As is usually the case, the top spot within the XC60 range is reserved for a hybrid model. The T8 eAWD starts from just under $53,000 and offers as much as 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque.

The new net horsepower output will likely surpass the current one which rests at 308 hp. A larger electric unit and correspondingly increased battery capacity might be in the works too. If that turns out to be true, both the fuel economy and the all-electric range of the new BMW X5 plug-in hybrid will be increased.
The Japanese market 180SX and S13 Silvia were a huge hit in Japan and sparked a wave of attention from US consumers when the US version 240SX made its way across the pond.

The Dodge Grand Caravan has been one of the most popular minivans in the North American market for nearly 25 years. It has always been equipped with tough engines and durable transmissions. While the Grand Caravan has never been on the cutting edge of styling, it has always been well-appointed and roomy enough for seven passengers and plenty of cargo. As far as cars under $5000 go, the Dodge Grand Caravan offers everything you could ask for.
