Ground clearance (also known as Ride height) measures the space from the lowest tip of the vehicle’s underbody and the spot of the tires’ contact with the level road. However, the manufacturer of the model might utilize a few tricks to the typical program to advertise enticing stats suggesting the real distance from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the track is briefer than mentioned in the printed leaflet.
It is no surprise as long as efficient people pursue an enlarged ground clearance to bypass dilemma when parking near the curbs or running through the uneven environment. The factual ride height of the model differs between 216 to 230 mm in relation to the year of creation and trim. Keep in mind that a well- filled vehicle will easily sacrifice about 1 inch of ground clearance.
Happily, the model ground clearance can be elaborated with the help of spacers for shock absorbers to make the vehicle remain higher off the ground. While making a taller model, you sacrifice a bit of the former stability and flexibility driving fast. On the other side model ground clearance can be lowered aiming to get upgraded handling and stability.
There a number of ways to increase ground clearance. When it comes to lifting or lowering your Volvo XC60 you can choose between bigger tires, a leveling kit, coil spring assisters, coilovers, airlift suspension, suspension lifts, etc.
