What a month! Automotive brands have been busy announcing and releasing vehicles to capture wandering summer eyes. This month’s New Cars on the Block features new SUVs, trucks, sedans, and even a hatchback (yes, those are still a thing). Let’s get the people what they want… the cars!
2022 Ford Maverick
Is Ford bringing mini trucks back? Possibly! Wait, were mini trucks ever here? Yes? Yes! The release of the 2022 Ford Maverick caused an uproar in the truck community. This all-new truck has a starting MSRP of $19,995, which is unheard of for a truck…until now! With an estimated 40 mpg in the city, the Ford Maverick is a top competitor for most fuel-efficient truck on the market, as well as most affordable. Top Gun 2: Maverick comes out in November. Coincidence? You be the judge.
2022 Lexus NX 350
Say hello to the new and improved Lexus NX – a serious upgrade for a serious car. This vehicle is Lexus’s first with a brand spanking new, cutting edge Lexus Interface multimedia system on a 14-inch touchscreen. Talk about a tech upgrade! Drivers in the 2022 Lexus NX 350 get to also enjoy the luxury crossover’s refined exterior. This includes a new spindle grille, the Lexus rear badging, and an elevated exterior body shape.
2022 Kia Telluride
Drum roll, please! Meet the 2022 Kia Telluride. This popular SUV incorporates slight additions and upgrades on the exterior and interior. Most notably, however, the 2022 Telluride features Kia’s new badging on the front and rear. The size of its navigation display has been increased to 10.25 inches. The award-winning SUV also comes with fully automatic temperature control and highway driving assist to give the driver total control on the vehicle.
2022 Toyota Tacoma
Off-roading just reached a new level! Toyota and truck fans alike are going crazy over the new 2022 Toyota Tacoma. Offered in two trim levels, TRD Pro and Trail Edition 4×4, the Toyota Tacoma is perfect for off-roading pros. This new truck comes with an increased suspension lift of 1.5 inches in the front and 0.5 inches in the rear. Drivers can also look forward to new wheels with styling accents to set them apart on the road. And wow—that electric green pops!
2022 Audi A3 & S3
Audi announced not one, but two new vehicles. The 2022 Audi A3 and 2022 Audi S3. Yes, those are incredibly similar names (we admit to occasionally having letter+number car naming fatigue around here at OneRequest). And yes, we will break down the differences. The all-new Audi A3 includes an upgraded interior and exterior design. The all-new Audi S3 is the same as the A3, but with an added sport element and a wider frame than previous models. Basically, the S3 would beat the A3 in a race.
2022 Honda Civic Hatchback
Honda unveiled the 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback, its most recent addition to the Civic lineup. The all-new Civic Hatchback has a sporty design with an available 6-speed manual transmission (a rarity these days). The exterior takes cues from Euro-inspired designs, while the interior provides drivers with ample storage space. Honda also announced that the 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback will be the first built in the U.S. at the Honda Indiana auto plant.
