Aston Martin DBX
Aston Martin has unveiled its first SUV, and it’s set to arrive in America later this year. The 2021 Aston Martin DBX blends the company’s performance and luxury heritage with the capabilities demanded from a crossover with a starting price of $189,900.
The company reached out to the AMG division of Mercedes-Benz to source the snarling 542-horsepower twin-turbo V8 housed under the hood of the DBX. It’s good for a 4.5-second sprint from zero to 62 mph, on the way to a top speed of 181 mph. The DBX also employs a version of the Mercedes COMAND system with a 10.25-inch rotary dial controller for infotainment duty.
Adjustable air suspension and hill descent control give the DBX a bit of off-road cred, but it’s really designed for the street.
Inside the DBX, you’ll find the appointments and quality expected from a high-dollar supercar. There’s a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel display and tri-zone automatic climate control. Of course, the base price is only a start. Adding sumptuous high-grade leathers and other interior appointments can add substantially to the vehicle’s price.
The 2021 Aston Martin DBX is manufactured in Wales, UK.
2022 Fisker Ocean
California-based electric vehicle startup Fisker used the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show to debut its new SUV offering. The 2020 Fisker Ocean EV is a two-row, five-seat crossover with an electric range estimated by the company to be 250 to 300 miles on a single charge.
They expect 300-horsepower performance from the all-wheel-drive model of the Ocean, with a zero to 60 mph time under 3 seconds from a limited-edition high-performance model.
The crossover’s unique “California Mode” will lower all nine of the vehicle’s windows and sunroof panels at the press of a single button. Unlike most SUVs, the Ocean’s rear-hatch window can be lowered to complete the open-air experience or accommodate long cargo.
Offered on the Ocean will be an off-road-focused Force-E package, with increased torque, a lifted suspension, auxiliary lighting, tow hooks, and all-terrain tires. A power plug box will allow the Ocean to rescue other SUVs with depleted batteries.
The company has priced the Ocean from $37,499, with leases starting at $379 per month, with $2,999 due at signing. You can reserve a Fisker Ocean by making a $250 deposit at Fiskerinc.com or the Fisker Flexee app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
While many are talking about electric vehicle startup Rivian’s impressive R1T pickup, it’s easy to overlook that it also has an SUV on the way. The Rivian R1S is a two- or three-row SUV with impressive power, range, and cargo-carrying capabilities.
According to Rivian, the R1S will have power options as high as 750 horsepower, with independently operating electric motors at each wheel. That’s enough power to give the R1S a 3-second launch from zero to 60 mph. Range is estimated to top 400 miles when equipped with an extended-range battery pack. The performance numbers have not yet been independently verified.
The SUV’s off-road capabilities are expected to be formidable, with steep approach and departure angles, 14.5 inches of ground clearance, and the ability to ford water that’s 42.7 inches deep. In addition to its rear cargo area, the R1S features an 11 cubic-foot front trunk, or frunk, and as much as 7,700 pounds of towing capability.
The Rivian R1S will be built in Normal, Illinois, with a projected production start date that has been delayed into 2021. Pricing is expected to start at $72,500.
The Byton M-Byte is a compact battery-electric SUV with seating for five and an interior dominated by a 48-inch curved display that sweeps across the dash. There’s an additional iPad-like screen in the center of the steering wheel that manages many vehicle functions.
It’s the result of an international effort, with the Chinese company having the car’s engineering done in California’s Silicon Valley, design in Germany, and production planned in China.
Rear-wheel-drive models are estimated by the company to produce 272 horsepower and travel from zero to 60 mph in 7.5 seconds. Opt for all-wheel drive, and the 408-horsepower M-Byte will get you from zero to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.
Its expected range is as high as 286 miles, based on the WLTP driving cycle. Testing using American EPA protocols will likely result in a lower range number. The company plans to include several semi-automated driving functions, though the capabilities of those systems have not yet been detailed.
Byton has said that the electric crossover will arrive in the U.S. late in 2021 with a base price of $45,000.
2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The all-new Jeep Grand Wagoneer won’t be the only new “Grand” offering from Jeep in the next year or so. The current Jeep Grand Cherokee is, well, ancient. While Jeep’s done an admirable job keeping the Grand Cherokee up to date, with models such as the Trackhawk, it’s time for a complete redesign.
