August 2021 New Cars on the Block

It’s another exciting month to build momentum into the second half of the year!  This month’s New Cars on the Block features limited editions, oddballs, and the future of personal transportation.  Do you have any favorites? Let us know on social media.

2022 Land Rover Defender Trophy Edition

Building off the success of the Defender 90 two-door and 110 four-door variants, this special edition Trophy Edition is based on the six-cylinder P400 X-Dynamic SE model and adds a plethora of standard off-road goodies and cool decals.  220 examples will be built at a cost of $91,350 and will include an invitation to the US Trophy Competition at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.

2022 McLaren 765LT Spider

Another limited edition, this time from Britain!  The droptop version of McLaren’s 765LT will be similarly rare with 765 units to be built at a starting price of $388,000.  Expect all the thrills of a 750+ horsepower, track-ready automobile…and a top that folds in 11 seconds!

Morgan CX-T

Not wanting to miss out on the recent trend of Safari-inspired vehicles, Morgan has decided to enter the mix with its wood-framed Plus Four called the CX-T.  It will feature BMW 2.0L turbo power, a six-speed manual, an electronic limited-slip differential, and standard Maxxis all-terrain tires.  The price will be around $240,000 with production limited to eight units.

Nissan Frontier

Newly updated for the first time since…gulp…2005, the all-new Nissan Frontier refocuses its brand’s efforts in the mid-size truck category.  A lot has changed since the last time a Frontier was updated, so count on this vehicle having a plethora of updates in almost every category from technology, safety, capability, and personalization.

Airstream x Pottery Barn Trailer

Because we appreciate ALL vehicles and associated equipment, we thought you should be aware of this collaborative effort between Airstream and Pottery Barn.  Featuring the century-old timeless good looks of stainless steel on the exterior and now featuring an interior done up to the 9s by Pottery Barn, this fully furnished trailer asks you for $145,000 and a tow vehicle.

In Other News…

Lexus has updated the interface and technology in the older but still popular GX.  Now featuring a standard 10.3-inch touchscreen and available Nori Green Metallic paint from the LC Coupe, these updates should provide the technology that buyers have come to expect from a vehicle in the digital age.

Volvo will be updating most of its 60/90 series cars with 48V mild-hybrid technology for model year 2022.  Expect a few more MPGs, a bit more power, and smoother start/stops at red lights.

Bentley has released a new carbon fiber wheel for its Bentayga SUV.  Apart from being gorgeous, it saves 13 pounds per corner and took five years of development to bring to fruition.  It will be offered exclusively through Bentley’s Mulliner bespoke program.
