2020 is coming to an end, but this is just the beginning for some vehicles. As brands and dealerships look to close the last month on a high note, new releases slim out towards the end of the year. This December did not disappoint, though. Multiple brands announced new releases and new updates to popular models. Check out December’s “New Cars on the Block” and let us know on social media what automotive news you’re looking forward to in 2021.
2022 Acura MDX
Acura announced the release of the 2022 Acura MDX early in December. The Acura MDX is touted to have the most advanced cockpit of any Acura from the brand’s 35-year history. More space means more people can enjoy the vehicle, so Acura improved the interior layout of three rows by adding a functional second row with a removable seat. As the fourth generation MDX, the 2022 model has a completely upgraded exterior design as well. This vehicle’s larger and wider body, with redesigned LED headlights, comes in a variety of exciting, new color options, such as Phantom Violet Pearl and Liquid Carbon Metallic. The 2022 Acura MDX will arrive at dealerships for purchase in early February 2021.
2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR
Jaguar’s new 2021 F-PACE SVR is faster than ever! The 2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR features a 550-hp, 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine that powers the vehicle to top speeds of 178 mph, with the capability to go 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds. The updated F-PACE SVR draws inspiration from motorsport designs to deliver a luxury, performance-focused SUV. This high-powered vehicle will come with luxe details and finishes, namely leather seats, interactive driver display and custom stitching. Drivers will get to choose from over 20 unique colors, such as Sanguinello Orange and British Racing Green. Pricing starts at $84,600 and the 2021 Jaguar F-PACE SVR will be available for purchase in 2021, with the ability to build your own now on the Jaguar website.
2021 Nissan Armada
Nissan was busy during December! The company announced two updated models during its Nissan NEXT video event. The first vehicle was the 2021 Nissan Armada. Nissan describes the design of the vehicle as a “rugged new exterior design and a new premium interior.” The 2021 Nissan Armada will be the first model to feature the new Nissan logo. The 2021 Nissan Armada has an updated grille, hood, front fenders, bumpers and LED headlights and taillights. The styling modifications align with Nissan’s brand update. The 2021 Nissan Armada will be available for purchase in January 2021.
2021 Nissan Kicks
The Nissan Kicks will also have an updated 2021 model. The Kicks is Nissan’s compact crossover that’s known for offering first-in-class features and safety components. Besides Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, the Nissan Kicks also comes with a larger, easy-to-read, 8-inch digital touch screen. Like before, the Safety Shield 360 comes standard with all Kicks models. Drivers will feel safe on the road with features such as automatic emergency braking and blind spot warnings. The 2021 Nissan Kicks will hit showrooms in February 2021.