In presentations to FCA investors, the company has shown what appears to be a new Grand Cherokee going into production in the third quarter of 2021. Of course, that timeline may have slipped due to the coronavirus pandemic.
No details have been released, but it’s probably safe to say the new Grand Cherokee will be a two-row SUV with off-road capabilities that rival anything else in the class.
Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer
One of the worst kept secrets in the auto industry is there is a luxurious new range-topping Jeep model on the way, and it will carry the historic Wagoneer name. Or the Grand Wagoneer name. Or maybe both, with the Wagoneer a less expensive version of the new three-row model.
The large SUV is expected to ride on the same platform that carries the Ram 1500 pickup. The top model will be aimed squarely at the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator, with off-road capabilities that rival the Land Rover Range Rover. Models priced over $100,000 would not be at all surprising.
The original Wagoneer was produced from 1962 until 1991. It carried on its same basic form for 29 years, with refreshes and new features added through its nearly three decades of service.
2022 Infiniti QX55
Some might say that Infiniti can take the credit (or blame, depending on how you feel) for bringing SUVs with coupe-like rooflines to the market. The original Infiniti FX, which went on sale in 2003, featured a long hood and a pulled-back cabin. It was unlike anything on the market.
For 2022, Infiniti will debut the spiritual successor to the FX. The 2022 Infiniti QX55 will feature a sweeping roofline and sloping rear hatch. Most of its mechanicals, including its variable-compression turbocharged four-cylinder engine, are expected to be shared with the more traditional Infiniti QX50.
Crossover coupes are all the rage right now in the luxury market, with models from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and even Porsche, available.
Infiniti will debut the model on November 11. It’s the first of several new Infiniti models expected over the next few years.
Volkswagen is once again teasing us Americans. They introduce a new vehicle in Europe, then bring it across the pond when they’re darn good and ready. That’s going to be the case with the redesigned Volkswagen Tiguan, which goes on sale shortly in Europe. It’s still more than a year away from its U.S. debut.
The new Tiguan is updated with the VW family’s new exterior design themes, including thin LED headlights. Its powertrains are expected to stay the same – an unexciting 2.0-liter turbo-four with either front- or all-wheel drive.
Its cabin is another story. The redesigned 2022 Tiguan should get the company’s latest infotainment interface, and may get a 12.3-inch customizable digital instrument panel and an available 10.3-inch infotainment touch screen.
The current 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan earns a mid-pack slot in our ranking of compact SUVs. You should expect the new model to show up in the fall of 2021 as a 2022 model.
2020 Land Rover Defender
We’ve all seen the 2020 Land Rover Defender, following its introduction at 2019’s Los Angeles International Auto Show. Now we’re just waiting for it to arrive in dealerships at more than a slow, painful pace. The coronavirus pandemic has delayed production and delivery to American dealers.
The first models to arrive in quantity will be the 2020 Defender 110, with four doors and an option for three rows of seating. Later in 2020, we’re scheduled to see the arrival of the two-door, two-row Land Rover Defender 90. Rumors abound of a smaller, cheaper Land Rover Defender 80 that’s a couple of years away.
With the introduction of the 2021 Ford Bronco, the Defender is set to face a more crowded field than just the Jeep Wrangler and Toyota 4Runner. Land Rover Defender prices range from about $50,000 to $80,000 – before you start adding accessories.
Cadillac debuted the first act in its upcoming electric car blitz with the introduction of the battery-electric Lyriq crossover. Still, in its concept form, the Lyric is at least a couple of years away from arrival in the U.S. market.
The closest the brand has come to an electric car in the past was the short-lived Cadillac ELR hybrid.
Cadillac projects that the car will have more than 300 miles of range on a single charge. It relies on GM’s modular Ultium battery architecture, which allows for different numbers of battery cells and drivetrain options. For the Lyriq, Cadillac’s planning high-performance rear- and all-wheel-drive options.
You can expect the Lyriq to be loaded with technology, including the latest version of Cadillac’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assistance system, an augmented reality head-up display, and a 33-inch screen spanning the dash. A 19-speaker AKG audio system will come standard, as will an advanced noise cancellation system.
Pricing and a firm market arrival date have not been announced. Cadillac’s current estimate is late 2022.
2021 Toyota Venza
The Venza nameplate returns to the Toyota lineup for 2021. This time, it’s attached to a sleek hybrid all-wheel-drive crossover. The 2021 Toyota Venza starts at $32,470 and climbs well over $40,000 if you check all the option boxes.
