8 Upcoming SUVs and Crossovers We’re Most Looking Forward To
Wherever you look, it seems there are more SUVs than any other vehicle class, and that might be true. SUVs and crossovers have become so popular and are taking over the new car market in America. From the looks of things, this dominance isn’t ending anytime soon. In their bid to outshine their competitors, many automakers have announced a slate of new sports cars to be released before 2025.
Like all other vehicle segments, electrification fever is also affecting the SUV market. Although there are only a handful of electric SUVs on the roads, we expect these electric SUVs to flood the market soon. From gas-powered models to economical subcompacts, we take a look at some of the most anticipated SUVs that have been announced or are currently in production.
8 2024 Chevrolet Equinox Electric
Chevrolet plans to bolster its electric vehicle lineup in 2024 with models like the 2024 Silverado EV, 2023 Chevy Blazer SUV and 2024 Equinox EV. According to Chevrolet, the Equinox would be an affordable and functional compact SUV and should cost around $30 $000.
The Equinox is said to be available in RS and LT trims, and we expect it to have around 300 miles of range. In teaser videos released by Chevrolet, the EV has a sleek grille, tiny projector headlights and a charging port just in front of the driver’s door. Built on Chevy’s Ultium platform, the Equinox would need at least 250 horsepower to compete with the 266 horsepower Mustang Mach-E.
seven 2024 GMC Hummer Electric SUV
Scheduled to debut in 2023, the 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV is a reimagining of the unmistakable Hummer nameplate. This time the off-road beast is fully electric and features impressive power, top-of-the-line technology and four-wheel steering. GMC plans to release the SUV in four different versions – EV2, EV2X, EV3X and Edition 1.
Both the EV2 and EV2X are expected to feature a twin-motor setup that produces 625 hp and 7,400 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the EV3X and Edition 1 should be equipped with three engines capable of delivering 830 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque.
6 Polestar 3
Polestar already has two electric cars under its belt; the 609-hp Polestar 1 hybrid and its first all-electric model, the Polestar 2. The automaker has released teasers of its new electric SUV, the 2023 Polestar 3, which will premiere in October. Marketed as an “Aerodynamic Electric Performance SUV”, the vehicle will be manufactured in the United States at Volvo’s car production center.
Polestar has revealed that the luxury SUV will offer autonomous driving in the future, powered by NVIDIA’s LiDAR sensor and centralized computing system. Additionally, the SUV will come with a twin-motor drivetrain setup and a range of 373 miles.
5 Lucid Project Gravity
The Lucid Project Gravity is perhaps one of the most anticipated SUVs. While there are very few details about Lucid’s latest offering, we know it would surely come with plenty of space. With the Lucid Space Concept, which uses a compact battery and miniaturized EV drivetrain, the SUV seats seven adults and is expected to have the most frunk of any EV.
Company officials have hinted that the electric vehicle will have a range of over 400 miles and could be among the fastest electric vehicles to charge. While originally scheduled for the second half of 2023, logistical issues pushed production into the first half of 2024.
4 Porsche Macan EV
Porsche has confirmed that its best-selling model since 2016 – the Porsche Macan – will be offered in EV form, but gearheads will have to wait a bit before they can get a feel for the luxury crossover. From all indications, the VE should share many exterior details with its gas-powered sibling.
However, we expect subtle changes such as thinner headlights and an EV-style grille. Porsche is set to use the same 800-volt charging system as the Taycan EV, but we’re expecting more than the 227-mile range offered by the Taycan.
3 2023 Chevy Blazer
Unlike most of the other highly anticipated SUVs and crossovers on this list, the 2023 Chevy Blazer is a gas-powered model. The 2023 Chevy Blazer is a mid-size SUV with plenty of room for passengers and cargo. For model year 2023, the SUV gets a makeover which includes new lighting elements and a new grille.
The SUV will continue to have two engine options. The first is a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that can produce 228 horsepower and has a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. While the other is a 3.6-liter V6 capable of producing 308 horsepower and towing up to 4,500 pounds.
2 Honda Prologue 2024
Scheduled to make its debut in the latter part of 2023, the Honda Prologue will be born from a collaboration between Honda and GM. General Motors will supply the powertrain and battery packs, and based on sketches released by Honda, the SUV is the same size as the Honda CR-V.
Vehicle details are a little hazy, but Honda has announced that the styling of the Prologue will prioritize aerodynamics. The Prologue will be at the forefront of Honda’s quest to transition to an all-electric lineup by 2040.
1 Ferrari Purosangue 2023
Rival sports car brands such as Lamborghini and Porsche have produced SUVs that have performed well in the market. This makes it easier to imagine a Ferrari SUV. Rumored to be called Purosangue, which means thoroughbred, so many details of the SUV are still shrouded in mystery.
For one, it’s not yet clear whether it will sport a V12 or a turbocharged V8. However, we know for sure that the SUV will be equipped with an AWD system. Whether the Ferrari Purosangue comes as a hybrid model remains to be seen, but the SUV market will surely appreciate another high-performance sport.
