What are the most hotly anticipated cars for the 2023 model year? These are the cars we’re excited to see arrive in the market.
Whether we’ve been waiting for a couple of years for a car to go from the design phase to production or its time for the next generation of our favorite vehicles, there are always some cars that we look forward to seeing in the market. The auto market is changing and growing, which makes 2023 a year in which we should see a lot of interesting vehicles arrive.
The 2023 Acura Integra Can’t Get Here Soon Enough
The last time we had the Integra was in 2006 and its been missed ever since. The new 2023 version of this Acura uses the Honda Civic Si as its platform, giving us a car that should be a lot of fun to drive. The A-Spec version is where the fun arrives with the Technology trim that brings a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Is this a car you’ve had your eye on? Get ready, it’s almost here.
Alfa Romeo Expands the Lineup with the Tonale
The Stelvio has been a big hit, at least in Alfa Romeo terms and expectations, and the new Tonale is easily one of the most hotly anticipated cars coming to the market. This little SUV gives us a subcompact Alfa to compete with the other luxury models. With the Tonale, we get something new and more interesting than the same boring names we’ve known for a long time. This impressive little SUV also brings use three turbocharged engines, two of which are hybrid, making this an efficient luxury SUV.
Maserati Gets Into the Action with the Grecale
The new Maserati Grecale is slated to be the least expensive way you can drive a vehicle with Neptune’s Trident on the front of it. The Grecale will have a 2.0-liter mild-hybrid 4-cylinder engine to give it up to 330 horsepower. That’s a mean little four-banger in this SUV. The Trofeo model will have a stronger 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 making 530 horsepower. Either way, this amazing SUV will give us something seriously fun to drive.
The BMW XM is Truly Exciting
How many vehicles have been M-Division exclusive from BMW? Only one, the original M1. Starting in 2023, a second division-exclusive vehicle arrives in the BMW XM. This is one of the most hotly anticipated cars coming to the market. The new XM delivers incredible design language, sharp lines, and some serious power numbers. Nothing is official yet, but this SUV could have a hybrid powertrain that delivers more than 700 horsepower. That’s an incredible number, and certainly fitting in an SUV coming from the M-Division team.
The Z06 Version of the C8 Corvette is Finally Here
Some might have thought that Chevy should have put the Z06 version of the new C8 Corvette to market as soon as this car was released. They didn’t do that, but what they have done is find a way to pull more horsepower from a smaller engine. The new Z06 model delivers 670 horsepower from a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8, which is incredible. This car should be one of the fastest-selling sports cars in the market when it arrives for the 2023 model year.
The Ford Ranger Gets the Raptor Treatment
A new engine is added to the Ranger lineup and we finally see the Raptor model of this midsize truck. This has been one of the most hotly anticipated cars of the 2023 model year. The new Raptor version of the Ranger brings a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that should churn out 400 horsepower. This truck brings a ton of off-road upgrades to make it worthy of wearing the Raptor name. This truck will fly out of dealerships when it arrives.
The Sleekness of the Hyundai Ioniq 6 is Nearly Here
The first EV sedan entering the Hyundai line is the Ioniq 6 and it looks incredible. Very few luxury cars look as good as this Hyundai, which makes you wonder if the lines between Hyundai and Genesis have been blurred. We expect the battery range and power to be similar to the Ioniq 5, which shares its platform with the new Ioniq 6 model. If you’ve bene looking for a sophisticated EV from Hyundai, this is the car you’ve been waiting to see.
The Lexus RZ Starts the EV Process
Lexus is one of the car brands that has announced it will become an all-electric brand in the future. The first foray into this arena is with the Lexus RZ. This new SUV is one of the most hotly anticipated cars, even if its not one that we expect much from. The RZ shared the new eTNGA platform with the Toyota bZ4X and Subaru Solterra. The steering of the Lexus RZ is advanced, giving is a new steering by wire system that could be the future.
Toyota Delivers with the GR Corolla
The Toyota GR Yaris arrived last year and we looked around and couldn’t find this new hot hatch anywhere in the United States. Thankfully, we won’t be left out of the new GR Corolla excitement. This new hot hatch bring a powerful 1.6-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine and an AWD setup. If this is the car you’ve been waiting for, you need to know how to shift gears, it only comes with a manual transmission.
A Unique Ferrari Enters the Mix
Anytime the name Ferrari is mentioned that vehicle is a hotly anticipated car, but this time its for something different. The new Ferrari Purosangue is an SUV. That’s right, Ferrari is building and SUV and packing it with V12 goodness to make it one of the most powerful and glorious models we can find in the market. This new SUV is the first Ferrari to be built with four doors as a production model. Its about time Ferrari got into the luxury SUV game and the Purosangue could be the perfect addition to the lineup.
