February 2022 New Cars On The Block

2022 continues to impress with new offerings and exciting announcements! 

2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale 

Alfa’s sub-Stelvio crossover is set to arrive for the model year 2023.  While specs have not yet been released, photos from Stellantis group show the exterior styling to be handsomely Alfa, only on a smaller scale.  We expect pricing to start in the $30k range. 

2023 Audi A8/S8 

Audi’s flagship sedan gets a little facelift for 2023.  Now featuring a standard S Line package, slightly bigger grille, and redesigned rear lighting. 

2023 BMW 8/M8  Coupe/Convertible/Gran Coupe 

BMW’s flagship cruiser slash pavement pounder 8er is getting a refresh for the model year 2023.  Now featuring a 12.3-inch center infotainment screen to match the identical gauge cluster, the 8-series will also get a standard illuminated grille and five new colors including the awesome San Remo Green.  The M8 instead will offer the ///M only Isle of Man Green, first seen on the current M3/M4 models.  Production for the 2023 model years will start in March 2022. 

Ford Bronco Everglades 

Whether or not you were comfortable reciting the differences between the six trim levels available for the Bronco in 2022, Ford is adding another: the Everglades.  To complete the spectrum of off-road readiness, the Everglades starts with a four-door Sasquatch and adds a snorkel, Warn winch, and 35” mud-terrain tires for those interested in visiting Shrek.  Pricing starts at $54,495 and we expect the added adventure gear on this model to be wildly popular.  We also hope that Ford can catch up with the demand for these Broncos! 

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe 

The 4xe line continues with the Grand Cherokee.  Like the Wrangler, the GC is a plug-in hybrid capable of 25 miles of pure electric range and 470 miles of combined range.  Prices start at $58,095 and are eligible for up to $7500 in tax credits. 

Lincoln Corsair PHEV 

As the second plug-in hybrid offering from Lincoln, the Corsair joins the Aviator to further expand the portfolio of vehicles for environmentally conscious people, or those who can sneak to work and back in under 28 miles.  Just like the Aviator PHEV, the Corsair PHEV is the top dog trim level and starts at $51,485. 

Mercedes-AMG EQE 

As Mercedes trickles its all-electric technology down from big to small, so does its AMG department with their hot rodding.  Those familiar with the more powerful, more aggressive, and more emotional development of a standard Benz product will immediately recognize the upgraded cosmetic components.  Underneath, AMG-specific battery packs with up to 677 horsepower. 

Porsche Macan T 

Intended to bridge the gap between the base Macan and the V6 S, the Macan “T”ouring will feature certain exterior elements in black and Agate Grey, and an interior with T-exclusive pinstriped seat inserts and a GT sports steering wheel.  With pricing from the low-$60k range, we expect this Macan to be a performer. 

Gordon Murray T.33 

Oh, how we love this automobile!  Speaking to the inner-most sanctum of our automobile-loving souls, the T.33 is the more “attainable” younger brother of the T.50.  A naturally aspirated V12 revving to over 11,000 rpm is attached to a six-speed manual transmission.  Prices start at a cool $1.85m. 

Toyota Sequoia 

Five trim levels will be offered: SR5, Limited, Platinum, TRD Pro, & Capstone.  Two-wheel drive will be standard on all models with 4WD optional (4WD standard on TRD Pro models).  Colors will include some classics like Wind Chill Pearl, Midnight Black, and Smoked Mesquite…but recent fan favorites such as Army Green, Lunar Rock, and the 2022-23 TRD Pro-specific color of Solar Octane will also be offered. 

In Other News… 

The 2023 Chevrolet Blazer is getting a 2” bigger touchscreen, standard wireless charging, updated front and rear cosmetics with LED lighting, and a fancy blue interior option on the RS model.  Pricing should stay close to the current $35k base price and close to $50k for optioned out higher trim levels. 

It hurts to hear that Local Motors has shut its doors for the last time.  Their original designs included a 3D-printed car, the Rally Fighter (above), and the fully autonomous Olli trolley.  Fare thee well, Local Motors, and thank you for your impressive contributions to vehicular transportation! 

The Volkswagen ID.Buzz Microbus prototype.  That’s the whole story.
