We are excited about the upcoming years because we expect to see some top-notch vehicles. Besides sports cars and supercars, a lot of trucks and SUVs are scheduled to arrive. These large models have become all-around everyday vehicles, and everyone wants them. Here are some of the trucks and SUVs that will go on sale by 2022.
20. 2019 Audi Q4
The smaller Q4 will join models such as the Q3, Q5, Q7 and Q8 and it will compete against the likes of Range Rover Evoque and the upcoming BMW X2. Audi will use VW Group’s MQB platform to underpin the car, which will roll out of the plant in Hungary.
19. 2019 Audi Q8 / RS
The German manufacturer presented the Q8 concept at the Detroit Auto Show, and we cannot wait to see this car in production. According to the reports, the top-shelf Q8 will cost over $100K whereas it will be equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 hybrid powertrain that delivers 443 horsepower. Meanwhile, the RS version will use the same engine system, but the complete output will reach 476 hp.
18. 2019 Audi SQ2
The name of this model has not been confirmed yet. However, the SQ2, as we are going to call it, will most likely come with a turbocharged 2.0-liter I4 engine that is carried over from the facelifted S3 Sportback. This engine in the hatchback is capable of delivering 310 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque so there is a possibility that the SUV will come with even more power.
17. 2019 Ford Ranger
One of the most-expected comebacks involves the Ford Ranger that hasn’t stepped foot on the American soil in years. The new model was presented in Detroit earlier this year and we already know that the new Ranger will look awesome. Blue Oval plans to combine the ongoing European design with some of the F-150 styling cues as this model will arrive later in 2018.
16. 2019 Land Rover Defender
The new enhanced Land Rover Defender is supposed to be delivered in 2019 and what we should expect are unibody construction, different body styles, soft-top and four-door options as well as some other surprises. Under its hood, a four-cylinder Ingenium gas and diesel engines will be packed, and this new model will be offered in the States.
15. 2019 Range Rover Velar SVR
Even though the new Range Rover Velar already joined the lineup, rumors suggest that another, even hotter version is being designed. Of course, if we are talking about the high-performance Velar, it will come with an SVR badge and Jag’s supercharged 5.0-liter V8. We expect the new SVR to make a debut sometime in 2018.
14. 2019 Rolls-Royce Cullinan
According to the luxury carmaker, the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan 4×4 is a “high-bodied car” so don’t you dare calling it an SUV. The car will blend “the luxury elements from the Phantom with true 4×4 capabilities,” which sounds good to us. There is a possibility that the Cullinan will have a different name considering that this one is used as an internal designation.
13. 2019 SEAT Flagship SUV
SEAT is looking to upgrade and expand their SUV lineup, and thus, a new flagship model will be introduced. This one will be assembled in Germany and the buyers will be able to choose from a variety of diesel and gas engines. Volkswagen Group will supply the MQB platform whereas the production model is expected to have some similarities with the Skoda Kodiaq and VW Tiguan Allspace.
12. 2019 Tesla Model Y
The long-anticipated Tesla Model Y will finally make a debut. This vehicle will sit below the big brother, Model X. Even though Model Y will be Tesla’s new car, it will boast some technologies we have already seen in carmakers earlier creations.
11. 2019 Tesla Pickup
Elon Musk is a man with the plan. According to the popular “Master Plan” Tesla is expected to launch a “new kind of pickup truck.” Even though this reference is not quite clear, we are looking forward to the idea of instant torque in this type of vehicle. Moreover, the new Tesla’s Pickup will be attractive and if it does arrive, it will be in 2019, or later.
10. 2020 Alfa Romeo Castello
Another fancy model is expected to go on sale, and this one is the courtesy of Italian carmaker, Alfa Romeo. The new Castello is said to be more upscale than vehicles such as the Kamal and the Stelvio. The Castello is expected to sit at the very top of Alfa Romeo’s SUV range, and the buyers will have an option to choose between different engines. One of the options that will be used is the turbocharged six-cylinder powerplant.
9. 2020 Alfa Romeo Kamal
We have already mentioned the Kamal above. It appears that Alfa Romeo is ready to strengthen their SUV range with the introduction of two powerful SUVs. Unlike the Castello, the Kamal will be smaller, and it will substitute the current MiTo hatchback.
8. 2020 Ferrari SUV
If Lamborghini can create an SUV, why should Ferrari be an exception? According to Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne, the high-riding vehicle is confirmed, but in order to develop and produce the car, the company will need about 30 months. The project is codenamed the FX16 and it will use the same platform as the vehicle which replaces the GTC4Lusso.
7. 2020 Ford Bronco
We already know a lot about the Ford Bronco as it is probably the hottest model we are waiting to arrive. The thing about Bronco is that we are not entirely sure what to expect, and there are some indications that the new Bronco will look like the Everest. While we hope that this is not true and that the Bronco will be the Bronco, the new-old model will be produced at Michigan plant.
6. 2020 Ford Ranger Raptor
After the Ford Ranger hits the market, Blue Oval will treat this car with special care, and the new, even hotter version will be called the Ranger Raptor. We have already seen some spy shots of the off-road pickup, and some of the features we expect to be included here are larger shocks, more aggressive design and a plausible diesel engine. That is all we know at this point about the new Ranger Raptor.
5. 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
According to various reports, the Grand Wagoneer will finally be produced, and it will use a lot of the elements from the Grand Cherokee. However, Jeep will need to do something to differentiate these two models and thus, a few luxurious features will be added to the mix, whereas the company’s CEO, Mike Manley, says that the price tag which exceeds $130,000 “could be possible.”
4. 2020 Maserati Levante GTS
Ferrari never said that they would produce an SUV and instead of that, they used the term “high-riding vehicle,” but there is another exotic carmaker from Italy, which is interested in entering the high-performance SUV race. Rumor has it that a Maserati Levante GTS is currently under construction. If it arrives on the market, it will pack a 3.8-liter biturbo V8 engine good for 520 ponies.
3. 2020 Mercedes-Maybach SUV
The success of the Bentley Bentayga and Maserati Levante might inspire Maybach to produce an SUV even though this is far-fetched. Of course, the Maybach SUV would be all about luxury and in order to compete with Rolls-Royce, the Germans would add V8 and V12 engines to the mix.
2. 2020 Ram 1500 Hellcat
FCA has always been about power, and we wouldn’t be surprised if Ram stuffed the Hellcat 6.2-liter supercharged V8 into the next-generation Ram 1500. The company is already testing the V6 engine in this vehicle, but we would be thrilled if the V8 made its way under the Ram’s hood.
1. 2022 VW I.D. Buzz
Last on our list is the long-awaited Volkswagen Bus. The Germans have announced the Bus’ return at the Pebble Beach Concours. The vehicle will be based on the I.D. Buzz concept, but we will have to wait until 2021 or 2022.
