Best New Cars for 2020-2021 | Latest and Upcoming Cars, SUVs & TrucksFeb 27, 2020
CARLOS LAGO: Welcome to the Los Angeles Auto Show. Here's a collection of the most
2021model year vehicles you'll see for sale on dealer lots next year. In this video, the Edmunds team will walk you through what you need to know about these
trucksand SUVs, at least the most important and significant ones. As always, if there's a vehicle you're interested in that isn't in this video, please visit edmunds.com for more information. There you will find your perfect car and how much you should pay for it. MARK TAKAHASHI: Audi has been on a roll for the past two years, redesigning everything in its portfolio.
This year, they will launch and round out their lineup with higher-performance S and RS variants. But they're bucking the SUV trend by reintroducing some wagons. In particular, the A6 Allroad is back. It offers the versatility of an SUV but more driver involvement, like a smaller car. The big news though is this mad dog, the RS6 Avant. With 600 horsepower and an equivalent six-figure price tag, it's a whole different take on the family hauler. Audi also brought a sportback version of the e-tron crossover. It brings with it all the good things we love about the e-tron, but it lacks a bit of practicality.
This swooping rear roofline cuts rear headroom by nearly a full inch. There's also a pretty decent bump for carrying capacity. But this shape is more aerodynamic and ends up earning you about 10 miles of electric range. My favorite Audi, the R8, is also back. For
2020, it gets a slight styling update. But it also gets a small power boost over the base model. It's the
bestway to live out your Tony Stark fantasies. CARLOS LAGO: Cool doors are still great. The BMW i8: there's nothing like it on the road. It looks like a supercar and has the practicality of a supercar, but it doesn't really have the performance of a supercar.
It's a hybrid, after all, but as an 18-mile range EV. For 2020, it comes in this exclusive, limited-edition color scheme. And whether you get it in a two plus two configuration or a roadster configuration, like this one, you can be sure there's nothing like it on the road today. Let's take a second and appreciate how good this M8 looks. It's quite pretty, actually. And it's hard to deny the appeal of a vehicle like this, the 8 Series and 8 Series Gran Coupe. And that's what the M8 is based on. This is a very attractive car, as it should be, for a vehicle that starts at around $150.
If you go up to the competition package, you get around 617 horsepower. The base car has 600 horsepower. very strong Of course, the performance potential of a large luxury sedan like this is somewhat iffy. If you want something a little snappier and a little more sports car oriented, behind me is the M2 CS. Strange name aside, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe has effectively become BMW's entry-level sedan. And it's pretty cool, too, even if you think all BMWs should be rear-wheel drive. This one is available with four-wheel drive and power, ranging from 228 to 301 horsepower, if you get the M235i variant, like this one here.
It could give the Mercedes Benz A-Class, that luxury sedan we love so much, a run for its money. Strange to say, but we live in a world where finding a 600 horsepower luxury SUV is pretty easy now. And it's going to get even easier next year with the addition of the X5M and X6M. Standard guys, these things make 600. Horsepower in their competition trim, they bring that figure up to 617 horsepower. If that's not ridiculous enough, the front wheels are 21 inches in diameter, the rear are 22s. What a world we live in, folks. This is the BMW X3 X Drive 30e.
And that means it's the hybrid version of the X3. It will go on sale next year, and then we will know more about its specifications and figures for the United States. However, now we know that it's based on the same engine, motor and battery pack that you get in the 3 Series which was called the 330e, it's a little less confusing. And it should come with its solid amount of EV-only range. WILL KAUFMAN: We've been looking at prototypes for a while, but now, Bollinger is taking pre-orders and delivery is scheduled to begin sometime in
2021. This electric double, B2 truck, and B1 SUV have a ton of off-road features, removable doors, and some storage compartments for tricks.
