What is a new car model? New car models wear nameplates that either didn’t exist before or are resurrected from the past. Examples among 2021 model-year vehicles include the Kia Seltos, a new nameplate, and the Ford Bronco, a resurrected nameplate. Sometimes, a new model is based on an existing vehicle but has a dramatically different mission, such as the new Ram 1500 TRX or the Volvo XC40 Recharge P8.
A redesigned flagship Mercedes-Benz sedan is coming soon, and it promises to set lofty standards in terms of design, comfort, quality, safety, and technology. From its active ambient cabin lighting and Energizing seat kinetics to its My MBUX digital assistant and augmented reality head-up display, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will be the full-size luxury sedan against which all competitors are measured.
Most private sellers aren't as experienced in negotiating as dealers, nor do they want to negotiate as car dealerships do. Use this to your advantage and make a fair but aggressive offer. If the seller turns it down, be persistent and counter with a slightly higher amount. Remember, it might be OK to spend a little more than you'd hoped if you found the perfect used car.
YP - The Real Yellow PagesSM - helps you find the right local businesses to meet your specific needs. Search results are sorted by a combination of factors to give you a set of choices in response to your search criteria. These factors are similar to those you might use to determine which business to select from a local Yellow Pages directory, including proximity to where you are searching, expertise in the specific services or products you need, and comprehensive business information to help evaluate a business's suitability for you. “Preferred” listings, or those with featured website buttons, indicate YP advertisers who directly provide information about their businesses to help consumers make more informed buying decisions. YP advertisers receive higher placement in the default ordering of search results and may appear in sponsored listings on the top, side, or bottom of the search results page.
There is more to modern vehicles than pickup trucks and SUVs. Some people still want to buy cars, which tend to be less expensive, more efficient, and better to drive on paved roads. Naturally, there isn’t as much activity in this space as there used to be, but we’ve got the new cars for 2021 listed here in alphabetical order. And, as time progresses, be sure to look for electric vehicles from non-traditional car companies, such as the high-end Lucid Air, which appears set to compete head-to-head with the Tesla Model S and others.
TrueCar offers new and used cars online. With TrueCar’s new-car shopping program, you choose the vehicle make and model that you want and, optionally, filter for specific details. TrueCar then outputs a market average price estimate, the MRSP, your estimated savings and any vehicles for sale in your area that match your description. TrueCar’s used-car shopping program is similar, allowing you to choose the car make and model that you’re interested in before showing you local results.
Once you find the car you want, you'll want to move fast so it isn't sold out from under you. So it's a good idea to get your financing set up before you begin searching for your car. If you're paying cash, there is little to do except make sure you have the funds available to withdraw cash or get a cashier's check when it's time to do the deal. If you're paying all cash for a used car from a private party, consider doing the deal in a public place.
Redesigned this year, the 2021 GMC Yukon comes in standard and extended-length versions, the latter known as the Yukon XL. With this new SUV, GMC dramatically increases interior space, making it more comfortable for passengers and more accommodating of cargo. Naturally, in addition to SLE and SLT trim, the popular Denali returns, along with a new AT4 off-road model.
The prices on CarMax are non-negotiable, meaning there’s no need to haggle. The site exclusively offers used vehicles. However, there are a moderate amount of cars with very low mileage. CarMax spends an average of 12 hours prepping each vehicle for purchase — each car must pass a 125-point inspection and undergo a thorough cleaning before being put up for sale.
An electric vehicle with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive and a 5-door sportback design for maximum utility, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is positioned as an SUV by the automaker. You can be the judge as to whether it meets the standard. Four trims and two battery packs offering up to 300 miles of range make this Mustang-influenced EV a clear Tesla competitor.
Which SUV is redesigned in 2021? The better question might be: which one isn’t? Clearly, consumers want SUVs, and car companies are more than happy to create and build as many as customers will buy. Upcoming electric SUVs from non-traditional companies are also on the way, such as the Bollinger B1 and Rivian R1S, and many other SUVs will be adding electrification in one form or another. In the section that follows, you’ll find the new SUVs for 2021, and beyond.
The Acura MDX is, according its maker, the most successful 7-passenger luxury SUV in history. Now, the 2022 Acura MDX is about to arrive, improving on its predecessor in terms of power, performance, technology, and safety. It looks more upscale inside and out, too, and in top specification will offer a 25-speaker high-end audio system. A 3.5-liter V-6 will be standard, with a twin-turbocharged V-6 in the racy Type S model.
With the redesigned 2022 Volkswagen Golf R, VW unleashes the most powerful Golf it has ever built. With 315 horsepower, standard torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, and a full hardware upgrade to support maximum performance, the new Golf R screams to 60 mph in a claimed 4.6 seconds and tops out at 155 mph. Best of all, it retains its stealthily anonymous design. Don’t look for massive air dams or giant wings here.
When you take delivery, either at home or at the dealership, have the salesperson walk around the vehicle with you. Check that there are no scratches, dents or dings. Make sure you get the owner's manual, a spare key and the original window sticker. The window sticker shows you the price and a list of your vehicle's features, which is useful later when you sell or trade in. Most dealers include a full tank of gas and a detail with your new vehicle, so ensure you receive those. Now is also the time to ask any last-minute questions you may have about the vehicle. Ask the salesperson anything you want to know, from how to pair your phone to how to use all the latest advanced safety features.
