    Volvo Announces Extended Availability of Polestar

    Performance Software Packages

     

    Upgrade Now Available for earlier T6 and 2.5T engines

     

     

    ROCKLEIGH, N.J. (Oct. 31, 2012) - Volvo Cars of North America (VCNA) announced today factory-authorized performance tuning software for several earlier Volvo models is now available at Volvo retailers across the country.

     

    The Polestar performance tuning software is now available for the following models:

     

    T6 Engines - 281 HP to 311 HP

    • XC60 MY 2010