Think big boxy Jeep Wrangler but all electric and $125,000 to start. These are definitely niche vehicles, especially with Rivian bringing a more affordable electric truck and SUV to market soon. But they sure look tough. CARLOS LAGO: When you think of large three-row Cadillac SUVs, your mind probably goes to the Escalade, but you might want to consider the XT6. This new model from Cadillac starts in the mid-$50,000 range and also includes many standard safety, comfort and technology features. He is also quite handsome. Quite roomy inside, especially in the third row, which can seat real full-size adults. Unfortunately, the third row takes up a crucial part of the cargo space, so you have to decide if you're going to carry the family or the cargo.
Cadillac has two new luxury sedans, the CT4 and CT5. If you can guess which one is big and which one is small, congratulations, at least you have a basic level of deductive reasoning. These are attractive vehicles, one, because they are attractive, two, because Cadillac's problem has never been driving dynamics. So we hope they somehow drive. Three, Cadillac is addressing the biggest issues we've had with previous models, which is the quality of the interior, namely the center entertainment touchscreens, which were a bit of a nightmare. You also get access to Cadillac's Super Cruise, which on some highways offers a legitimate hands-free driving experience.
Taken together, these make for a very compelling choice among other luxury sedans. TRAVIS LANGNESS: The 2021 Chevy Colorado gets a slight refresh with a new look on the front end, new lettering on the tailgate. But it has the same platform, the same powertrains and the same interiors as before. And unfortunately for the Colorado and its GMC sister, the Canyon, they still have to battle off-road kings like the Jeep Gladiator and Toyota Tacoma, and the extremely well-rounded Honda Ridgeline. The Chevy Silverado is one of the most capable and one of the most popular vehicles for sale in America today.
For 2020, it gets some new tech features, like adaptive cruise control and an in-trailer camera system that can support up to 15 cameras. And under the hood, if you want, you can now get a three-liter diesel. But even though it's improved significantly, the Silverado still trails the Ram and Ford in our overall ranking. An old name with a new face, the Chevy Trailblazer is a small SUV that fits between the Tracx and the larger Equinox. Hitting US shores next year or so two small three-cylinder powertrains and choice of two trim levels, this kind of sporty-looking RS and the more outdoor-oriented Active.
Prices will start just under $20,000 and the Trailblazer should come with an impressive list of standard features. This is one of the biggest releases of the year. The Chevy Corvette has gone mid-engine. It gets a 6.2-liter V8, making 495 horsepower and a dual-clutch gearbox. It goes up against rivals nearly double the price and is quickly becoming one of our favorite sports
. While looks may be up for debate, performance is definitely settled, and this is one Corvette for the history books. WILL KAUFMAN: The Chrysler Pacifica is our number two ranked minivan thanks to its amazingly loud V6 and excellent cargo flexibility because of those fold-down seats.
. While looks may be up for debate, performance is definitely settled, and this is one Corvette for the history books. WILL KAUFMAN: The Chrysler Pacifica is our number two ranked minivan thanks to its amazingly loud V6 and excellent cargo flexibility because of those fold-down seats.
Of course, those seats are slightly less comfortable than some competitors. We also appreciate the plug-in hybrid versions with more than 30 kilometers of fully electric range. For this year, the Voyager nameplate is making a comeback, but it's essentially just a base model Pacifica. The feature load is really the only difference. Unfortunately, there is no crop option. ELANA SCHERR: For 2020, Dodge is celebrating the Challenger's 50th anniversary with a special anniversary edition. I got anniversary badges, new wheels, unique interior options, and a whole new color. Fitting for a Golden Jubilee, Dodge calls it the Goldrush. We think they should have called it Bananaversary.
For 2020, Dodge offers a widebody package in its Hellcat and Scat package. Adds 3 and 1/2 inches, making room for wider tires. Don't worry, you can still spin them. If you want a slimmer, less aggressive Charger, there are plenty of trim options with the V6 cylinder and 57 hemi, so you can still enjoy that comfortable interior, excellent styling, and great infotainment system that keeps Charger in the top five. in our rankings. JONATHAN ELFALAN: By far Ford's biggest announcement is the new all-electric Mustang Mach E. However, this is not a muscle car. It's actually a Ford Escape-sized SUV. It will offer the option of rear or all-wheel drive in two battery sizes.
