Toronto, Ontario – Canadian Volvo fans will be able to upgrade their T6 engines with new factory-authorized performance tuning software from Polestar Performance.

The upgrades, available for the 2011 and 2012 XC60, S60 and XC70 T6 models, will be available at Volvo retailers nationwide. The T6 packages follow the recent announcement of Polestar Performance packages available for select T5 Volvo models.

The T6 package has an MSRP of $1,495 installed and will go on sale December 5, 2011.

The T6 Polestar package adds 25 horsepower and 30 lb-ft of torque, upping the power output to 325 horsepower and 355 lb-ft. The software does not affect fuel economy, as it only increases the power output when needed, and will not void the existing Volvo warranty.

Polestar Performance packages are available for the 2011-2012 S60 T6; 2011-2012 XC60 T6; 2011-2012 XC60 T6 R-Design; 2011-2012 XC70 T6; 2008-2012 C30 T5; 2008-2012 C70 T5; and 2008-2011 S40 T5.
