Wow… and we thought 2020 was a wild ride. Who knew January 2021 would be so eventful. Have you seen the new cars announced and released this month? They are applaud-worthy. Let’s get into it. Here are the January New Cars on the Block.
2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee
You’ve seen a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but have you seen the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. For the first time, the legendary 4×4 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be available in a three-row configuration. Hence why they added an “L” to the name for long. This beast of an SUV has towing capacity of 7,200 pounds and water fording capability of up to two feet. Not only does this vehicle come with back-up video assistance, but also back seat video monitoring. This means that drivers will have the ability to tow a large trailer, drive in up to two feet of water and monitor their back seat all at the same time. Seems pretty legit to us! The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L will be available to drivers in Spring 2021.
2021 Porsche Taycan
Porsche recently announced the extension of its Taycan model range. Based on customer feedback, Porsche has decided to add the first rear-wheel, all-electric Taycan to the line-up. Customers are able to choose between two sizes of battery based on their driving habits and styles: Performance Battery or Performance Battery Plus. The batteries have a difference of 50 kW, but you can be reassured that both put out zero CO2 emissions. The newest Taycan model comes with the Plug & Charge functionality that allows drivers to charge on the go, while the charging station processes payment automatically. The 2021 Porsche Taycan possesses competitive charging times of 5-80% charged in 22.5 minutes and an additional 60+ miles after only five minutes of charging. With charging capabilities and customizable batteries, drivers don’t have to worry about running out of juice while out on a drive.
2021 Buick Envision
Say “Hello!” to the all-new 2021 Buick Envision. As the latest addition to Buick’s SUV-only line-up, the Envision features a lower and wider design and emphasizes safety features. Buick hopes the 2021 Envision will help the brand reach more consumers in the compact SUV market segment. Buick will offer three trim levels for the Envision: Preferred, Essence, and Avenir. The popular Sports Touring package is available with the Preferred and Essence trims. The interior of the 2021 Buick Envision is geared towards the driver’s comfort. The front instrument panel includes Buick’s first-ever 10.2-inch diagonal touchscreen and is tilted toward the driver for a clearer view. Combining the sleek design of a Buick with the driver-focused technology, sounds like a great ride to us! The 2021 Buick Envision is on sale now.
2021 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid
Starting in 2021, drivers can purchase the 2021 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid. This is the first time Bentley has made a Hybrid Bentayga option. Sustainability is top-of-mind for a lot of brands as we continue into the new year. According to Bentley’s Newsroom, this is the first of two PHEVs (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) to be launched in 2021. The Bentayga Hybrid offers drivers an acoustically isolated cabin to drive away from all the hustle and bustle. It also rocks a variety of color combinations, with our personal favorites being the wide range of blues from Black Sapphire to Kingfisher. Which paint color fits your aesthetic?
2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5
On January 12, Hyundai announced an upcoming world premiere event for the 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5. The virtual world premiere is set to happen in February 2021, so be on the lookout for more updates from us. Although we don’t know much yet, here’s what we got. The 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 will feature eco-friendly elements to up the design of the all-new CUV. The IONIQ 5 is a part of the Hyundai BEV (battery electric vehicle) line-up. This means the IONIQ 5 will be able to charge from 10% to 80% battery life in a speedy 18 minutes. Along with a few images, Hyundai released four short teaser videos on it’s YouTube channel. The images and videos leave most of the dimensions up to imagination, but according to Autoblog, the IONIQ 5 will be a complete hatchback. Guess we will just have to wait and see…