It will be available beginning in the fall of 2020 with prices starting around $40,000. If you want to know more about this vehicle, you can check out the excellent video by Alistair Weaver, Edmunds' editor-in-chief. It's been a great year for Mustang from the new Mach E to the new performance package for the EcoBoost four-cylinder, which makes it incredibly dynamic. Oh, and this subtle 760-horsepower Shelby DT500, too, is new and joins the flat-cranked Shelby GT 350 V8. The Mustang is currently Edmunds' number one ranked muscle car. I can't imagine why. The Escape has been facelifted for 2020, packed with sportier exterior styling, a roomier interior, and four new powertrains.
Two turbocharged engines, plus a hybrid and plug-in hybrid variant. The sportier 250-horsepower Escape gets an estimated 26 mpg combined. while the hybrid is rated at 41 miles per gallon with up to 30 miles of electric range if you opt for the plug-in version. The stakes are high on this new Escape, as Ford will soon be out of the sedan-building business, leaving only this and the extra-small Ecosport in its portfolio of entry-level vehicles. We were excited when we heard that the new 2020 Explorer was returning to a base rear-wheel-drive platform. For SUVs, that usually equates to better towing and driving dynamics, which the new Explorer delivers in spades.
What we did not expect was a comparatively high price. Prices range from the mid-30s to the upper-50s, which is a little hard to stomach when you see what the competition is offering for thousands of dollars less. The Expedition became our favorite non-luxury full-size SUV shortly after it was redesigned for 2018. It won us over with its exceptional passenger comfort, user-friendly technology, and ability to tow more than 9,000 pounds. For 2020, the updates are fairly light, but the biggest news is Ford's 360 Copilot, which is a suite of advanced driver aids that's now standard on all Expedition models. The Ranger was reintroduced to the US market last year to a mixed reception for 2020.
Ford offers a new FX2 package on all rear-wheel drive Rangers in any trim level. It includes an electronic locking differential, off-road tires, an off-road tuned suspension, an off-road display inside the gauge cluster, and body decals. Now at $595, that's a steal. Sure, you don't get the advanced terrain management and trail control you'd get in an FX4 package and all-wheel drive ranger like you see here, but at least you get the off-road looks and some of the capability for less than half the package cost. WILL KAUFMAN: The 2020 Genesis G90 looks quite different on the outside, but under the skin, a lot remains the same.
That's not really a bad thing. The Genesis G90 90 is a large luxury sedan with available executive seats in the rear. And a really great stereo. The new exterior design is attractive. And I mean, just take a look at these great wheels. Inside, you'll find upgraded trim like beautiful open-pore wood and an infotainment system that now supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a welcome addition. And the Genesis G90 is significantly less expensive than its main competitors. TRAVIS LANGNESS: Redesigned just a year ago, the GMC Sierra 1500 gets some significant tech updates for 2020. It now has available adaptive cruise control, as well as a tow-and-camera system that supports up to 15 cameras.
Under the hood, you can now also get athree liter diesel powertrain. And to top it off, win our tailgate war with the V6 way electric folding multi pro tailgate. This CR2500 is completely redesigned for 2020 and uses a little sister, the 1500, as its model. You also get the multi-hatchback along with updated technology, an updated interior, and improved towing and hauling capabilities. Unfortunately for the 2500, it has really strong rivals like the Ram and Ford, so it's an uphill battle. CARLOS LAGO: There are no significant changes for the Honda Accord in 2020, but that doesn't stop us from recommending this extremely well-executed sedan.
It's stylish, fun to drive, and packs a punch with utility. Many of its competitors have been updated or redesigned since this car came out, but the Accord still shines the brightest in its class. The Honda Civic is Edmunds' highest ranked small sedan. And yes, we know this is a two-door SI, we'll talk about that in a second. The Civic line gets small editions across the entire model range. For example, the hatchback has extra sound deadening and the SI like this has a shorter final drive, which makes acceleration feel a little livelier. With prices ranging from $20,000 to $30,000, there's a Civic for most buyers, and they're all easy to recommend.
