The S60 won’t the only model produced in South Carolina, since the next-generation Volvo XC90 SUV will also be built at the same plant when it arrives in 2021.

The 2019 Volvo S60 T5 starts at $36,795, but if that’s too much of a commitment you can do the Care by Volvo subscription service which starts at $775 a month.
