A few fresh and tasty models to sink your teeth into

With 2018 now officially upon us, it’s a great time to look ahead in anticipation of all the great rides set to make their way onto public roads for the very first time. As such, we put together a quick list of five SUVs to look out for in the new year.

Jeep Wrangler

With its recent debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, the new-gen JL-series Jeep Wrangler heads to dealers a little later this month, which means we’ll soon see this refreshed off-roading legend prowling the streets. We like the new Wrangler so much, we gave it a spot on our Best Vehicles of the Year list, and we think buyers will agree – with new powertrain options, the latest tech in the cabin, and every bit of the older model’s capability in the rough stuff, this one is shaping up to be a quite the tempting buy.

2019 Lamborghini Urus
Lambo’s first SUV since the LM002 was discontinued in 1993 with just 328 models produced

In a big break from tradition, Lambo is applying its go-fast knowledge and outlandish design chops to the SUV segment, giving us this – the new Urus (yeah, we know all about the LM002, but it was neither quick nor did it look like a proper Lambo). The Urus definitely has the sharp lines and geometric shapes we’d expect from the Italian Raging Bull, while under the hood, the SUV gets a 4.0-liter V-8 stuffed with boost by a pair of turbochargers. Top speed is rated 190 mph and the 0-to-60 mph sprint is done in about 3.5 seconds.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan

As another newcomer to the SUV segment, Rolls-Royce’s approach differs from Lamborghini’s, focusing on lavishness and opulence as opposed to flat-out speed. Inside, we’re expecting a layout similar to such outstanding luxury barges as the Phantom, plus there should be V-12 power for motivation. Pricing will be deep in the six-figure range – we’re guessing a figure around $350,000.

Full details are still forthcoming, but so far, the new Q3 is looking like it’ll be quite a solid crossover for the latest model year. Expect updated MQB underpinnings under the skin, as well as tweaked exterior styling and a full line of diesel and gasoline engine options to complement, not to mention the latest and greatest safety tech.

The Swedes have really been on a roll lately, and the XC40 looks to continue that momentum with an entry-level compact offering oodles of style and comfort. Look for handsome design for the techno-infused soft-touch interior, while the engine selection will include a turbocharged four-cylinder in a variety of tunes.
