Ready To Move Up to S60?
T5 is a high pressure turbo, came with the 16T turbocharger and lower compression. This means that stock block can hold more power, it puts out more power, and comes with a bigger turbo. it also tends to be a bit harder to find and more expensive to buy, but of course that equates to better resale in these vehicles.
2.4t/2.5t are pretty much the same. Low pressure turbos, came with 13T turbocharger, high compression engines. This means more torque, but stock block cannot hold as much power, puts out less power than the HPT, and smaller turbo. Cheap and easy to find.
Don’t even think about buying a naturally aspirated S60, they’re useless.
Bonus! More About The Volvo S60
The Volvo S60 is a compact luxury sedan manufactured and marketed by Volvo since 2000 and is now in its third generation.
The first generation (2000–2009) was launched in autumn of 2000 in order to replace the S70 and was based on the P2 platform. It had a similar designed estate version called Volvo V70 and a sports version called S60 R. Styling cues were taken from the ECC concept car and the S80.
The second generation (2010–2018) was released in 2010 for the 2011 model year and has its own estate version, known as the Volvo V60. The third generation joined the Volvo line-up in 2018 for the 2019 model year. It is built on a shortened version of the Scalable Product Architecture platform, in America’s first Volvo factory in Ridgeville, South Carolina. The U.S. became the sole global source of the S60 sedan after production in China was phased out in early 2019.
