April 2022 New Cars on the Block

2022 continues with a few revisions and some cool new options! 

2023 BMW 7 Series

2023 BMW 7 Series

BMW’s full-size flagship sedan returns with new bodywork and a host of new technologies that wouldn’t be out of place in their Rolls-Royce big brothers.  Notably absent from the next-gen 7, internally dubbed the G70, is the V12.  What we will get, however, is a new V8 meeting stricter emissions standards while making more power. 

2023 BMW i7 

2023 BMW i7

With an approach different from competitor Mercedes and their slippery, tech-laden EQS, the all-electric version of the 7 will be based on the same underpinnings as the gasoline model.  A more traditional sedan shape should entice those looking to blend in with their surroundings a bit more than some EVs. 

2023 Ferrari 296 GTS 

2023 Ferrari 296 GTS

Following its 296GTB coupe stablemate, the GTS keeps the V6 hybrid technology and adds a retractable hardtop able to be folded in 14 seconds at up to 28 mph.  Pricing will start in the mid-$300k range. 

2023 Hyundai Palisade 

2023 Hyundai Palisade

The first revision of Hyundai’s smash hit full-size Palisade includes revised front and rear fascias to match Hyundai’s exterior language, along with a refreshed interior with added driver seat massage function, steering wheel redesign, added USB-C ports throughout, and ventilated second-row/heated third-row seats. 

2023 Kia Telluride 

2023 Kia Telluride

As is often the case with cars on the same chassis, the Telluride will also get a few updates like its Palisade cousin.  New are the sport-trimmed X Line model, as well as a more hardcore X-Pro model with smaller wheels, beefier tires, 5500 pounds towing capacity, and more ground clearance.  All models get a new 12.3 inch screen and three new color options. 

2023 Jeep Wagoneer L / Grand Wagoneer L 

2023 Jeep Wagoneer L / Grand Wagoneer L

Jeep has sat on the sideline and watched as the biggest models from other domestic automakers offered an even longer version of their full-size body-on-frame people/cargo movers.  Until now!  With 7” additional wheelbase and 12” overall, the Wagoneer duo is ready to compete with the Suburban, Yukon XL, Escalade ESV, Expedition Max, and Navigator L.  Along with the new Hurricane Inline-6, a few more MPGs will be realized vs. the current shorter Wagoneers. 

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS

With the EQS and EQE sedans already out and confirmed for production, the EQS SUV follows suit as the luxury flagship seven-seater SUV from the world’s older automaker.  More aerodynamic but also more compact than the existing GLS gas model, the EQS580 4MATIC will have up to 536 horsepower and 300+ miles of range. 

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB 

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB

As the entry-level seven-seat Mercedes crossover option, the EQB promises a more affordable option in the budding EV SUV segment.  Because of its low center of gravity, we predict it will also be fun to pilot around town.  Active aerodynamics and 288 horsepower are standard. 

In Other News… 

2023 Toyota Supra manual transmission

The Toyota Supra will be getting a manual transmission for the 2023 model year.  After several years with the terrific ZF 8-speed automatic, Toyota decided the time was right.  As a joint venture with the BMW Z4, we hope to find the same setup in more BMWs down the road as well. 

2023 Mazda’s CX-30

The rotary engine will return, kind of.  Mazda’s CX-30 compact crossover is the lucky recipient of Mazda’s historically significant, fan-favorite Wankel rotary engine as a range extender.  While many hoped for a rear-drive coupe catered toward enthusiasts, the PHEV CX-30 will benefit from hybrid capabilities without range anxiety. 

2023 GMC Canyon

As the Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon is scheduled to be replaced in the near future, GMC has already teased an even more off-road-ready variant.  The growing family of AT4X models usually includes hardware like locking differentials, spool-valve dampers, wider/taller suspension, and all-terrain tires.  We are excited to see more than they have teased us with, but the rock rails are a fantastic start! 

Honda Insight

The Honda Insight will get the axe after the 2022 model year.  In exchange, Honda is promising hybrid versions of their bread and butter Accord, Civic, and CR-V. 

Chevrolet Corvette

Chevrolet has teased and confirmed some kind of hybrid, AWD Corvette.  Details are yet to come and we are excited to learn more!