The big addition to this year's Honda CRV that we should also mention is our highest-rated small SUV, it's a hybrid model. Now that we don't know much about the technical details yet, then it uses the drivetrain from the Honda Accord Hybrid. It makes 212 horsepower, though fuel economy numbers have yet to be released. But if we were to guess, it would be around 40 MPH. The rest of the CRV lineup has some nice additions, too. Specifically, the base engine is no longer available, so all you get is the 1.5-litre turbo four. And that's the one we'd recommend anyway.
The Honda Passport came on the market last year and quickly caught our attention. In fact, it's our top-ranked two-row midsize SUV, and for good reason. Essentially, it's a Honda Pilot without the third row and with a slightly shorter length, so you get all the utility of that vehicle without, of course, the seats in one very attractive package. There are no new changes for 2020, and that's okay because it's still a good car. The Honda Ridgeline carries over into next year with virtually no changes and remains our number one ranked midsize pickup. Wait, wait, come back, look, look, we got it.
You are very angry because it is not a real truck. Get a Gladiator or a Tacoma. And bring it, bring it, it's going to be fine. Breathe. WILL KAUFMAN: The 2020 Hyundai Kona is our highest-rated extra-small SUV for its agile handling and acceleration, comfortable interior and user-friendly technology. The addition of adaptive cruise control for this year only makes it better. The only downside: If maximum cargo capacity is your top priority, it might be worth looking to a competitor. The Hyundai Palisade is a luxury midsize three-row SUV with plenty of room in all three rows and plenty of comfort and technology features.
It would have upended the segment and stolen the top spot in our rankings were it not for its corporate twin, the Kia Telluride. That's not a knock against the excellent Palisade. Which you prefer between the two really comes down to what kind of personality you want from your vehicle, with the Palisade offering more of the luxury-on-the-road vibe between the two. The 2020 Hyundai Sonata has been completely redesigned and has a sleek new look. I mean, just take a look at these daytime running lights. The other thing it has is a bunch of new features. The new Sonata truly is a showcase for the next generation of Hyundai technology.
You will gain the ability to use your cell phone as a key. You can get the Sonata in and out of parking spaces remotely. And inside, you get this big new infotainment screen and a digital display instead of the traditional gauge cluster. If you want the
latestfeatures from your sedan, the Sonata should be on your list. TRAVIS LANGNESS: The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most capable off-road vehicles on sale today. And in other news, the sky is blue and the water is wet. This current generation is more comfortable, high-tech, and user-friendly than ever. And while some concessions have been made along the way for off-road capability, this is the most livable Wrangler Jeep has ever made.
For 2020, you can get one with diesel. For someone who doesn't want to spend money on a Wrangler but wants the iconic Jeep look, the Renegade is a good choice. It has a spacious interior and a tall interface. And it has more off-road ability than most lifted hatchbacks in this segment. But if you want something that's fast or quiet, we'll steer you in another direction. If you've always wanted a Jeep Wrangler but also needed a pickup truck, well, the Gladiator will solve that problem. It's based on the same platform as the Wrangler, so it has a lot of the off-road capability, but it's got that truck bed in the back, so it has a ton of added utility.
It's only our number two ranked midsize pickup truck because it's behind the super practical Honda Ridgeline. The Jeep Cherokee is in one of the most competitive segments in the market: compact crossovers. It goes up against complete vehicles like the Mazda CX5 and the Honda CRV. And while it's not our favorite in the segment, we like it for its impressive off-road capability and high-tech interior with a comfortable highway ride. MARK TAKAHASHI: The Kia Seltos is new to the US, but has been on sale for about a year in other parts of the world. It sits right between the Kia Soul and the larger Kia Sportage in terms of price and size, starting around $22,000.