Toyota equips the Venza with a 2.5-liter gasoline engine and three electric motors. Two of the motors are linked to the front wheels, while the third provides electronic all-wheel drive by powering the rear wheels. Altogether, the car’s hybrid powertrain produces 219 total horsepower. Though final EPA estimates aren’t yet available, Toyota expects the Venza’s mileage to be 40 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.
Like most Toyota models, the Venza comes standard with an array of advanced safety and driver assistance systems. They include automatic emergency braking, road sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, and lane tracing assist to keep you centered between lane markers.
The Venza should arrive at Toyota dealerships by this fall.
2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat
In their continuing quest to stuff a Hellcat motor into everything they build, Dodge has announced that the refreshed 2021 Dodge Durango will be available in SRT Hellcat trim. It will carry a supercharged 710-horsepower V8 under its hood.
The Hellcat Durango will only be available for a single model year.
According to Dodge, and certified by the National Hot Rod Association, the Durango SRT Hellcat runs a quarter-mile in a brisk 11.5 seconds. It covers the first zero to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. Oh, and it can carry the whole family along for the ride in its three rows of seating. Properly equipped, the Hellcat-powered SUV can tow as much as 8,700 pounds.
Adding the Durango Hellcat to the lineup isn’t the only change Dodge made to their three-row SUV for 2021. The lineup’s been refreshed inside and out with a new dash layout, an available 10.1-inch touch screen, and the brand’s latest infotainment system, UConnect 5.
The SRT Durango Hellcat is expected to arrive in dealerships early next year. You can order one starting this fall.
Arriving early in 2021, Buick’s redesigned two-row midsize SUV sports a bolder look, a new top trim, and loads of standard safety and driver assistance technology. The 2021 Buick Envision will come standard with automatic emergency braking, a high-definition rear vision camera, lane keep assistance, and more.
Lower and wider than before, the 2020 Envision’s stance is more athletic and less staid than the outgoing model’s. It will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
At the top of the lineup will be the Envision Avenir, with upgraded interior materials and features. A 10-inch touch-screen infotainment system and a head-up display will be offered.
2021 Nissan Rogue
The compact Rogue is Nissan’s top seller in America. For 2021, the Rogue has been fully redesigned and equipped with the company’s latest active safety and driver assistance technology. All Rogue models will come with Nissan Safety Shield 360, which includes automatic emergency braking and more.
Inside the 2021 Nissan Rogue, you’ll find more room for all five passengers. The design and interior materials have been raised a notch, with more soft-touch materials and less cheap plastic. A low-profile electronic shifter has replaced the large shift lever of the outgoing model. Nissan offers a 12.3-inch customizable instrument panel and a 10.8-inch color head-up display. Both are uncommon in the class.
The interior also features Nissan’s all-day comfortable Zero Gravity seats. Cloth comes standard, and two grades of leather are available. They continue to offer the Divide-and-Hide cargo management system, which allows you to configure the 2021 Rogue’s larger load floor for different cargo sizes and shapes.
Nissan expects the new Rogue will arrive in dealers this fall. Pricing has not been announced.
2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA
Mercedes-Benz has completely revamped its smallest crossover for 2021. They’ve taken it from a vehicle that barely nudged the threshold between car and SUV and turned it into a feature-packed luxury subcompact crossover, with looks to match. It’s more than 3 inches taller than its predecessor.
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA’s range begins with the GLA 250, featuring a 221-horsepower four-cylinder turbo and either front-wheel drive or 4Matic all-wheel drive. Arriving a bit later will be the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLA 35. It will carry a 302-horsepower turbo-four that’s good for a 5-second zero-to-60-mph sprint. All-wheel drive comes standard on the AMG model.
All GLA models will come standard with the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system. A pair of 7-inch screens come standard, while a 10.25-inch customizable instrument panel and 10.25-inch infotainment screen are available.
The 2021 Mercedes GLA starts at $36,230.
In the shadow of the 2021 Ford Bronco’s debut was the introduction of the smaller 2021 Ford Bronco Sport. Nicknamed as the “Baby Bronco” in the run-up to its long-awaited debut, the Bronco Sport is a smaller, more road-focused crossover than its pricier siblings.
