    Default Baffled - there's no RED in the 2010 XC70!

    Hello y'all,
    I really wanted to take advantage of the special offer last month Safe+Sound and 72 months 0% APR on all XC70 - I told my salesperson last Saturday if you could find a Red with Tan interior, I will be down to make the deal - he called me back within 15 minutes and informed me that there is NO RED in the XC70 and there is no R-Design in the 2010 XC70 lineup? Why is that? So, my wife really want a Red XC, so now she is looking at the XC90 R-Design and I'm looking at the XC60 R-Design ... Unless, the 2011 XC70 line up comes with Red exterior or R-Design, then I will wait - If not, I think the 3.2 XC90 will be underpower based on what I have been reading on the XC70 forum, "3.2 vs T6" and I really don't want to spend the extra on the V8 let alone on the gas - I would like a T6 in the XC60 though... I just read XC70 News that the Safe+Sound has been extended through June. So this will allow us to test drive the XC60, XC70, XC90 - we currently have a 2003 XC70 that my sister is pushing me hard to sell it to her next month or June... So, if any of you know why they don't have a Red in the XC70 let alone a R-Design in 2010 line-up - because I am completely baffled!

    I thought I remembered hearing somewhere that you might have access to colors for other markets if you do an overseas delivery...

    Don't hold me to it...but I think I remember something about that...

    Cheers

    Here in Australia with such a small market, it is quite common to put in a "special order" for the car you want. It'll take 3-6 months before it arrives on the ship, but often it takes that much time anyway.

    Good luck finding your red XC. It's a great colour for the car.
    Cheers,

    If you check the overseas delivery site you will see that a red exterior/mocha interior is available.

    Default Color

    I was kind of surprised when I picked up my new T6 that they had it in Black Saphire. When I looked in the brochure I had at home it showed that the Standard Black was only available in the 3.2 and there was no mention of the Black Saphire at all. I love the color but may have opted for a silver or white to keep a cleaner appearance but it was equipped kind of like I wanted so I bought it. I really didnt want Nav and a couple other pricey options, all I really cared about was the T6 engine.
