The automotive industry is coming out of what one might look at as two of the craziest years ever. Car prices and supplies have been all over the map, and things likely won’t stabilize until deep into 2023. That said, the next model year looks impressive and will bring a host of new and exciting cars, trucks, and SUVs to market.
Many automakers are deep into plans for full electrification, while others are taking a more cautious approach. That’s why we see some companies with new models and updates for 2023, with more subtle updates from others. The year looks promising for prospective electric vehicle (EV) buyers, but it’s also going to be quite a ride for performance buyers, with plenty of quick models from around the world.
