This year has been full of exciting premieres in the car world. With the end of the year around the corner, automakers are already preparing for 2023 and the future.
From electric compacts to hardcore V12-powered supercars, these are the best models to look forward to in 2023 and beyond.
Ford Mustang S650
This is unarguably one of the most exciting automotive debuts within the last few years. A while back, Ford unveiled the all-new generation of the iconic Mustang.
The new S650 generation of America's favorite pony car will arrive for the 2023 model year. Naturally, the GT variant is offered with a screaming Coyote V8 motor.
Porsche Macan EV
Despite Porsche's efforts to develop vehicles powered by combustion engines that use renewable fuel, the German automaker is also committing to electric cars. The upcoming fully-electric SUV is a prime example.
The Porsche Macan EV will hit the market sometime in 2023, with its internal combustion counterpart discontinued just a year later.
Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato
Lamborghini has recently unveiled the Huracan Sterrato. This crazy variant of the automaker's flagship V10 supercar will be unlike anything we'd ever seen before, a real all-terrain supercar!
The official debut of the Sterrato will take place at the end of November 2022. A production version of this concept hasn't been confirmed just yet, but it's rumored to happen soon.
The all-new BMW M2 is easily one of the most polarizing cars unveiled this year. The new design is questionable, to say the least.
The new entry-level M model is excellent when it comes to performance, though. The car, powered by a 453-horsepower turbocharged inline-six, can reach 60 miles per hour in under 3.9 seconds.
Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG
The latest generation of the iconic Mercedes-Benz AMG C63 is back for the 2023 model year. A V8 motor will not power the C63 AMG for the first time.
This time, the high-performance sedan is powered by a 2.0L flat-four motor. Don't be fooled by the low displacement, as this is the most powerful four-cylinder engine in the world.
Chevrolet Corvette C8 Z06
Some die-hard Corvette fans may argue that the latest C8 generation has lost some of its iconic features. However, the mid-engine sports car is easily the best bang for your buck, at least in terms of performance.
The high-performance Z06 variant, which will be even more hardcore than the base model, will hit the market for the 2023 model year.
The highly-anticipated Prancing Horse SUV has finally arrived! The production of the Ferrari Purosangue will commence sometime in 2023, with more details expected to follow shortly.
The Italian automaker hasn't released a lot of details about the Purosangue just yet. We know that the SUV will be built on the same platform as the Roma coupe and have a top speed of 193 miles per hour.
Acura has brought back the Integra nameplate for the 2023 model year, following an absence that lasted over 15 years. The new vehicle debuted as a replacement for the ILX.
Under the hood, the new Integra packs a 200-horsepower powerplant borrowed from the Honda Civic, offered with an automatic transmission as standard. Buyers can update to a stick shift with a limited-slip differential, too.
Aston Martin Vanquish
The British automaker is bringing back the Vanquish nameplate for 2023. This time, it's going to be a lot more radical than its spiritual predecessor.
The all-new Vanquish is going to be a mid-engine supercar that's going to compete with the likes of the Ferrari F8 Tributo and the McLaren 720s. The car is expected to resemble the Valhalla, although powered by a less powerful motor rated at 700 horses.
BMW 7 Series
The lavish 7-Series, developed to compete with the Mercedes-Benz S Class, is back for the 2023 model year. The all-new G70 generation is better than ever before.
Buyers can choose between petrol, diesel, and plug-in variants of the car. A fully electric version is available, too, as a separate model.
Nissan Fairlady Z
Nissan is planning to retire the 370z sports car soon and replace it with the all-new Fairlady Z. The seventh generation of the Z sports car will hit the market for the 2023 model year, though the first units have already been delivered to buyers across the globe.
The new Fairlady Z is powered by a V6 motor rated at 400 horsepower, available either with a 9-speed auto or a 6-speed stick shift transmission.
The latest fourth generation of the Mazda MX-5 has been around for a couple of years already. The affordable two-seater is going to receive another makeover for 2023, though.
The 2023 Mazda MX-5, internally referred to as the ND3, will be the second facelift of this generation. Visual updates, a bump in horsepower, and a lighter body are all listed among the improvements.
Alfa Romeo Tonale
The quirky design is just one of the reasons that make the upcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale an exciting vehicle. This crossover SUV is going to be the first plug-in hybrid in the history of the Italian automaker!
Under the hood, the Tonale packs a 1.3L flat-four as well as a battery pack, providing up to 272 horsepower in total. The model is scheduled to officially go on sale before the end of the year.