Ford offers the Bronco Sport with a choice of two turbocharged four-cylinder engines. The smaller three-cylinder 1.5-liter EcoBoost makes 181 horsepower, while the available 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo produces 245 horsepower. Both are matched with eight-speed automatic transmissions and come standard with four-wheel drive.
The Bronco Sport is available with several technologies to help when the road ends, and the trail begins. A G.O.A.T. (Goes Over Any type of Terrain) vehicle dynamics selector includes modes for Normal, Eco, Sport, Slippery, Sand, and (on some models), Mud/Ruts, and Rock Crawl. Top trims include Trail Control, which acts like an off-road cruise control with the ability to send power to each wheel as needed.
Prices for the Bronco Sport start at $26,660. It’s expected to arrive in Ford dealerships by the end of 2020. You can reserve a spot in line with a $100 deposit at Ford.com.
Set to arrive in 2021, the Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4Matic is a midsize all-wheel-drive SUV with motors on each axle that can produce an ample 402 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque. Mercedes announced a starting price of $67,900 at its 2019 Los Angeles debut.
Mercedes announced that the EQC will be able to leap from zero to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds. We don’t know how long it can stay at that speed, though, as they haven’t released any range estimates for the U.S.-spec model.
Mercedes initially expected the EQC to make it to U.S. dealers earlier. It pushed its American market debut back as it focuses on delivering the SUV to Europe, where consumer demand is strong, and regulatory requirements reward sellers of battery-electric vehicles.
Alfa Romeo Tonale
There’s a good chance the luxury subcompact SUV segment will get an injection of Italian style soon, with the arrival of the Alfa Romeo Tonale. First shown in concept form at the 2019 Geneva Auto Show, the Tonale may bring the brand’s first hybrid powertrain to America.
Originally predicted to ride on a Jeep platform, Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s recent merger with the PSA Group may see the subcompact crossover move to a different architecture. The production Tonale’s debut and market launch schedule have likely fallen victim to world events, and no timeline for its U.S. arrival is known.
2021 Kia Sorento
The next generation of Kia’s midsize SUV is already on sale in Europe. U.S. buyers will have to wait a little longer for the 2021 Kia Sorento to arrive in dealerships. Now in its fourth generation, the redesigned Sorento rides on a versatile new platform that can accommodate future technologies.
Though the final specifications of the U.S.-market Sorento may differ from the Euro-spec model, the new crossover has more passenger and cargo room than the previous model. While its overall length is less than an inch longer, its wheelbase has grown by more than an inch.
Inside the European Sorento, you’ll find an available 12.3-inch digital dashboard and a 10.25-inch touch-screen infotainment system. Two phones can be paired with the infotainment system simultaneously. Upholstery choices include fabric, leather, and quilted Nappa Leather. The new Sorento will seat up to seven.
It’s unclear what powertrain choices will be available for the American Sorento. In Europe, Kia offers hybrid and plug-in hybrid options, as well as a diesel option. It’s almost certain we won’t see the diesel here. Front-wheel drive continues to be the standard drivetrain, with all-wheel drive an option.
During the crossover’s March introduction, Kia indicated the 2021 Sorento would arrive in the U.S. by the end of 2020. That target date may have slipped due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392
At the same time as Ford was debuting their new Bronco, crosstown rival Jeep had something of their own to show. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept has a 6.4-liter V8 squeezed under its hood scoop in a thinly disguised picture of the widely expected new Wrangler model.
It would be the first factory V8 installed in the Jeep off-roader since the 125-horsepower CJ in 1981. The concept’s engine makes 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. According to Jeep, it can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in less than five seconds.
“Jeep Wrangler enthusiasts have been asking us for a Wrangler V-8 and our new Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept proves that we have the ability to make that happen,” said Jim Morrison, Head of the Jeep Brand for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
Jeep has not confirmed that they’re actually building a production model of the concept. No timing for a decision or pricing predictions have been released.
The third member of GM’s full-size SUV family is the 2021 Cadillac Escalade. Like the Tahoe, Suburban, and Yukon, it has also been fully redesigned for 2021. It is the first in the segment to offer Super Cruise. This semi-autonomous driving assistance system helps to manage steering, braking, and acceleration.
Cadillac has packed the new Escalade with cutting-edge technology, including a high-definition 38-inch diagonal curved OLED screen. It contains a control and information touch screen, the instrument panel, and the infotainment display. A 36-speaker AGK audio system is available.
