use of advanced materials in the construction of the Volvo S60 is not a new development, yet it has advanced quite a bit in recent years, and the Volvo S60 is now safer than ever.

2014 Volvo S60 in Denver and Littleton Space Age Material
Has the 2014 Volvo S60 in Littleton incorporated some new space age material previously unknown to man into their new models. Well, no not really, but in a way it has. While none of the materials in the Volvo S60 are new per say, they have been engineered to be safer than ever. New processes have been able to give us ultra high strength and boron steels which the Volvo S60 incorporates into the body to provide the kind of collision performance that you would expect from a race car roll cage. On top of this roll cage like safety around the passengers the Volvo S60 incorporates softer materials in the areas away from the passengers so that the collision force can still be absorbed by the vehicle, yet leave the passenger compartment unscathed, leaving the airbags and seat belts to absorb the rest of the force that the body of the Volvo S60 can not.

Volvo S60 in Denver Performance | Rickenbaugh Volvo

In dealing with luxury sedans everyday I have grown somewhat numb to their charms. The problem is the same as anything else. When you see the same thing over and over again it just becomes routine. In the daily grind of luxury sedans the Volvo S60 in Denver is one that can still grab my attention. Other vehicles in this segment vary only by slight degrees from one another while the S60 stays firmly outside of the box. The Scandinavians certainly have a style all of their own, and just like the famous do it yourself furniture, the S60 is odd yet attractive and reasonably priced. Making it’s debut at your Volvo Dealership in Denver in 2001 the S60 was an instant success with those who have long valued Volvo for it’s second to none safety standards. Where Volvo had never been a great success was in the market sector that put form higher on their priority list. The Volvo S60 in Denver was one of the first models that could actually compete with the rest of the luxury sedan set, while still not becoming just another clone of the tried and true platform.

Volvo S60 in Denver Early Model Performance
In terms of performance Volvo has a system that just makes sense to me. Other automakers jump from a slow and uninspired powertrain to a performance designed motor and then the next trim level up drops back to the smaller engine. I don’t get it, and it would appear that Volvo doesn’t get it either. The S60 was initially offered in 3 trims, each one offering a more powerful engine and sportier suspension then the last. The entry level engine that came in the base model was a 2.4 liter five cylinder that got you 168 horsepower. While this was far from a slow powertrain you have to at least approach 200 horses to get most performance minded buyers attention. The mid level trim did just that. The 2.4T offered the same 2.4 liter five cylinder as the base, but the addition of a turbocharger was able to get our horses up to 197. Now we are starting to move. Of course the real power was in the top trim level where it belongs. The T5 trim offered us a very tidy 247 horses to round out the stable.

Volvo S60 in Denver Current Model Performance
After lots of tweaking and changing around of trim levels and engines the Volvo S60 in Denver, tragically, got lost on it’s way to the marketplace for the 2010 model year. Fortunately for us though, the model was just undergoing a redesign that has brought her back faster and sexier than ever. For 2013 we get a whole new engine line up available from Rickenbaugh Volvo. We start with the T5 trim level which comes equipped with an inline five cylinder pumping out 250 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque thanks to a turbo charger. Yes that is the entry level engine. As you can see the engine development team at Volvo has not been sleeping on the job. The next trim level is the T6,and the clever can figure out what the name implies. The T5 is turbo 5 cylinder therefore the T6 is a turbo 6 cylinder, an inline 6 cylinder that gives us a massive 300 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. This is serious power for the entry level.

Volvo S60 in Denver R Trim Level
What I have not mentioned yet is that Volvo has a couple more trim levels available at Rickenbaugh Volvo. The first year offered three trim levels, but by 2004 the base was dropped and a new trim level was added. This is the performance inspired, gear head trim level. In 2004 Volvo released the S60 R. The R was the super sporty version of the S60. In it’s first iteration it came equipped with a  2.5 liter that was able to bump the horses up to 300. Remember that the entry level motor of the same period could only achieve 168 hp while the T5 was offering 247, so the 300 bump was quite substantial for the model year. The R model was, unfortunately, dropped from the line up at your Volvo Dealership in Denver for the 2008 model year. Happily, it came back to us for the second generation in 2012. In the second generation everything was bigger and better. The T6 trim offers the same horsepower that the old R version was able to achieve so what can we expect from this new R version? The new R trim offers us the same engine as the T6 but it is sport tuned to get us 325 horsepower. While it may not look like a sleek sports machine you can’t deny that the Volvo S60 in Denver has a true Scandinavian performance pedigree.