BMW hasn't revealed many details about its upcoming X8 SUV, though a compilation of unofficial renders and spyshots seem promising. All we know so far is that the all-new X8 will share the same platform as the lavish X7; a V8-powered variant is expected to hit the market too.
The German automaker is rumored to officially unveil the vehicle before the end of the year. With the production expected to start around the same time, it's safe to assume that the model will be available sometime in 2023.
Kia's beloved Niro, a sleek hybrid crossover SUV, is back in 2023. This time, the Korean automaker introduced the all-new second generation to replace its predecessor.
Buyers have a choice between a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid, and fully electric drivetrains. The base model makes 139 horsepower, while the most powerful EV version makes a little over 200 horsepower.
Gordon Murray Automotive T.50
The fact that the T.50 resembles the McLaren F1 is no coincidence. Gordon Murray, the man behind the legendary McLaren supercar, has created the T.50 as its modern sibling.
The Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 will be powered by a 4.0L V12 motor rated at 654 horsepower. The supercar is expected to enter production before the end of the year.
Toyota Corolla GR
Toyota is developing the Corolla GR following the enormous success of the Yaris GR. Gazoo Racing, the automaker's racing division, has created another exceptional hot hatch.
The car is powered by a 300-horsepower three-cylinder motor mated with a six-speed stick-shift transmission. The new model is expected to arrive in Toyota dealerships before the end of the year.
Hyundai Ioniq 7
Hyundai launched Ioniq as a subdivision for its electric cars back in early 2020. The latest addition to the EV lineup is the Seven, set to hit the market for the 2024 model year.
The Ioniq 7 will be a mid-size crossover, sharing most of its components with the Kia EV9. Features include a fully-electric drivetrain and three rows of seating.
Every once in a while, Mercedes-Benz unveils a crazy high-performance supercar. The Mercedes-AMG One is a prime example.
This plug-in hybrid generates a whopping 1049 horsepower in total! The production of the car officially began earlier this year for the 2023 model year.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
This hardcore hybrid supercar is the final product of a joint venture between Aston Martin, Red Bull Racing, and a couple of other companies.
The concept was first shown in Geneva back in 2017, though a production version hasn't hit the market just yet. The limited-production supercar is going to debut for the 2023 model year.
Maserati has recently unveiled a compact SUV that's going to be sold alongside the successful Levante. The Grecale is going to be less powerful and more affordable than its larger sibling.
The Grecale shares the same platform as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Buyers will be able to choose between a 2.0L flat-four powerplant or a more powerful V6 motor. The Grecale will hit the market for the 2023 model year.
Audi A6 E-Tron
The German automaker has been teasing the new fully electric e-Tron concept for a while now. The A6 E-Tron concept was first shown in Shanghai in early 2021.
The A6 E-Tron will be a direct competitor to the upcoming Mercedes-Benz EQE, built on a platform developed together with Porsche. Audi has not confirmed when the model will officially be unveiled.
Lexus' upcoming RZ, a compact crossover SUV, is one of the first production cars built on the e-Tenga platform developed by Toyota and Subaru.
The new Lexus RZ is also the brand's first-ever fully electric vehicle, powered by a dual-motor drivetrain rated at 308 horsepower. Production is scheduled to begin this year, while the model will officially go on sale for the 2023 model year.
Honda completely redesigned its flagship crossover SUV for the 2023 model year. The new sixth generation of the CRV is going to be offered either with a gasoline motor or a hybrid powerplant.
The new CRV is sleeker both inside and out and features more legroom for second-row passengers. Production commenced earlier this year, and the first units are already rolling out of the factories.
The latest generation of the lavish 7-Series will see a fully electric sibling, the BMW i7.
At first sight, the i7 looks just like any other G70 7-Series. The obvious difference is its fully electric drivetrain, rated at 544 horsepower, that can go over 370 miles on a single charge. Pricing for the 2023 model starts at $120,000.
The German automaker is stepping up its electric car game, and the upcoming EQE is a prime example. This lavish sedan will join Merc's EQ lineup for the 2023 model year.
Buyers will have seven different versions to choose from, all powered by electric motors ranging from 241 all the way to 677 horsepower. In its most powerful variant, the AMG EQE 53 4Matic+ can sprint to 60 miles per hour in just 3.3 seconds.
Polestar, an upscale subsidiary of Volvo, has revealed a high-performance luxury crossover that will join the brand's fully-electric lineup by 2024.
