Volvo is going to/are using the 2.5 TDI (turbo charged direct
injection diesel) engine from VW/Audi.
The gas engines are Volvos own 2.5 litre 5 banger.
The 850 has always been FWD and have a transversely mounted engine.
I believe they are working on an AWD car. I have heard that the
transmission would be from porsche.