Like many subcompact crossovers, it benefits from the comfort of an SUV, but in a smaller package that's easier to drive and less expensive. The Seltos is distinguished by a slightly taller standing height and available four-wheel drive, which isn't available on the Sul or Niro, which means it can do some pretty light off-road driving. But you'll have to wait until spring to get one. And you wouldn't think you'd have to wait to get your hands on a Telluride because it's been on sale for a while, but you'd be wrong. Kia apparently can't make them fast enough to keep up with the demand.
That's really not a surprise because the Telluride is our favorite SUV. And not just a three-row midsize SUV, it's our favorite SUV, period. With plenty of power, tons of features, and an incredibly refined interior, if you need something that big, put it on your shortlist. The Stinger is largely unchanged for 2020, but it does add a new mid-grade GTS trim. At a time when sleek sedans seem to be dwarfed by mass-market action SUVs, the Stinger is a refreshing detour with hatchback comfort, great performance and, like any Kia, a very generous warranty. Who says fun is dead? ELANA SCHERR: The Defender is back in the United States.
Ta-da, this is it! We covered the Defender during its international launch, but it's great to see it here at home. The 2020 Defender promises strong off-road performance and plenty of customization options, including two different engine options. Also, it looks great. I think it looks good. Do you think it looks good? I think it looks good. The original Range Rover Evo was a bit of a weirdo with a love it or hate it design. For the redesigned 2020 Evo, Land Rover has gone a bit more mainstream. It's larger for more legroom and has new interior technology like the dual-screen infotainment system.
There is also a hybrid powertrain option. I think it looks like a smaller sporty Discovery. JONATHAN ELFALAN: Lexus stripped the wraps and top off the 2021 LC 500 convertible. We thought the coupe looked great, but it feels like the LC was meant for the topless design from the start, which is another way of saying it looks fantastic. . There are 471 horsepower generated from a five-liter V8, which also produces wonderful sounds. This convertible will make enjoying them even better. Lexus says the LC's top will open and close in about 15 seconds and it can go up to 31 miles per hour. So you're not stuck playing stop light roulette.
This topless LC will go on sale next summer. Lexus' most popular SUV and my new favorite because it has a surfboard on the roof is the RX. For 2020, it gets a slight update with new front and rear styling and revised suspension for sharper handling. The 2020 RX is also the first in the Lexus lineup to offer Android Auto smartphone integration along with Apple CarPlay. And that can be projected onto a new optional 12.3-inch touchscreen. Thankfully this replaces the clunky old system with the remote touch joystick that we weren't big fans of. ELANA SCHERR: Corsair is certainly a much better name than MKC, which was Lincoln's previous small SUV.
The Corsair is based on the Ford Escape, but Lincoln has worked hard to distinguish itself from Ford with Lincoln-specific styling choices, new technology, and different engine options, including a plug-in hybrid. Then, of course, there are those fantastic Lincoln interiors. They are not a pair of sunglasses and have little in common with the Aviators of the early 2000s. The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is based on a Ford Explorer but with its own here and interior. If you've seen Lincoln interiors recently, you know it's a good thing. Its quiet cabin and turbocharged V6 make it a powerful family cruiser. And there's a plug-in hybrid option for even more power and better fuel economy.
What world do we live in? If you have space in your garage and want to fill it with yacht-like luxury, the Lincoln Navigator is our pick for the
bestboat. I mean, our pick for the highest-rated luxury large SUV. Since its introduction, the Lincoln Navigator has consistently topped our scores for its gorgeous interior and impressive performance. For 2020, safety features become standard, but what hasn't changed is the navigator's impressive towing ability. 8600 pound capacity, you can tell a boat with this boat. MARK TAKAHASHI: If it seems like there are a lot of odd midsizes among full-size SUVs, you're not imagining things.
