Most Anticipated Vehicles in 2021

This list of most anticipated vehicles for calendar year 2021 could be twice as long or more – we think it’ll be that good of a year


  • 2021 is shaping up to be another banner year for new cars, SUVs, and trucks.

  • EVs and SUVs will make up the bulk of new introductions.


In many instances, in 2021, car manufacturers will be launching the final petrol-powered versions of these models. As a final hoorah and nod to the ICE, most if not all will be exceptional performers, which has us quite excited.

There’s no doubt that EVs will sooner rather than later take over this list and frankly, this is not bad news. So far, we’ve sampled all new EVs currently on the market or that are soon to arrive and with few if any exceptions, all impress. For the moment though, we still have a soft spot for the old internal combustion engine.

As noted, this list could be much longer and include exotic brands and models but in the real world, these are the vehicles that truly matter.

Here are our most anticipated vehicles to launch or that we’ll drive in 2021, in alphabetical order:
