Dedication to New Models and Technology Show Volvo is Here to Stay

In a recent report from Ward's Auto, Volvo North America's CEO John Maloney stated that Volvo is upping their range, bringing in some new models, and intend to heavily market the vehicles to attract more buyers to the brand. Given what you've read on the Paul's Volvo blog, that's been pretty clear, so why the reiteration?

Well, it's to address some baseless conjectures. At the start of the year…

Volvo Shoots Video on the Go with Custom XC60

To capture the amazingness of all new Volvo vehicles, and showcase them to the world, you need cameras, and a crack team of video experts. Volvo has both, and to make sure they get the best footage possible, they have an amazing custom rig that we have to share with drivers in Hawthorne, NJ.

It's a six-wheeled off-roader that has a long bed, tripods, harnesses, and camera gear attached along the back, and a…
