The xB Release Series 6.0, or simply xB RS 6.0, which is Scion's first limited-production vehicle for this year and comes with Absolutely Red pain finish, will reach dealerships by February, but prior to that it will be displayed at the NAIAS from January 11-25 in Detroit for the press and the public.
Highlights of the car include the following: a special front grill with bespoke black finish and Release Series wheel covers, a color-coded rear spoiler option, a touch screen Pioneer Audio Visual Navigation (AVN) overhead unit complete with flash memory, voice recognition, MSN Direct, Bluetooth interface, USB, SD card, and iPod connectivity.
The overhead AVN unit also functions as a satellite radio and HD Radio-ready and can play DVDs and iPod videos when parked. Car owners can customize the 32k colors of the 5.8-inch hi-res WVGA LCD touch-screen display.
Further features of the vehicle include illuminated door sills, highlighted interior trim and color-tuned seat fabric, rear cargo cover, and unique numbered badging rounds off this special car.
A limited number of 2,500 units will be built with an MSRP of $1,743 above the price of the xB. The base MSRP for the regular xB with a manual gearbox is $15,750, while one with an automatic gearbox will fetch an MSRP of $16,700 and an Absolutely Red spoiler with an MSRP of $320 (excluding installation) is also available.
