Volvo's redesigned XC90 crossover coming in 2014 will be the first of several models based on a new front-wheel-drive architecture called SPA, for Scalable Platform Architecture.
SPA was engineered for a new family of four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines.
Volvo says horsepower will be similar to that of its larger five- and six-cylinder engines but fuel economy will be improved by up to 30 percent.
Here's a summary of Volvo's product plans.
C70: The hardtop convertible will be phased out this year.
V60: Volvo has not sold a station wagon in the United States for two years, but it will return to that segment in early 2014 with the redesigned V60, which debuted in Europe two years ago.
Pricing and specifications, including engines and transmission, for the U.S. model have not been disclosed.
U.S. buyers got a glimpse of the V60 in March at the New York auto show, where Volvo showed a high-end sporty trim level called the V60 R-Design.
S60: A redesigned version of the compact sedan is expected in 2016 or 2017.
XC60: The crossover will be redesigned in 2016.
XC70: The tall wagon may be replaced in 2015 or 2016 and likely be called the XC80.
S80: The large sedan will be redesigned in 2015. There may a coupe derivative called the C80.
XC90: The redesigned crossover debuts in late 2014 on the Scalable Platform Architecture.
The vehicle will get new safety technology, such as nighttime pedestrian and animal detection systems and lane-departure warnings.
Large flagship sedan: Volvo is considering a sedan larger than the S80, possibly a four-door fastback similar to the Volvo You four-door concept shown at the 2011 Frankfurt auto show.
