6 Things You Didn't Know About Volvo

1. Even though Volvo is Latin for "I roll" the company originates from Sweden.

2. The founders, Assar Gabrielsson & Gustav Larson, wanted a car that could brave the Swedish terrain and weather. Translates to, "Utah? Oh yea, Volvos can handle it!"

3. Volvo has also made aircraft and marine engines. Make sure to check your airplane to see if it's a Volvo (we all have one, right?).

Loving Volvo a little more now? Wait for this . . .

4. Volvo will fly you to Sweden for free! Whaaaaaa? Oh yea, this has got to get you saddled up and ready to seriously think about a Volvo/Swedish vacation. Just order an overseas model Volvo and they'll send you there to pick it up, drive it around, and enjoy the open road in Sweden. You into it?

5. A man from New York drove his '66 Volvo for 3 million miles and continues to drive it still! And you thought you were the road trip king. His story is worth the read.

6. The wagon is back, ladies and gentlemen. Ken Garff Volvo has just informed its followers of the release of the V60 Sportswagon; it's a spin on a classic we all know and love. Who doesn't remember seeing families pile out of these beauties in Wasatch campgrounds growing up? Volvo says this U.S.A. newbie is "All work, all play, no compromise." What more could you ask for?
