2022 Ford Maverick - A New Compact Truck Aimed At The Hyundai Santa Cruz
Ford has come up with a new compact pickup truck called the Maverick. The Maverick was leaked and spotted multiple times in the past. Ford teased in last week and gave us a glimpse of what to expect. Now, the truck is finally out. The Maverick will serve as the entry-level truck in Ford’s lineup and will slot below the Ranger. It will be offered with two different engine options, including a hybrid, with front-wheel-drive configuration as standard and an all-wheel-drive system as optional. The best part, however, is its price. The 2022 Ford Maverick is launched with a starting price of $19,995. Not bad, huh?
The Genesis G70 Shooting Brake Is A Tasty Piece of Forbidden Fruit
Europe’s wagon market just got a little bit bigger, as Korean brand Genesis is looking to take its piece of the pie with the all-new G70 Shooting Brake. Of course, it’s not a shooting brake as you or I would think of it – as in it only has two doors – so it’s really just another wagon. A fine looking wagon, at that. Featuring the G70’s sporty front end paired with a sloping rear roof and tons of cargo room, the G70 Shooting Brake has a lot to offer. Unfortunately, it won’t land in the United States because, well, we’re SUV people, right?

2022 Maserati Levante Hybrid
Maserati has revealed its second hybrid based on the same technology that powers the Ghibli Hybrid. Just like its sedan peer, the Levante Hybrid is more of a mild-hybrid in the sense that it doesn’t have an electric motor, just a booster that brings more push at low revs.

2022 Second-gen Toyota 86 Arrives With A Bigger Engine, More Power, And An Attitude
Toyota sparked quite a buzz when it announced a joint reveal with Subaru a few days back. The online stream was supposed to happen on the Toyota Gazoo page, so we knew it would be a performance car. Fast forward to the present day and the secret is finally out.
The car under the wraps was the second-gen of the 86 sports car, which is essentially a 2022 Subaru BRZ with the Toyota badge. The GR 86 comes with a bigger four-pot engine, a rear-wheel-drive configuration, and a quicker 0-62 mph time compared to its predecessor. Does anything else really matter?
The 2022 Nissan Z Will Cost You $87 Per Horsepower
New details popped up online about the upcoming Nissan Z, including the fact that it won’t be called the 400Z as everyone thought, but simply the Z everywhere in the world except for Japan, which will get it as the Fairlady Z. Mind you, the following bits of information did not come through Nissan’s official communications channels, so do apply the pinch of salt rule when digesting them.
It’s A Dirty Shame We Can’t Have the New Peugeot 308 In The United States
Peugeot is not coming to the U.S. anytime soon which means America will not be getting the new 308 hatchback. In Europe, the 308 will do battle against a select roster of compact cars, including the VW Golf, Opel/Vauxhall Astra, Renault Megane, Ford Focus, and Mazda 3.
2021 Audi Q5 Sportback
For the folks who like their SUVs with coupè-like sloping rooflines, here’s Audi’s latest product – the Q5 Sportback. Audi calls them Crossover Utility Vehicles, and the Q5 Sportback is the third product in this lineup, following the Q3 Sportback and the e-tron Sportback. The Q5 Sportback is Audi’s take on the BMW X4 and the Mercedes GLC Coupe. The Q5 Sportback commands a premium of $4,500 over the SUV style for mainly an exterior appearance package, sleeker looks, and some other minor aesthetic upgrades. Is it worth it? Well, you tell us.

2021 DS 9
The DS brand has established itself as Citroen’s luxury brand. After the DS3 and DS7 Crossback, the French marque has brought out its flagship – the DS9. It’s been too long since Citroen has had any form of a full-size saloon. Finally, in 2021, they have filled the void. The DS9 aims to compete with the likes of Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-Series. A bold move, indeed. Those, familiar with the history of French manufacturers know that back in the 1950s, the most comfortable and revolutionary cars came from France. Can the DS9 recapture the old glory?
2022 Jeep Wagoneer
After being in production for three decades, Jeep sent the Wagoneer nameplate into exile. There were hushed talks about its revival in the better half of the last decade. Finally, in 2020, the company unveiled a concept SUV with this revived moniker, albeit with the ‘Grand’ prefix. Six months later, the company revealed that the yesteryear badge will be stamped on two SUVs – one called the Wagoneer and the other, the Grand Wagoneer.
The Wagoneer is the mellowed-down, less-luxurious version of the Grand Wagoneer. It comes with a different engine, fewer tech features, but retains the same brobdingnagian size and dimensions. Does it have enough firepower to beat its American rivals?
2021 Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 4MATIC+
After a successful stint in its first generation, Mercedes has decided to introduce the second-generation of the GLA model. The AMG-tagged GLA 45 will be available in two variants – 45 and 45 S. Both of them feature the same mill, but different power outputs. They are powered by a new four-cylinder turbo engine with a four-wheel-drive system and an eight-speed automatic transmission. There are also some interior and exterior tweaks that make the model fresh. Unfortunately, the GLA 45 S won’t make it Stateside.
2021 Hyundai Bayon
If it is not broke, do not fix it. The world’s appetite for crossovers and SUVs is still going strong and as long as people will buy these high-riding people carriers, carmakers will do everything in their power to milk the trend.
Hyundai is one of those carmakers and the milking will now be done via its new Europe-headed crossover, the Bayon. This is everything you need to know about the car that is supposed to poach customers from the likes of Ford Puma and Nissan Juke.
2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
Jeep launched the concept version of the Grand Wagoneer back in September 2020 and it gave us a glimpse of what to expect from the production-spec SUV. The automaker revived the Wagoneer moniker from the dead only for it to be branched out into two different SUVs – the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer. The Wagoneer will come with a smaller engine and fewer goodies compared to the Grand Wagoneer.
The Grand Wagoneer is the epitome of luxury, to say the least. Aside from its massive presence, the SUV comes with a plush interior, 75 inches of a total screen display in the cabin, and a price tag of $111,000 for the top-end model!
