2022 Honda Civic Type R
With the introduction of the 11th generation Honda Civic lineup, much anticipation has surrounded the release of the enthusiast-oriented Civic Type R. Although final details have yet to be released, the next-gen Civic Type R is expected to break from the polarizing styling of the 10th generation variant with more carefully sculpted body lines while maintaining its aggressive stance. It’s also expected to retain its signature rear wing spoiler and other aerodynamic styling cues. Performance has remained the main selling point of the Type R and turbocharged exhilaration is expected to return to the 2022 version. Enthusiasts will also be pleased to learn that the Civic Type R is expected to retain its manual transmission as an option. Track-tested suspension tuning and exclusive performance options have made the Civic Type R a coveted model among driving enthusiasts. With several other hot hatchbacks returning with refreshed designs, the Honda Civic Type R is still expected to challenge even its most established rivals when it makes its return in 2022.
2022 Jeep Wagoneer
Say hello to the newest member of the Jeep model lineup. The return of the legendary Wagoneer nameplate means that shoppers now have a new option when shopping for a full-size SUV. Infused with proven Jeep capabilities, the 3-row Wagoneer can be equipped with an optional 5.7-liter V8 engine with eTorque and 8-speed automatic transmission. Other off-road amenities include a Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System and your choice of three individual rugged 4×4 systems to help you conquer any obstacle that stands in your way. You’ll experience a luxurious experience inside the cabin as well thanks to optional 24-way adjustable power seats that feature massage and memory capability inside Grand Wagoneer models. An industry-exclusive McIntosh® Audio System has been engineered specifically for the interior of the Wagoneer, giving you a concert-quality listening experience. The Jeep Wagoneer also sets a new benchmark for its class with over 120 standard and available safety and security features.
2023 RAM Dakota
Expected to cause a stir in the midsize pickup truck segment, the upcoming RAM Dakota will benefit from all the strengths of its full-size siblings. While the Dakota nameplate has been absent from the market since 2011, the return of a new midsize truck from the RAM brand looks to capitalize on the growing demand for pickups in America. Although there is speculation that the new Dakota will share some similarities with its Jeep Gladiator cousin, it will have a very familiar appearance to those familiar with the RAM full-size truck lineup. Some of the likely powertrain options include the proven 3.6-liter V6 and recently introduced 3.0-liter diesel V6 for those looking for maximum efficiency and towing capabilities. Already praised across the industry for its responsiveness and intuitive operation, it’s also expected that the upcoming RAM Dakota will benefit from the innovative Uconnect infotainment system.
2022 Volkswagen Golf R
One of the most coveted and beloved hot-hatchbacks in history, the Volkswagen Golf R is returning with a complete redesign both inside and out. As the pinnacle of Volkswagen performance, the 8th-generation Golf R is the fastest and most powerful version of the Golf. Beneath the hood lies a potent 315-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that’s capable of propelling the Golf R from 0 to 60 in under 4.7 seconds on the way to a top track speed of 155 MPH. Other signature performance features include its 4Motion® all-wheel-drive system with Vehicle Dynamics Manager (VDM), enlarged front brakes, electronic differential locks (XDS®), and the DCC® adaptive damping system. The perfect command center for your drive, the interior of the Golf R also impresses with bespoke features like Nappa leather seating surfaces and blue accents. Poised styling featuring track-inspired aerodynamic design cues help solidify the award-winning position of the Volkswagen Golf R in the eyes of performance enthusiasts.
