Things change quickly in the automotive industry. SUVs have never been popular in the past, but now they are among the top picks. We didn’t have autonomous driving features a few years ago and we are getting closer to full autonomy every second. Who knows what might happen tomorrow.
What we do know is that carmakers will keep launching cars. That is why we are taking you to 2021, to give you a sneak peek of the vehicles to come. Some of these are confirmed, the others are still in the rumor mill. Let’s see what awaits us.
2021 BMW M2 CSL
According to the rumors, the BMW M2 CSL is supposed to go on sale in 2021 and those who hope to see the M2 GTS should watch out for the CSL first. Powerful engines and fast M2 cars are coming from BMW that is for sure.
2021 Genesis Essentia
The Genesis Essentia was presented at the 2018 New York Auto Show and it is ready to be produced. It is based on an electric platform and it will be the top of the game for this luxury carmaker.
2021 Cadillac Escala
We have been waiting for the flagship Cadillac Escala for a while. Now finally, rumors are increasing regarding the new model. Supposedly, Cadillac will base it on the 2016 Escala concept and the new car will share its platform with the CT6.
2021 Infiniti Electric Vehicle
Infiniti is experimenting with electrifications, but their first electric car might go on sale in 2021. They revealed the Q Inspiration Concept this year in Detroit, which should serve as the basis for the new model.
2021 Lagonda Electric SUV
Aston Martin’s luxury sub-brand Lagonda will launch the new SUV in 2021, inspired by the Vision concept.
2021 Lamborghini Sedan
When Lambo unveiled the four-door Estoque concept, rumors could no longer be stopped. We have been expecting the sedan from this Italian carmaker ever since and it might actually come out three years from now.
2021 Nissan 370Z Nismo
Since 2009, we haven’t seen too many modifications on the Nissan 370Z. The new model will find its place at dealerships next year, and two years after that, a high-performance Nismo will be added to the lineup.
2021 Mercedes SL
Mercedes officially confirmed this model but the exact date is unknown. Speculations suggest that a V12 engine will not be featured and neither will the hardtop. Engines should range from an I6 that will generate approximately 435 hp to an electrified SL 73 with the output of around 800 hp.
2021 Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo
Porsche will launch the Taycan next year. The Cross Turismo will be the electric version of this car and it will most likely arrive in late 2021.
2021 Toyota 86
If reports are to be believed the new Toyota 86 is going to receive a new platform and with it, new engines as well. Expect the new entry-level sports car to be bigger as well. All we are waiting now is the confirmation.
2021 Audi Q1
Audi plans to launch a new vehicle that will be placed under the Q2. Its name is the Q1 (how creative Audi, well done) and it will arrive in late 2021.
2021 Jaguar J-Pace
In order to compete against the Porsche Cayenne, Jaguar will need a large crossover. It will be called J-Pace, but that could change before this model hits the market.
2021 BMW iNext
The iNext is thought out to be the best electric model this German carmaker has assembled. The car will arrive in 2021, but BMW will venture into the extensive PR campaign with the iNext Vision Vehicle, which is the concept.
2021 Jaguar XK
Based on the next-generation 2019 F-Type, Jaguar wants to produce the new sports car, called the XK. This model is certain, but it is the arrival time we are worried about. Even though our guess is 2021, the release date could easily be postponed.
2021 Land Rover Range Rover
The fifth-generation of Land Rover Range Rover arrives in 2021. The biggest improvement is the new Modular Longitudinal Architecture platform and with it, new engine options will be available as well.
2021 Mitsubishi Outlander
Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi joined forces and soon they will launch their first product. It is the Outlander based on the Nissan Rouge platform.
2021 Volvo XC90
Volvo’s XC90 will continue production and the new-generation model that arrives in 2021 will be assembled in South Carolina. It will have limited level 4 autonomous driving features, which means that the new Volvo will be on a higher level.
