Several new cars are expected to hit the road for the 2023 model year. Most carmakers unveil their latest models at auto shows, but some are scheduled to arrive at dealerships before summer. Those models include the Toyota Sequoia, which is built on the foundation of a Tundra pickup truck. This car is expected to come with a new powertrain, featuring a half-and-half gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain.
Another 2023 model is the Chevrolet Camaro. This sports car continues to be largely unchanged from the 2022 model, although it is expected to get a few new paint colors. It will also come with a larger, 12.4-inch digital instrument display, and a new front end. It will be available with the RS package, which features black 20-inch split five-spoke aluminum wheels.
The Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV will also be on the market in 2023. It will have a roomy interior and low aerodynamic drag factor. It will be offered in two trim levels, EQE 350 and EQE 500. It will also come with a six-speed automatic transmission and a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 275 horsepower. The top-of-the-line Trofeo will be powered by a more powerful 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with 523 horsepower.
In addition to the above, Nissan is set to release the Rogue FY2023, which is a 1.3-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 300 horsepower. The coupe is equipped with a six-speed manual and a nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The vehicle will also feature GR-FOUR all-wheel drive. The vehicle is expected to be priced at about $32,000.
The 2023 model year will also see a mid-life update for the Hyundai Seltos, which will receive subtle design changes and ADAS. The Seltos will have a digital instrument cluster, and it will come with a touchscreen-based infotainment system that uses touchscreen-based controls for most of the features.
The Ford Mustang is getting a minor refresh for the 2023 model year. This vehicle will continue to use a 5.0-liter V8 engine. It will also be offered in a coupe version, which is the first of its kind for the SUV. It will have a new front end and an open interior, with a large 12.4-inch digital instrument display.
Porsche is planning to expand its EV lineup in 2023. In addition to the Porsche Taycan, which is equipped with a plug-in hybrid, the company is also planning to introduce a new EV that will be more affordable. It is expected to be unveiled at the first quarter of 2023.
The Honda CR-V will receive a major redesign for the 2023 model year. It will be added with more standard safety features, including more airbags, and improved fuel efficiency. The vehicle will also have a new design, with a more SUV-like appearance. It will feature more active safety technology, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety will be beefing up its crash test standards.
The Audi E-Tron Avant concept suggests that the new model will feature a dual-motor setup, and that it will have a 100-kilowatt-hour battery. This should be enough to lend the car a 430-mile range on the WLTP cycle.