The Escalade’s Augmented Reality-enabled navigation system overlays directions on live street views to cue you to turns. Audio cues come from the direction of the turn, and the volume increases as you get close to where you need to maneuver.
Changes to the Escalades platform provide dramatically more room for third-row passengers, including more than 10 inches of additional third-row legroom.
Cadillac expects the new Escalade and long-wheelbase Escalade ESV to arrive in dealerships in the third quarter of 2020.
2021 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL
The GMC Yukon and Yukon XL large SUVs are fully redesigned for 2021. Riding on the same new chassis as the new Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, the GMC trucks see similar interior space improvements, along with a host of new cabin and safety technologies.
For the new model year, GMC has added a rugged new AT4 trim level to the lineup. In addition to its bold look, the new Yukon AT4 features an air suspension with increased travel for off-road conditions, all-terrain tires, skid plating to protect underbody components, and interior enhancements.
At the top of the lineup is the Yukon Denali, with a luxurious interior featuring high-grade leather upholstery, real wood trim, and four interior color schemes. It includes a 15-inch head-up display, Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension, and rear pedestrian alert. Available on the Denali and other trims is a power-operated center console that can slide 10 inches forward and back, providing a secure storage bin underneath.
Depending on the powertrain you choose, the 2020 GMC Yukon can tow up to 8,400 pounds when properly equipped. The new Yukon and long-wheelbase Yukon XL should be arriving in dealerships soon.
2021 Genesis GV80
So far, Hyundai’s fledgling luxury brand Genesis has been a sedan-only brand, with three models from which to choose. That changes this fall with the arrival of the all-new Genesis GV80, an opulent SUV with two- and three-row seating options that can accommodate as many as seven people.
The GV80 translates the exterior motif from the redesigned 2020 Genesis G90 into an SUV. It gets the sedan’s signature headlights and massive grille fitted to an athletically swept crossover. Inside the GV80, you’ll find a minimalist dash, with many vehicle controls managed through its 14.5-inch split-screen display.
Power options for the new luxury SUV include a 2.5-liter four-cylinder turbo and a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, with all-wheel drive available.
Pricing for the GV80 starts at $48,900.
2021 Ford Bronco
For the first time since 1996, Ford will be building a new Bronco for America’s highways and off-road trails. The 2021 Ford Bronco will be available in two- and four-door styles, with removable roofs and doors. All models will come standard with four-wheel drive.
Production of the Bronco is expected to start in early 2021, with the first deliveries to dealers scheduled in the spring. Prices start at $28,500 for the base model and climb as high as $63,500 for the now-sold-out First Edition four-door trim.
Most models of the Bronco will be available with a Sasquatch Package. It includes 35-inch tires on beadlock-capable wheels, front and rear electronic locking differentials, and higher ground clearance. Two turbocharged engines will be available, as well as an automatic transmission and a manual transmission with a crawler gear.
You can reserve your place in line by making a $100 refundable deposit at Ford.com.
2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer
Not to be confused with the midsize 2020 Chevrolet Blazer, the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer is a subcompact SUV with a bold look and a starting price below $20,000. Available in several two-tone color combinations, the new Trailblazer joins a segment bursting with new models.
The Trailblazer seats five in its flexible interior that features a fold-forward front passenger seat so that you can carry long cargo. It comes standard with a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system, which supports a 4G LTE data connection, an onboard Wi-Fi hot spot, wireless Android Auto, and wireless Apple CarPlay.
Two engine options are available, including a three-cylinder 1.2-liter turbo that makes 137 horsepower and a 1.3-liter turbo that produces 155-horsepower. Unlike some vehicles in the segment, it’s available in both front- and all-wheel drive.
All Trailblazer models come standard with automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, automatic high-beam headlights, and a following distance indicator that lets you know when you’re following the vehicle ahead of you too closely to brake safely in an emergency.
2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge
Based on the luxury subcompact 2020 Volvo XC40 SUV, the Volvo XC40 Recharge will be the company’s first all-electric vehicle. The crossover will feature a motor on each axle, providing all-wheel drive and impressive performance. Volvo estimates a zero to 60 mph time of 4.7 seconds.
According to Volvo, the battery-electric XC40 Recharge will produce an estimated 402 horsepower and have a range that exceeds 200 miles on a single charge.
Google connectivity will be built into the XC40 Recharge’s infotainment system, providing Google Maps navigation, the Google Assistant, and other car-based apps from the Google Play store. Volvo’s Pilot Assist system helps drivers manage acceleration, braking, and steering.
Volvo expects deliveries of the car to begin this year. It’s unknown if those plans have been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. You can reserve a “preorder” spot with a $1,000 refundable deposit.
2021 Kia Seltos
Kia has introduced a number of new and redesigned SUVs over the past few years, and it doesn’t look like they’ll be stopping anytime soon. The 2021 Kia Seltos, the newest SUV in the Korean automaker’s lineup, is actually already available right now.
With a starting price of $21,990, the subcompact Seltos offers a massive cargo hold for the class, impressive fuel economy, plenty of passenger space, and a high-quality interior. The Seltos is currently unranked among subcompact SUVs, but Kia hopes it will end up near the top.
2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime
Toyota has selected the “Prime” moniker to denote plug-in versions of its hybrid vehicles. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime is not only the most efficient model in the RAV4 lineup, it’s also the fastest. Its 302-horsepower hybrid powertrain can launch the SUV from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds.
In fact, it’s the second-quickest vehicle in the Toyota lineup, according to the company. It trails only the Toyota Supra on its time to 60 mph.
The RAV4 Prime holds enough power in its battery pack for an EPA-estimated 42 miles of electric-only driving on a single charge. Once the battery pack gets below a certain level, the gasoline engine seamlessly joins the fun, providing the range of a traditional hybrid vehicle. Every RAV4 Prime comes equipped with all-wheel drive. Power to the rear wheels is exclusively supplied by an electric motor, while the gasoline engine and two more electric motors power the front end.
Every Prius Prime includes the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 package of advanced driver assistance and safety technologies. Pricing ranges from $38,100 to $41,425. Many customers will qualify for a $7,500 Federal Electric Car Tax Credit, plus state, local, and power utility incentives.
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E
For 2021, Ford is making the risky move of applying the Mustang name to an SUV. It’s not just any SUV, though, it’s a high-performance battery-electric vehicle that can leap from zero to 60 mph in the mid-three-second range. That’s Porsche-level acceleration from a crossover.
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is just one prong of Ford’s electrification strategy, which also includes hybrid and full-electric models of the top-selling Ford F-150 pickup.
At the base of the Mach-E’s model range is the $43,895 Select model with rear-wheel drive and an estimated range of 230 miles on a single charge. Topping the lineup is the all-wheel-drive Ford Mustang Mach-E GT. It has an estimated MSRP of $60,500 and a range of 235 miles.
Between the two price extremes are rear- and all-wheel-drive models with ranges of up to 300 miles on a single charge.
Ford expects to deliver lower-trim models of the Mustang Mach-E by late in 2020. The Mustang Mach-E GT is expected to arrive by late summer 2021. Shoppers can reserve a Mach-E by making a $500 deposit at Ford.com.
2021 Audi Q1
Audi’s Q-family of SUVs have dominated our rankings as of late. The Q7 and Q5 sit in the No. 5 and No. 2 spots of their respective classes, and the Q3 takes the top spot in our ranking of luxury subcompact SUVs. The new-for-2021 Audi Q1 would fall into the same category as the Q3.
Audi has yet to release much information on their new SUV. However, if it shares the Q3’s engine, expect to have a 228-horsepower turbo-four under the hood. It’s likely that the new Q1 will have similar interior design cues as its larger siblings, as well.
See the Future With These SUVs
In their never-ending quest to give the buyers what they want, the world’s automakers continue to crank out all-new, redesigned, and upgraded SUVs and crossovers. They range from affordable subcompact crossovers to flagship three-row SUVs, with extreme off-road capable and electric models mixed in.
There are updates on vintage classics, like the 2021 Ford Bronco and all-new entries such as the 2021 Genesis GV80. There’s the newest Mustang in the pasture, the all-electric 2021 Mustang Mach-E, and the 2021 Dodge Durango, which now packs an available 710-horsepower Hellcat V8 under its hood. There’s even a crossover on the way from Ferrari.
If there’s a market niche, there’s an auto manufacturer with an SUV on the way to fill it.
Many vehicles shown on the following pages will be arriving in dealerships in late 2020 or 2021. Some are a couple of years off, and a few may never make it to the marketplace. Note that some production and on-sale dates may slide due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