This is the
latestfrom Mazda, the CX30. It sits between the slightly smaller CX3 and the slightly larger CX5, with a starting price of around $23,000. It also pushes the evolution of Mazda styling a step further. While other companies go for deep, defined creases, Mazda opts for these elegant softened arches that set it apart from anything else on the road. Like Mazda, we also expect the CX30 to drive better than its rivals from Honda and Toyota. WILL KAUFMAN: Mini is jumping into the EV game with the Cooper SE two-door hardtop. This is not a Tesla killer. This is more of an alternative to the more affordable city cars like the basic Nissan LEAF or the Volkswagen e-Golf.
Prices should start under $30,000 and the EPA range is likely to be around 120 miles. It's more elegant. Adding that Mini personality to the battery electric formula could make this a compelling option for consumers looking for an electric car. MARK TAKAHASHI: The GLE was an instant success for Mercedes Benz, and it immediately rose to best in class. It has everything you want in a Mercedes SUV: a refined interior, tons of comfort, and plenty of technology. But this time, they threw something crazy at us. It's AMG's GLE 63S with 603 horsepower. That's crazy for the I don't know, rich parents with career aspirations, maybe?
And if you need more space, they also brought out the GLS and G version with similar performance. What they didn't release, however, is the top-of-the-line GLS Maybach edition. We don't have the full specs yet, but we can guarantee that it will be excellent in every way. CARLOS LAGO: The Nissan Rogue doesn't get any significant changes for 2020, but it's still a very attractive vehicle for buyers looking for an affordable compact SUV with plenty of interior space. And that's really what you get with this SUV. That and comfortable seats. Now, the driving experience pales in comparison to our favorite SUV in the segment, the Honda CRV.
But the path offers the basics. The slightly smaller Rogue sport gets a few small changes for 2020, notably updated front and rear bumpers with different looks and Nissan's suite of safety features are now standard on the base model. If we're being honest, the Nissan Titan has been feeling a bit dated lately, but that's because Ford, Chevy, and Ram have all come out with new generations of their respective
trucks. However, the Titan has been updated for 2020, thankfully. Its powertrain has a new 9-speed automatic transmission and its 5.6-liter V8it also has a small power increase. Now 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque.
There's additional standard safety equipment and an available nine-inch center touchscreen. With a starting price in the low to mid-range of $30,000, that makes the Titan a pretty compelling value. With the 2020 times introduction of a new generation of the Nissan Sentra. And it actually looks pretty good, too. It is slightly wider and slightly lower in height than the outgoing generation. The interior also gets a special mention. It's quite attractive. Also, standard safety features, like collision mitigation and whatnot. The base engine is a two-liter four-cylinder with about 150 horsepower. We look forward to our full viewing and will have one in our hands early next year.
Porsche's first electric vehicle looks to be a truly impressive entry. The Taycan promises the performance of a true sports car, but also the driving experience of an electric vehicle. It's a really fascinating combination of the two. It's available in a couple of different motor and battery configurations, from the Turbo S, which has blistering acceleration, top speed, and price, to this more down-to-earth 4S, which starts at around $100,000, has over 500 horsepower and it could be a true competitor to the Tesla Model S. While the most recent generation of the Porsche Cayenne was introduced last year, this year we have the addition of the Cayenne coupe.
If you haven't been paying attention to luxury SUVs for a while, the modern trend with coupes trades some rear headroom and cargo space for a more raked roofline that mimics what you'd find. in a real two-door coupe. The Cayenne coupe costs a bit more than the equivalent Cayenne and has the same trim levels, so you can get a Cayenne coupe Turbo and a Turbo SE hybrid. With all the hype around the new Porsche Taycan EV, you may forget that there's actually a new generation of Porsche 911. And you can tell from the outside, too, because it doesn't look all that different.
It's most apparent on the inside when you see the new gauge cluster and all the touch-sensitive controls on the center console. When I drove this car earlier this year, I really enjoyed it because, sure, it's a 911. With a starting price of around $100,000, this car really gives you more than you could ever need from a sports car. TRAVIS LANGNESS: The Ram 1500 is our number one ranked full-size pickup truck. It has a really comfortable interior, a tall frontend, and for 2020, a new diesel powertrain is added to the lineup to handle over 12,000 pounds. And enter the tailgate wars with a new 60-40 split open beer tailgate.