The Polestar 3 will make 510 horsepower from its dual-motor drivetrain. The SUV boasts a gorgeous design inside and out, as well as a luxurious interior with many of the latest high-tech features. Production is scheduled to begin next year.
Dodge is expanding its lineup for the 2023 model year with an exciting plug-in hybrid. The Dodge Hornet is a cool-looking crossover SUV that will hit dealerships across the country in the coming months.
The all-new Dodge Hornet is actually the American version of the previously mentioned Alfa Romeo Tonale. Both cars feature the same drivetrains; the differences between the two models are purely cosmetic.
The British automaker is back in full swing, following a rather uneventful decade dominated by the Evora and the Exige. A handful of new models are scheduled to come in the next few years, including the Emira.
The Emira is a mid-engine sports car that's, like any Lotus, all about performance. The model was unveiled in 2021; production began earlier this year for the 2023 model year.
Hyundai Ioniq 6
The Ioniq 6 is another fully-electric vehicle that will join Hyundai's fully electric Ioniq lineup. Buyers can choose from two battery packs; the more powerful one is rated at 320 horsepower.
The Ioniq 6 is expected to start at around $40,000 for the base model. Production began earlier this year, so the car should be available for the 2023 model year.
Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray
It's official, America's first sports car is going electric. The Corvette E-Ray will be a real game-changer in the world of performance EVs.
Little is known about the electrified Corvette thus far. General Motors promises an all-wheel-drive drivetrain and at least 600 horsepower. The model is expected to be revealed sometime in 2023, likely to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the nameplate.
The previously mentioned CR-V isn't the only exciting Honda to look forward to in 2023. In fact, the Japanese automaker re-introduced the HRV for the American market!
Though some of the previous generations were sold in the US, they're nothing like the upcoming fourth-gen HRV. This SUV, built on the same platform as the Civic, is powered by a fuel-efficient 158-horsepower motor.
Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV
The EQE SUV is yet another addition to Mercedes Benz's fully electric EQ lineup. This luxurious sedan is expected to enter production sometime in 2023, with an official debut scheduled for the 2024 model year.
The EQE SUV will be built on the same platform as the EQE sedan. The power output ranges from 386 to 677 horsepower, depending on the variant.
JDM fans surely recognize the Crown nameplate. The history of this model dates back to the mid-1950s. In Japan, the Crown has been a part of Toyota's lineup for over 70 years.
The latest, sixteenth generation of the Crown will finally make its way to the US! Over the years, the model has evolved from a sedan into a stylish crossover SUV. The new Crown is available for the 2023 model year.
Tesla has been teasing the debut of the second-generation Roadster for a couple of years now. The launch of the model has been pushed back to at least 2023.
The claimed performance makes the wait worthwhile, though. Tesla promises a range of 620 miles and a sprint to 60 miles per hour in as little as 1.1 seconds! Production is scheduled to begin in 2023 for the next model year.
One of Toyota's best-sellers, the Prius, has received a well-deserved makeover for the coming model year. 2023 marks the debut of the fifth generation of the hybrid.
The new Prius will be available with at least two different hybrid powerplants, rated at either 140 or 199 horsepower. As always, fuel efficiency and practicality are some of its strongest features.
The Eletre is going to be the automaker's first-ever production SUV. This quirky-looking EV will be manufactured in China and available for the 2024 model year.
The Eletre will be powered by a dual-motor drivetrain rated at a whopping 591 horsepower, resulting in a 0-60 sprint in under three seconds.
Aston Martin Valhalla
This hybrid supercar may look familiar, as it's based on the same platform as the previously mentioned Aston Martin Valkyrie. The 940-horsepower hybrid drivetrain is mated to a dual-clutch PDK transmission developed by Porsche.
The Valhalla is expected to enter production next year and then go on sale starting for the 2025 model year.
Pininfarina is a real legend in the automotive world. The coachmaker is responsible for designing some of the most iconic Italian cars of all time. This time, Pininfarina decided to make its very own supercar.
The Battista features an eccentric design inside and out, as well as a powerful electric drivetrain. Production began in 2022 for the 2023 model year, strictly limited to just 150 units worldwide.
Toyota GR Super Sport
Gazoo Racing, a motorsport division of Toyota, does a lot more than develop hot hatches. In fact, the GR Super Sport may be one of its craziest projects to date.
To be fair, this hardcore Toyota concept may never see a production version. It's extremely cool nonetheless, and a roadgoing GR Super Sport is definitely worth looking forward to!
