2018 Toyota Camry/Camry Hybrid
The Toyota Camry is the best-selling car in America, but it’s never been known for its dynamic styling or driving prowess. Toyota aims to change that with the 2018 model, which features an edgier design inside and out, a host of standard safety tech, plus more powerful yet efficient engines.
2018 Honda Odyssey
Competition in the minivan segment has heated up in the last couple of years with the arrival of the redesigned Kia Sedona and the all-new Chrysler Pacifica. For 2018, Honda aims to leapfrog the competition with the 2018 Honda Odyssey, which is loaded with family-friendly technology and seating features.
2018 Ford Expedition
The Ford Expedition has been around in the same basic form for a long, long time. For 2018, the Ford Expedition will feature a body made of lightweight aluminum, rather than steel. The weight savings, paired with an efficient new powertrain, is expected to provide significantly improved fuel economy.
2018 GMC Terrain
GMC’s popular Terrain compact SUV has been redesigned for 2018, with a bolder yet curvier look than the outgoing model. However, the big news is under the hood. Three turbocharged engines will be available, including an efficient 1.6-liter turbodiesel. The new gasoline-powered turbos will employ a nine-speed automatic transmission.
2018 Kia Stinger
When you think of high-performance sports sedans, Kia probably doesn’t come to mind. However, when Kia took the wraps off the 2018 Kia Stinger at the Detroit Auto Show, the shapely coupe-like sedan stole the show. It will go on sale in the United States late this year.
2018 Lexus LS
It’s a busy year at Lexus, with two major products due to come to market for 2018. Their flagship sedan, the LS, is completely redesigned, gaining a dynamic coupe-like silhouette that’s nothing like the outgoing model. It’s longer, lower, and wider than before, gaining 1.3 inches in wheelbase.
2018 Toyota CH-R
Arriving in dealer showrooms this April, Toyota’s new small four-door crossover comes with a starting price of $22,500. The 2018 Toyota C-HR brings aggressive looks and sporty intentions to a segment that’s better known for practicality and efficiency. The C-HR was originally destined for Toyota’s now defunct Scion brand.
2018 Audi Q5
The redesigned Audi Q5 arriving this spring will be faster than the last generation and loaded with the latest in safety and infotainment technology. It will feature a four-cylinder turbo, a seven-speed automatic transmission, and standard all-wheel drive that can propel it from zero to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds.
2018 Chevrolet Traverse
The redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is expected in dealerships this fall. It will seat up to eight passengers, and access to the spacious third-row will be enhanced by a second row that both tilts and slides, even with a child seat installed. All three rows will have USB charging ports.
2018 Subaru Crosstrek
Subaru used the Geneva Auto Show to introduce the redesigned 2018 Crosstrek. It’s the model’s first significant update since its 2012 launch. Subaru has yet to release details on the U.S. version of the car, but it retains its rugged design and high ground clearance.
2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar
The Land Rover Family continues to grow with the introduction of the 2018 Range Rover Velar. It will arrive in the U.S. later in 2017 with a base price of $49,900. It rides on the same platform as the Jaguar F-Pace, which is one of our top-ranked luxury compact SUVs.
2018 Ford Mustang
The redesigned 2018 Ford Mustang is going high-tech in both looks and features. The V6 base engine is gone, in favor of the more efficient 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that’s currently available. The venerable 5.0-liter V8 has been updated, and a quick-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission can be paired to either engine.
2018 Lexus LC
An all-new model for Lexus is the 2018 Lexus LC, a high-performance luxury sports coupe derived from its LF-LC concept car. When they go on sale this spring, the LC 500 will carry a starting price tag of $92,000, while the LC 500h hybrid will be priced from $96,510.
2018 Volkswagen Atlas
Arriving this spring will be Volkswagen’s Tennessee-built 2018 Atlas seven-passenger SUV. The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is set to compete in the heart of the midsize SUV segment, alongside rivals including the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander. VW will offer a choice of an efficient four-cylinder or a powerful V6 engine.
2018 Ford EcoSport
Ford is entering the burgeoning subcompact SUV market in the U.S. for 2018 with an updated version of a model that has been sold in other markets for some time. The 2018 Ford EcoSport will be available with a choice of two engines, including a super-efficient 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder.
2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio
Named after a famous mountain pass road in the Italian Alps, the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV continues the reintroduction of the brand into the U.S. market. Leading the lineup will be the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, a 505-horsepower monster that can leap from zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.
2018 Volvo XC60
The Volvo XC60 is set to receive its first major redesign since its initial introduction nine years ago. Volvo says the 2018 XC60 will be one of the safest cars ever built, employing such groundbreaking features as Oncoming Lane Mitigation to prevent head-on collisions.
