2021 was a momentous year in the automotive world. We finally drove some long-awaited standout vehicles, like
the Ford Bronco, the Rivian R1T pickup and the all-new Toyota Tundra, and were smitten by unexpectedly great cars like the plucky, 40-mpg Ford Maverick. But 2022 has the potential to be an even more revolutionary year, as the electric conversion kicks into high gear...but not without some exciting last gasps from internal combustion V8s. Here are the cool new cars we can't wait to drive in 2022.
Mercedes AMG GT 63 S E Performance
Hybrid once meant a Toyota Prius, or something boring very much like it. But now, a "hybrid" can be Mercedes dropping a V8 PHEV performance car with staggering output. Horsepower: 831 Torque: 1,033 lb-ft
the Corvette Stingray. Chevrolet is finally building on it with the Z06, which packs 670 horsepower from a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8. Horsepower: 670 Redline: 8,600 RPM
GMC is reviving the Hummer nameplate. It will start as an all-electric super truck with better off-road specs than
a Jeep Wrangler and accelerate from 0-60 mph like a Porsche without using a drop of gas. Horsepower: 1,000 0-60 in WTF Mode: 3.0 sec
The cars we love? They're all about to become EVs. And BMW's new i4 is essentially an electric version of
the new M3, packing more than 530 horsepower (and a giant faux grille, of course). EPA Range: 301 miles Starting MSRP: $55,400
BMW is also launching the iX, the brand's electric take on the X5, which seems poised to become one of their best-sellers. And, yes, it too sports a giant kidney grille.
Horsepower: 524 Starting MSRP: $83,200
The driving purist's Toyobaru is back for round two. We
already drove the Subaru BRZ , and we can't wait to try its new GR-branded Toyota sibling. Horsepower: 228 Starting MSRP: $27,700
About half of new Mazda buyers plunk down for
a CX-5. For 2022, they have a more rugged, cooler-looking and Subaru Outback-like alternative, the CX-50. Horsepower: 250 Torque: 320 lb-ft
It's been a long, long,
loooooooong time coming, but the replacement for the aged Nissan 370Z has, at long last, been revealed. Horsepower: 400 Arrival: Spring 2022