JONATHAN ELFALAN: The Ascent is the largest vehicle Subaru makes, offering three rows of seats and room for seven or eight passengers while it's not on the top of our list of three-row midsize SUVs, we like it for its traction full standard, its powerful turbocharged engine and crisp, responsive touchscreen infotainment system. For 2020, the Ascent adds a standard rear seat reminder alert and power-folding sideview mirrors. The Subaru Forrester was redesigned last year and offers a great combination of many things. From a comfortable cabin and ride to robust safety features and technology. There's even a new lane centering feature, adding to its standard list of driving assistants.
All you need is a little more power and we'd be huge fans. The word legacy has different meanings. But Subaru is looking to leave a positive impression with its new midsize sedan. For 2020, the Legacy has been redesigned and remains the only one in its class to offer standard all-wheel drive. An optional 260-horsepower 2.4-liter engine should help entice some fans, as does Subaru's full suite of advanced driver aids that come standard. The Outback is Subaru's midsize SUV and one of our perennial favourites, mistaken for a tall wagon. But don't let appearances fool you. This wagon is likely to outperform many so-called off-road SUVs.
Do it with standard all-wheel drive and surprisingly generous ground clearance. For 2020, the Outback has been completely redesigned and is offered with two engines. One of which is a 260-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder. There's also a new 11.6-inch tablet-style interface for the infotainment system, which looks amazing. MARK TAKAHASHI: While Tesla wasn't on the show floor, company CEO Elon Musk unveiled the weird-looking cybertruck. Lofty goals include a 14,000-plus-pound two-top rating, a 3,500-plus-pound payload, and a 0-60 mph time of less than 2.9 seconds on the most powerful version. While Tesla has announced pricing and is taking pre-orders, delivery is still two years away at the earliest.
The Cyber Truck may make you forget about the Model Y entirely, but it should be available sometime during 2020. It's an SUV-like version of the Model 3, promising similar range, performance, a bit more space capability of freight and a little higher price. We have one on request. We've had a Model 3 for a few years now, but answering the question of what's new for this year is difficult because Tesla doesn't make updates like every other automaker. It's more like your phone, where you wake up one morning and it has new features. This experience is unlike any other car out there and, combined with the Model 3's many strengths, makes it easily one of the best-looking EV sedans you can buy.
What is left to say about the Model S and Model X? Well, we really like the S. At the time of this recording, it has a simple ordering process, great range, and ridiculous, or rather ridiculous acceleration. And the Model X... well, the doors look neat, but they severely limit the utility part of an SUV. But hey, is it at least fast? Hey guys, guess what. There's a new Toyota Mirai and it's not ugly, is it? This sleek sedan will hit our markets in late 2020 and it's a nice departure from, shall we say, the awkward styling of its predecessor.
It will also be rear-wheel drive, and Toyota claims it will have 30% more range. That means you can go up to 400 miles on a single tank. I'm not entirely sold on the future of hydrogen, especially when you consider that electrification is much more accessible. For example, Toyota's best-selling vehicle gets a new hybrid model in it, the RAV4 prime. This plug-in hybrid gets an 83-horsepower boost over the standard hybrid, which should get you to 60 miles per hour a full two seconds faster. Toyota also claims it will return 39 miles of electric-only range. When it goes on sale in the summer, it will only be offered in sporty SE and SXE trims, with all-wheel drive.
We recommend the hybrid RAV4 over the standard RAV4. And hope this is even better. WILL KAUFMAN: The Volkswagen Atlas ranks fifth and our ranking of three-row midsize SUVs. It was knocked down a couple of places this year by the introduction of the Honda Palisade and Kia Telluride. Still, the Atlas is a super roomy and practical SUV for families. It's just a little short on power and personality. For 2020, Volkswagen is trying to improve the personality with the introduction of the Atlas Cross Sport. This is a two-row version of the Atlas with more aggressive styling and a sportier personality.
